    On my Sidekick w/ it's tiny little screen, so I may be wrong here:
    Whodini- suit looks really nice
    Drizzt- the shoulders on that jacket look perfect to me
    Socal- I think your response was justified considering the comments that were made. My main critique is that imo you need to drop 10+pds. and lose 2 jacket sizes to wear those outfits better. They are definitely not lacking creativity.

    I think I will let it out about 1-2" in the waist and fix the sleeves and it will be fine. Which particular elements are you referring to? The shoulder fit is absolutely perfect. The suit is a little bit rumpled, I just took it out of a box and took pictures.

    These pictures look better than the previous one where the suit seemed to pull everywhere. Still these shoulders look way off IMO. Not sure if it's only the fit or if they in major need of a good press, but the shape is bumpy, not smooth at all. I also don't think that high gorge/wide lapel combination is working for you and your V shaped torso. As if you needed to emphasize even more your wide shoulders vs. small waist... I know you're generally pretty dismissive of comments on your pictures so feel free to dismiss mine as well but my sense is that your body would be much better off with a very natural shoulder (avoid roping at all cost), a thinner lapel with an average gorge height and (especially) a 2 button or 3-roll-2 stance. This would elongate the upper body shape rather than focalize attention on the extreme V and wide shoulders. JMO of course

    I think it's probably just the angle and the stance more than anything. And it's probably only bumpy because he was taking a picture and wasn't quite ready for the camera. The high gorge is fine really, again it's just the angle of the picture.

    You didn't strike a nerve, but I'm sure more than a few of us chuckled. Tailored clothing done right is as rare as streetwear done right. Give it a try and we'll let you know how you do [​IMG]

    I agree that the gorge is slightly high, I'm not sure that I agree with the fact that it accentuates the V. From the picture, it appears fairly proportional to me, but that's just my opinion. Even if it does, I'm not sure that's a bad thing. As far as the shoulders go, they are definitely roped, but there is no padding at all. This, I feel, creates more shoulder slope than I find optimal but I'm not sure this isn't a bad counterpoint to my other, more structured, suits. In any case, I'm going to alter the suit, have it pressed, and will welcome comments after the alteraions are done. I'm probably going to let the waist out about 1-2" and the sleeves down 1". You would probably prefer the Oxxford suit I posted a few posts below this one on this page given the criteria you posted. It has thinner lapels, and lower gorge, with less roping. That said, I think once the Belvest is altered it will be much more flattering on me. Different strokes, I guess. I think that suit is nice and conservative and good for the dinner meeting I had today with older clients, but I don't think it's particularly flattering or stylish.

    Granted I know very little about suits/blazers but I still think that this jacket has a more flattering shoulder than drizzt's normal jackets.

    Casual (afternoon): Pure Venom Sugar Cane Zara [​IMG] I'm really not too fond of the fit of these Okis. I just don't think it's very flattering. Perhaps it's because of the high rise, I dunno. Dinner: Charvet Ben Silver Oxxford Paul Smith [​IMG]
