hi

should your side deltoid touch your sleeve (at the point where your sleeve attached to the shoulder)?

thanks

This sounds like a question for the body consciousness forum. When I have deltoids, they usually clear up if I significantly increase my fiber intake.

I prefer the shoulder of the suit to be the widest point, not my arm behind the fabric as you describe. If your arm and the shoulder pad create a noticeable angle, the suit doesn't fit.

Anyone have a fix for this?

I think it's okay as long as the fabric is not taut or bulging out past the shoulder seam.

I hope I'm simply not getting your humour.

Deltoid = shoulder muscle. Sounds to me like you're referring to hemorrhoids.

You are correct. If you pose a question here, chances are that %50 or more of the answers to the question you posed will be answers that are between %75 and %100 sarcastic and %25 to %0 serious.

The other %50 of the answers to the questions you posed that I did not mention in the first paragraph will be %75 to %100 serious and %25 to %0 sarcastic.

Yeeeeeah, that was a joke. I thought I'd bump your thread before no one answered it. And I wasn't so sure what you meant by deltoid. Your shoulder muscles should not cause rippling or wrinkling in the top outer sleeve. If you have big pipes (I mean muscles in your arms), esp. rel. to your chest width, you should be careful if you are buying jackets that fit tight in the chest and body.

That sounds remarkably like another thread here ... not 100% like and 0% dislike but close to 85% like and 15% dislike ... and I apologise ...

lest i come across as implying that i am working to be another brock lesnar, the reason i asked is because i am thinking if i want to get my tailor to make the next suit's shoulders narrower.
