Well that is good to know I am not alone!smile.gif

Here are a few links:

http://www.barneys.com/Isaia-Windowpane-Checked-Two-Button-Gregory-Suit-504003586.html

http://www.barneys.com/isaia-sirio-aquaspider-two-button-suit-502927987.html

http://www.barneys.com/brunello-cucinelli-three-button-sportcoat-503785652.html

Now that I have dug into it more, it seems to be primarily used on the Barneys website. Perhaps it is just a mistake that someone made along the way that nobody caught?

Pretty sure they just mean the sleeves are unfinished and ready to tailor...adjust length and sew on buttons. No idea why the shoulders are mentioned.

Great idea, just what I needed! I really want a pair of C&J Monktons, but am worried about that the 348 last will be too narrow. I wear AE Norwich in 12D. Can someone help me understand how I might expect the Monktons (btw, the size I think is 12E) would fit?

Hey Krang, your best bet is to ask in our Crockett & Jones Appreciation Thread.

Some opinions needed here.

 

Would you say this white windowpane jacket in linen-cotton is too impractical? Would these look great with dark denim, navy cotton pants? Any ideas about matching pants is appreciated.

 

Regards

Sorry bud, but I can't imagine wearing that with anything. Just one guys opinion though...

Hi all - great forum!

 

I have a fairly muscular build, with sloping shoulders.

 

I've knocked back quite a few OTR jackets because my delts sit way below the point of the jacket shoulder, and so there's a big divot. I've been looking at the SuitSupply Copenhagen because I think an unstructured shoulder is my only hope!

 

Anyway, I've just realised the problem is worse on my right because my rear deltoid on that side is underdeveloped, meaning in a lot of jackets I'll fill the shoulder at the front but there's a divot to the rear. Sorry I don't have photos.

 

My question:

How far do people go in constructing shoulders to address a 'problem' like this? Are there any simple options?

 

I could work on it at the gym but after 20 years in the gym they're unlikely to change dramatically without an amount of effort I could not sustain.

 

Thanks for any ideas or information!

Welcome to the forum, @SimpleStyle.  It's really hard to give feedback without seeing the problem.  If you can, snap a picture with a jacket on and post the picture here http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions.  Hopefully one of the tailors that follow the thread will chime in to let you know if anything can be done to OTR jackets to address the issue.  Best of luck.
