You are not only low at the shoulder point (where the shoulder meets sleeve) you are low at the neck point as well. Shoulder needs to be adjusted at the neck. What you really need is more length added at the shoulder on the left side.
Just diagnosed this in the tailor fit thread for someone else.
When you unbutton the jacket does the button on the right front drop lower than the buttonhole on the left front?
Thanks for the reply! FYI Chris I was the guy who called you in Dallas the other day to schedule an appointment - I'll probably wait till things clear up for you towards the end of the year. Just moved out to Dallas about 2 months ago.
I'm seeing Patrick from Chan next week in Washington DC, flying out their specifically to get this fixed. I will take a picture when I get home, but the uneveness of the button/buttonhole was one of the problems we were trying to fix out the gate - there was some tugging there due to that. I believe it's more or less fixed but will double check tonight.
What should I ask Patrick to do in my meeting next week?
For convenience here are the pics of the jacket pre-alteration
when I first got it. If anything, I am slimmer than I was when I received these. The trousers have gotten better and the jacket worse..
