Not at all. Gussets from Falcon are quite slim and not noticeable. That jacket looks like its several sizes too big in the upper bodyLooking for a quick, crowd-sourced check on my understanding of shoulder gussets. I will be ordering the moto in lambskin. As I've explained to Charly, I'm looking for soft, rounded shoulder as opposed to a jutted, angular look. To my mind, the key distinction there is where the shoulder seam ends in relation to the space allotted for the ball socket of the arm. A double rider has a sharp, angular shoulder. I don't want that. The moto, as I have been led to understand, has the softer shoulder I am seeking.
Having no experience with them, I'm trying to understand if there is anything structurally about gussets that would run into direct conflict with a rounded shoulder. Put differently, do shoulder gussets have to extend to the point where your the ball joint ends and where there is complete dropoff, or can they be nestled in closer to the neck, as there is then additional fabric sloping toward this dropoff point?
I cannot find any images of gussets on a FG moto or similar being worn, by way of example. So, will this

look like this
I might ask in addition, can I expect gnarly bunching like above with the addition of shoulder gussets?
