I don't have any intellectual basis for it other than more formality seems to call for a stiffer, cleaner, more immaculate appearance. Is that just personal preference or not?   The unstructured tuxedo I saw had a very wrinkled shoulder line when the gentleman was sitting down, which irked me. If he was wearing a corduroy jacket with an equally wrinkled shoulder, I would've ignored it, maybe even embraced the wrinkles for that look.

I'm kind of getting hyped up about this dark green linen. I might even get one for myself. I already have 3 linen suits but I can't resist getting another. Merino Bros have Caccioppoli, and we can order through Merino Bros....
Sometimes it can be hard to differentiate the amount of padding from the wearer's build. Nevertheless, the shoulders look too wide to me. I think they have a strong relationship. While I get most of my casual jackets with no padding, I made to sure to get some padding for my stroller and tuxedo. I saw a rather famous menswear guy wear an unpadded (or very lightly) tuxedo, and thought it looked pretty bad. I wear 3" ties and 3.5" lapels. I wouldn't put any hard numbers on...
I saw the check and immediately thought sportcoat. The flap pockets do seem to contradict that. That fabric would be a pretty bold for a suit, not that I'm averse to that myself. There are degrees of casualness with a sportcoat: a navy blazer would be more suited to stronger shoulders than a corduroy like I'm wearing above. Though you're right that the flap pockets make this sportcoat not very casual at all.  You tell me. I have a moderate amount of padding in this...
 The stroller suit is an ideal option for daytime weddings. More formal than a business suit, while still suitable for the day, unlike the tuxedo. The charcoal jacket and mid grey trousers can be worn as part of other outfits, so you’ll get a lot of wear for not a lot of money. Kent Wang charcoal jacket, TRG001 fabric, standard shoulder, standard lapel width Kent Wang double-breasted ivory vest, TR7147 fabricKent Wang mid grey flannel trousers, TRV37 fabricKent Wang white...

Around April 30. Email sales@kentwang.com and we'll let you know when they're in. Around March 19. Email sales@kentwang.com and we'll let you know when they're in. I'm afraid not. Now that I live in London, it's hard to do trunk shows in the US.
Agreed. If it was a black dinner jacket, I'd say onyx, but since it's a white jacket, then white MOP would be better.    Only wear a boutonniere if the jacket has a boutonniere hole. Don't pin on a flower; that's ugly.
