    Hi all - great forum!

    I have a fairly muscular build, with sloping shoulders.

    I've knocked back quite a few OTR jackets because my delts sit way below the point of the jacket shoulder, and so there's a big divot. I've been looking at the SuitSupply Copenhagen because I think an unstructured shoulder is my only hope!

    Anyway, I've just realised the problem is worse on my right because my rear deltoid on that side is underdeveloped, meaning in a lot of jackets I'll fill the shoulder at the front but there's a divot to the rear. Sorry I don't have photos.

    My question:
    How far do people go in constructing shoulders to address a 'problem' like this? Are there any simple options?

    I could work on it at the gym but after 20 years in the gym they're unlikely to change dramatically without an amount of effort I could not sustain.

    Thanks for any ideas or information!

    Welcome to the forum, @SimpleStyle . It's really hard to give feedback without seeing the problem. If you can, snap a picture with a jacket on and post the picture here http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions. Hopefully one of the tailors that follow the thread will chime in to let you know if anything can be done to OTR jackets to address the issue. Best of luck.
