Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 2464

post #36946 of 37405

Everything about the shoulder is developed in the canvass. Shoulder structure and shape is more about the canvass construction first and everything else second. The cloth follows the line and shape of the canvass. 

 

Shoulder is shaped by the cut in the canvass and how the shape is enforced by padding stitches and iron work to the canvass. Structure and firmness is determined by the weight of the haircloth or whatever  other material you use in the shoulder and chest. The haircloth will hold the shoulder line up for extended shoulders regardless of using shoulder pads or not using pads.

 

Will try to take some pictures when making up canvass this week. Maybe a visual would clarify this

Thanks for chiming in, Chris.

Curious, my understanding is that softly padded extended shoulders often risk getting droopy in the end. Meaning the shoulder line doesn't stay straight since minimal wadding also means minimal structure. Would relying on just haircloth mean that you get this droopiness sooner/ to a greater degree?

If it was done in purpose, I don't think it looks good at all.

Why do you post travel related questions in this thread and not under travel?
post #36953 of 37405

My apologies, please disregard.

 

I thought this thread was more of an open ended thread. We have discussed travel before - along with politics, religion, philosophy, and a host of other items that have separate forums for themselves as well. Many of those who post in this thread do not go into the other fora, and so would not be able to respond.

Because this thread travels everywhere.

On mobile, but there's a rimshot emoticon right? Someone help me out.

And to think I was contempating sharing a legendary DJ set with you all. I guess that would be off-topic, god forbid.

Any advice on what sort of suit and shirt would best complement - or be complemented by - this tie? I like the tie, but it has never looked 'right'. It's a spongy turquoise wool from Drakes.

Suit is grey flannel and shirt is light blue in this over-saturated pic.

Probably nothing. You can have two of three elements (spongy, turquoise, and wool) but not all three at the same time. Tbh it looks like something that would be used for a Le Sportsac bag.

Teal is very hard to work in. I dislike that color as it looks artificial for the most part.  Maybe in a summer-only tan suit?

I thought this was a family-oriented forum.
