    I've seen them on occasion, e.g., at Louis Boston Luciano Barbera

    What's the purpose? Is it extra movement, pure aesthetic , fad, or what?

    What do people think? It makes the shoulder a little poofy but also lets the arm/shoulder seam be placed higher on the shoulder.

    I'd appreciate views, and thanks in advance.

    the ones I'm thinking of are Barbera from Louis Boston but I wouldn't be surprised if others have them.
