Do softer shouldered jackets, sportcoats, etc. fit larger than coats with more structured shoulders?

For example, would a coat measuring 17.75 fit with soft shoulders fit larger than a structured coat with the exact same measurement?

Can this even be generalized? I hope this makes sense....

Thanks

The only way I could imagine things changing is if a person had very sloping shoulders. The soft jacket would follow the shoulder slope. But you'd think that would end up meaning they'd fit smaller.

How did you specifically learn all about 'fashion/style'? I'm young and ignorant, but I want to learn!

Ideally I'd like to find a real tailor, not a half dry-cleaner half tailor situation. I live in Brooklyn and work in SoHo, so anything below 14th St would be awesome.

Thanks!

Most ready to wear trousers are pretty much cut straight up and down, so if you aren't, it rumples in the back. This can be fixed by a tailor drawing some of the excess material in the back up into the waistband so that when you are wearing them at a comfortable hight they don't pile up as much. Think of it as "lowering the waistband" in the back. Be thankful you aren't me, who has this problem as well as knocked-knees. Good luck.

Cool, thanks for the help! Seems like it probably isn't too tricky of an alteration.

i guess i'll also keep an eye out for trousers with a lower back rise.

Found a sweet Charvet tie at a local thrift store and am wondering how to ascertain, other than looking at it, what kind of shape I should say it is in if I end up reselling it.... Thoughts? Here's the tie in question.

It's hard to tell without a photo of the items in question. You probably won't find a whole lot of support in MC for glen plaid odd trousers since it's a suiting pattern.

No personal experience, but a good friend of mine has got thighs and a bubble butt and after trying on many jeans he settled on 3sixteen. Just sayin.

Are J&M's that were made in American likely to be of the older - higher quality, or did the quality decline prior to moving production overseas?

Very likely to be of higher quality.

Agreed. Their factory is/was here in town, and my grandfather-in-law bought a whole bunch of them on clearance at some point, and they appear to be very good shoes. He actually bought like three pairs of double monks that are really quite nice. Too bad he has big feet.
