His usage is common though - it has always confused me.

To be clear, the front (outward facing) of your eyeglass lenses are convex. The back (inward, or face-facing) are concave.

In real life, we tend to think of curves as being relative to the physical objects that form them, not as abstract divisions of a two-dimensional space, as in math. In other words, when I see a person's shoulder line, I think of it as the shape of his jacket shoulder, not as the curved line that separates space above and below.

Similarly, we think of hills as convex geological formations, and holes in the ground as concave. Taking the mathematical point of view, where we are simply looking at abstract, divided space, the cave would be convex, not concave, which is perversely ridiculous.

Not the dictionary definition. And, the words themselve give a clue. ConCAVE means a hollowing out, not a hump.

Agreed. Far less pronounced. It helps that the shoulder line is never quite convex to begin with. It is more a straight line that turns slightly concave. Not my personal choice, but I would not object to a shoulder like this if someone else liked it. In fact, it is similar to Whnay's.

Furniture is still on order, so it will be several weeks before the space is propertly kitted out, but just wanted to share what subsequent visitors to NSM can expect.

I also had a few fittings... below a DB in Smith Woolens.

^^^ Now, that one is totally pa-fucked.

yes, thats what I've been saying

Shouldn't the shoulder seam (and as a result, the armscye) be shaped differently to avoid the pa-fucked (twisted) shape on an unpadded jacket like this?

 

I mean, something like this (modified seam to the right):

I should think so, yes.

Part of it is the jacket settling. Fresh out of the box they look more like medtech's second pic. Over time, they look more and more like the first pic. This is part of the reason that Mina pulls down on the jacket during fittings, to help this process get started. Some fabrics take more time to "break in" than others.
