The Benefit Of A Strong Shoulder

What struck me about the suit on this very nice gentleman ,visiting from New Orleans, was how well the roped shoulder on his jacket worked to give the impression of a more narrow waist. This gentleman really was as round as a ball but by buying a good suit (Isaia) in a sturdy fabric and spending the money to have it expertly altered he has succeeded in cutting a dashing figure.

strong, build-up shoulder is the new 'unpadded'. just about time for the change of fetish...

OH yes! Suits must be tailored. Sometimes having it done is cheap (just go china town...hint hint)

Could you email that photo to Alan Flusser? Photos published recently in a well-regarded fashion blog indicate he could use some help dressing for his shape ...

neopolitan cut has always been little or no padding at all.

Yes, good fitting. Neverthelesse, the trousers are a bit too wide. But look a the shoes - famous.

I like the unpadded shoulders. Just like a shirt.

I'll bet he got that suit at George Bass here in NOLA - they do Isaia RTW. They also sell Edward Green shoes and Borelli shirts.

Hmmm... payday was yesterday!

I like the trousers as they are--they balance out his top half perfectly. Any narrower and it would become disproportional.

Why are brown dress shoes getting lighter and lighter. This guy's shoe is not too light, but I have been seeing very light tan lately with Navy.

Great photo. Would love to see more pictures of how clothes can help non-models (or even better, unattractive people) look their best.

the wide and straight cut trousers are designed for the american market. it always very difficult to convince conservate american men to make a change. i'm really happy to see thome browne is trying to change that attitude by bringing pegged and narrow trousers to the market. i hope there will be other designers follow tb's lead or buyers take a chance of bringing multiple cuts or styles of trousers sold in europe. but i think it's the economics (demand vs supply) that will drive the decision making of the designers and buyers. also i don't think thome browne does not have strenght or influence to change the attitude of american men. let's just hope i'm wrong.

Wonderful looking suit. The tailoring definitely "slims" him down.


Blogger Kathleen... said ... (5:17 PM) : 

But, oh dear.....the shoes??

He has large legs and probably has some big calves. The wider profile of his trouser leg balances that out nicely with his top half.
