If I crop the image and leave only the top part, the shape and location of the armscye still bothers me. I don't know how to explain it, that's the problem. Perhaps I could say it looks too "Richard Anderson", which is a type of cut I hate with a passion.
The way too open quarters are not just the result of being open per-se, but also of a long front balance (which also causes the X at the buttoning point). But yes, future commissions, whoever makes them, will have that fixed.
Anyways, these MTM jackets, while not overly expensive, are probably a waste of money - they cost more than RTW and I'm still not happy. Might just get a couple decent fitting RTW jackets so I have something to wear this summer (my usual RTW brand is just €200 per jacket), then start saving for Steed or NSM. I'll be happier in the long run, and for some reason I keep coming to the same conclusion.
