Steed's style does not include strong shoulders...they are soft.
I don't anything from these tailors, but from what I've read:
Drape cut (owner is ex-Anderson and Sheppard, the Savile Row firm where the drape cut was developed)
Soft shoulder (another Anderson and Sheppard characteristic)
Less flared skirt
Lean cut (there are no vertical folds in the chest area as with the Drape)
Stronger shoulder, often with roped expression
More flared skirt
Ah yes, thanks. I guess it's correct to say Steed's is basically a version of the drape cut that is popular in SR in general? I really like that kind of styling but with a stronger roped/pagoda shoulders, so perhaps it's more accurate for me to say that I like hunstman kind of styling. I do like 1 button jackets as well so, eh.
I guess living in the UK and reading all this shakespeare has turned me into British styles. I think 2 years ago I would not have dreamed of myself liking tweed.
^ Drape cut does not have strong shoulders. I think if you walked into Steed and asked for a jacket with strong padded shoulders they might look at you kinda funny. They could technically do it, but it's not their specialty.
Huntsman is considered either "military" or "equestrian" cut. It has strong padded shoulders and often roped shoulder expression.
Drape and military/equestrian are very different. (See above)
Oh yeah, also, I'm not really feeling braces:
I think it's largely because the trousers I have with braces button are quite tight on the waist so um... they hold on their own without belt or braces so the braces are just superflous. I think I should get looser trousers to wear with braces...?
I understand for people who don't wear their trousers on waist or who have different body shapes, but it seems like braces are kind of pointless for someone who has a lean waist and want to wear trousers there as I do.
Those pants don't look like they fit you
I see pockets flaring. Too small
Besides the fit issue, it looks like you are wearing your trousers lower. Not sure what you define as the "waist". Braces require a looser fitting trouser, and are typically worn with the trouser waistband at or on the hips, which requires a greater rise measurement. We would need a full length picture for better assessment.
Yeah I just took pictures with my better fitting pants from dream.
I have to say this shot makes it look way too high waisted in the nerdy category, but I think it's the angle and outfit (or lack thereof)
Definitely too fitted to need braces. fwiw I would consider myself to be wearing them quite high already. It's at my belly button and right above the hipbone.
I tend to prefer side tabs with odd trousers and wear most of mine at the natural waist, which requires a higher rise than a lot of more modern trousers. I've started wearing braces since some weight loss has resulted in looser fitting trousers and I am now sold on them. The key with braces is that you get to wear your trousers cut a bit looser, which tends to be more comfortable. Your trousers will probably hang a bit better with braces in any event, but I currently only wear them with trousers that fit a bit looser. I prefer doing this with suits or at least when I am wearing a jacket as I do not care for the look of visible braces when not wearing a jacket.
Noodles got caught checking SF on a date and has to lay low for a while.
I hope you are joking.
Would not surprise me...
I hope he is not joking.
I love getting caught checking SF mid convo with IRL people.
My gf sent this article to me yesterday: http://www.boredpanda.com/the-death-of-conversation/
I complained that she was the one always on her phone, but she denied the sentiment and told me that I am always on my phone.
Not joking. Got a PM with Kulata
