Many thanks to Antonio L. for the style tip
If the Macy’s house line Bar III took any kind of inspiration from another brand, it might be Reiss. Not to the extreme of Topman, but still modern and slim with a British feel. Which makes sense, being that they’re based in Britain. Button stances look a little high and jackets also look a little chopped, so be aware. It’s also a bit of a clearance, so sizes will be all over the place. Also know that you’re on the hook for returns.
Another odd one. Modern double breasted blazer that was being sold as part of a pair of suit separates, but the pants no longer seem to be available. Ultra cheap for a wool double breasted blazer though. Not a look everyone can or would even want to try to pull off.
80% wool, 10% nylon, 10% poly. Web pics make it look like it has some shine, but if you zoom in you can see the grey is a worsted wool. So, the ol’ “Sharkskin” look might be in effect here.
Bronze? Rust? Bronze that’s… rusted? Destined to be worn with jeans. Pick stitching on the lapels. Could have potential as a sportcoat in an unusual color that’s not neon at the same time.
If you’re considering taking a double breasted suit jacket for a spin, this might be a super cheap way to do it. It’s also ultra modern with that two button front. Tempting even for those of us who swear they’d never even try the DB thing. 57% cotton, 40% wool, 3% poly should make for an interesting fabric. Blue, but far from a deep navy blue.
What? Too early to talk outerwear?
Okay guys… anyone got direct experience with Reiss? Thoughts on the fits if you do? Leave it below…
