Okay, here is a shirt only picture.  This is my latest Luxire, which I had modified recently to adjust for sloped shoulders to see if it would address the v I usually get in the front: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think you have normal sloping shoulders. [...]

 

Looks that way to me, too, though to err on the side of caution the camera needs to be set dead horizontal at the level of the collar bone if one wants to be certain about shoulder angle.  This looks like it might be lower than that and angled up slightly.  Pictures are tricky.

Ac :) 

 

This collar was a Luxire experiment that I won't be repeating.  It's fine with a jacket, but keeps flying away without one.

the suits fit you nicely, but if I would make changes it would be going for the 4 inch lapel and maybe trying a softer shoulder expression

 

The gray one has the 4.25 inch lapel and the soft shoulder.  Are you suggesting I go with the no padding option with KW next time or look for a different cut altogether?  Isn't the no padding option less formal?

Camera was 3 inches below collarbone level.

If you are bothered with the formality, you can try the no padding option on a less formal fabric like fresco or Panama weave. If you are comfortable with it then keep using it. I was more focused on the navy suit (browsing on cellphone), the 4.25 inch lapel makes a lot of difference

Thanks.

Noodles, if you want the Magic Mike experience, you have to pay the $10 at the theatre.  You can bring Mrs. Noodles along and pretend you are only going for her.  :D

Watching Magic Mike with your girl — like preheating an oven for 2 hours

Give it time.  You can go much, much lower.

Being dragged to a chic flick or being dragged to a womens clothing store (i.e. Victoria's Secretary)

Hopefully these two see the @ and don't mind. I know both are in Florida and have good taste.

I could probably give some good recs for Tampa! PM me if you're ever in that area...unfortunately don't know much about Jacksonville though.
