WIWT - This is a vintage Paul Stuart blazer made by Southwick. It is made from some of the most beautiful tweed I have ever seen, an orange/brown and cream herringbone. The blazer features leather buttons (in perfect condition), perfect suede elbow patches, and a nice brown lapel padding. The shoulders fit perfectly, as does the drape on the back (despite what you see being pulled by my bag), and the length is perfect too. The lapels are bit bigger than lapels I normally wear, but they’re perfect for flipping and keeping warm.
Another thing I wanted to touch on is the pocket square. You can’t clearly see it in the pictures, but it’s that unfinished Marinella silk I snagged from eBay. Green and blue flowers, bordered by paisley. This post is really about my blazer. Sure there are other aspects of the kit, but when I say this is one of the most incredible jackets I have ever seen, I am not exaggerating. I had entirely too much fun shooting today with Amy. This was a great time.
