Jox, I have to agree. We as customers should demand more. I see papery wrinkles on shoes that sell for enough, that they should not be there. It is totally unacceptable and unfortunately it is not limited to AE.
You and I look the same in an entirely natural shoulder suit, I think. I have found that I must have just a tiny bit of pad; otherwise, I get that big slope, as is showing in your picture. Additionally, the shoulders are too big. Here is the thing on shoulders. You can have them fixed, but it must be done by a tailor with significant actual talent. Some guys just draw the line at shoulders, and I can't blame them. I have done it twice. Once it worked, once it did not. One...
