Anyone else getting tired of seeing Noodles being placated for multiple consecutive pages for the same 2 or 3 suits, all of which he has no reason to "freak out" about?

Noodles, are you a Virgo?

FWIW, 3cm would matter to me

The website says 50R has shoulders of 48 cm. I see 45 cm here.

I am seeing that as well. And 3cm is enough, in some places, to matter. I guess you deleted the pics where you felt the shoulders didn't look right, so I can't be convinced either way. I guess, in this case, either the folks at Formosa, in their wisdom, saw some reason to cut the fresco with slightly narrower shoulders, or they made a mistake.

 

I don't think I own two tailored jackets from the same manufacturer, so I have never worried about the fact that there's almost certainly at least a 3CM difference in shoulder widths between some of my coats.

That's quite a lot and explains the difference we see in the fit pics. A little bit of difference can be expected, especially with handmade suits. But this shouldn't happen, I'd say.

That's over an inch. Ouch

Maybe the suit will stretch a bit with wear? Fresco is new, the other one isn't.

Stretch 3cm? Impossible. Besides, there's more in that shoulder than just the fresco outer layer.

In the end, as Greg says, Noodles should have alerted NMWA about this before he had the suit altered.

Shoes look fine. I think he has largish feet and it's a close cut welt. That exact shoe with a reverse welt would be less long looking.

@The Noodles just enjoy your suit and stop fussing about it. The wide lapels still gives it balanced look.

No wool fiber is going to stretch by an inch so stop misleading him.
