I notice the same thing, I think.
I think it's that gnatty's jackets can sometimes appear "flat" or "angular" (as in being composed of Euclidian plane figures rather than being more three-dimensional). To hyperbolically exaggerate the point beyond reality in the hope of illustrating an underlying less dramatic point, it's as if the jackets are hanging flat on a hanger rather than being curved around your body. I don't think this is a pure effect of photo perspective but probably secondary to your underlying anatomy. The jackets generally obey all the "interweb-laws" of good fit in terms of allowances, lengths, etc, but somehow sometimes lack fullness/expression.
It really would be fascinating to see how a bespoke tailor would adapt to this. I suspect adding some fullness to the chest and carefully thinking about the shoulder lines/degree of padding. I wonder what you'd look like in something like an A&S DB cut, for instance. I suspect it could be quite interesting.
The most recent suit he's posted is one of the best I've seen from him, because it doesn't seem to have this issue around the shoulders/chest (though it's still there a bit in the progression through the waist).
Gnatty has a very nice eye for overall colour-play, fab shoes and has some great other details. Wouldn't want to see him stop posting.
