l'm a huge fan of the soft shouldered (Neapolitan?) look on a jacket, which is part of a suit.
Apart from going MTM P Johnson etc, is there any OTR options, sub $1000.00 in Oz? Or do l have to look offshore? Is that look only achieved via MTM or bespoke?
I tried to be as specific as l can - feel free to torch me if l crumbled!
You could find a soft shouldered (as in no padding) jacket from both MJ bale and Herringbone for sub $1000.
If it's a true 'shirt shoulder' you're after, with a pleated sleeve-head etc, I doubt you will get that here without going MTM. However, if you know your measurements shopthefinest.com has many Italian makers on offer that are under $1000. I've found their measurements to be accurate and they generally offer great deals.
