All the stripes match at the basic matching points. The pocket flaps should line up with the stripes below the flap and not always above the flap because of the darts and side body seams. The collar and back match. Nothing is off.
lapel to collar?
stripe ending mid chest?????
taper without termination on center back?
You make suits with this type of pattern matching????????
Thank you. Good to see someone show up that knows what their talking about.
What the other guy is talking about is a matter of preference, not that there's anything "wrong".
I agree with despos.
Lapel to collar generally do not match.
Stripe ending midchest is not incorrect.
The taper on the back is absolutely normal and correct.
Thank you jrd & jd. I was beginning to think my eye was questionable.
Maybe technically nothing wrong, but I would never buy a jacket that looked like that.
Because I think it looks bad. I find the lack of symmetry distracting.
the stripes on a solid suit will match!
Where is there lack of symmetry? Looks symmetrical to me.
One thing that bugs me about it is that the stripe that is swallowed by the chest dart is not centered on the dart, meaning that before it gets swallowed it gets closer to the stripe on one side than it is to the stripe on the other side. Whether this is normal or not I don't know, but I would have thought that the dart should either be centered on a stripe or on the space between two stripes, e.g. (images courtesy of Sator):
