Pliny, thank you! You're absolutely right. It's a Vanda. So is the pocket square but I'd be surprised if *anyone* guessed that! :)

To be honest soft shoulders really isn't for a lot of people and many will be better served with an armored English cut.

This is more of a straight on shot as the other one I was kind of turned towards 3/4 view. I didn't know what pagoda shoulders were until you guys mentioned it here. It's a Formosa, it does seem to extend my shoulders a bit which I'm fine with as I have pretty narrow shoulders and birthing hips so this kind of hides that fact. They're definitely different but I'm actually quite fond of how they look and I like a bit of the roped shoulder as well. With my other jackets having less structure I feel like they do less to flatter my funky shape. They make me feel more round.

Formosa in question with a more straight on view.

Very nice, but I think a paler blue, pink or even - shock! - white shirt would be even better here.

Let summer end without having worn seersucker? I think not.
