I think the Rack is like most of the other places we bottom feed - 95% junk and 5% gems that the typical shopper doesn't even recognize. That just means that you need to swing through whenever you're in the area and check what's in stock without expectation but ready to drop some coin if opportunity strikes. What I do like about them is that they have a pretty bombproof 30-day return policy, so it's always easy to buy something you might be on the fence about and just...
Sleeve length? Also. How much padding in the shoulders?
Brown suede penny loafers or brown suede chukkas. They both go off/on easy for security, can handle a fair amount of walking, don't require polishing, and are very versatile in terms of matching with everything from dark jeans to slacks.
The Scott was the best cut Isaia made -- a truly subtle knockout. Pity it's not my size!
Not sure if it's a joke, but it is aptly named...
Gianluca Napoli is a blue label - black label stuff is about 3 years+ old, but is the mainline product with all the details but available in multiple body/shoulder models such as Stuart, Cary, Sirio, Gregory, etc.
Orlando Knit sports coat in heavyweight jersey material EU/52 - fits a slim 42R, please see measurements below. Has more structure than a sweater, but still has a bit of stretch to it. This is a cool piece that I picked up from another member and it is just a fraction too small for me. Great neutral color for versatility, wonderful casual piece. Soft shoulders, peak lapels, double vents, working buttonholes. Selling for what I paid - $50. Measurements: Shoulder\t...

JACKETS NWT Canali Sports Coat - EU 54L which measures to a US 42L. Perfect for Spring /Summer! Canali mainline jacket, wheat color with faint blue overplaid - very subtle appears almost solid from a distance- sleeves still basted, double vents, fully canvassed, all tags still attached, all...
Hey Ben - I stand corrected as I have a cary model and it does have slightly stronger, or perhaps more accurately "extended" shoulders, than the Scotts, Stewarts, Base S or V I have. Funny, but it is not exactly more padded than my other Isaias, but it is definitely more "shaped" - is this how you would describe the shoulder in your suits? And not to derail the tread, but I just came across a Carlyle model from the now defunct Enrico Isaia handmade line. Assuming...
Not to diss Ben - I've bought from him and would only sing praises and admire this effort - but I find the claim of this being a derivative of Isaia's Scott model a bit baffling. The shoulders alone in the pics shown are more Canali/Zegna than almost anything Isaia has out there.
