    Closer look of the shoulders and chest. 1C112477-6992-4534-BDDE-AF0A3C3B01FF.jpeg

    Is this a new jacket? Has it been altered?

    I ask because it looks like the button has been moved away from midline to allow the jacket to fit a bit closer. It just looks like too much overlap, but perhaps it’s because you’re only wearing a t-shirt underneath.

    It looks a tad too big through the body if anything. The length looks fine and the pics are a bit too dark to comment on the specifics of the shoulders, but from where I’m sitting, that looks ok as well.

    It’s brand new, never been altered. I just opened it today. Too big in the body as in, just have it taken in?

    I see the overlap now. The buttons are staggered, which is weird since my other BB Regent fit isn’t.

    I don't think it's too big at all.

    22207FE3-D10F-4384-B974-F47FD7EEDFFA.jpeg For instructional purposes only, I buttoned the bottom button. There is more overlap up top. That should never be the case, should it?

    Sorry, I'm with SG 67 on this, definitely looks like somebody's monkeyed with the buttons.

    Something looks off with the jacket.

    On the original pics, notice the pattern on the lower quarter on your left (screen right). On the opposite side the east/west lines are relatively horizontal. On your left, they are biased down and pointing right (your right).

    And I’m pretty sure the buttons shouldn’t be so offset from midline as is shown in your latest pic.

    I agree. Upon closer inspection, it seems like it was altered, they didn’t like it and returned the jacket. Could the look of the lines be attributed to shoulder scope (my left shoulder is a bit lower), or more of a result of the jacket itself?
