    White is bold; cream, less so, and by a relatively large margin. Tan is subdued.

    @Kent Wang I like it. A lot.

    I'm wearing the KW Carta Marina square today, incidently. Just a quick hotel snap though, I'm in Atlanta for professional society meetings.

    Yes, I meant the slope of the shoulder. And I understand it's sitting on a mannequin, but the jacket falls very cleanly on those "shoulders" which have all the slope of Nebraska, haha. The only reason I even noticed is because I have odd shoulders to fit--sloped, forward set, with pitch issues. This is the main reason I decided to go bespoke, incidentally.

    By the way, that's not meant to be a knock. I find your Formosa stuff to be universally lovely, and my Dents gloves were a godsend this past winter.

    No offense taken at all, but I believe your eye may be tricked by the mannequin's very straight shoulders. There's nothing in the construction of the shoulder line itself that would create a horizontal slope. On the more formal jackets, when we opt for the spalla cadente morbida (and not spalla camicia), there's a bit of extension with a slight padding to support it, so you do see the shoulder expression being less round and more angular. But I don't think there's any horizontality to speak of in the actual construction of the shoulder line.

    @GuidoWongolini pretty awesome!
    @justinkapur great SC!

    And today's outfit. Curiously the jacket's sleeves look long whereas they're not and the shirt is normally seen.

    Same coat as Justin's but a different way of wearing it. Brown/cream shepherd's check with gold/navy grenadine.

    For the Formosa shoulder discussion. This is a new jacket straight out of the box. Perhaps helpful though because of the robo pose
