The above ensembles are all superb, though where would one wear any of the top three?
When you effortlessly move between your estate and the business where you are chairman of the board? Even if we live more mundane lifes, we owe ourselves the pleasure of having one or two or three dresses that do not have many uses?

I do not disagree with you. I have a number of Attolini and Kiton suits, which do not get enough wear.

So glad TR Pescod is back.

I disagree. They all miss, IMHO. Jackets seem too small. Double breasted vests don't
work w/ small jackets .Too much shoulder padding .The first set of Attolini's on Il Gattopardo
are much better in how they hang, although the cuts are not really my preference.
This Rubinacci, to my mind much more elegant Than these two sets of suits/jackets.

I do agree a double-breasted vest under single-breasted coat seems a bit forced.

In contrast to the how you perceive the Attolini as being too slim/small, this Rubinacci looks like it's balooning a bit around the chest/armscye. One the aspects of Attonlini's cut I most like is the slimness of fit and waist suppression, mainly because it works for me personally.

I also prefer Attolini's slightly more structured shoulder and padding as compared to a more entirely deconstructed/natural Neapolitan shoulder. Compared to the Rubinacci, I don't see a large difference in how padded the shoulders appear - just that the Attolini is a tad more extended, and I think appear stronger also because of the slimness and degree to which the model's bodies are accentuating these aspects. Again, I personally like the stronger shoulder of Attolini, as I think it imparts more elegance, not less.

It's my jacket. It has virtually no padding. I am thick w/
high shoulders and a big chest and unfortunately, mid-
section. It fits, except when I put on about three pounds.
Then it is a bit sung at the button point. I should probably have it
let out a bit.
