I went to the Opera to see Aida in Rio. Trust me, I was definitely overdressed. Pay no mind to the weird angle in the first pic, the girlfriend is 5'4" while I am 6'5". The right sleeve (left on the pic) is not short, must be snagging in the jacket.
Trousers have a very small check pattern that I really like (I bought it at Zara in Rome). Shirt is pale green.post #50313 of 787214/27/13 at 12:56am
Thanks for the comments, gents. The finished jacket that came from the factory didn't have concave shoulders, they were straight diagonal lines. Then I asked the tailor to remove as much padding as possible - the effect I really wanted was that of a soft, convex shoulder with roping, like this:
He did, but he also adjusted for forward shoulders and only then the shoulders became concave. We need to work on that, because I believe if the long front balance problem is fixed, I won't need that adjustment. I don't think I can get a drape, or Neapolitan cut jacket from him (and won't try to), but I believe convex, soft shoulders should be achieveable, along with much less open quarters. Will work on that, either with this tailor or with a new onepost #50314 of 787214/27/13 at 2:51ampost #50315 of 787214/27/13 at 2:59am
Jeeze Crat! That is killer right there..what is that flannel.. and the last couple days, I have seen some awesome 3 button looks that it makes me feel good about my decision to work on the 3 button suit that I have..post #50316 of 787214/27/13 at 3:35am
Crat- !!! that rocks.
Diaz- V le V's jacket is Neapolitan bespoke IIRC ... others'll know better than me, but is that look achievable by remedial work on a jacket made with an entirely different object? If I can use a car analogy, putting hardened cams in a stock plant will like as not put the whole thing out of whack rather than provide more grunt- I like Holdfast's gestalt approach.post #50317 of 787214/27/13 at 3:44amQuote:Originally Posted by Brickbone

It's just a picture I used to illustrate soft and roped shoulders, which aren't exclusive to Neapolitan tailoring. And if you remove padding, you need to re-cut the shoulder to a more sloped shape, of course.post #50318 of 787214/27/13 at 10:31ampost #50319 of 787214/27/13 at 12:20pmpost #50320 of 787214/27/13 at 12:55pmpost #50321 of 787214/27/13 at 6:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by Tom Miler
Today's three-piece suit. Pants are a bit uncommon because they almost reach my navel. A lot of people laugh that it is almost Fred Astaire's style but I like it that way because they hide my belly :D I also had the suspender buttons put on the outside. In the back it prevents the buttons being pressed into my flesh when driving.
Since I've been lifting weights for years, my shoulders are quite large and I use pleats on the back of the shirt to be able to extend my arms easily. The lower back of the shirt is also adjusted to my body architecture.
Below a full view with vest and jacket. The jacket has 3 buttons and diagonal pockets. There are no vents in order to make it better fitted around my hips (this is a bit uncomfy though).
Here you see the lapels on the vest and on the jacket. It's all herringbone! :D

This isn't just good, it's truly excellent. I especially like the prewar style braces buttons on the outside of the pants.post #50322 of 787214/28/13 at 4:44ampost #50323 of 787214/28/13 at 4:45ampost #50324 of 787214/28/13 at 5:29am
