Gentlemen, should we discuss "creases"?))
P.S. Don't get me wrong please, it was a joke of course.
P.P.S. The photo shown above is fabulous, seriously.

Looks comfortable, complete with creasing too, he obviously made the mistake of bending his arms while wearing it ;)
Yep, and it definitely caused to get those "creases" on his shoulders - which looked quite similar to (actually almost the same kind of) ones on your Platon's Dubow, Micawber.
Did Gen. MacArthur's A-2 start looking more like a repro? Or less "historically correct"? Or a bit less "original" because of that? ... LoL))

Every Gen. D. MacArthur's A-2 looked very cool on him, on each photo of him I've seen before.
This photo is no exception.

Seriously - when the wearer was/is great and was/is a real hero - every jacket fits and looks fantastic on such person.
Like Gen. D. MacArthur was. Still is.
That's the point.
Everything else (creases, fit, sleeve length, etc.) doesn't matter in this case. It just looked (and still looks) great on him. That's it.
So, it depends on the wearer of any A-2 I suppose.
P.S. In modern todays life looks like sometimes A-2 "is wearing" any person, but sometimes any person is wearing A-2. When the person is wearing A-2 - it looks/fits great then.
