Hoping some of you experts and aficionados can shine more light on the 'curved yoke' conundrum (dare I revisit it!). I recall some posts from years ago by Mr Kabbaz mentioning them.
Does a slightly curved yoke actually improve fit for somebody with rounded/hunched shoulders? A majority of shoulders I come across tend to be somewhat rounded so I wanted to know what the consensus was. Furthermore, is it possible to produce a curved one-piece yoke? For arguments sake, if i assume I will produce my yoke out of a plain fabric (not striped) and so don't have to deal with the aesthetic issue of matching up stripes etc, will the curve in the bottom seam of the yoke (or back panel) aid rounded/hunched shoulders?
In the aforementioned Kabbaz post, he mentions one-piece yokes 'CANNOT' be made to curve although split yokes could.
However, I have read another excellent tutorial post suggesting one can curve both the yoke and the back panel (with minor adjustments to the sleeve) to produce the desired shirt. There is further evidence in this Frittolini post. Perhaps this is only relevant to a split yoke.
Would love to hear your words of wisdom.
