    I'm still in the "Do Like Pliny" camp. Top half/bottom half/shoe selfie, and a fabric close up. I think the general consensus is that your outfits looks far better in real life from a fit perspective than they do in some of these pics.

    Trying to perfect the fit pic might just be more trouble for yourself than it's worth.

    And I agree with you. I've been trying to do it more and I feel like it works well and I've reached out to Pliny as well. On this one I wanted to show as much of the jacket as I could

    Cheers. That jacket is definitely sweet.

    Orazio uses almost no 'structure' on their spalla camicia.

    Thanks for clarifying. Justin's shoulder lines look very clean with this jacket--was curious if that were a function of construction, fit, or Justin having really good shoulders!

    I have broad shoulders for the most part but yea PCK1 is right there is no padding or structure. I love the way this jacket fits and it'll be at the tailor tomorrow to add buttonholes

    Has anyone added a bit of padding to a jacket with unstructured shoulders?

    It's a very simple operation.

    Throw out all of your old clothes...again...and buy all new ones...again.

    Thanks, V3. Will let the tailor have a look but probably will pass.

    Are you sure that the shoulders are unstructured? (Most jackets have at least some padding already in - even if very light, and aren't unstructured unless specifically stated so)

    and why do you want to add padding to an unstructured jacket? Which jacket are you trying to do this to?

    Orazio Luciano uses noticeable canvas to add structure to the front and shoulder up to the armhole, but no padding in the shoulder. Compared to a really unstructured jacket, the front and shoulder are much cleaner. The canvas is not stiff though.

    Is he going to have a picnic attack again? I hope that he tells us what to bring for it - last time, we ended up with excess deviled eggs and cole slaw, and the potato salad went much too quickly . . .. :satisfied:
