SW- are you serious?? :lol:
You just like him in tight clothes so much, they're starting to look normal to you!

This isn't how a buttoned jacket should look.....don't get me wrong- on Jemaine, I love it! :D But it's gaping at the top and the bottom, and there's a feeling of possible bursting-open between those 2 buttons.
J likes his buttons to scream for mercy, I think.....:lol:

I'm just glad to know they're around and about in the US....they must be busy creating something! :thumb:

IMHO the buttons don't look like they are tugging. I don't know what you mean by gaps. It's meant to be low and open at the top. It looks alright to me. :)

I'm with Laura. That jacket doesn't fit. But I'm okay with that.

Maybe it's just the angle of the camera. It looks fine to me but the buttons do look a bit snug.

Not snug at all by Jemaine standards. :lol: I see maybe what Laura means now, the right side of him? I think it's the way he's standing or the angle the photo was taken at. Only another photo of him in this jacket will put the debate to rest. :nod:

I think that's an 80s jacket ...or a new one looking retro...its got shoulder pads for crying out loud... :lol:

Jemaine, you really dont need help in the shoulder department... :lol:

I think its supposed to fit snug around the waist...it seems a bit tight, but not really by J standards...

Im up in the air about it

:dunno:

Like SW said, clearly we need more pictures before we can judge it fairly. ;)

I didn't even notice that it looked tight in the waist at first. I tend to think it's the pose he's in. I hate blazer type jackets because I find they always attach themselves to the shirt underneath them and pull at weird places. They never hang right on me. Maybe that's what's going on with J.

There are different cuts of jackets. There are boxy cuts & other cuts meant to be more fitted through the body. Of course Jemaine would choose the fitted type. But I do too. Like for instance I hate boxy t shirts, I buy the fitted ones so I don't look like a box. No one wants to look like a box. :wink:

I'm sad that the new glasses don't photogragh very well because in person they look marvelously hot on him. And that jacket fits perfectly in my opinion which for Big J means it's probably a size too small. :D

It helps that he even has the collar flipped up. :purple:

I didn't even notice that it had shoulder pads. I knew something was off there. He can dress in all the overly snug clothes he wants. :D
