Bought the blazer at a thrift store across the street from my hotel in Mountain View, CA back in September. It’s vintage Brooks Brothers – good find. I believe I paid $5 for it.
I ordered up the usual – sleeves narrowed, and tapered to my torso. If you look on the second image, you can see where the pins were placed on the back and the sleeve. When I went to go pick it up, I noticed that the sleeves were only narrow on my forearm, and so he took it in more all the way up to my bicep. I didn’t get the sleeves as narrow as normal because I want to be able to wear sweater underneath for layering in the winter time. One thing I did notice is that I’m showing a little too much cuff, that’s an easy fix on my next trip.
Admittedly, my photography skills aren’t great, especially when trying to take pics of myself using the timer. I’ll do better next time to duplicate the poses and make sure they aren’t blurry. (I need a new camera, saving up for a DSLR)
Blazer – Brooks Brothers, Button down-collar Oxford – J.Crew, Tie – Ralph Lauren Rugby, Raw Denim – Levi’s 501′s (purchased and tapered at Sid Mashburn;I wish I had those before and after shots)
