Srly. The sleeves are wrinkled! Wait, that guy is not standing like a robot and there is a rumple in the jacket! NO STYLE. NO STYLE. FIT IS OFF!!

Other than some minor tweaks on the right jacket it looks pretty good too.
Personally, i feel that the jacket on the right, while still soft, makes...
Don't know why I didn't see this thread earlier.
I think the right looks better, particularly with the slightly wider shoulders. But both look good overall. I'm going to just take a guess and say left if Chan while right is Mina.

Not really, and I actually think it is a huge issue. Hopefully it's an easy enough fix for OP's tailor, but I find it quite surprising how many MTM and bespoke jackets (including my Chans) have these divot problems while a well-fitting RTW can easily avoid this problem.
Mac - your pagoda shoulders are a stylistic choice, and it is not clear if you are indicating this is RTW (which you claim looks better than the OP's jacket) or bespoke. But the shoulders do not have to follow a straight line, particularly if they are lightly padded. Besides, the style of your jacket looks completely different than the OPs.

Pics or it ain't true.
Aside from the acknowledged problem with the upper-arm sleeves, what is so terrible about the shoulders? The shoulder lines themselves look good, although I do believe the overall look is diminished by the divoting of the sleeves, which should be addressed.
Something is funky with the waist on your right side. The indentations in your upper sleeve (i.e., "divots") need to be addressed, and that may or may not be corrected by "loosening" the sleeve. Breast pocket placement seems kind of high.
Edit: Buttoning point looks good as it appears to be at your natural waist. Plus, it would put the bottom button even lower than your pant waist line.
