Thread: Devoa

    Deova is a very underrated label. I personally love it - the cut, the fabrics, the finish, the general concept. I think people should pay more attention to it, it's definitely worth it.

    imo, none of the pieces look good on the layers model not because they're too big but because he already has very broad shoulders.

    Those jackets definitely are not meant for people who already have shoulders I'd say.

    The sizing has varied from season to season previously but maybe has settled down now, the last couple seasons.

    the fit on Devoa tailoredware is superb in my experience. there's a lot of nice detailing and thought behind the cuts that go a long way when it comes to fit. the button-up shirts and twist pants are great too - just slim enough without being too tight. if anything to nitpick though, the sleeves are a little long sometimes but maybe that's just because i'm not very tall. designs aren't always groundbreaking but the fit and fabric are always spot on, and it's a very easy label to wear. in my opinion, ss10 is when Devoa really started to click, and each successive collection has had a lot of great pieces. note that sizing ranges a little bit on some tailoredware with different seasons, so it's best to try it on.

    I agree about the sleeves, I always need to have the sleeves shortened for his tailored pieces. The shoulders seem to be cut a bit slimmer for this season's blazer.

    What I do like especially is the tailored stuff - cut very sharp with the signature pagoda shoulders and anatomic cut arms. However, as I haven't tried anything on yet, I wondered that the way Devoa cuts may not fit one's body type?
    For example, there is this wool jacket from current FW11.
    It fits awkward on:
    Hlorenzo model and on the guy at Layers London. Not only that the shoulders look awkward (especially at the last-mentioned guy), there are also these creases on the back of the shoulder/arm. And I could also imagine that the anatomic (j-shaped?) arms don't look good if your arms are longer / shorter / of different proportions than what the designer expects them to be?
    On the other side, the blazer looks awesome on the lookbook model (goes without saying though) and on the guy at Zekka.

    Would appreciate thoughts on this 'issue'. Also, does the fit vary much from season to season? I have the impression, that the mentioned blazer has more of a bell shape on the back than other blazers.
    Mofiya, these fitpics are a total clusterfuck except for the lookbook, but even on that photo, it would look better if the sleeves were longer, hitting the thumb joint for instance.

    I have this blazer. One thing to point out is that they're all buttoning it incorrectly, leading to an odd pulling at the waist. There is a double faced button on it... Hard to explain. Suffice to say that they are doing it wrong. Next, the layers model is six and a half feet tall, so he should not be wearing devoa. There is some intersting anatomic cutting under at the airpit to allow ease of movement. From afar it can look a bit like baggy or creased fabric.

    I hard the arms shortened on mine to achieve the perfect length. You would have to be quite lucky indeed to have the sleeves meet at precisely the right place. No shame in getting them altered. Only trouble is the the j shaped sleeves means that it is a job for a talented tailor, not just the guy at the dry cleaners.

    Thanks, all. I really appreciate your experience with the label and this makes a purchase in the future even more probable :)

    But one thing:

    Is this true? I am 6'2 tall. Is this stuff cut for shorter people?

    what size are you? because I'm at least 6 inches shorter and the 46 fits me spot on, even the sleeves are pretty close to perfect though I do wish the jackets were longer in general, this may be a problem if you are used to Rick blazers which are very long. I would say these are just a hair longer than a normal blazer.

    P, the model for Zekka is wearing a size 2 in the blazer and I think he's around 6'2.

    Not really for shorter people. But not 6'6" people. That guy is huge. 6'2" is probably not ideal tbh, but you'll be fine.

    I love Devoa's cut, I think it's not the most forgiving one, but it's one of the very few comfortable slim cut jackets.

    ^^^ It looks really good on you. I have always hesitated because the pagoda shoulders look a bit wrong on me, but you carry it off well. Nice trainers too!

    thanks . There are a few variations of the jacket, some have a more pronounced shoulder, this one's shoulder is a regular non-pagoda version.

    The Archive usually buys big sizes - check with them.

    And, in the future, use the "sizing help" or "help finding" thread. This thread is to discuss the designer's work, not shopping.
