    Does this cotton blazer fit?

    Picked up this French Connection cotton jacket today for 85. Thought it was great at the time but I'm very conscious that the material is pulling slightly at the top button. However, I'm not sure that this is just the nature of the material. What do you guys think?

    I'm not so sure. This photo gives a better impression of the sort of pulling I'm talking about. Funny thing is, when I pull the jacket down a bit the pull disapears.

    Although in reality, the fit isn't much different to this:

    Yeah I think a slight pull on the button is a desirable aspect of slim fit tailoring

    I think yours fit better. The fit on the image looks too strained and restricting - like the button's going to give, if he takes a deep breath. Yours on the other hand looks to be on the right side.

    I think its' fine, although I agree with the other posters the fit on the model is way too tight. 0_0 Perhaps such a tight fit is meant to be fashion forward, but to me it just looks like the models trying to squeeze into a junior sized blazer ha ha.
