Anonymous asked: Hey man - First, props on the blog. Second, I really like the fit of your blazer in that last pic with the umbrella. Any tips on achieving a similar look? Is there a brand I should be looking for? Or do you have a particular set of alterations you get to achieve that effect?
Thanks man. Look for an unstructured blazer with fairly open quarters. I’m wearing a Boglioli in that picture and they are some of the best around. Other brands to look into would be Piombo, LBM 1911, Cantarelli, Isaia, etc depending on price range. Many of the Italians make similar jackets. Once you get one that fits in the shoulders/chest, take in the sleeves, eliminate collar roll, and nip the waist to get some nice suppression.
