Today i was wearing my dad's old Corneliani SC. it's a black flannel peak lapel jacket. I was helping a friend shoot a video and realized that I could hold the boom mic over my head even while wearing the jacket. I've never been able to do any such movement with a jacket before. Is there something unusual about it that allows for this?

I would be fascinated to learn about mobility in jackets and suits.

jeffryd's blog had linked to another blog discussing the construction of fred astaire's suits. I can't find the page, but maybe somebody can link to it. There's trade-offs for super mobility.
