Also, I was wrong about the Breanish. It's ST6.
And sorry the pics are so bad. I was testing the limits of my girlfriend's patience by asking her to take these. I might try to take better ones. I think the camera focused on the rug not my shoulder.
Thanks! I have a DB Fresco jacket and notice that issue on occassion, but it doesn't really bother me. I'll probaly get a darker color ermazine lining if I get a Fresco odd jacket next year.
Definitely worth it to do a full fitting at Chan if you're back in HK. Always works out very well.

My Chan shoulders are straight as well and hang very nice and snug on my neck. I plan on speaking with Patrick about the pros and cons of an angled shoulder for my pattern next time I see him more out of curiosity than anything. I'm not too concerned either way.
