I recall G&G saying that they were reserving boot trees for bespoke only.
Your experience is different from mine. I find no difference in the size of the sleeve head between a regular shoulder and shirred shoulder when controlled for the same maker. I find the amount of drape has greater effect on comfort during movement than the size of the sleeve head.
I had an alignment done at the same time so I don't know which was the culprit, maybe both.
The 2 coats with spalla camica are both summer weight. One is a Gunclub check and the other is a blue mohair BlazerSuit. If I made them again, I would probably do regular shoulders for the following reasons.1) At least with NSM, the spalla camica can be a bit puffy with certain fabrics- I suspect greatest with the stiff fabrics.
