Ha. Nothing out of the ordinary implied, girth-wise. Never had reason to think about it before, but looking in the mirror now, it may just be that my somewhat narrow hips give me a narrower natural stance than some, so where some guys (in their natural hip-width stance) may have a bit more room between their inner upper things for their junk to fall a bit, mine is forced outward a bit? If that makes sense...Anyways...
I've been wearing Hilfiger cotton briefs for years, but I'm only now converting from pleated dress slacks (I know, I know) to flat fronts, and I find that the cleaner look of the flat fronts makes any bulging more conspicuous.

Tired of creeping shrinkage, since purchasing my most recent batch of dress shirts, I've been home laundering and taking the shirts to my local (NYC) drycleaner for pressing only. Surprisingly, they charge the same $2.50 per shirt as for full laundering . Is this common?

Well, glad it worked out; sorry for leading you astray...

I don't have the knowledge of suit construction to know for certain what caused the problem, but my unschooled layman's guess would be that they took in the back seam of the jacket and were left with too much collar material to reattach to the reduced surface area, if that makes any sense. Anyway, figuring out how they screwed up is not your concern -- I would just return the thing post haste and insist on a full refund, no matter who you end up having to speak with. ...
