Perhaps it's the angle (I'm leaning up against the wall) or perhaps I just like higher gorges. I've never really noticed...this seems on par with a lot of my other jackets, so I guess I just like high gorges.
Ninja edit: If you're talking about the buttoning point, it's because I'm leaning back. Though in general, I do like high buttoning points (and 3 button jackets). As far as buttons are concerned, the only rule that I try to follow is making sure the bottom button is at the waistline.
