    Front is quite good but the upper back has some problems. Looks like your shoulders are too square (am I using the correct term?) to the jacket.

    need to raise the back for sure to help eliminate some problems in the back. the shoulder/upper arm looks very frumpy and not put together very well. I dont know if its the angle or what but thats what i am seeing

    Not great, not terrible. Back looks bad

    Also, why did you get flat pockets? Patch pockets or bust if you are in the position to customize, IMO

    a size to large.
    and the back needs work, I am not sure how the salesman let you out of the store.
    i would not use that salesman again

    yeah those shoulders look at least .5" too big.

    front looks better than the back, but still

    Return it; you can get a refund if you're not happy with the results.

    What's the consensus on sizing?

    Do I need to get a smaller coat? Mine is a 39r. Or are these "simple" alterations?

    Would that make flap pockets on a navy blazer the mark of a cad?
