    I actually think that the Barena jacket suits you better than the other two examples. I like big heads, I have one myself, and really like the narrow shoulders of the 1910s and 20s.

    Small-headed people scare me. (true)

    I think that first jacket looks better on you. It makes you look younger for lack of a better term.

    I'm really not feeling the shirt collars here. The collar on the green shirt is too small. It doesn't sit under your jacket collar and it doesn't look proportional with the tie knot. These are both my personal preferences. The collar on the white shirt is all curled up. [​IMG] Just saying.

    Thank you! The jacket and tie are both from Australian labels - Herringbone Sydney and Henry Carter.


    Too kind.

    It's a very good observation I do prefer the shoulders to have a slight extension to counter my wider hips. The two coats are made by different tailors, you are correct the first one do have slight padding and extension while the suit jacket has zero padding at all. It's a learning curve looking for what works for your body type. I agreed entirely it's a expensive lessons learned.
