Should have it back next weekend and can see what it looks like then.

I do have a low shoulder, but it's actually my left shoulder (I used to carry a messenger pack, which was slung on my right...
Specifically, is it something about the tailoring of this suit jacket that makes it look blocky, or is it just my body shape? Past suits that I have worn have had more padded shoulders, I think, so this is my first experience with a jacket that shows the significant sloping that I have. Is this how it is supposed to look? Is it possible to get a slimmer look out of it? Just had this made from Baron Lee in Hong Kong. Overall I find the fit to be good and comfortable....
