Pls critique my 1st bespoke suit - Page 4

Asian figure is shaped differently than others so Asian tailors make the canvass/chest shape differently. More shape in the canvass makes the jacket conform to your body better and helps the lapels lay against the chest better.
This is based on experience with Korean tailors and their methods.

I am headed there today and regretfully will be making a solo expedition. Alas.

hmm this is just speculation, but can't an issue like that be fixed with slightly thicker padding on one side? bespoke should be able to conceal flaws with an individual's physique right?

Yes; this is what one of my tailors does... He adds a bit more wadding to one shoulder rather than the other to create the appearance of evenness. However, I think it's a matter of aesthetics and personal preferences... Some prefer to have natural shoulders without any apparent corrections, others prefer the symmetry. There's been an interesting discussion of this on LL:

It looks perfect. Don't change a thing and get it properly pressed (not steamed) and wear it well (get you money's worth).

Very nice suit. The center vent is just right. The color and fabric are exquisite. I wonder if your tailor ever travels to the US..

The jacket seriously needs to be pressed but overall is a decent fit.

side vent would make it more perfect.
very nice fit for first time try.
you would get the perfect one in near future.

For a recent fitting of my first bespoke suit, my tailor discouraged me from getting side vents. I'm thin with an athletic build, and he felt it would be difficult to have my jacket tapered as I want without the side vents flaring out.

On the issue of having one shoulder lower than the other, I have an off the rack suit that was corrected for this by the shop's tailors. Just a little padding under the lower shoulder, and the sleeve length tweaked so they are both the same length after the modification. At the same time they added a little in the front of the collarbone to fill in a little hollow that I have.

The guy doing the fitting mentioned that they adjust 90%+ of suits they sell for a dropped shoulder (usually on the primary writing hand side).
