Shoulder pads - a good thing?
Is there ever a reason?

Or should they always be cut out of any garment that has them?

Yes, most men would look silly wearing an unpadded suit. That's why Armani looks so cack.

I know I hate them, even for work. I don't need any more bulk/structure added to my figure.

^ maybe she's talking about vintage stuff?

I cut the shoulder pads out of everything, they just look ridiculous.

^ me too. The first thing I do if I acquire anything with shoulder pads is to rip them off.

Thanks. It is a vintage houndstooth jacket and I have been wanting to rip out the shoulderpads since I got it but I wanted to be sure I wouldn't regret it.

Yes. But I've seen them mostly in women's business suits. I take the jackets to a tailor to get them removed because they are inside the lining.

Agree with posts above; Have them altered/tailored to get them removed...
I wonder if it's just so the garmet will have more 'structure' when on the rack (or maybe it's an option for shoulder-less people?).

Shoulder pads look ridiculous in clothes when I wear them, especially when I have to raise your arms!

hahaha I wear mine all the TIME.
partly to spite people who hate them and partly cause they look good and I'm young and can get away with it damnit.

I have this vintage pink velvet jacket that's seriousely cool with major shoulder pads.

i have always thought shoulder pads would be good for people who have narrow shoulders? i haven't worn garments with shoulder pads yet but i i am quite surprise to know that shoulder pads are so hated by everyone. hmm...what actually happens when you raise your arms?

even most new jackets have little shoulder pads because it gives more shape to your shoulders and the fabric doesn't fall as nicely without them.

I'm having an 80s obsession at the moment and I was thinking of getting something with big shoulder pads..
