Captain Wasteman, The fact that they´re from Malmö may to some extent matter, since taste in clothes/ popularculture tend to differ from town to town/ north to south here in Sweden aswell as for other nations I suppose. But of course this is just me estimating from a personal point of view, but I do visit ( and have lived in both cities) Malmö and Stockholm periodically and find it that there are different climates. I may have enlarged it a bit when saying Swedes/Scandinavians, it´s a big spectra, but if we were to narrow it down to people who normally find themselves buying OL pieces here in Sweden I do think that the majority would feel a bit awkward about wearing many of these pieces.
It´s quite a big and abrupt shift from what previously have characterized the brand and also, what you have come to liked about it. Then of course, the question whether it´s a good or a bad thing is a highly personal one. And mine for the time being is that it´s a pretty bad one since I have come to like their delicate and simple yet suggestive aesthetics since the dawn of the brand. I just can't imagine how people normally into the brand suddenly would approve of this/ like it on such short notice, even if the Splash collection maybe gave us a proper premonition!
I knew someone had both the blazer and trousers on here, should have known it'd be you I know I'll need to get the trews tailored, but if they're going to be like a potato sack on me then due to the construction I'm not sure the job will be that achievable...
Also have the constellation blazer, went TTS (m/48) and it fits great.
The up sizing is very personal I think, don't like this piece if it fits slightly wide.
I am normally a S/46 (not tight, not too relaxed, great fit) in OL and tried on the constellation blazer in a M/48. If I wanted to wear it in the allday life and with a shirt underneath the M/48 was necessary (otherwise it would not feel comfortable I think). Is it close body fitting when you were it?
Just wondering how much difference there is between a S/46 and M/48 in shirts if you are M/48 and wear the blazer in the same size.
Edit: Anyone here owning the Zip lined Bomber in Grey Melange? I think it is a great basic peace and am split if I should buy it or not :/
