I voted for choice one, but I prefer no padding, natural shoulder, with no extension. Or whatever this is:

Excellent dimple also, very understated.

Little padding, with lots of roping.

However, when I wear my PZ suit with a heavily padded Roman shoulder, I always get plenty of compliments. The effect is there.

Thanks, Soph. I appreciate a good dimple

Manton, I like the shoulders on your suit. Would that be classified as a British Drape?

I`m not a fan of droopy extended shoulders on myself, but I like seeing them on some people.

I thought the shoulders on Whoopee's Hong Kong suits were rather nice.

Well, there's no extension and a classic English drape would have at least an extra 1/4", and usually more like 1/2". That coat is intended to look more Neapolitan.

Those photos make me feel a lot better about the fact that I've bever worn the tie clip I picked up two years ago.

i like both soft with a touch of extension and also the way Manton discribed too

for me it depend on how i want the overall look i like Mantons way for business/ citty suits and with a touch of extension for my sport coats and odd JKT's, this is so for work i still have a moderate level of cleaness in the chest but also have the comfort of the drape. and with the extension i can pop a jumper or some more layers on underneth if needs must!

Oooh, shoulders are one of my favorite parts of a coat. I prefer a little extension and a little rope -- say, Kilgours.

I agree that Edmorel's jacket appears to be too tight, but that picture's small and dark, so it's hard to tell what that dimple under the sleevehead really looks like.

I do think ones genetics, build and posture has a lot to do with how each style can look. For instance, drizzt3117 prolly has the biggest drop from shoulder to waist of any on the forum, he has large and muscular shoulders. I would think very minimal or no padding would be the most appropriate, but his padded Brioni models tend to look the by far best on him.
