    He's by no means a fragile guy but he's gotten the crap kicked out of him so far in his career. Denver is letting him go at the best possible time. Besides, they have some legit runners still if they can correct their fumbling issues.

    But Peyton is gonna pass 45 times per game regardless so who cares

    Hey guys, super bummed need to vent. Suit Supply Napoli 38L. Love the cut and fit and I find the length more flattering. Pants are a bit tight, but they could be let out. Shoulders are a disaster. I'm fine with the fit on the left shoulder (it's not perfect but I can manage), but the right is my sloped shoulder and it's a nightmare. Now I'm stuck with 2 suit supply suits I need to flip and no idea of a maker to even begin looking for a properly fitting jacket for me.

    I'm dissatisfied with EVERY jacket I own. Jackets that are slim enough in the shoulders to accommodate my slope are too short for my prominent seat. Jackets that are long enough aren't typically as flattering and have too wide shoulders. I'll keep looking, but this is so discouraging. Thanks for hearing me out.

    I don't know that it's the shoulder width that's the issue. It may be something which requires sleeve rotation. Worth posting in the Tailor thread, as everything else looks solid. It also might be something fixable by adding a bit of extra padding.

    @luv2breformed I have forward shoulders too and the Napoli and the Sienna are a disaster on me. Not even the 56 in the Sienna fitted me on the shoulder. The Havana, Washington (suit jacket, the odd jacket didn't fitted me well) and the Soho are the nicest.

    Noodles came to his senses and opted to not go out drinking on his wedding weekend.

    I'm thinking of putting the money towards a tie or some pocket squares for Rudals. Let me know (here or PM) if this is alright with y'all.

    Doodals that does sound a sensible decision, no fun at all, but sensible nonetheless. :spew:

    Clags, I'm happy to do whatever would be best for the newly wed, leave it with you.
