Is there something wrong with my suit's shoulders?

My friends keep telling me that my suit shoulders are too small and that's causing these "dimples" and that I should get a bigger size.

Is it fixable by a tailor within a reasonable cost range?
Am I making a big deal out of something trivial?

Thanks!

I don't think it has to do with size if I recall what Jeffrey said once.

That jacket is all wrong - not just the shoulders. Sorry dood.

Not sure what this is about, but I see much much worse on here regularly. Plus, his shirt isn't tucked in so it makes it look worse.

I wouldn't worry about the shoulder too much, as more importantly, it has a clean line.

Also, apologies for not including this but the back vents are actually not cut. That's why there's such a spread below the buttons.

I personally feel the shoulder side "dimple" is a non-issue and that the jacket fits fine. If I were to cut the vents, the front would come together much better.

Sarcasmland. Population: 1.

Sarcasm is only effective when all parties involved understand that it is sarcasm. Since a beginner is asking for serious advice, I assume that he wouldn't find your comments sarcastic.

Cue the afterschool music... And now I know.

The beginner thinks everything is fine anyway. If he sticks around, he'll learn soon enough just how worthless my advice is.
