Barbera is not exactly known for such shenanigans, is he? Look at this: bizarre tailoring or trick photography?

It's just a patch pocket, though it does appear to be of peculiar proportions...

Well, duh. Obviously it's a patch pocket -- but it looks like it's about half as wide as it should -- or usually would -- be. Made for the iGent cell phone user?

Or a small collection of writing utensils.

Looks pretty "off" to me.

An oddly shaped patch pocket (well, a very oddly shaped patch pocket) that looks dreadful.

Is this garment bespoke (in which case it is not the cutter's responsibility) or else something of which the cutter should be ashamed?

Patterns are matched. Nothing else matters.
