They look to be too wide in the shoulders (esp the linen). Shoulders may not be sloped enough nor are they cut correctly---especially for the lower right shoulder. The prominent blades are really hard to get around and to some degree, you may always experience distortion in the back from them. Also, the back balance appears to be too long and not correctly adjusted for the swayback/forward hips. The jackets are falling down in the back and hitting your hips. Lots of work...

Vintage globe lapel pin. Tan double monks.   First time iGenting for me...   You'll usually find me in a sewing room somewhere..      
If you're in a store trying on OTR RLPL and Canali and  they fit like that and you're postig pics in this thread, I'd consider a quality MTM suit. THe reason being these OTR suits are not built to your posture. THe other is do you see those diagonal drags/folds of cloth running from your neck down your sides? And the crushing fronts next to the buttoning point in the front? Those are symptoms of very sloped shoulders. The only fix for that is to either pack out the...
FYI.. Tailors are busy peeps Got questions you need answered by folks who uh kinda know what they're actually talking about? Like for real know? PM us. Sorry, but we can't prevent old anyone from posting old whatever they old want up in here.
Despite the horrible picture position (I've addressed this too many times to be nice about it), looks like front balance is too short.
