What should be the ideal depth of shoulders? In most of the shirts, I find it to be short, about 3 inches. I request my tailor to make it at least 5 inches so that the shoulder falls squarely on the shoulder blades.
Especially when the shirt does not have epaulettes or darts, a fitting shoulder...
I plan to buy J.Crew's peacoat. I am slim around the waist, and so the coat is not quite body following. I was wondering if I could get darts sewn in.
(I'm asking this question purely from an aesthetic point of view - nevermind if sailors 100 years ago wore them like sacks).
