Laughed out loud. You are a rogue.
Ya sorry brother. I know the clothes arent ironed. I didn't think of ironing before posting here because basically I just wanted to know of the color matches or not. Sorry for spamming. Just wanted to show. Ok I'll ask in other threads or different sites. :) Thank you. :)
Just a suggestion, you might want to check out the 'Street wear and Denim' section on this website. It might be more in line with you casual, youthful, look.
You sound nice.. :)
Thank you, Ed. Somehow I was thinking that raising the gorge would put it on top of my shoulders, too high, but couldn't figure out why it still looked "low" - the size of the notch seems to be the cause indeed. I believe they offer different, more closed notches, that I could try.
Would you still make the lapels narrower if shoulders were to be extended on a new jacket? This pose doesn't show it, but IRL I believe the jacket doesn't fully disguise my pear shape, so I was thinking of adding half an inch to the collar felt to sleeve cap measurement.
I actually did ask for 10 cm lapels with this jacket, but the factory made them 11 cm (I'm still wondering why), which is almost that half inch difference.
can I chime in with a question? Is there a general proportion that has been classically followed on the gorge? That is, the point of the gorge is at the collar bone or some such?
Good guessing - my chest is 104 cm, and point-to-point (my tailor measures both that and the distance between collar felt and sleeve cap) is roughly 45 cm, though sometimes I ask for some extra back ease. Problem is that my hips are 109 cm, and I think some extension (there's almost none right now) would help proportions.
In next commissions with this tailor (if they happen) I might skip the roped sleeve caps, so if there are no options besides rounded lapels it could be less of an issue.
Here's a robopose (I'm thinking a bit less waist shape + shoulder extension would help with the "pearness"), plus a crappy self-foof of what I think it would look like with extended shoulders, front balance fixed, looser waist and less rounded, slightly more closed quarters:

I like the top half of the jacket, but I feel something's very wrong with the bottom - could be just the long front balance issue.
