I too have been given an iPhone from work but I use it to open beer bottles. That is all it is good for.

That's considerably smarter than what I wear when in bed sick, so I guess you're doing something right! Get well soon.

I know SF trends away from a more built-up shoulder - and I don't even know whether this one is padded or not - but I do think a slightly wider and more structured shoulder might balance things out more. More closed fronts and a (slightly) lower buttoning point creating a longer lapel line would also help in this regard. YMMV, based on how you want garments to look.

 

I think it makes me look hip-heavy because I am a bit hip-heavy. In general, what would help with that? Lower buttoning stance, more closed quarters, a more structured shoulder, less processed foods?

 

re: the bolded - you and me both, which is probably why I noticed.

 

I think the easiest way to cancel it out is to wear clothes that are traditionally English in style/structure. So yes, a somewhat structured shoulder with enough mild extension to moderate any sloping shoulders, a buttoning point close to the natural waist to give the lapel line some length, and a long enough skirt to the jacket to lie over the hips rather than end at them. Closed fronts also help by adding more visual weight to the centre. Of course, I also have the problem of being short, so jacket length becomes a little bit of devil-and-deep-blue-sea, but such is life.

 

To give this discussion a visual dimension, I've crudely patched together 3 of my recent outfits from this thread. They aren't taken at quite the same size/distance/proportions, so you can't completely "read across" from one photo to the next, but it should give you a general idea of how the more structured English jackets slim me down and reduce the hip-heaviness, compared to the more natural middle one. The blue jacket isn't the best example as it's a bit old now and could do with a few tweaks, but the grey jacket is only a few years old, so is a fair comparison to the natural one. I think the three jackets are also an example of how a structured 3B jacket can look slimmer/better proportioned than a no-longer-perfect structured 2B one, but still, that structured 2B looks better on me than a natural 3B (really a 3-2.5 roll, but whatever)...

The harder way to solve the problem is to work out so your shoulder and chest are naturally a bit bigger. Never going to do that! :laugh:

 

(re: processed foods - I appreciate the jokey sentiment, but actually being a bit heavier hides the hips a bit, by padding out the waist, lessening the steepess of visual change between waist & hips. The tailoring equivalent is not being overly aggressive with waist suppression... but if your shoulders aren't naturally broad, that does necessitate some shoulder structure to prevent jackets looking like barrels!)

 

 

In case anyone was bored enough to have read the above, I've now replaced the original photo to one including today's jacket, another structured 2B, but more recent than the blue one. I still think the structured 3B flatters my build best.

 

 

 

 

Anyway, a gloomy & drizzly day today, so attempting to brighten it up. Also, another "Northern Lights" attempt. Do you think today is better than yesterday's brown outfit? I'm minded to use it as my entry instead...

Nice suit! Only thing I'd comment on is the tie lengths... but I'm guessing its just a quick pic! :)

I'd say the shoulders are fine but the sleeves are definitely too long on both counts (shirt and jacket). Otherwise, it's a handsome suit.

What is wrong with the tie length?

The little end is longer than the big end.
