Dan138,

Sorry dude - but as best I can tell from that photo the shoulders are about 2" too wide on each side. This cannot be fixed without a total redo.

baldy[1].gif I knew it. If the pads got shortened, would the sleeves get shortened too?

looks good. as mentioned, undo top button. I'd keep the color combo but switch out teh satin tie to something with more pattern in it and a pocket square would go a long way here. also lowish armholes are revealed! definitely above average though.

This was an unnaturally low angle which is not very flattering. I'll crack out the tripod next time.
you haz learned much! color combo seems off somehow, but fit is generally good. either it's the camera angle or maybe that SC could use some waist shaping...

suit/sportscoat shoulder should end... where your shoulder end! maybe a little more, but basically around the edge of your shoulder.

My shoes were black. But my pants were pink. Does that negate the black shoe thing?

Yes, me - but what about my hem made you think its me?

Thank you - Marinella, not Drakes - and are you asking me inadvertently if it is bigger than a babys arm? patch[1].gif

Yes, grown mens style, but I got that from PG... did you use that phrase? If so, evidence please that you predated PG's bRog references to it and royalties will be paid. smile.gif

I'm a little confused here. Where is this so-called "end of shoulder"? just before the shoulder starts to curve/slope down to my arm? or right at the edge of the 90 degree angle? Sorry for my broken English :/

What about the shape of the pads? Are those too boxy? Too roped? Should I remove the pads altogether? Sorry if I seem too anxious. Gonna attend a big event next week and just want to look my best nod[1].gif

Exactly where your shoulder "ends" is flexible due to personal taste and head/shoulder size. But general around where your shoulder bone "ends", no more than 1/2" inch beyond or so.

The coat looks like it may be a size (or two) too big. Take a better shot in better light and we may be able to help more.

Gold stars today to Pandarts, Spoo, IST, NDW, and PG. No time to go through them all tonight, but looking good all.

Thanks Spoo just been spending some time going over my wardrobe again and expanding into areas I once was a bit apprehensive to venture into. As long as there's stress in my days there will be a smoke in my hand laugh.gif

@ master-classter Thank you sir I appreciate your kind words.

OK guys, here's some better pics for you to decide whether the jacket, particularly the shoulders, is/are too big or not. Never mind the bulgy knot, button-down with tie, and the unironed pants. I was in a rush. Also added 2 pics of lower body part for you to judge. By the way, how to make knit tie knot less bulgy?

Forget the bulgy knot, how did you go from black to white?

Rather bizarre then. You look literally like a different person. Shoulders are too big. smile.gif

I don't have a camera so this is the only picture of my outfit. Sorry for putting one hand in my pocket as the suit is ventless.

Nah, it's only because of the lightning.

If I get the shoulders shortened would the sleeves get shortened too?
