    It was one of several Klein blue pieces, I bought the light cotton blazer which is a warm weather favourite (unlined, super light, nice colour)

    DH dusk wash jeans for this season are so nice... probably blowout city considering the thinness, but 100% cotton MIJ with an interesting treatment that's part of the fabric as opposed to sitting on top.

    my jacket is sz 3, 21" ptp, fits me extremely snug in the arms, as it has high tight armholes. 2 will probably be fine, i would think, but 1 may fit you, depending on the piece.

    the entire arm is quite snug on me, right down to the wrist, i'm approx 5'10 170, and the rest of the body is somewhat loose.

    which jacket btw?

    posted in questions thread but I feel like I'm more likely to get a response here. Just got a hand-tailored blazer with these very prominent roped shoulders. It's really nice (fully canvassed, made at Primo in Long Island City) and is perfect except that the shoulders are a little pronounced for my taste. Is there anything I can do to soften the shoulder? Or will the shoulder settle and soften with some wear? Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated.

    alternative: or do I just embrace the full-on pagoda shoulder? looks a lot like a Devoa blazer, just for reference, like this sort of thing:

    currently looking at a long coat but just wanna dip my toe into the brand really
    would try any piece that looks good but afraid my height to shoulder-width ratio is not good for the pagoda, been looking mainly at raglan or soft shoulder jacket/coats

    Either the dude just refuses to talk, or that is the worst interviewer ever.

    I'd be somewhat wary with relying purely on measurements with Devoa. The anatomical construction can make some things a little iffy. Daisuke dissuades stores posting up the measurements for this reason. Armholes are high and sleeves are very slim.

    My recommendation is to go for whatever size you usually are; Devoa sizing going as 1 = 44/XS, 2 = 46/S, etc.

    Bear in mind there are some pieces that fit a size up or down, but these are generally quite rare.

    Edited in addition: You're definitely going to want a size 1 if you're 5'6. The long coats come to below my knee and I'm 6'0. The sleeves are also very long; knuckle length.

    I believe the rope can be minimized a bit -- but may not be able to totally removed it unless the entire sleevehead is redone. Also the results will probably vary depending on fabric and-or proficiency of your tailor. I'd ask him/her first. If the fronts are sort of pointed/squared like that Devoa blazer, there's a nice symmetry with the pointy shoulders -- then I'd say 'embrace the Pagoda'.

    I have a couple of jackets with pagodas. It was kind of a shock at first after having worn the soft/natural eye-tailian look for so long. Now I like them for their.. um, flair. [​IMG]
