Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I've gone through about 4 shirt orders now and for the most part I'm liking the fit, but the last tinkering I did seems to have resulted in some issues that I'm not sure how to resolve.
Let me know if better pics / angles are in order, I took these pretty quick this evening. (I'd go to a local tailor to ask them about it, but my eye is all swollen up so I look like a monster at the moment )
On my right shoulder there, the back seems to rise up a bit near the back of the collar and then it turns downward into a crease that doesn't look right at all. I suspect a part of it is my posture, it's not always the best and if I straighten out it's not quite as bad. I don't see the same thing on the other shoulder although you can't see it on this picture.
Just for comparisons sake - there's still a little bit of fold on the left shoulder but the right shoulder definitely looks different.
There seems to be some bunching and folding around the armhole now, which I was not really seeing in my previous order. The only adjustment I made was actually to make the yoke measurement smaller.
I selected sloping shoulders and normal back, and the shirt itself is a plain back without darts.
Wondering if any of the following could be contributing to my problem?
1. Shoulders are still too big, and I should bring in the yoke further. Is that the correct change to make in the case of larger shoulders? Do I need to make other changes to compensate when changing the yoke?
2. One of my shoulders is more sloped, or smaller / shorter than the other. Not sure what to do here other than make a custom comment suggestion on my next order.
3. My posture sucks so I should choose the Bent option. I'm not sure in what cases one would select this though, or whether that would be the only issue at play here.
Or maybe I'm completely off-base here
Maybe I'm too picky and there's no issue? Although I think the previous shirts, even with the shoulder issue as well, looked better in the armhole area.
The rest of the shirt seems fine, and I don't have a problem wearing this one, but I'd rather fix it for future orders and avoid having to make alterations later (if that's even possible).
Side notes unrelated to my sizing questions, the fabric I chose was T374 and I think it's pretty decent - 80s two-ply, and feels solid. I'd pick up other gingham selections from the same line.
I really like the new "thick" MOP buttons, I was surprised with my previous order having the really thick buttons and found them a pain in the ass but these ones feel pretty nice. Hopefully they stick with these for a while!
I'm no tailor, but it looks like it's caused by your dropped left shoulder. Try raising your left shoulder up towards your neck and see if the bunch goes away.
