    It's just the shape of the suit. Almost all RTW suits do the same to me. It may be because you've got a muscular build, and so your shoulders/traps aren't fitting properly into the sleeve space. It may just be the shape of your shoulders and back that doesn't quite fit into the suit. It could also be a poorly made suit, although I've had this same problem with some Tom Ford suits, and all RLBL suits.

    Muscular build !!! You have sloped shoulder and the suit shoulder is quite high for your build type.. RLBL has high arm hole. Anyone with sloped shoulder will have the same problem with RLBL.

    I don't think it's too big. I think it's just the shoulder expression/armhole shape not working for him.

    If anything the suit is too small in the chest and under the arms creating that sort of dimple across the breast.

    It happens. Trying to get an absolutely perfect fit on the shoulders on an RTW suit is damn near impossible.

    I actually tried a shorter version of the same suit and it looked and felt absolutely confortable. This is the regular one.

    It is RTW.

    There is always a compromise depending upon cut and the wearer. Too bad.

    I've also had this problem. Loathing has it correct in that it's not that the suit too big, it's that the shape of the sleevehead isn't accounting for the change in shape of the armhole when you're wearing the suit. This is common when a suit is close fitting. It's fixable; it's just a matter of reshaping the sleevehead. But you need a good tailor who can do that without messing it up and you have to be pretty clear to him/her as to what needs to be done. If you google shoulder dimpling, then you should find some websites and threads that discuss this in more detail.

    It may be that your shoulders are broader than the jacket's shoulders but slope more than the jacket is constructed for. I have this problem with some narrow-shouldered brands, particularly Hugo Boss Red. Basically the shoulder bone that should be hitting the seam is actually a bit lower, so the shoulder material above it puckers.

    To my newbie eyes, it looks to have to do with shoulder posture? The suit shoulder appears to have a very straight-upward shape while your shoulders slope to the front. I have the same issue myself.

    As I look around the streets, I've notice many people with this same shoulder issue. Are there any solutions to fixing this or is this just something most people have to live with? It sucks that when I see someone in a suit, the shoulder bunching part is all I see now.

    The Bicep is pushing the sleeve out beyond the shoulder line, thus the dimple is created. IIRC Arm measurement is normally Chest+14" If your arm is bigger than that the chest will fit but your arms will over-fill the sleeve. Not much that can be done other than custom sleeves that are wider than standard or increasing the suit size at the cost of the chest fit.
