What is wrong with the fit of this suit's shoulder?

I frequently get these horizontal creases on the shoulder when I try on suits. I am a 42R and otherwise the suit seems to fit. Also I get horizontal creases in between my shoulder blades. Are these things that can be corrected by a tailor?

It looks like one or both of the issues of a misshaped armhole for your structure and sleeve pitch being off. I'm not sure how much a tailor can do about that on a RTW suit. I would look for a brand that makes a suit closer to your shoulder type. I am guessing a brand ith less structure in the shoulders.

We call it a divot here. Hopefully foo or Manton or someone else who knows what they're talking about can weigh in. In the absence of that, do a search for that term.
