Noodles. It also helps that Murl takes better photos.

Pads =/ shoulder structure.

 

Also, shoulder extension has nothing to do with pads either.

Still better than bathroom mirror selfies from awkward angles that sometimes result in us seeing Noodles' feet. smile.gif

Edit - Damn. Not exactly the most awesome 4,000th post.

That's what I am referring to when I say an "Italian" style suit or Neapolitan suit. 

Here is Murl in what appears to be in such a suit.  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This looks great on him since he got broad shoulders and some muscle in them shoulders.

However, it does not look so flattering on this person below.

So a person like this should wear a suit with structured shoulders.

So to go back to my original question to @Kent Wang
, since we don't have shoulders like Murl why don't you make some jackets with pads.
I believe kent wang has structured and roped shoulders as options. Read up JeffreyD's thread on shoulder expression

I don't know how much distortion is due to the camera's slight lean against an object. But it looks like I am pushing my hips or belly forward.

Upward camera angle positioned at your belly button is never going to make you look good.    Think of the camera as someone else's eye.  The vantage point looking at a full body is always from head level, slightly downward looking.

Who gives a damn about the pains of narrow or wide shoulders, let's continue using our brains to make money and blow it on clothing. If you work in banking or whatever it is and consider your life "painful" because of narrow shoulders suggest you go to a shrink

Yes, so I have started to position the camera a whole lot higher after reading your comments. I guess I need to figure out how to make the camera stand at a straight position.

I think the discussion here is why Kent Wang does not wear jackets with more pads or structured shoulders.

They have these things called tripods.

I wouldn't recommend using them in your company's conference room. It may raise some eyebrows.

No, I just don't like seeing people waste their own time on trivialities. Can we go back to talking about who owns more ties

No. I just shut the door and pretend I am having an important meeting or a phone call. But if you're outside the conference room, all you're hearing is "shoot" or "capture" or "cheese" as I yell at the camera to snap the picture.

Trivial, indeed. But it's worth the discussion. Unless I have discussed it many times, which I think is the case.
