Newspapers won't do what you want to that suit. The reason the shoulders look "rumpled" is because they have no padding. No amount of newspaper or anything else will change that. Maybe stuffing it to the gills will work fine as long as the thing is not worn, but before the jacket is put on, the paper has to come out. And then all that fine effort will have been for naught.
And shoulder padding is NOT CONSERVATIVE. It is for designers and goombahs.
Manton, I appreciate the effort you are making but I have to go with my own professional experience as I feel comfortable that my taste level and think that my personal opinions on conservative dress are appropriate for the business environment that I am familiar with. To be honest I have never seen a suit jacket without some sort of shoulder padding and if I did I don’t think I would purchase one no matter how conservative it appeared on the hanger in the store, knowing that it could look so rumpled in the shoulders while being worn.
