Page 2 in the conversation "Plaid blazer redux (updated)" by Greyscale
I prefer the size 0, which is odd for me since I tend to prefer everything oversized! But it's likely I'm being influenced by the styling in the first set of pics with the size 0 (with the boots, which I prefer to the flats in the second set with the size 2) and my poison eye for rolled sleeves on blazers.
Here’s the 0 with sleeves cuffed. Late afternoon light made it hard to take photos in my usual spots so here I am in the kitchen.

Greyscale - I ordered this too. There is a little defect in the plaid by the shoulder seam. I took my usual size 4 and it fits like the 2 fits you. I really like it but I’m waiting on restock. I think Nov 9 is estimated. So I can try a size 2 against a hopefully perfect 4. I love it on you. It’s very roomy. As much as I love oversized I like the 0 on you. But you know I love both.
And here are the two side by side, for direct comparison.

The 2. I’m so glad you put them side by side because the differences are subtle. You can probably see and feel the difference better in person.
I think there is a little extra length on the 2, right? I think the shoulders are a little wider and the sleeves seem a little roomier.
So, the 0 looks like it fits better, but the 2 looks slightly more in-style.
I hope that was coherent
Also, regardless, I'm definitely going to wear this with a scoop neck white tee and solid black jeans! The styling in today's photo works so much better.
So which are you keeping?!! Do you ever follow http://www.alterationsneeded.com? She likes a pocket square and scrunching and rolling sleeves. I think you might enjoy her blazer styling ideas.
Agree with Smittie that it's the little bit of extra length that I like best about the size 2. Alterations Needed is a great blog; I always get good inspiration there. Thanks for the reminder, Gryffin!
Welllll, I went back to exchange the 0 for a 2 and they’re sold out and not expecting more until May.
What to do?
I’ll keep the 0 for now and keep the tags on and see if a 2 pops back in stock, I guess. In the end I might settle for the 0.
I vote for the 0 ... It still looks like an oversized cut but fits you well. I love this look!
Don’t have solution because I often waffle sizes in the same top— more fitted for skirts or tucking, more roomy for pants .
The different fits give different vibes. I do like the more conventionally flattering fit of the 0 in the photo. That makes it look somewhat easier to wear and also with lighter T’s. The 2 does look more like outerwear, which you said might be your thing,
With the size 0 in hand, try it buttoned and with different tops & having BF take some video of it in motion, where pulling and such would show up. I know you can’t compare side- by - side now, but see if it looks good to you and feels good or if you will pine for the size 2.
I vote 0. I looked long and hard, and diff are subtle, BUT I see it clearly on the bust. Why "drawning" in so much fabric:-) when size 0 fits like a glove still looking perfect for oversize look! (Nordstrom was great, too- as only 1 button is always looking great on a girl!:-)).
Good Greyscale. I wouldn't fret about getting the 2. The 0 looked great too.
This is not a cop out, but my dear Greyscale, BOTH sizes look KILLER, and you can't go wrong either way.
If the 0 fits better up top but the 2 is a better length, why not check out the seam allowance on the hem of the 0? It might not be a simple alteration, but it could end in a blazer that’s exactly right for you.
Just came across this party version & thought of you. https://www.freepeople.com/sho.....;color=009
Agreeing with unfrumped. If youd wear any heavier layers under especially you should definitely try them with both.
