I haven't had the jacket altered or anything. I was a little skeptical about to do the shoulders.
OK. Ask always, thank you. I thought it might’ve been just a little bit too big at first.From what I can see, it looks fine. In the last pic, there’s a slight divot in the right shoulder but it may just have to do something with the way you’re standing.
What was your concern?
If I try to do a handstand, I will probably end up in the hospital.The shoulders don't look bad, but it would be better if you would provide a photo in which your arms are reaching out perpendicular to your torso and another in which you are reaching straight up with both arms. Let's see how those shoulders behave when they are put to the test, not just when they are at ease.
Bonus points if you give us a shot of you doing a handstand.
I was kidding about the handstand, but I would have liked to assess the armholes and see how the shoulder pads behaved with outstretched arms. It's easy for the shoulders of a jacket to look agreeable when the wearer's arms are hanging down, limp and relaxed. If, however, the armholes are too large and/or the shoulder pads rise like a boat at high tide when the arms are lifted, then one has a deal-breaker on one's hands. (I know Jeff didn't ask about the armholes, but he should have.)^
Tongue and cheek meter's in the shop, so not really sure about the above.
