    I guess a dropped right shoulder causing slight bunching above the buttoning point and below the lapel.

    I have that with almost everything depending on posture, it can be minimized with shoulder correction, but that is not easy and comes with its own set of problems.

    Could be, really only shows on the softest/lightest of fabrics. I've had other tailors try to correct for the slight drop with ruinous results. This doesn't bother me, i also think it is so slight, that its one of those things only people on SF notice while poring over the details of still photos on the internet. Given movement is real life, this isn't a visible issue.

    Its always a bit of torture when you see a photo of your next commission and NsM won't be in town for another 5 weeks. The one on the left is mine.

    I think it happens because tailors fold the cloth over onto itself, then cut the two front panels using the same pattern so they're symmetrical. I've had the issue fixed by just raising the right panel from the shoulder. I think it's actually a pretty easy fix -- at least fro m my experience. But agree with Willing that nobody in real life notices these things. And it's impossible to notice unless you're standing perfectly still.

    Anyway, the jackets look stylish and I think style is more important than the precision of the fit.

    It wouldn't be an issue if you don't care about it. But it is quite visible to be honest. It not only causes the creases around the button, but also ruined the lines at the waist.

    You can put them on, see in what posture the problem disappears, and freeze. If you feel comfortable in that particular posture, then I would say it is not a problem at all.
