Quick shirt tailoring question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My neck is a 40, the shirt I want to buy is a 39. The sales assistant kindly assured me that it would be a simple matter to move the button so that the shirt becomes a 40, and the shirt is otherwise well fitted to my body.

Is this generally the appropriate step to take?

I'm not an expert but I would assume that would disrupt the balance of the shirt. It may or may not be the case here but some people will say anything to get a sale.

No. The space for your tie when the collar is done up will be off and the SA has not acocunted for shrinkage.

no, the collar will be off centre if you just move the button. That just SA tricks to get you buy the shirt.

Sounds like I need a bigger/smaller neck.

To the dim sum!
