What does that mean? Cuffs are not appropriate on any type of semi formal or formal wear. It is historically incorrect.
See how low on the back the horizontal wrinkle is. It is caused by tension between the shoulder blades. The left blade is bigger than the right blade that's why you see the slight diagonal pulling from the waist to the more  prominent left blade. The left side pulls in a different way than the right. Your right shoulder is almost 3/4" lower than the left but you are also low at the neck point on the right side about 1/4". That's why the horizontal roll between the blades...
[[SPOILER]] First jacket,  the roll on the back is from prominent shoulder blades. Lowering the collar or raising the back, whatever you want to call it, will be a mistake and make other issues that may not be reverseable. The shoulder and back need to be "worked" for prominent blades. You don't want to remove length over your blades you want to work in fullness. The second jacket is too big in every way including too long. If you can't return it, try to sell it before you...
Get the opinion of whoever will fix the jacket. if you don't have someone skilled enough to fix it, don't buy it. If you have to tell the tailor what is wrong and what needs to be done, they probably aren't the one that will make the alteration properly
Understand where you are coming from. Have been interviewed and written about and the overwhelming majority write from their own understanding of what I say and miss the point or embellish things in an off putting way. What they write misrepresents or is just plain wrong of what I had said. If I was a writer I would have the interviewee read the article before it goes to press.It hasn't all been that bad and have been interviewed by a couple of intelligent writers but...
Has more to do with how it effects your skin tone. What are the gold tones in the cloth? Does your skin look healthy or pale against the cloth?   If you wear the suit with a white shirt as pictured it could be problematic. The lightest shirt should be cream or ecru. Shirt color will help or distract from the effect of the cloth color.

Could not disagree with this more! Most of the expression of a jacket or trouser is the craftsmanship and technique. This is what brings the cutting to life. If you cut two suits  and ran them thru two different production processes you would see two different garments. Not only would they look different but they would feel different to the person wearing the garment. Many of the shoulder or back fitting issues in the tailor's thread could be remedied by better sewing and...
Doesn't look like bubbling in this picture. Looks like the inside pocket was folded in weird way or something wasn't flat in the lining and made an impression in the cloth when pressed. What has been tried to rectify the impression?
OTC, where do you find this brand in Chicago?  Have seen them at Quality Meats but only individual sized packages, not larger bags. Can get them in Dallas but don't where to get them in Chicago
