Hi Kinloch
a couple of mitigating factors there. The main thing being that the person in the photo is turning their neck side on. This makes the shoulder tight on the side the person is looking and this will be the main cause of this. It would be a mistake to judge the fit of any coat like this. A good excercise is to stand side on in a mirror and do this. The results will show this. This is a salient lesson when fitting someone. I hope this is of help
regards
Brendon

Hi Bespoke in Aukland

I do appreciate your reply about that backneck - in fact I took several photos and whether he was looking forward or to the right those faults were always there

Being more into tailoring than cutting I have to admit to never being certain as to the cure of this unsightly problem. It seems the shoulders are cut with more slope than the wearer causing the collar to collapse at the back and also in this case the nape is too high, also perhaps the fault may be worsened by a tailoring fault - not enough wedge in the shoulder canvas and forepart causing drag lines from nape to front of shoulder/arm ball joint

thanks again for your input
