No it was almost like padding fromt the chest kinda buldged out a bit. Hard to explain. They are taking in the chest a bit. More on one side.

No. Does that mean that they put an Apple sticker on it?

there's usually no padding at the chest, only canvass.

i can think of 2 explainations
1. shirt bunching up around the chest area.
2. jacket chest cut too wide and does not contour to your own chest
 

whacked

It looks like the chest is pushing outwards under the armhole. It is caused from the canvass and the chest piece. Not uncommon on some brands. If they don't correct the canvass and only reduce the jacket cloth it will not go away.

Wasn't shirt bunching. It was the chest structure coming out too far and like u say didn't contour. I hope the result is better

That's eaxctly right. This is what is happening. I believe they are taking in fabric. They need to reshape canvas?
