Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

I wear my Keydge for work and play with tapered dress pants, an ocdb and a knit tie. I find it really softens the "look". Similar to the Pendleton "Topster", the Keydge is light and easy. Never have tried it with jeans, as I prefer to wear a G4 or a G9 with denim.

Bien que j'aime et possède un keydge, votre comportement poncey putain est épouvantable.
J'espère que vous aussi bâillon sur vos cuisses de grenouilles.

Mais jamais changer courageux capitaine, vous êtes un "unique en son genre" et on vous aime!

The   -sometimes - funny and unpredictable ways of life time unexpectedlly had me left in possession of two of these string wife beaters a few years ago. I could not resist to try one out in secret. Much to my surprise, it was quite warm. Although I can see the advantage of these vests when worn without a shirt (Unbeatable sexiness, easy way to attach and carry things like lighters etc.); I turned them into a weasel trap and a shopping net after this initial wear.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

And on topic - I think if it should be a Keydge and you are on a budget, it's always worth to look for the odd bargain on ebay or elsewhere, like this Dick in Edinburgh. wink K also have a sale on their website, and JS also has a Summer sale , if I'm not wrong. If you have the chance to try them before buying, do it. Like it was elaborated before, the J*Keydge ones are more true to their size, the newer ones are smaller.

Besides that, RL also are nice and not necessarily completely lined.

These jackets are great, the proportions are perfect and because of the construction they can be altered.

If someone knocked these out without a dart youd have a winner. Also the dart doesnt make it waisted it sits better than the keydge.

If you really wanted no dart though...either go keydge or scour the vintage on ebay and etsy for a linen, seer sucker or madras sack.

TKMaxx are selling RL undated jackets in tan with all the correct details (except for 4 buttons on the sleeve) for 99 quid. Made in China and a RRP of nearly 300quid. I tried one on and if I hadn't just bought a Keydge I would have bought it. Instead I got a Made in USA BB BD for £25 and a RL made in India popover bleeding Madras for £40 (no logo)

I'll have a look in my local one today, they usually get a lot of RL in- where'd you find them?

I was at the Lakeside Thurrock shop. I'm going back tomorrow to check if they still have them. They didn't have a lining and were undarted.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

I've found a fair few slack/slack-ish jackets with Ivy relevance to varying degrees that would be broadly acceptable here.   I do find the RL jackets with very subtle darts and buggy/shoulder only lining. (apart from very slight darts from RL (they appear on ebay constantly, there's one there now in beige I have on watch).   I have also picked up some over recent years from Jaeger, Lands End and a couple of years ago I picked up a load of Aquascutum ones in various colours from their Outlet that I've never seen elsewhere and the shop has now closed.     Lots of brandsrs now sell a 'jersey' material slack jacket that is not relevant here but as a style it is fairly widely adopted.

There is a looking nice 3/2 slack J.Crew jacket relisted on ebay right now I'm tempted by but having won two jackets off ebay this month it may be pushing my wife a bit far.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

went with Keydge in the end. I've got a wedding, a 30th anniversary party of a company both me and the missus worked for (at the century club in London so gotta make an effort) coming up and a family do . Plus I've been lucky lately on other purchases. I agree that with a bit of patience I could have picked up something else and I'm keeping an eye out with the Ralph but I needed/ wanted to get something soon. I'm happy, but if I was to get another I'd probably wait for the sales. Also went into John Lewis and they had some interesting donegal tweed, 3 buttons which were unstructured and didn't appear darted etc. But they were 200 quid and it's summer...

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

I saw that uniqlo one in a chazza I go with Tom's review of it. It was decent properly constructed with allowance. Not bad at all. Apart from the darted front.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

I went back to TKMaxx and the RL jackets are still on sale. Oddly, the 42 which I tried on has no darts but a 36 and 38 on closer inspection was almost identical but with darts. As well as the tan they now have a 42 in a navy chino style cotton material. (with darts) So it is only the one jacket without darts, so maybe a sample? The 4 cuff buttons all 'work'. They had a few iffy stripped BB BD shirts (made in Malaysia) for £25.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

Maybe the omission of darts on that one suit was just a manufacturing oversight.  I know a lot of the clothes that end up in stores like that over here are there because they have slight defects or manufacturing errors.

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

I wonder how many prospective members we alienate with out interaction alone?

Re: Keydge vs Alternatives

Damn, there's innuendo in there too.  Perhaps I should have said "back and forth" instead of "interaction alone".  Wait... no.  That's not any better.
