i'm smaller in stature but have broad shoulders, as 5'7 150 this blazer (36) offers a fit a bespoke tailor would smile at. as one of my first 'major' purchases i was a little weary of its cut as i tend to prefer a slightly more modern/trim look - seconds after opening the package i knew my concerns were null. truly the perfect balance of modern twist on classic items. i've had the Alma Mater for just over a year and not a single complaint (very rare for weekly wear). dress it up, dress it down, dancing, highfiveing, (i've even pulled off a late night backflip or two..) whatever it is - you'll look great doing it. even styled it a few times. (www.threadandsalt.com) do it, you wont regret this purchase when that cute chick gives you a second look.
