Camera is an older Canon DSLR. Tripod was some random one I found at Target for like $20. It goes up to 50" which I like.

@justinkapur, much better picture quality. Not ideal, but much better. I can actually get a sense of the texture of the fabric.

I wish I could do more, but its as good as I can get. Again with me not going to work at 6AM and being able to take a picture at 12PM with natural light the quality is much better. Hopefully i can get them to look good

I know it's tough. Some folks are really great photographers, or know people who are. It took me forever just to get my pictures to look decent and they still aren't that great. I hope you will keep at it. Your fits deserve it! :)

Thanks man, will keep trying even if they look like shit. I just gotta learn how to do it better and the only way ill learn is by taking these pictures and getting critiqued

I'm still in the "Do Like Pliny" camp. Top half/bottom half/shoe selfie, and a fabric close up. I think the general consensus is that your outfits looks far better in real life from a fit perspective than they do in some of these pics.

 

Trying to perfect the fit pic might just be more trouble for yourself than it's worth.

And I agree with you. I've been trying to do it more and I feel like it works well and I've reached out to Pliny as well. On this one I wanted to show as much of the jacket as I could

Cheers. That jacket is definitely sweet.

Orazio uses almost no 'structure' on their spalla camicia.

Thanks for clarifying.  Justin's shoulder lines look very clean with this jacket--was curious if that were a function of construction, fit, or Justin having really good shoulders!

I have broad shoulders for the most part but yea PCK1 is right there is no padding or structure. I love the way this jacket fits and it'll be at the tailor tomorrow to add buttonholes

Has anyone added a bit of padding to a jacket with unstructured shoulders?

It's a very simple operation.

 

Throw out all of your old clothes...again...and buy all new ones...again.
