I definitely prefer soft jackets. But keep in mind that this is not only related to shoulders but also canvas used in the suit. The Giacca napoletana have a soft canvas in chest. I have jackets from Milano and Sicily, their canvas is different and has more shape. Shoulders are another story. During one of my fittings i tried with and without shoulder paddings and you really feel the difference.
 Frankly, the first suit fits quite badly, and pants are disastrous..Maybe your weight changed between the finish of the suits and the fitting but it's quite bad. The last unfinished jacket seems nice.
shipping from Switzerland. Both all wool
Since i go bespoke i am no more wearing RTW suits so decided two sell these two nice suits. I worn them maybe 2-3 times but no more but they have been tailored for pants hem and sleeves.   Ralph Lauren Purple Label Chocolate Brown Suit Size 40, Price $ 300, incl shipping to US, EU Extremely well made; as you can see handwork on the chest and buttonholes. Color is chocolate brown. Pants, double pleat, without belt loops, with brace buttons Half waist: 17" (room to let...
Not only with Ambrosi but with many local tailors in Naples the rule is simple; just don't focus on exact fitting or delivery times. Let the process go on, it may take 2 months, 3 months etc. The guy may say he will ship your pants/suit in september but don't get pissed off if you don't receive it in September you may receive it in October or November or even maybe December. This is the golden rule. Given the structure of tailoring business it's 100% normal that the guy...
 I think it really depends on fabric & color combination. Recently i saw some kind of purple in W Bill tweed and Schofield & Smith English wool collection, both are very interesting (not very bold, in any case not shiny and remains on traditional side) that i will buy a jacketing of both to keep at home.
There's no such thing as a bespoke suit at a price tag of EUR 700 in Europe, no way.. The cheapest you can find is in south of Italy (Naples, Sicily etc.) but still it's not that cheap.
I have this issue (rolls) with some of my jakets. Recently when i had fitting with my sicilian tailor i had the same issue during the first fitting and i asked him the reason of this and he told me that the jacket is too wide at some point so it makes these rolls. He corrected it for the second fitting. But it's true that on some of my jackets (from some other tailors) it's not corrected... The back of your suit is pretty bad for a bespoke suit and at this point it's not...
Anybody here had experience with Schofield & Smith cloth ? Any opinion on the quality ? Thanks
Yes, the jacket is from Solito as well
