    I love roped shoulders, so that definitely works for me.

    More like "supernatural" look at the seam and shoulder thats built up on his left. This is not a good example of an English DB, I think this man was likely a sergeant or a "middle class" officer......

    Can someone briefly explain (or reference) what roped shoulders are?

    This fabric is very old Zegna wool. And the quality of Zegna than 40 years ago has nothing to do with that today. I found it to Vecchio Drappiere of Milan. Like this?
