I tried to give this the thumbs up, but the forum said I had already liked it (I had). So I'm just quoting and saying: fuck man, looking good. (though there appears to be a loose thread on your shoulder)

Whatever, you're doing the look as it should be done.

I found this Corneliani Linea Sartoria for a song. Changed the buttons to brown horn buttons.

Can´t decide whether the shoulders are too pronunced. Can the padding be removed without ruining the jacket?

 

Please advice me.

 

The rest:

 

Shirt from Ashwood & Blake

Tie Drake´s of London

Flannell trousers from Oscar Jacobson.

C&J Hallams

You can remove the padding, there are usually two layers of padding so you can remove one of them. It won't affect the width though.

BTW, I think it looks good, but the balance seem a little off with the quite slim trousers.

A good tailor can do it, but I think it's considered risky by some (I'm waiting for a jacket to be converted from very pronounced shoulders to soft shoulder, so I'll have some personal experience soon enough). Also the fit seems a bit boxy, but I'm pretty terrible at assessing DB jackets. Dark jackets, gray pants, and black shoes also run the risk of making you look like a security guard, though I suppose security guards don't wear DB jackets, so you're probably safe on that count. I think I like the shirt, but it's hard to make out the texture of the fabric.

 

I'd suggest x-posting the picture here:

The shoulder of the jacket looks fine, don't destroy it.

This. I think the jacket looks boxy whereas the pants seem to fit you nicely. I think you should go with a jacket the works with the pants not the other way round. IMO, of course.

I'm with 911 on this one.  No need.

 

There's something not quite right though that's making it look wide and ungainly.  Is it a little big in the front around your chest/belly?  Rather than attacking the shoulders, taking the whole thing in a touch might make it more balanced.  But that's just how it looks to me from the pic - drooping from the chest because it's too big there or across your back.  Some more expert eyes will guide you I'm sure.

I'm out of green thumbs, but that is sensational.  Your jackets always seem to be off the peg, but look tailored for you.  Is that the case, or you just happen to fit a standard size really well?  

 

 

I really envy you guys your heavier fabrics, especially the tweeds and textured stuff.  Just too hot for me mostly.  But inspired by this thread, this evening I'm finally picking up a heavy three piece country tweed to travel with in a couple of days.  Will probably die of heat exhaustion even in a European Autumn, but it will be worth it!

Another day at the office. We again had sub-zero temps today, so I threw on a cardigan under the jacket to keep warm. It turned out to be a wise choice. The PS - not so much...

Mr Pingson, yeah that's what I'm talking about right there.  Love that fishbone.

 

 

Can't live with all you handsome aesthetes and high rollers!  But we work with the tools we're given: here's me, still summery as it's about 33C today - one of the coolest days so far.  Thanks for the love on yesterday's grey linen; tried to get a better pic of its beige twin with a mirror shot in my daughter's room.  Makes me look about 4ft tall but at least it's a touch clearer.

mimo, the PS is out of control. You've managed to fold it awkwardly in the first picture and puff it poorly in the second. That silk calls for a puff, but look at Spoo's last post for a better example of the breed.
