Indeed. He suggests padding on the shoulders, but only horizontally. He also suggests that the shoulders be sloped (for, unsaid, illusion of width). In the section, Flusser hardly discusses other details such as neck length. (Built-up shoulders might be helpful for someone with a long neck and not just the very sloped shoulders that he mentions.)

Also, regardless of the jacket construction, colors and patterns of the tie (or, without a tie, shirt) worn can affect perceived head-shoulder proportions. Essentially, slightly distracting from a large head will shrink it.

I don't Chan really have a "house style"; if you don't give them any direction, you're liable to get a style-free suit.

Cary Grant famously had a big head, so you might study how his suits were cut.

Before.

Canali suit has more paddings and its shoulder line is more straight than Brioni suit. Although Brioni suit has rather "heavier" shoulder padding (varies depending on the models) than most other hand made suits but it shows no stiffness when Brioni suit is worn.
