    Oooh, I like this. Are the shoulders too narrow?

  2. Chris says:

    Looks like the shoulders are a touch too wide, causing bunching at the top of the sleeve.

  3. Kris says:

    The coat is too small in the shoulders.

  4. JVcounsel says:

    Shoulders are too wide and left sleeve may be uneven.

  5. Logan says:

    The sleeves are too long. Should show a bit of cuff.

  6. Michael says:

    The shoulders are good, but the sleeves are uneven. Your stance is a bit uneven, like in most people, so I would have the left sleeve shortened. Plus, the waist should be tailored to give it a more snug fit.

    In my honest opinion, although I can’t quite clearly make it up from the photo; the jacket feels like it’s a tad too long.

  7. Taylor says:

    What is the answer?! To me, it looks like the button stance is a bit high.

  8. Jeff says:

    Most folks got it right – the main issue is that the shoulders are too narrow. The sleeve length is also slightly uneven.
