Any thoughts on roped, standard, or soft shoulders for me? This will primarily be used for wedding suits at which I am the guest and other formal/semi formal occasions. I think I want to go roped as KW seems to have a subtle roping, and I visually prefer a clear distinction of the sleeve head over a bald shoulder expression. But perhaps would soft would be better for my size? 

Part of me desperately wants to go with a wider lapel, or peaks (or both), but Aaron advised I keep it basic for the first MTM, which I agree with. I with with the TRG031 fabric to give it a bit of a pop, while still keeping the pattern a bit more conservative. 

Thanks again for your input. 

For your shoulders, I would think standard. As you said it's a more formal garment, which calls for standard.

Check out David's green jacket above for reference on lapels. He's not a big guy (5'9" I believe) and in my opinion the wide lapels look perfectly normal on him, to the point where standard lapels may be a bit slim in appearance

I agree, it does look quite nice. 

 

I wish I had an opportunity to wear suits more frequently as I like how look in them. 

 

I keep thinking that I need to spice this one up in case my rotation stays limited. 

 

Maybe I will go standard shoulder and wide lapel rather than risking the roped (risk just bc I am not sure exactly what it looks like, although seems to be more moderate).

Here's a pic of a roped KW jacket I got about a month or two ago FWIW

Does anyone have a picture of the unpadded spall a shoulder? I'm going to make my first KW suit order soon. Thinking navy, spalla shoulder, 3-roll-2, regular canvas, standard lapel width. Would this be "office" appropriate?

I heard the opposite that they shy away from the spalla camicia
post #5693 of 5900

I would highly recommend the unpadded/unstructured option without camicia.  It's a very clean look, and all of my future KW jackets will have it.

agreed.

 

I'd also add that my understanding is that a camicia shoulder is more common for a SC rather than a suit as it matches the lower level of formality of a SC.  With other makers that I use that do a camicia shoulder, i typically only get it for a SC or a BlazerSuit.

Thanks. I do still favour the spalla camicia as a personal choice (a reference to my heritage really) so if it's not considered garish in the workplace (think finance law consulting) or if nobody would notice I think I will still go for it.

No one will notice.  I think the issue you have heard from a few here is that KW doesn't really feel great about the camicia treatment they do.

Oh well that's a different matter entirely. Guess I will consult with him. If anyone has photos of it on their own suits do please let me know.
post #5698 of 5900

Some will disagree, but I've come across verrryyyyy few people (from creatives to super stodgy wall street execs) who would even think to notice the shoulder expression of a SC/suit.

post #5699 of 5900

If you want spalla, and Kent doesn't really recommend it.. I might just try a different brand that specializes in it.

post #5700 of 5900
Of course. There don't seem to be any brands at KW's price point that offer it though.
