    Hey guys - got a quick question and knew I could get some help here.

    Bought a nice Edwin Sazario by R Caruso suit from wowniceshirt on ebay.

    Sazario by Caruso

    Got it home and it's a beautiful suit. However, there are a bunch of creases in the shoulder area, and I'm not sure if it can be fixed. In fact, it looks like crap when I try it on.

    Any thoughts on what might cause this and how to fix it (if that's even an option)? I appreciate the help.

    Top pic is unclear but looks like shirring.Quite extensive, usually it is more subtle. Look it up. Not a 'mistake' or creasing.
    I won't say for sure but I do not think you are eliminating that if it is and if you are, not easily.

    Hard to tell based on the photos, but agreed it looks like shirring. It's deliberate.

    Whether you like it or not is another story...

    thanks guys. shirring is new to me.

    what would be the reason for doing this? decorative? I'll take another pic or two when I get home to give you a better idea of what it looks like. not a fan. it feels like there's wool (or some material) coming out over the shoulder seam to create the look.
