Morgan, don't act like you live at 29 Acacia Road. He didn't buy it from Saville Row, it's meant to be like that. Best thing to do is for him to reinvent himself as the new Gawk or back it.

Well if I like something that's just a little off I get it altered or do it myself.
I'm a dab hand with the sewing machine.

I've taken inches off Vis jackets and hem all my own jeans. I move pockets and do all sorts of shit.
I find it really difficult to find gear I love these days so I will do my own bits and pieces to make it just how I like it.

Not really.
I can't make clothes but hemming is a piece of piss.
You wanna pay some guy/girl loads of money that's up to you but you get a certain satisfaction doing it yourself.
This is a fashion forum. I would've thought quite a few would be having a go.

What do you plan wearing the suede with?
The suede soloist jacket I bought was the same, just didn't fit with rest of wardrobe. Kidded myself for a while, flogged last week.

Surprised it's hot as much hate as it's got. Not that different from Soloist roughout that people jizz over. I would just wear it over my white nonnative waffle thermal. Appreciate will need a lower hemline to get the best of it and think it will then look sweet. If you look at others the hem is not uniform but I definitely am not going to start tailoring fucking expensive jackets.

Thanks for comments anyway bar troll cunt

jackets fine,just don't wear white under it,if you wore blacks/greys darker tones (I'm assuming its black not navy) it will look great,and the hem will blend in and feel more natural, it only looks odd here as you are drawing attention to it with the white top.

if you like it keep

i don't think the leather jacket suits you essex, the difference in height is just too much. But in the end u have to justify if u can get enough wear out of it?

talking of hems: anyone ever raw hemmed some denim or shirts?
i guess it's better to get it done by a tailor?

The NONNATIVE suede is a winner - although not sure as a warm winter jacket.
