IMO: I have been taught to pad-stitch the shoulder-pad to the canvas then largish backstitch around the armhole seam allowance.

I want to cut this very much. But I never cut it before I do not know where I can see the cut.

Yes, that article had a bit of age on it. (Paul Newman has been gone for years!)

In 1990, the actors mentioned were wearing coats with considerable drape - just coming out of the 80's. Applying the concave/convex thinking to that time frame may have some merit - but mostly it just sounded like hooey - talking to make noise.

Some good basic statements made, but nothing truly original. There's much better information posted here to be studied rather than wasting time considering concave vs convex.

I really wouldn't concern myself with it.
