I have the same issue - the big head makes the shoulders look smaller, so the shape is important to balance.
This suit doesn't look great; Claggy's is much nicer in fit. Over-surpressing the waist makes the chest bow, and causes that pulling around the middle, and looks like it's someone else's suit. Slim fit isn't about being slim, it's a trendy thing like skinny lapels etc. With a more classic cut that fits you comfortably and is shaped to you, you will never lose. But what makes the shoulders on that guy look prominent is the marked roping - see how high up the sleeveheads are sitting. That's a really great way of making the shoulder look extended without it looking like you're wearing your dad's. I wish my tailor knew how to do it that well. There's no chance of finding a roped shoulder where I live, so sooner or later I guess I'll have to get the money for a proper tailor back in Europe. Or visit Korea, apparently. But you should look out for that as a feature.
P.S. Claggy also has a big head, and uneven shoulders. But then again he's more handsome. Some we win, some we lose. Either way, he's got his local tailor working wonders.
First off, where have you been, sir?
Hope you've been well. Nice to see you back here.
I will have to visit Korea every year from here on out 'cus of my wife, so maybe I will get to B&TAILORS soon.
I didn't know my big head made my shoulders narrower. Bummer.
I asked my friend if, at age 32, I can still broaden my shoulders and he pretty much said, "No."
He said that's all done when you're in high school/college. If you didn't do it back then, then you're pretty much screwed.
Don't know if he's right.
