    Jumped on the JCF wool blend tweed elbow patch blazer Joe has kept recommending for over a year. Finally arrived last week.

    Fits great in the sleeves and waist (probably won't need any tailoring at all), but sadly the shoulders stick out half an inch. Anyone else have a similar problem? What do you guys think?

    Pardon the mirror / bathroom, I was at my folks' place for the holidays when I took the photos.

    It's a bit hard to tell since your arms are up in each photo, emphasizing the problem you describe. A straight on photo with your arms down would be better to assess.

      Sorry, was trying to point out how off it felt. See updated picture after a nice dinner out!

      I mentioned in another thread, it wouldn't bother me so much if my other JCF jackets with softer shoulders didn't fit so well in comparison.... Seems like JCF executed this more structured shoulder much more poorly than the unstructured shoulders. That, or it just doesn't suit my deltoids haha.

        Looks fine to me.

        Outside resting position, shoulders with more padding will show more divots.

          Agreed, looks perfectly fine. This is what most J Crew jackets I've tried on seem to be like. I've actually never encountered something that I would consider a "soft shoulder" at J Crew, but then again, I haven't tried on all of their jackets. If someone could post an example of one that's soft, I'd like to see it.

            This is what the JCF Moleskine sportcoat Joe reviewed looks like on me. Definitely far from "fits like a glove," but definitely could be worse like many have said.

              How do these shoulders fit? These shoulders are a bit smaller than other shirts I wear, curious if it's looking too small. Right shoulder especially tends to creep up my shoulder a bit more than the left.

                Looks exactly right to me.

                  I am having a hard time figuring out proper fit for a shirt collar. The rule of being able to get no more than two fingers between collar and neck is super inaccurate due to compliance of skin and soft tissues.

                  These are photos of a MTM shirt I got. Does it look too loose? I anticipate a bit of shrinkage similar to what I have seen in my other shirts.

                  One the the photos has me leaning my head forward and to the left, demonstrating a significant gap.

                  Thoughts?

                    [MENTION=12115]doomx[/MENTION] - Looks fine straight on. Unless the collar is visibly loose without any pulling on your part, you are fine.

                        Recently snagged this on sale. Size is 40 r, tried on a 38r and it was very tight in all areas so I went with the 40. Already plan to have a tailor take in the waist and taper the pants (not really pictured). How's the rest of the fit? It's a bar III from Macy's so it has decently sized shoulder pads

                            [MENTION=16120]beaver[/MENTION] - Looks really good OTR. Nipping the waist a bit will help give it some more shape. The back looks fine though, depending on the tailor, some will mess with the back and some won't. I could live with those sleeves for the cost of the suit. There is some extra fabric at the back of them you could potentially take out but it really depends on how much you want to spend.

                            I would just go with the waist for now.

                              [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] - Appreciate it. I prefer smaller shoulder pads so these take a little getting used to but other than that I enjoy the fit. The sleeves on my shirt are a tad long (laundry day) so I plan not touch the jacket sleeves. Good to see a consensus on just getting the waist done

                                Man that is a really nice overall fit for OTR. Feeling pretty jealous. A good OTR fit is a pipe dream for me.
