i should have used my "sarcastic font" there... no, i think you are right. but i can see the difficulty. having spent so much time on this, i am starting to get a little more understanding of the limitations you have with different design choices. so on that example jacket below, there aren't many seams at all on the front, aside from the one for the zipper. so if you wanted a smooth front, without breaking up the leather by seams, then you sacrifice shaping. so if your model/mannequin has any bust shaping, you will end up with wrinkles like that. this probably explains why the website that is selling the jacket does not show a front facing picture of a model wearing the jacket closed, only open.
it also gives me more understanding as to why certain tops just never seem to flatter me, no matter how i try. if i am going to have any definition of my shape, then i need seams! so seam placement and quantity become major choices.
