    I would agree that the narrow shoulders idea is a possibility. The other possibility is that the collar or the top seams (I don't know the names, sorry :( ) are not sitting right and could lead to those bumps and creases which can be excerbated by the angle. I had a few jackets with this problem and my tailor adjusted the collar and the seams on the top of the shoulders and it lays flat now. Just a possibility! Also, Derek, what kind of hangers do you use? I notced when I switched to more rounded hangers I didn't see those bumps as much. Not saying you have bad hangers, just again hypohthesizing because the look is good on the combinations I would want the jacket to match the visual appeal of the other elements.

    I must get one of those. Here in 'Murica we read left to right and that is a great work of art.

    i have no idea whats going on...When i looked in the mirror these arent visible. Ill take a couple jackets with pics to my tailor next week and see what my problem is.

    For hangers, i have a dozen Saks suit hangers a buddy got for me that worked there. very wide shoulders. methinks my problem is unsolveable. hahahaha

    Thanks! The lapels need to be pressed but I like this length for my jackets and I'm really pleased with how the aggressive tapering of the legs came out.

    I also find it really funny that a bunch of people here noticed the embroidery on the wall and as far as I can tell, NO ONE in SWD has, yet.

    re: the pink, I did say the sun went to my head... ;)

    I don't love it, but man, is it distinctive!

    I have one of those too; they're the best...

    I just assumed it was a homage to the French Connection UK... :)

    Leaving embroidered profanity aside (a shame to do so, but still), there's a more general potential discussion point about MC attitude here if the joke has a kernel of truth. What is the optimum level of obsessionality about the minutiae of fit/detail? Perfection is obviously impossible, so how much should one strive to get close to it? How do you measure it, and who are you really trying to please at that stage? How much of the potential viewing audience's opinion are you interested in? If it's about a general audience, you only need modestly well-fitting things to appear well-dressed by comparison to the lower average. Is it really just about satisying yourself beyond this point?

    Better question - why do you spam the forums so much? The majority of your posts are gibberish.
