I had my roommate tell me when my shoulders were even before snapping the pics, which is why it is different from the first set. I wanted one with them fairly even so that shifted shoulders wouldn't be influencing how the jacket hung. My muscle stiffness comes and goes, so I don't think the high left is all that consistent. When my left side starts to get stiff and ache, my left shoulder can rise up pretty high. The back center seam of the jacket is not equidistant from the shoulder seams, being closer to the left shoulder than the right. I wasn't familiar with how shoulders should fit, so a big part of my question was whether or not the jacket was too small in that area. Thanks for confirming that it probably isn't. Now that I have a better idea of how my shoulders influence how it hangs, I can see what you mean about how the pockets and misaligned shoulders impact how the skirt hangs. Fabric / maker / store tags are all in the jacket (Harris Tweed / Cesarini / B. Formans).
