    Hey guys, I'm reading styleforum for quite a while now and finally decided to sign up.

    Maybe you can give me a little input, what's up with the shoulders on this recently acquired sports coat, which overall fits quite well (sleeves get a tiny bit shortened) but has this weird crease/fold in the rear shoulder area.

    I've a feeling that the shoulders are too wide … but then again, in theory they should fit, doing this test where you lean your shoulder against the wall and if the body touches the wall before the jacket's shoulder, it's said to be a good fit. When I rotate the sleeve a bit by holding it, it seems to vanish.

    What could cause this crease? Anything a regular alteration tailor could fix?

    Sorry for spelling/grammar mistakes, I'm not a native speaker.
