Roped
The #menswear community currently has a serious crush on the lightly or un-padded shoulders that are typical of Neapolitan tailoring. However, the fact is that it is a silhouette that requires a rather particular body type to be really flattering. People, like me, that are not very broad-shouldered are really not well-suited to wear un-padded jackets. On the other hand, a jacket with some structure to the shoulders can do wonders for the overall silhouette. The vintage Cifonelli DB above has the characteristic roped shoulders that Cifonelli are known for, which helps balance out my height, despite my relative lack of “upper-body definition”. So don’t get caught up in whatever the latest #menswear hype may be without considering what actually flatters you most.

Ring Jacket AMJ03 in deadstock Ermenegildo Zegna cross-ply fabric.
A really interesting shade - not quite purple, not quite red, not quite pink - the variation from the cross-ply and the fabric composition (48% Linen, 38% wool, 14% silk) create a dusty look that’s quite a bit more wearable than it first appears.
With Drake’s accessories and Liverano Shirt.
