Jimmy Stewart is my favorite style icon. I've got a similar tall, lanky physique, and broad shoulders. Something I've noticed about him, and others, too, of course, are the insanely wide shoulder pads his suits had. I know it was the style post war, but many of these suits wouldn't pass the "lean against a wall" test. I've got some suits with similar cuts, but I'm always a bit self conscious to wear them, as I know they would be construed as ill fitting by today's standards. So, if you're going for a post war look, would it be reasonably safe to wear a suit with extra wide shoulders? Was it a product of the time, or did folks like Jimmy just wear suits that were too big?
