Still trying to figure out my picture set up. For some reason, in this lighting, my camera has a really hard time focusing on some of my jackets.

I hate you. You're like a machine. Everything you crank out is good. 

The question is can RTC accomplish something like this with thrifting?

I'm curious about Ring Jackets having seen them on Tumblr for a while now. The things that jump out at me from your jacket are the high gorge and narrower lapel than I would have thought, though I suspect that's still 3.25 inches at least. The shoulders seem nice and natural (not built up). Your thoughts? Fully canvassed?

My Ring Jacket has nearly 3.75" lapels.

I've just measured mine, since I'm at home not in the office and have a tape-measure, and they are exactly 3.25. I don't know what size jacket you wear, but one possibility is that Ring Jacket do the sensible thing of having lapels widths appropriate to the size of the jacket (I'm at the bottom end: 36S), and another (not incompatible) one is that they do different lapel widths on different models.

It's a 40, so not that much bigger. Perhaps a different cut?

Edit: Tie looks strangely dark on my computer screen. Darker than on my phone. It's supposed to be dark brown. Whatevs, as the kids say.

I think that's the shortest jacket I've seen you post in my time here, AAS. Though not egregiously so.

One of your best, Noodles.

No apology needed, Nabil. You da man 4ever.

Just some food for thought...

 

*terms and conditions apply... i.e. I could be completely wrong and it might be the angle or the stance or any number of other things.

 

It's RTW Sartoria Partenopea. I do have wider hips than usual, I wear about a size 35 trousers. The low angle distorts things a little (short photographer), but yeah, I won't be able to hide my hips completely, no matter what I do. My shoulders are (luckily) wider than my hips though, as can be seen in the following pics:
