Here is a picture to show you what I'm talking about. I drew a line across so you can see. BTW, sorry for the thread hijack

That's pretty weird. It's not the button placement to be sure, because you can see the whole left side of the coat closes at an upward angle. You could see it even better if your picture totally showed the bottom edge of the coat.

Yup, the whole front of the jacket angles sideways because it was clearly cut wrong

Err...that looks bad, but I'm pretty sure that if you were to move that button (the left one in the pic) down/over a smidge, the suit would line up better and probably be serviceable, albeit not perfect.

It seems like the problem is more that the left lapel higher relative to the right lapel, rather than the button being misplaced... although moving the button might quasi-repair the look. It seems that they never really compensated for your shoulders, which slightly pulled the left lapel up, which magnified and then threw the 2nd button position out of alignment. Unless that is some optical illusion....

Actually, would it not be better to move the buttons on the right side DOWN?

Well, first you want to get the pinstripes lined up. Then feel free to move the decorative buttons so they are more even/level. It's really hard to tell from just a picture, but I think you could easily get it looking better than that with a little button-jockeying.

That suit is driving me nuts now.

Dear buttonmovers: no, that won't work. When unbuttoned, the buttons are level. The jacket pulls the button up with it when buttoned.

I know what you mean, but I still think if the buttons were moved a bit it would line up better. It would also necessarily make the waist a bit bigger, and the buttons might not line up with the pockets exactly the same, but it would be less noticeable than the pinstripe problem. What happens if you button the bottom one as well? And anyway, for crying out loud, now I want to bill the dumbasses who made this thing for my time and limited brainpower trying to figure it out. Dammit, get your money back or something.

The shape of the shoulders are very nice though.

I agree, I want to see this done right, because it would be a very nice suit. I like the shoulders and lapels particularly.

Wow...I'm sorry you had so much trouble with MTM.  I do hope they fix it (and given the economic bloc this board represents, they'd be wise to do so). Apart from the MTM quality and service issues Z raised, though, I've seen only style-based criticism of the HF Collection RTW suits thus far--certainly nothing to make me regret buying 3 of them (2 Boardrooms and a Canterbury, plus 2 "Oakbrook" sports jackets), especially at a 90% discount.   The button stance on the suits is perhaps a bit lower than I'd like, but the fronts are at least darted to give some shaping over a straight sack.  I'm not exactly Mr. Svelte, anyway, so a compromise in that area is fine with me.
