Bumping an old thread to enable those who use search. For anyone considering Lamlana, I really like it. It's more texturally complex than moonbeam and the colors are much more varied. My jacket is in the following:
I think it's just an element of house style.

Here is another picture of the same suit that shows the poof: And here is another suit altogether that shows the poof: Maybe it only happens with certain movements but I want to like the way my suit looks even when I'm not standing still.
