Thanks. It is from Suitsupply.

From a week or so ago, getting a custom bag made by an artist friend. The front plate is made of titanium.

I think a clean line looks better on most people. I don't advocate heavy/linebacker padding, but I do think there's a middle ground to be had which cleans up the shoulder line while not overbulking the look. In the end, personal preference on padding will outweigh this consideration, but in absence of a strong lean that way, it's something to think about when choosing items. ymmv, naturally.

thanks for the feedback HF. there is some padding in the shoulders, not a lot, but more than most of my others i think. i have pretty decent sized shoulders, so i dont need a lot of padding generally, but the jacket is a touch big. he only took it in at the waist all the way up to the armholes. did a fantastic job of making it look like a well fitted SC not a burlap potato sack, imo. but he did not do any work on the shoulders. i didnt ask him too.

its not the best fitting SC i have, and ideally id like to get that shoulder line cleaner, but for now i think its good. it might invest more into it later.

thanks again. your insight is always well thought out and appreciated. smile.gif

AE Cliftons in walnut. I have three Cliftons and those are my favorite. They go so well with light gray slacks.

Gracias. Probably a combination of a couple of things. Basically I stopped trying to go casual so quickly. I've always been comfortable with suits (hence a large collection of Hugo Boss and Thomas Pink silk ties that are now all but unused), so I think conservative blazers are an excellent stepping stone to slightly more unusual sports coats (those with patterns). I'd like eventually to be able to wear those well, but lately I've been staying deeper in my comfort zone.

 

And then of course there are the SF influenced purchases (though actually, with the exception of the ties, all the recent posts were things I've already owned pre SF membership).

 

Having gotten a tripod I think helps.

 

I've recently gotten a few jackets back from the tailors and still have another 6 I think there...just getting the sleeves shortened as I had already been tailoring for fit. I have no idea why I didn't like cuffs before...group think has got me and I'm raising my sleeves more than previously. But the tailor is so damnably slow.

 

Finally, of course, SF has improved my taste. I've been disappointed with the amount of critical feedback I've been getting the last couple of weeks...I have to do something really wrong for someone to give me advice...but learning through osmosis is definitely happening.  I think that's the thing I miss the most about thumbs....lots of quick advice in those that really helped me. 

 

I suspect tomorrows fit will be less successful. Trying to figure out what to do with a green wool Rooster knit. The three jackets that it would go with are all at the tailors.

I think what you're seeing is some shoulder twisting, rather than his actual physique. Happens when a rather structured coat doesn't follow your shoulder line perfectly; in fact I think less, or softer padding, might help.

Thanks, Ian and HF.

Stitchy, I presume you had the waist taken in a bit on the SC? Looks good. An observation about your socks: I think you may be getting the wrong size. The contrasting heel portion shouldn't be so visible from that angle, suggesting that the foot portion is a bit too long.
