A couple quick questions and sorry for the photos, I had some random stranger take them for me with my phone. One, does anyone have any idea what's going on here with the folds in the crotch? And two, what should I be telling my tailor to look for when cleaning up the back. I'm going to be dropping them off later this week, so thought I'd get some feedback first. Could the seat be taken in, along with the fork (and is that what's causing the weird folds of fabric...
Crooked, meaning like a concave shoulder (shoulders that are pitched forward - if that makes sense)?
Quick question with no pics, but hopefully I can describe it. If not, I can grab some photos later. Anyway, what causes the skirt on the sides of a jacket to buckle or fold outward instead of adhering to the sides of the hips?

I was trying to compartmentalize the different parts of the jacket without considering how they relate to other parts like the shoulders and chest.I'm new at this, having been a SW&D guy so I'm trying to...
I thought it was called a Neapolitan shoulder, as in Italian-inspired.
I don't think I've made myself clear so I'll try again because it was a very busy day for me while I posted the photos and I'm wondering if, due to said busyness, that the one critical detail I left out will put this all into context.I am about to purchase another bespoke suit. The try-on in the photo was just to see if I would fall between a 42 and a 44 since the last suit was purchased last year and I'm in the process of dropping some weight. I haven't purchased the 42...
