It's too light a blue. Conservative colors are navy and charcoal.

For lighter blues (a lighter navy, french blue), if you do want to try pull them off, I'd definitely have it worsted and untextured so it's more formal.

I got a bespoke navy blazer made and asked him to do the neopolitan soft shoulder, "Spalla Camicia". It looks like each shoulder is slightly different, however, and I'm not sure which is correct.

Left Shoulder (Pic 1) goes outward and forms a dimple/pucker of fabric. This one has more visibly more pleats/shirring on the shoulder.

Right Shoulder (Pic 2) goes straight down like a shirt, and drapes along my shoulder.

Neither shoulder has any padding at all. Which shoulder is correct, so I can have him redo the other?

Not that much of a difference as far as I can tell.


Could it be the case that the jacket shoulders are in fact identical but your shoulders are slightly different width/stance/slope and your tailor has not accounted for it (enough)?

Anyone have experience tailoring a double breasted jacket?

Received a Corneliani double breasted blazer hand me down. Size is my size, 36R, but the thing is: shoulders are very padded and the thing is dang boxy--pretty much zero waist suppression. Would need to have the waist taken in to make it wearable for me; shoulders might be fine so long as the waist is brought in.

I realize pics would probably help, but just wondering if this is something that sounds like it's in the realm of doable (slimming jacket; maybe removing shoulder padding) or too much major surgery. Are the mechanics of tailoring a DB similar to that of SB?

What do you think about merlot colored Allen Edmond Mcallisters for interview shoes?

I was going to go with walnut Strands, I think I should be a little more conservative but I still want some character.

Having character stand out in your shoes shouldn't really be crossing your mind at an interview. Dark brown would be best but I have a hard time believing merlot would cost you a job if that's what you got. Definitely pick the dark shoes. Light shoes are for light suits and light suits aren't for interviews.

What industry?

Merlot AE McAllisters would probably be fine for a lot of situations, I'd say.

Yeah, walnut Strands get compliments but they can be a little bright if trying to look conservative.

Yeah thats true. I guess moreso than character, I just want shoes that I would enjoy wearing more often than just interviews, which is why I want something more unique than brown or black shoes.

I'd say you're fine. I think you only have to worry about the most conservative dress for, say, business, banking, finance, or law professions.
