Although this is obviously Spoo and I was using the pictures to answer his questions, any comments from the tailors on the fit of the jacket?

Are you posting these pics as illustration of your point? Needless to say it's rather subjective - and seems a little odd to me - but I would have thought that Spoo hardly has a pronounced sloping shoulder. I've seen much more pronounced sloping shoulders here.

I'm not talking about his shoulders sloping, I'm referring to the sloped, concave up shape of the jacket shoulder.

I could be wrong, though.

by golly,i think you are right. but this will require surgical ???

There are laws against that. Doesn't mean it can't be done, though.

Concave shoulders are knows as 'pagoda' shoulders, though I don't really see those on either of the pics of Spoo which you posted.

i wouldn't call that "concave"
isn't that just how it looks when you have roped shoulders?

Spoo's coats look like they have roped shoulders, not concave ones... I'd suggest reading some of Jeffreyd's posts on shoulder types and pagoda shoulders FIRST ... then come back and explain what you like about sloped shoulders. Would help to get your terminology right, as you comments are a bit confusing...

No, there are roped shoulders that don't have pagoda/sloping shoulders.

and that RLBL jacket looks like the guy is wearing football shoulder pads....
you think that looks better than what spoo is wearing?
post #192 of 5378
a pagoda shoulder is concave.

a roped shoulder is a regular with the roping done on the top of the sleeve.
its actually a misnomer that is commonly accepted.

No.... which is why I said I like sloped shoulders, lol.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but sloped shoulders is a physical attribute. The model wearing that RLBL suit has very square shoulders, which makes the jacket seem even more boxy. Poor choice of model, if you ask me.

Here he is wearing a skin tight crewneck... Very square shoulders. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11754733&cp=2871712.2887664&view=99&parentPage=family

I guess you can pad the crap out of a jacket in order to get someone who has very square shoulders to look like the are sloping... not sure.

To some extent, I think it's based on the model. But I have some RLPL and RLBL sport coats that create a very nice slope with a roped sleeve head. While I have some Hickey Freeman jackets that create a much more hump like line to the shoulder with a roped sleeve head as well.
