I think number 2 will withstand the test of time. I’m not absolutely opposed to number 1. I know the current trend is for a higher gorge, almost seeming atop the shoulder, but #1 isn’t terrible.
As someone who is not tall (5’7”) a gorge like #1 seems proportionate to me.
The canvas layer doesn’t add bulk. Also, I’d argue that it’s just as necessary and essential to a double breasted jacket, perhaps even more important though someone with more technical knowledge may disagree, due to the more complex geometry and the need for proper drape.
Hey there again.
The Zegna jacket is an older model. My only concern with it is that it appears as though the lapels have been pressed flat. The fact that the top button is fastened doesn’t help in seeing the roll of the lapels.
We already discussed the HF. Same model, different jacket it...
