Very nice, but then I'm a big fan of horizontal shoulders.
I would say I have quite sloped shoulders and the Formosa RTW shoulders sit fine on me:
Looks good, Six!
Those loafers have aged very well...great color!
Given I have the same SC I always enjoy seeing how you use it in a combo. For me, the vibe of these shoes with that SC don't jive.
^ I was going to say the same. The boots are great but seem a bit out of place with the rest of the fit.
Thanks, @jcmeyer ! I'm pretty happy with the fit of this one.
It would seem that the un/lightly structured Formosa shoulder conforms to the shape of the body underneath it. Whoda thunk it?
(Not Formosa today.)
^^^ What square?
Very, very nice, @Mr. Six
Who made the tie?
Square is Rubi's Villa Lucia. http://www.exquisitetrimmings.com/p...-Squares/Black-Villa-Lucia-Pocket-Square.html
Tie is Bigi via NMWA. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/inde...ilk-tie-light-blue-and-white-neat-motifs.html
I find myself wearing Rubi squares more often than not with suits these days. "Versatile" gets thrown around a lot, but the Rubi squares are in the sense that they can be combined with just about anything.
Love the roping.
I like the gorge on this coat. Seems to be a tiny bit lower than the middle-of-the-road gorge height. I dig it. The stuff nowadays is too high, honestly.
Is the shoulder seam closest to the viewer dimpled because of dry cleaning? or steaming?
It's a Neapolitan shoulder called Spalla Camica. This might explain a bit: http://nomanwalksalone.tumblr.com/post/57157189444/quick-study-in-neapolitan-shoulders-when
