    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    want to compliment you on the lapels and the high gorge, which I like. But from the other shots- (could be the angle) IMO the shoulders don't suit you as well as a natural would- hell, I don't think pagodas suit anyone much unless they are tailored really well.


    AAS that jacket doesn't give u enough contrast IMO .... your micro check gray ( right) would be a better look, although that for a fit that casual even better sans tie and with a slimmer watch. Apart from that I really like it.

    Thanks for the kind words. This is one of three non-navy summer jackets I own. The micro houndstooth resolves to grey, but it's navy and cream which was off limits for the challenge.

    The jacket isn't pagoda (Formosa?), it's just shoulder extension. I think natural shoulders won't work well on his build since he has narrow shoulders and he should get structured jackets. To be honest soft shoulders really isn't for a lot of people and many will be better served with an armored English cut.

    Quite true. And the same can be said for many other tailoring features. It takes knowledge and discipline to reject the cuts and cloth that don't work with your physique and skin tone, particularly when you find them attractive. And the errors made from the sternum on up (the area visible when seated at table or desk) are the most egregious because that is where most observers will be focusing their attention most of the time.


    Rant over..... :satisfied:

    As far as I can tell from that pic, that jacket has classic roped shoulders. But it looks like @jungleroller has sloping shoulders, so his jacket doesn't quite follow his shoulder line and that makes for the faux pagoda look.

    The shoulder is spalla cadente morbida (natural). It should settle over time...per gdl203.

    A summer wedding a while ago. I insisted on wearing my cream cotton suit, although it would fit a lot better after shedding five pounds (and prior to the wedding dinner and champagnes) :embar:
