All the pics of me in my suits are at odd angles so I dont know if they would help but my avatar picture I am wearing one.
Shoulder wise with all my CT suits I have to have the shoulders altered but this is because I go to the gym a lot and play a lot of rugby so the shoulder pads just seem to sit on top of them and I get this kind of effect.
So I tend to have the pads reduced or taken out.
2 years ago I got the first Blue Birdseye Tyrwhitt produced as uniform and from owning won and having the new one in the store, to this day that something about the shoulders on the birdseye is wrong. Its alot thicker all over and a tighter binding seems to give that sand dune appearance on the shoulders as seen on the picture you linked.
Now this was 2 years ago but its the only pic I have of my Blue Birdseye, this suit to this day has not been altered at all mostly becasue I now wear a 42 Slim fit instead of this 44 Classic fit in the picture.
did anyone order this jacket and can say anthing about the shoulder padding? And if the color is indeed "bright" blue?
