dkny and donna karan menswear is designed and cut with the american male in mind...who is decidedly stockier than his euro and asian counterparts...the fuller cut accomodates the beer gut nicely...and the relaxed fit is tolerable to the north american male...

Thank you theory, softgrey and faust.

Theory I work in Oxfam's local charity store stockroom! (rich district though so we get lots of expensive stuff donated - Jaeger, Country Casuals, Armani and all that conservative crap).

Okay I wanted to see what ya'll thought of this blazer? It's Marc Jacobs and I could buy it at a VERY good price.. But I don't know if I should get it and if it looks too old for me (16) to wear? It kind of reminds me of a jacket Ashley Olson would wear...

I don't know your personal style but you wouldn't catch me within a million miles of MJ and especially not that jacket...However, if you like the style of people like the Olsen's then maybe it's for you. I'm the same age as you and personally I would find that jacket a bit too young for me but it all comes down to what you like really...

my style is chic, simple but striking, I love the Olson's style preferably Ashley's. Why don't you like Marc Jacobs?

Because, IMO he's never designed anything - he just rips off other people. I've heard tales of MJ employees actually going through vintage stores to find designs to rip-off...

i like it! i say get it.. you could wear it with a skirt or pants or dress; it's not too old for 16, and it's definitley a modern take on the jean jacket.

go for it!!

I don't really care for it, but if it looks good on you and you like it, definitely go for it.

By the way, Prince started a wonderful thread for questions just like yours: Yay or Nay?

The style is simple and functional, so you could wear it for a long time. If the price is also agreeable, I think you should get it.
