    The other photos weren't even usable :S

    Think the waistcoat is a bit high after all.

    Noodles, the left side is rolling as you would want and as you could hope for in this suit. Help the right side out by just pushing it over when you wear it, using only the second button. I bet over time it will mostly roll over the top button. The the lapel is reasonably soft, this might work fine.

    Is that one of the suits you had made in HK recently, @Isolation? Does look good, especially considering the first fit pics you showed here. I think the waistcoat is just fine. Trousers too narrow, but you already knew that. Nice suit overall!

    Noodles, I like the suit and the hard 3 is fine. Agree with SB that you should take it out a tad.

    RTC, please no.

    Thanks kulata. Pagoda shoulder might be exactly what I'm looking for. To be clear, it is the convexity at the top part of the shoulder that appeals to me. Maybe the effect is convexity along the whole shoulder line, but it's the top part that speaks to me. I've circled it in the following pictures:

    Is this the pagoda shoulder phenomenon?

    I thought gorge was the "<" at the end of the lapel where the lapel meets the collar? Does this bending of the shoulder line have anything to do with how high you place the gorge? The last comparison picture features two SCs with equally high gorges to my eye, but only the left SC shows the phenomenon I'm trying to explain.

    Thanks.

    Noodles, wear a tie, put on the matching pants and take a picture from a normal, chest level angle. I bet the suit would look great if you'd do that. It's impossible to say much from these angles, but it looks pretty good so far.

    What MF said. You're a great guy, but your selfie game sucks (maybe not the worst thing in the world to suck at ;) ).

    The pear effect is occuring due the waist being too narrow for me?

    Probably, but impossible to tell until you show us a proper picture. People always make such strong statements based on weird angled pictures, while it is (should be?) common knowledge that the angle can affect your appearance tremendously.
