Was your level of hostility not disproportionately high and rude?

No, you should shut up after making your point the first time. Not repeat it over and over again and piss all over what was one of the better threads on this forum.

Nope. Too many pests crawling out of the woodwork to carefully pare down each one.

It's not a good thread if 80% of the jackets have fucked up shoulders and nobody knows it.

Styleforum is its best as an advocacy network for people who use bespoke services. Not a cheerleading service for tailors. I wish tailors could be trusted 100% to handle all issues without client feedback. However, the business model of running a bespoke shop creates natural incentives against this ideal. No matter what any tailor says. That includes my own.

So, the real problem is actually not the shoulders on these jackets. Or even NSM. To be brutally honest: the problem is their clients not knowing how to be clients.

What a nonsense justification.

Says who? That may be what you want it to be, but it is clearly much broader in scope than that. This is plainly obvious.

The problem in this case is your incessant drive to demonstrate your superiority, time and time again.

Anyone with a grain of sense will know that this thread will be replete with users of this clothier. Anyone with some humility will know that they may like their clothes, and prefer not to have their good shit on.

You are a rare bully that can't contain himself but to shit on everything that is not what you like.

And you are a rarity of a different sort.

What makes you think you are the authority on men's styling and have the right to critique other people's choices and tell tailors that have forgotten more about making garments then you will ever know that what they are doing is wrong?

Shut up already. Everyone is tired of reading your tirades. If there was ever a perfect example of Napoleon complex, you are it.

I remember the time this was one of the more enjoyable threads on the forum. *Sigh*

They told me the next visit will be either in July or September.

Perhaps there is a third way. Foo can start a Pa-Fucked thread which can be the home for this debate, and this thread can revert to its previous nature.

Whaddaya say, fellas?
post #3282 of 3928
no swearing in thread titles
post #3283 of 3928
I'm sure Foo can come up with a suitably clever title which does not contravene the rules.

Was I the only one who saw "Frank" and thought "Shattuck", only to be thoroughly confused, because those were clearly not Shattuck specimens?

As for Mariano, his shoulders are such that the LH shoulder expression is not ideal for him, to my eye. While it is a recognized/accepted shoulder expression, and Mariano may feel obligated to serve as a billboard for it, he might be better served by the shoulder on Luca's coats, which is quite different:
