what you are reacting to, and everyone else is, is not so much the gorge. I like that gorge and if I were making you a jacket I would keep it like that or maybe do 1/4-1/2 higher at most. What you guys don't like us the size of the notch. If you take those same lapels, same gorge, but close up the notch a bit, you will get a different result. The rounded lapels, I like. It adds a little flair to the jacket. The other thing you need, the lapel width I would cut down by about 1/2 inch. I like big lapels but they need to be in balance to your chest and overall width.

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.

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.

I'd have to see you in person or a picture of how extended the shoulders. I don't know what size you are, looking at the pic I am guessing you have a 100-105 cm chest and 44-47 cm shoulders. I would stick with 9.5-10cm lapels. The other thing though, is that if you are keeping the roped shoulders, I would go with straight lapel points as opposed to the rounded ones, I think that is more coherent with those shoulders. I think your rounded lapels would look good with natural shoulder/unconstructed type jackets.

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?

Thanks! It's a linen coat from Bladen, unstructured and unlined, quite nice.

Is it, by any chance, from Tweed Country Sports? (I saw you were based In Stockholm)?

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.
