I'm not sure if a tailor is able to take more fabric from the back when taking in from the sides. If not then there's a chance it'll end up too tight in the chest. Happened to me once, good thing it was just a cheap BB shirt.

The problem with having it taken in on the sides is that it only takes in material up to the armpits of the shirt. That leaves from the armpit to the yoke that is not taken in, and it can still blouse there.

I have the same problem with my size S. The easiest & best way, imo, is to sew the box pleats all the way, like a BOO shirt & the effect is pretty good too.

 

Darts + box pleats make the shirt looks silly.

You can essentially create darts when you stitch the box pleat down, if needed. Just have the tailor tuck more material in under the box pleat as it is being stitched down, if that makes any sense.

Sounds like really great idea actually, to just sew the box pleat all the way down. Who's going to volunteer!

I did this to all my 10+ gitman shirts.  It's nice, but too much work, imo.  Rather get something perfect fitting like Uniqlo or EP.

Here's the back of a shirt, showing the box pleat going down to the hem.

Be warned though if you stitch the box pleat down it can alter the look of the shirt. I noticed that the body is slimmer and the shirt like curves in before it reaches my butt.

Thanks for the picture dbear. Do you guys have it stitched down "flat" using only the normal amount of fabric in the pleat fold or tuck extra as zissou suggested? I don't need it to be skin tight slim, just reign it in some back there smile.gif

Stitching down the box pleat all the way is a good idea. I'm gonna try it with a Uniqlo oxford first.
post #3041 of 3974

Just tuck in the normal amount of material that the pleat allows. It'll be slimmer after that but the result is better than adding darts.

 

Any tailor should be able to do it with a minimum sum.

Anybody have a bead on the red and black buffalo plaid "camp shirt" that's part of this season's lineup?  I've had no luck in finding one as of yet.

^This. Someone posted a link to a European stockist that had it maybe a month ago, but I can't seem to find that post anymore.

Ha!  Not to worry - I'm a dyed-in-the-wool large.

I've seen pretty much the same options across the usual range of dealers, but no trace of that buffalo plaid.  You're probably right - it'll show up with retailers' second shipments.

 

Also of note is the scarcity of what South Willard has listed as a "Natural w/Blue Ticking Stripe."  They're the only store I've seen offering that one so far.
