    Who's king of the roped shoulder? King of Roped, Pagoda shoulder?

    My Picks:

    Ralph Lauren Purple Label
    Tom Ford
    Brioni (maybe)


    RLPL: This one is actually me; I couldn't find a better RLPL shoulder picture. Funny enough, this shoulder structure is closer to most black label than purple label even though it's purple label.)

    Im telling you in two years time the bankers will be asking "do you make those suits with pointy shoulders?" instead of the usual "do you make slim suits, erm but not too slim".

    The difference here though is that it looks like a heavily padded shoulder. The ones in the original post are structured on the ends, but for the most part, lightly padded.

    I don't doubt it. If done right they have a great way of making a shoulder look manly and strong.

    It's not. but it's part of what makes those shoulders (to me) the kings of the roped shoulder.

    Caraceni. pictures from Sator's site.
    I like roping when it's more integrated into the whole vs. seemingly tacked on like decoration.

    I prefer the shoulders in the Brioni three piece suit.
