I was at Seize sur Vingt the other day and could not stop admiring the great soft shoulder jackets that they do.
As you see in the photo – the two jackets on the right are the typical American shoulder jackets but the two on the left are the soft shoulder jackets, they almost look like the shoulder of a shirt and can be as comfortable.
This type of shoulder is not exclusive to Seize sur Vingt but they they certainly offer one of the best versions of it in New York.
Notice the little puckering at the sleeve cap – the actual sleeve piece is bigger than the opening of the armhole so the extra fabric has to be eased into the space. The tailor tries to easy most of the extra fabric into the top of the sleeve cap so as to give your shoulder a little extra room.
that is the kind of jacket that was made to travel in.
