Speaking only for myself, my nipples aren't on my back
seriously, a suit jacket different from other jackets such as bomber jacket, it is this area u will feel wrapped

ok, maybe actually it is not totally wrapped, but u may feel the tension, ok?
if, in question, I will insist the word "wrap"

I think this depends on the silhouette. One of my tailors cuts a drape jacket. The chest is very full. It hovers around my chest and I don't really feel it touching me.

Not a photo of me, but you can see some of the fullness here:

I would say : it's loose, but it still "wraps" ur chest

Hi guys,

Just wanted to give you an update that I visited the sartoria again yesterday, where the owner and creative director of the place was present. When trying the jackets on again, it became clear that the issue most certainly is not that the shoulder is too extended. The sleeve line begins exactly where my shoulder ends.

What seems to have happened is that they had left the shoulder completely unstructured yet put a layer of padding in the begin of the shoulder line next to my neck. This did not seem to complement my rather peculiar shoulder line and created the humpback effect. Basically I was given too options: 1) either we remove all the padding from the shoulder line to make it completely unstructured or 2) go for a more structured look by increasing padding to various parts of the shoulder line. I decided to go with the first option since a heavily padded shoulder sounds miserably hot for the conditions here.

I should receive the jackets again next week. Let's hope the end result will be better!

either more or LESS, a formal suit jacket must have padding

sorry if I seems offending, I don't mean to
it looks like some people are making fun with you
I haven't seen curved suit shoulder in my entire life
some are thicker, some are thinner
but really not curved

hope u don't mind I say these words
