I guess it's all in how you wear it. Tie, trouser and shoe choice will determine how RBesque it looks. Also dependent on how luxuriant your moustache is and whether or not your apartment smells like rich Mahogany.

Re: Ivy Illustration

What make is yours L, seems to have a bit of roping, nice button positioning on it.

Re: Ivy Illustration

English Sports Shop of Bermuda. It's a 36 so I think the Mannequin is a bit big for the shoulder. In actuality the shoulder sits very nicely and doesn't have that roped look so much. Obviously there is some roping there but it's probably more a case of the lack of anything else in the shoulder to give the impression of it being heavily roped.

Button positioning is perfect. It sits very nicely as a 3/2 or a 3. It's really the perfect jacket for me. It'd make for a great template really but the idea of a tailor picking and pulling it apart is too much to give serious thought to at the moment.

Re: Ivy Illustration

Zach reckoned Tropical weight wool with some man made thrown in to make it Wash and Wear. It's as light as my madras jacket. It's pretty remarkable that it's wool at all. Never seen wool so light.

Re: Ivy Illustration

Lovin' it. All I meant by the Ron Burgundy comment is that here in Oz, a red blazer is so rare that to wear one here would be to wear a costume. In the US I think it would be identified with the proverbial used car salesman, but then only the 1970s or '80s variety. For that reason, I gave mine to my son a few years ago when he was about 16. He was a huge Ron Burgundy fan, and was instantly recognisable at parties--even with dark hair and no moustache.

Maybe the UK connotations are entirely different: I can wear madras trousers, white bucks, seersucker, etc. but a red blazer is beyond me. Didn't mean to imply that I don't like it.

Re: Ivy Illustration

No problem P. I know where you were coming from really. I just don't see the RB connection unless the cut is obviously 70's. I guess you were talking in far more general terms than I was. Cross communication I suppose.

So you take a snap then select a setting and wiggle your finger around the outlines? Easy or not?

Re: Ivy Illustration

It might solve an illustrating problem for me. How does it compare to Photoshop, illustrator etc, gimp

I'm a bit out of touch

Re: Ivy Illustration

I just drew these freehand from looking at the book..but i think you can import stuff like photos. The app works like photoshop no vectors or anything. Id recommend it but obviousl smaller the phone more difficult it is

That's quite a coiffure.  I'm jealous.  ... of an illustration.
