My shoulders are A) very sloped (which isn't too big of a deal, and B) "pitch" forward, meaning that usually the front of my shoulders push forward into the sleevehead/seam, causing those nasty dimples or divots. There's some pretty helpful threads here explaining how this can be accounted for by a good tailor, but the only solution I've been able to afford (at least with RTW) is to size up to a 42/44 depending on model, and pay for the tailoring/alterations to get the rest passable.
Don't know if this is possibly part of your issue, but there is definitely an issue with the shoulder(s). I'll try and find the link and post it here in an edit for the shoulder divots.

Hard to tell anything about fit from those pics, but the jacket might be a bit tight. Is that a patterned shirt, glen plaid pattern? That won't get much love here.
I do think the color scheme is rather not spring/summer. It's dark, very gray. I'm fine with dark grey trousers, but really feel them to be a fall/winter look. So, your combination color and texture wise seems out of season (but would be fine in colder times). Maybe still cold where you are?
I'd also prefer more contrast between bottom and top (go with true northern lights, if wearing those trousers). My two cents.
Thanks. Cold wet dark day in NYC, so colors and textures weather appropriate. It is a glen plaid light blue shirt, didn't realize that was frowned upon. I dont see it as much different than a check blue, but clearly I am missing some context. Jacket does look tight, I agree, that may br my leaning back trying to take the photo.thanks again for your thoughts.post #25060 of 376626/2/15 at 7:34pmpost #25061 of 376626/2/15 at 7:40pmQuote:Originally Posted by WillingToLearn

Nothing wrong with a glen plaid shirt, considering that you combine it with solids.
If you only want to wear stuff that nobody on SF frowns upon, you'll be wearing a navy patch pocket sc, light grey flannels and a brown grenadine every day.
Edit: I'm looking forward to hear David Reeves' comments too. I like the bespoke stuff that he posts, but if this is what his MTM gets you...post #25062 of 376626/2/15 at 7:46pmpost #25063 of 376626/2/15 at 7:48pmpost #25064 of 376626/2/15 at 7:59pmpost #25065 of 376626/3/15 at 1:41amQuote:
Thanks, Claghorn. Yes, that is what I meant. My Vandas are also 7-fold. I feel they are to light for my taste. Given my preference for heavier ties than Vanda's, would I be unsatisfied with ET's 3-folds as well? I'm looking at the 3x striped green and navy ties, which are 3-fold.
