In this picture the thickness looks like half inch to 5/8" and this makes it look like there is some padding.

I have some completely unpadded jackets where the canvas is brought up to the seem and where there appears to be a sceond single layer of canvas that runs into the sleeve head to support the roped shoulder. These jackets look the best because I have ridiculously square shoulders and the roped shoulder keeps the formality intact. In fact these jackets on me look like an average guy with padded jacket.

Several Savile Row houses go with the natural shoulder. I've worn a natural shoulder for 10+ years and nobody has ever noticed.

You forgot to include "birthday suit"

My fella is not the only one. And he started out at a different establishment on the Row too.

To be honest, I think you could benefit from roped shoulders with a stiffer pad.

I've always adhered to a natural shoulder with my suits as it is more comfortable and easy to wear. I don't look too stiff in them and when you tall with broad shoulders it just fits better to follow the natural line.
