The seam seems fine. I just wonder is it normal to see the padding and canvass of the blazer? The sleeves are lined.
I'm not a tailoring expert, but I have numerous unlined and partially lined blazers from all across the price spectrum: from Theory, Oxxford, Isaia, Corneliani, etc. Not one of them exhibits what you are showing.
I'm necro'ing to update my previous post. In the years since then, I've read about some high end manufacturers doing this intentionally - having an opening in the inside of jacket - so that the owner can be assured that it is a canvassed interior. It's supposedly big in japan.I'm not a tailoring expert, but I have numerous unlined and partially lined blazers from all across the price spectrum: from Theory, Oxxford, Isaia, Corneliani, etc. Not one of them exhibits what you are showing. I would consider that a defect, even if intentional by the manufacturer.
I'm going to retract my previous statement - I saw an unlined and unstructured Zegna blazer this past weekend where it looked like this. However, since it was totally unstructured - no padding at all - it didn't look like a "mistake" to the untrained eye. I could see where if it did have had padding it would have appeared very unfinished, but it wouldn't have been. I think I'd worry that the padding not being closed in would give it more opportunity to shift or be damaged somehow, but I bet the real tailors among us would tell me I have nothing to worry about. I'll also note that on some of my partial lined jackets, that when donning I occasionally "miss" the armhole in such a way that my arm goes down the sleeve, but outside the lining - when that happens and I worry that I'll pull/damage lining - in this situation, I'd hate to "miss" and put my arm through the shoulder.
