Shoulder pads

Shoulder padding is a fairly controversial subject, but the consensus in the US seems to be "less is more". There is also a misconception that all RTW makes use way too much padding; this is occasionally true- this is a pad from a well-known and loved brand


I prefer something softer and lighter. This is the thickest of the pads that I use in my RTW clothing.


You don't have to go all the way to Naples to get a soft shoulder.

Jeffery, I really appreciated your Threads article. It is so rare to find something related to tailoring for men.

On another note, is there an internet source that sells the Helsa pads?

what's the number of the pad?
I have a sample in black that say 764597, which looks very similar to the one in your last picture.

SG- all my pads are made to my design and specification so while there may be similar pads around, they wouldn't be exactly those and wouldn't have our article numbers on them.

Hi Kyle, and thank you! The editors finally sent me a couple of copies of the magazine, thanks. I don't think Helsa are available at retail, only wholesale to the industry.
