I know what you mean SAR…..i can say that I personally have a Blazer that is similar to this …….as it is an outerwear piece but not to be worn over a another jackt or suit necessarily. I would call it an AMPHIBOUS piece …since it can seve as outerwear annd if you go inside you don’t have to take it back as it sort oof metamorphisizes into a casual jacket…..I love it!!…altough I found myself not being able to wear at as much as I thought I would considering mine is velvet. THANKS
I agree with you Sart that it appears to be outerwear…just very slim fitting. It seems to be a great piece because of it’s versatility. I love his entire look. It is refreshing and modern yet with a classic sensibility. My goodness, there are so many attractive men in NY!
Looks like a light outerwear piece to me, meant to be worn exactly as he’s wearing it, with a sweater underneath. It’s a nice topper, actually. Very clean lines but just enough details to make it interesting.
I have this jacket also. It’s Oliver Spencer (bought Fall 2005). It’s a slim fit, so a suit underneath would not work. it also has a belt (which I just tie in the back). This jacket gets lots of compliments.
This jacket kills me, I can’t believe you guys knew it’s Oliver Spencer (who I had never heard of before, and now love), well, yeah, of course you guys would know, and I had to go look on their web site because Mr. V would look stunning in this jacket. (Ward’s photo made me go buy a Pendelton off eBay; I’m easy like that). Anyway, yes, it’s from 2005, and apparently unavailable now, dammit.
Pos/Neg “I screamed when I saw his pic on here.” This just made me laugh, I can totally imagine people doing that all the time when they see their friends on The Sartorialist.
