    I'd like your thoughts first please, before I say what is bothering me.
    Thanks!

    I think the stacking of the sleeve is due to your hand in the pocket.
    Also I assume you want the jacket to be on the short side.
    So what I notice is the shape of the shoulder, it looks off to my eye, but unluckily I have no idea what might be wrong with it.

    Yup, I am talking about the shape of the shoulder. Doesn't it look too boxy / square / irregularly shaped?

    Yes, that is what I thought too.
    A shame, the outfit looks lovely otherwise!
    Have you asked in the tailors alternation thread as well?

    Maybe just the slightest 'boxiness' or whatever to the shoulder, but looks pretty good to me!

    Thanks for the feedback! To clarify, this is not my blazer. I will ask in the tailors thread as well!
