    So Rudals I'll attempt to explain why the silhouette of that latest coat is much more flattering on you than the previous ones.

    First the older smaller coats, see the effect it has with the shoulders creating an A shape of your torso? It's quite, well not feminine but definitely not masculine either.

    Second the new coat, the extended shoulder is much more flattering and combined with the waist nip, gives you a much more masculine V shape. This is what you should look for in newer coats. If this has been covered already, my apologies I haven't been keeping a close eye on the thread for a while.

    Noodles did you get the waist shaped on that jacket? Either you're standing weird, or it looks like it could use a little of bit of shaping

    @Henry Carter

    Are you sure that isn't a picture of the same suit taken at a weird angle?

    hmm perhaps your right. Rudals? Funny Angle or weight loss/gain? Either way the bottom version is much more flattering and the top version is what I noticed the majority of his coats looked like in the 38R.

    P.S You do have some issues with the trousers also. The back rise looks too long perhaps (notice the sagging around your back thighs) and they could be lengthened 2cm.

    Thanks for chiming in.
    I believe the issue with the trousers is, once again, what my tailor referred to as balance issue.
    Basically, I have a flat buttocks which causes the extra fabric in the back to just...cause bagginess(?).
    The length will be adjusted. I think I need a break.

    JRD, developing a soft spot for GC now?
    THanks both...actually will be in Berlin and am thinking about stopping by Shibumi. Still, ties will I think run about $100 after VAT is removed, and that's in Vanda territory...still the burgundy/navy block stripe and the brown shantung striped (or just the solid brown shantung) look very tempting.
