    I totally agree with you with regards to the overcoat. Actually, the overcoat is going back - so it can be altered. The right shoulder especially can look weird at times !

    Possibly a little tight in the chest, yes, but disagree about the shoulders - they look great. I think narrow shoulder lines are a curse that came with tiny lapels.

    So far I'm at one, but who knows! :smarmy:
    This is always difficult to judge from one, probably not ideal, photo. But here it looks like your shoulders are more sloped than the jacket accounts for.

    Extending the shoulder line is a good move; looks much better! If the jacket's really that long, then it's probably just the camera angle that makes it look short. If it feels good to you, I wouldn't worry about it.
    This interesting; please post pictures when he has altered the shoulder. He accommodated it well on the jacket, so curious to see what he will be able to do on the coat (which may be more challenging; not sure).

    I very rarely share pictures on SF, but I thought I'd add a shot of my recent wedding suit. Sorry that I dont have a robo pose available...

    Loro Piana Winter Tasmania 150s for those who are interested, colors are very accurate.

    And in keeping with SF expectations, there was a wardrobe change for the reception:

    Romualdo's in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am very pleased with the results I have gotten from them over the years.

    I think its more difficult to alter the shoulders on the coat. The coat is actually made, so I can have a jacket beneath it, which I don't have on the picture i posted ! Therefor the shoulders will automatical follow the line if the jacket beneath and not my shoulders, when wearing a jacket. I stressed the point of not looking totally square when wearing the coat - when I commissioned the work - but I'm not happy with the right shoulder, as it drops more than the left. But I'll post a picture of the coat, while wearing a jacket beneath.

    On subject of green jackets - someone with a nordic complexity like @Sander and myself has a lot of use for green jackets. There are so many great shades of green too. I have four green SC:s and one green suit and they are all in my favourite section of my wardrobe.
