I never worked for any high end clothier, just sold clothes part time briefly many years ago in college, but I noticed then that pretty much every man described themselves as broad shouldered when asking about fit. Put somebody in a suit and sometimes they would insist on going a size up to make up for their "broad shoulders." Could this be a reason why a lot of people seem to be swimming inside their jackets? Salesmen trying to satisfy their customers' ego and acquiescing to their requests? Many of them were size 40 and below. I also noticed on a lot of fit questions posted here, the posters would describe themselves as broad shouldered. Does any man actually ever describe himself as having completely normal shoulders, or narrow shoulders? I've always wondered this.
