Critique Needed on New Custom Jacket

I'm looking for some feedback on my new jacket. Particularly on the arm holes. The arm holes are higher than any of my other stuff. Does it look like I could get away with higher and tighter though? Could I get them so high so that they might just hit my underarms and would that give me some more freedom of movement?

Any other feedback welcome too. It looks like the back of the arms could be cleaned up. I'll have to see what can be done about that. Looks like a sleeve pitch issue though.

Excuse the wrinkles.

Your sleeve is missing a button.

If anything I think the point to point may be a hair to narrow based on how my upper arms are protruding slightly.

Thanks. The fabric is Dormeuil, Kirgyz White. The fabric is amazing and the pics just don't do it justice. It's mostly green with a navy under tone and the raspberry and lighter blue window panes. I'm uploading some detail shots now. The arms are a bit tight. I wanted them taken in a touch from the last jacket but I think we went a bit too far. I think they may be making the shoulders look too wide.

That's my homage to yfyf. Here's a shot of the first jacket I got which actually has slightly wider shoulders for reference.

The armholes seem fine, I think you could do with a fuller sleeve and the line across the shoulders is a bit messy. Who's the tailor?

I think I agree. I'll have to let them out a touch next time around.

It's Evan DeLaney. www.evandelaney.com Highly recommended if you're in AZ or CO.

Are you referring to the pattern matching?
