I went and checked it out again, and I think the skew due to the flap I mentioned and the angle of the picture does have something to do with it, but this jacket does have quite a bit of waist suppression compared to the traditional sack suit. It's possible it's designed to be worn unbuttoned more of the time, but I actually don't mind the suppression so much, I'll post a picture in a few minutes to illustrate what I mean. Ok, this is the jacket open:
and this is it buttoned:
I think the waist suppression doesn't necessarily look bad. It's a pretty classic look although it could be potentially a little extreme, not sure.
