All this would give a more robust look to the jacket without being over fitted. Shaping is different from suppressing and more an attribute of custom/bench work. Not so easy to do in RTW where everything has to be standardized.

Could this be correctly translated as one thumbs up and one down?

Dear God man... I don't even know what to say to that. Thank you! I understand everything you suggested, and there are certainly more than a few things I didn't know to pay attention to that I just learned... although sadly, I don't think there is anyone proficient enough accessible to me to make all that happen. Looks like I am going to have to go to Chicago and buy you a drink.

styleforum is a curse

before SF, i would have NEVER even considered a $1400 suit
after SF, i don't think a winter weight RLPL suit is a good deal at $1400, especially since i am in LA

3 season weight, i could have gone for it
or drop the price under $1000

so the hunt must continue

can i has purple label?
man... it was marked down twice + extra 30% off because it's a winter clearance item
subtle pinstripe
did not know there were RLPL's with flat front pants and slimmer cuts
also tried on some attolini and borreli suits at the shopthefinest warehouse
i did put the BB milano on hold but... now it doesn't excite me anymore
boo

I think you are calculating too hard, that's where the fun dies

Since you have a great job and money, why not buy something you like?

that RLPL is really in a good deal.

i was so tempted to buy it... but i started getting hot standing around in the suit after a few minutes... in an air conditioned retail store
definitely not appropriate for LA weather

To me, this is the biggest draw to Mina's jackets. This is the hardest shoulder to make and very few tailors are able to execute this very well. Most don't want to try. I've spent years seeking tailors who make this to learn from. IMO this shoulder gives the most freedom and movement to a jacket and sits/stays on the shoulder the best. This is a thing of beauty! If you don't care for the aesthetic, I'm sure she will accommodate with a different profile of shoulder but asking to flatten and press it down is like being at the best steak house in town and putting ketchup on your steak. As this shoulder isn't seen much I can see how it would look unnaturally different to what is the more common ways of shoulder construction.



I didn't say it was objectively bad--I just noticed it was there. But no, personally, I don't like it.
