OTR suits and coats with very little shoulder padding. Who makes them, and what models?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have sloping, hunched shoulders, and prominent deltoid muscles- Finding a coat or suit is a nightmare, as most OTR makers in the 400-1000$ range seem to have some padding to them...I end up with folding in the back, dimpling on the sides, and in general a very tight feeling jacket around the shoulder area. 

 

So far, I've had great luck with 

-Oxxford (1220)

-Various Ralph Lauren Polo and Purple Label suits/coats.

Also tried some more expensive Corneliani coats in a store, and they all had pretty soft shoulders. 

 

Any other makers and models in said price range, that offers soft natural shoulders?

 

Thanks.

That sounds more like a fit issue than a matter of how much padding and wadding is in a jacket's shoulder.

That said, any of the softer, Neapolitan-style RTW makers should have a softer shoulder. Borrelli, etc.

I believe Isaia and Kiton also have little padding. My Caruso has very little shoulder padding as well, but be careful as Caruso makes a million different models.

Thanks 

 

I've been looking into Suitsupply. Love their styling, but a bit limited on the solid colors. The havana looked nice, but noticed that it had patch pockets, and a bit higher button-stance. 

 

Do all their Italian name models generally have soft shoulders?

Southwick (and for Andover Shop). One of the softest shoulders I've ever encountered on RTW.
J Press make an Ivy League style with natural shoulder as well.
