Saw new stuff in Oi Polloi. Shirt fit has seems to have changed. I have a few smalls and the shirt I tried, the one I posted earlier was awful. Fine across the shoulders and arms but HUGE in the body.

That jacket is really nice.

As a general question, is there a general trend for wearing suit jackets. I seem to see them more and more, eg APC did a couple and were shown with shirts on mywardrobe, but I do not see many people wearing them on here?

I am also liking the "Round Neck Marine Knit" on Coggles.

Judging by their recent e-mail Kiosk has got their first delivery too. Probably in store now judging by previous years. Not that impressed with what Coggles has, or Oi Polloi, really, though I wouldn't mind checking the fit on this:

Structured clothes suit my frame so I wear a blazer most of the time, from casual like the OL above (just ordered) through to tax jacket if need to be smart.

Perhaps an age thing?

Pilot jacket looks nice.

Grabbed one of the sweaters in navy from coggles. Fit looks better than the slightly boxy ones from last season. Was gonna pick up a grey one too but coggles seems to have sold out of size small already.

Robii = I think regarding the age thing that you are probably right. Not sure how old Stanleyboy is, but the other sunday he posted a waywt in a OL blue blazer which imo was the best waywt picture for ages.

Strummer = When you get it do a waywt picture. I would be interested in seeing your style (judging from your comment above and the pictures that you post in 'pics other fashion forums').

nice of you to say that.


It probably is an age thing/lifestyle thing, although I wore suits for work I've only started wearing tailored jackets recently. Picked up 3 from OL last season, sent 1 back and waiting for another in return. Quality on their tailored items is superb and very good value. Favourite label out there at the moment.

Love the 3 button jacket ^

Theres loads of early mid 20's on here though, which is definitely blazer age so to speak, just doesn't seem very popular on here…

I've got a double breasted blazer from our legacy from last winter, its really good quality, got nice white lining too, the fit is "relaxed/generous" which is a nice change. I find their stuff really needs to be tried on because as individual things they don't often do that much for me but look a lot better on…

Tresbien have got their first delivery, but could take 3 weeks for them to get it up on the site. Bit of a bitch as they usually get the most in, and need a better look at the whole collection.

combining 2 discussions, I'm a big fan of blazers etc, but never got hugely excited by OL

Stanleyboy = No problems regarding the compliment. I have to admit though that the picture really pissed me off. I was wearing a William Hunt blazer, OL denim shirt, Dior Jeans and a pair of Sperry boat shoes that day, and in comparison you looked so much better.


In reference to a blazer the following is currently available in a S for £84 :
