Out of curiosity, what is it you dislike?
Seconding the original poster.

I have an MTO Neapolitan and it doesn't really work for me. I feel like the broad shoulders, lower gorge, and convex lapel all have a tendency to make a person look squatter and wider, which isn't good for me.

But I usually like how others look in the cut.

A separate issue is that "Neapolitan cut" isn't really an accurate name. Isn't it more of a riff on the NMWA Eidos cut, which is in turn a riff on the Liverano cut? In which case it should technically be called Florentine?

It's a very interesting cut indeed, but I don't think I'll ever like it.

It's definitely an interesting cut, and I can see how a lot of people can make it fit their style, but I tend to like the more English, and some American types of tailoring.

Ah. I generally like the Neapolitan stuff a lot but am not a fan of the S&M take. Not a knock on S&M though... I think I’d look just as awkward if I was wearing a Liverano jacket.

Juicy C23 collar from S&M Insta

Got mine yesterday and wore today, nice roll.

@spiermackay now that we have a lot of wide spread BDs, will there ever be a narrow-er spread button down option?

something like these?

3 7/16" and 3 5/16" respectively for those collars up there.
Would you be kind enough to provide picture with a blazer and another one with open collar? Can be great to grab interest;)

I have the check moon tweed from last season and I love it. My only complaint is that maybe because of the fabric being so thick it doesn’t drape so well especially by the vents. I know it’s tweed and it’s supposed to be thick but I have another donegal jacket that just drapes better and doesn’t feel so “spongy”. I hope these new tweed jackets drape better.
That's Moons standard tweed. The Merino is much denser but has a thinner feel.
