Is it when they are at his shoulders?

While rear facing the straps should be at or below your baby's shoulders. So, don't move the straps up until your baby's shoulders are at the next strap level.
Once tightened, you should not be able to pinch the straps at the shoulders. The clothing your baby is wearing should not interfer with the straps at all. A heavy jacket, thick sweater, etc will compress in an accident, and could result in your baby being ejected from the seat if the straps are too lose to hold the baby in the seat. Here's a HUGE FAQ list that covers how tight the straps should be among other things. When it's cold, a blanket over the already strapped in baby or a jacket put on backwards over the buckled in baby is your best bed. A thin fleece jacket shouldn't interfer with the straps.
