I don't think the sleeves hang badly at all. Viewed front on, they are better than most posted here. No dimples or divots, and a nice gentle convex curve from shoulder point to wrist. However, viewed from the side, it becomes apparent there may be a pitch issue. There is some minor bunching, but nothing that can't be fixed easily.
I don't see what's so bad about the collar, either. There is no gap to speak of. However, perhaps both jacket and shirt collar could stand to be taller. Yes, there is some roll behind the collar, but that is a seperate issue, minor, and easy to fix.
The shoulder shape is certainly more square than I personally prefer, but by no means wrong. It's interesting that you note it looks as if the wearer/jacket is hanging on a hanger. To me, that actually captures a positive aspect of the suit. Too often, suits posted on the forum look as if they are gripping the wearer all over his body. That is not a good thing. Sleeves should
look like they are hanging from the shoulder points.
Nothing wrong with single vents. Again, I don't personally prefer them, but they don't make the suit better or worse in any objective way.
I don't see a lapel issue. Perhaps I'm just not attuned to what you're looking at, but the only sense I understand "life" in a lapel is in the way it rolls. Here, the roll is not particularly broad, but it is not bad or wrong, either. Most RTW at the same price point will struggle to surpass it.
I don't think one pocket is lower than the other. If you look at his shoulders and hands, you can tell he is leaning ever so slightly toward his right.
The squared quarters are indeed odd. But, again, not unfixable. When re-shaped, the quarters will still be more closed than what is SF-fashionable, but they will not be wrong.
It would take exceedingly little foofing to fix this suit, and it would all be real world doable. You're all nuts!
