    See how there isn't a smooth drop from the shoulder down the arm?

    I'll say this: I cannot wait until you get your first perfectly fitting suit. I bet you freak out and go all Noodlely on us.

    Edit: Adding this for emphasis. Seriously. You'll flip out. It's going to be amazing to watch.

    Well, your combinations and the items you purchase have improved so immensely, and I'd sort of assumed you knew about the fit issue.

    I agree. The jacket is just a little too small all over. You'll get there, Rudals. You still probably look far better than anyone you work with.

    ^
    YES.
    If I look worse than people who wear JosABanks then we have a serious problem.

    Someone tell me what I need to tell the tailor in order to get this shoulder issue fixed. He saw this jacket but did not say much.

    I think the shoulder is one of the trickiest things to alter. If its not right out of the box not sure there's much a tailor can do, at least not without incurring a fairly hefty cost. I'd guess most tailors want nothing to do with this kind of work.

    You've sold me on that Vanda tie vs. Hober I think. I've been eyeing those since you posted it. Vanda is more expensive but I think has a nicer "plum" color.... @GMMcLif Cleav doesn't pick up whatever tie you were thinking of getting rid of, shoot me a pic and lmk I might be interested.

    Rudals...actually, look at the shoulders of the SS coats you had on in the other thread and compare with the one above. Whatever else you say about those (I gave you some comments and suggestions in that thread about what to look for when a suit doesn't fit), look at the difference from the point of the shoulder down the outline line of the arm between the SS's and your Zegna (?)...see a difference?

    Maybe it's just your pose. I think you posted this photo in tailor's thread and I was shocked Despos did not mention it or that Fields did not either. It's not desirable, but maybe in real life, it isn't there, just when you tighten up in your pose. Is that true?

    ....just before we go nuts on the shoulders, we are certain that it isn't the angle of the camera, right?
