post #3571 of 3961

Is there a prescribed solution that laymen can submit to them for improvement?

post #3572 of 3961
There is nothing inherently wrong with what they are doing. It improves the fit of the shoulder but it will render different results on different clients due to how the shoulder line is cut and where/how it sits on your shoulder. It is somewhat a signature look in the silhouette of their clothes but the results of the execution will vary. Any qualitative answer or change should come from them. I'm just trying to explain/clarify what it is.

I apprecaite the quick responses by all and although it may appear so in the photos it is definitely NOT a stain on the vent areas but a stitching/bulkier fabric issue specific to my NSM jacket or perhaps more generally to half lined jackets, not sure.

Despos analysis of the vent situation seems more to the point as the bulkiness is definitely due to the folded fabric although  I am not sure Mina and Dino are aware/want to use tape for the seams from their initial reaction.

As far as the shoulder line goes Despos analysis seems plausible again as the shoulder seam feels too far back. My shoulders are pushing through the front and there is excess gapping on the back side of the shoulder area.

I am a big fan of the NSM house style, however I do like some more rounded quarters a la Liverano or B&Tailor as in the following pic:


Has someone tried this with Mina before or is it something she could easily accomodate?

They will do it. I'll try to post pics later

I really appreciate Despos' (or is it Despos's?) comments on this thread. It's great when someone who knows what they are talking about posts in this thread. None of my NSM items have the "swoosh" profile, now I know why.

indeed the boat is scarely similar. Butler you should really have worn white shoes and spectators to complete the look.

I guess, but I have yet to find a white shoe/design that I like, and I don't think I'm man enough to wear Co-respondents bigstar[1].gif

IIRC, the boat was a special order from a small company called Riva-something?

Have all of you been asked for full address, place and date of birth for NSM's accountant? How do you respond?

Apparently some new requirements by Italian law. Just seems a bit excessive.
