Depends how low your numbers were. If they were just mildly low you might not see much of an effect.
I frequently get these horizontal creases on the shoulder when I try on suits. I am a 42R and otherwise the suit seems to fit. Also I get horizontal creases in between my shoulder blades. Are these things that can be corrected by a tailor?
I think it works!
The advice I heard, that seems to work well for me, is if you are matching patterns make sure they are of different sizes. And usually the tie should have bigger pattern, as in your example. Matching patterns of the same size is master's level with bigger chance of failure.

This is the first rational explanation I've seen. But I still suspect the effect is minimal compared to the warnings I've seen written on this forum.

I see this repeated all the time but never with any real evidence. They are just carbohydrates, how are they causing so much damage? Someone once had a shirt wear out quickly and blamed it on starch when it could have been bad dry cleaning, hot water laundering, or any number of other things that are probably associated with "heavy starch". I call shenanigans. In fact, the starch molecules actually coat the cotton fibers and prevent them from wearing out too quickly. ...
