Shoulder protrusion on sport coat - normal or ill fitted??

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Please note, the blazer itself is irrelevant. It's American Eagle size XS with shoulder measured 17.5" seam to seam. What I would like to get out of this is an idea of how blazer/coat should fit me. I havent for the longest time and I wanna clear this up.

Looking at this, it's clear there are protrusion where the shoulder ends. In respect to the rest of the fit, is this normal or result of ill fitting?

The sleeves are a bit long, yes. That can easily be fixed, so dont mind it. However, overall is this a fitting blazer for my statue?? It just feels generous somehow and I dont know if that's a normal thing, or bad thing. I have had horrible experience with blazerS that sized XS but came fitting like 2 sizes higher before, so this time I wanna make sure I get it right.

 

Thanks

 

More shoulders

can you not set the camera on some steady surface and use a timer?

why take these crappy mirror reflections?

With your arm elevated to hold the camera it just screws up any evaluation of fit.

That would have been smarter. Unfortunately, these were the last of my battery. Waiting on a new charger now, otherwise I'd reconcile this.

Could really use some suggestions.

It's tough to determine when you're standing there with your arm(s) raised, but if you have that same problem when you stand erect, then the shoulders are a bit too wide.

Yes, the shoulders on the jacket are too wide. The shoulder pads are extending past the muscle of your upper arm, creating a "cave in" under the pad. I have the same issue. Look for a narrower shoulder or less padding. 17.5" is pretty wide on an XS, but is fairly typical on jackets for the American market.

Shoulder's aren't too wide. They're too narrow.

Interesting, so the divots are result of my shoulder too narrow?? If so, is there a way to alleviate this?? Would working out with emphasize on increasing the width be appropriate for this??

 

 

I'll try to get better shoulder shot w/ the phone later.

The sleeve shape/size and the armhole shape/size aren't in sync. The sleeve has to be trimmed and recut to fit the armhole. You need a skilled person to do this correctly. May not be worth the cost and effort.
