    Thanks, yeah all of this seasons ties are 8.5cm. I'll probably do some 9cm in the near future as well.

    I'm truly beginning to believe Gianni is a troll.

    Rudals read about shoulder divots on the forum. It requires extensive surgery to get them fixed but unfortunately almost all your jackets suffer from them.

    Noodles those lapels look fine. Sure they're not as wide as traditional peaks but they're fine.

    If you start selling some 9 cm ties, you've got a new customer. I've liked your ties in the past, but 8 cm is too narrow for me.

    I guess we are at a level where we are looking at the details and fine tuning them. That is, my fit. Now I finally understand what Clag is talking about. I can see it. Let me look back at all the pix of that jacket and if it does exist, will ask The tailor what he can do. If not, this is another that I will be looking out for when buying new suits. Thank you pointing this out, Clags. Here's a fit from my weekend. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Side tracking for one minute.
    Finally had to tell my wife to stop feeding me. I am 13 lbs or almost 6kg off my normal weight. We eat the same dang things but she has a flat stomach while I have a big fat belly and none of my clothes fit me. LML.

    My new goals.
    Get the C&J oxfords.
    Get a bunch of spread collar shirts cus I love them now.
    Get a bespoke suit (sharkskin grey) with peak lapel from Field Tailoring.

    Or, you know, don't fucking eat everything you see while walking down the street.

    Noodles, the jacket that Clags pointed out looks too small in the shoulders/chest for you, which is what I suspect is causing the problem with the shoulder. I say this based on how the lapel is pulling away from the shirt collar creating a gap, the slight curve to the lapel and the overall tightness of the jacket's fit. As counter-intuitive as it may seem, my experience has been that my jackets which are a smidge too small in the shoulders/chest have had similar shoulder issues.

    I DO NOT think it is the jacket.
    I just got fat. This one slopes very nicely
    I am not posting another fit until I lose 15 lbs this week.

    I presume that's the same suit, Rudals?

    If so, I'm guessing it's the way you are posing in the picture. Seems like your arms are out to the side a bit more in the first pick.

    Yes, it is the same suit.
    I think it is a combination of my stance/posture and my weight gain.
    I'll try to relax a bit next time I wear this jacket.
