Pulling at chest normal for shirt with button down dollar?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased some extra slim fit BB OCBDs after trying on both the normal slim fit and extra slim fit versions. The normal slim fit seemed too big all around. I really love the extra slim fit ones I got in almost all fit aspects, however I've noticed one potential problem area with them.

If I button all buttons except the top button at the neck (the way I wear them most of the time), a line often forms from the top most buttoned button to the shoulder, much like you see here (I apologize for not having pictures of this effect on my shirts. I might add some tonight if necessary.):









Now, if I button all the buttons, including the very top button (for example, if I were going to wear a tie), this line more or less goes away.

Incidentally, if I button all buttons except the top button at the neck and also unbutton the collar buttons (I would never wear it this way), the line also goes away or at least subsides.

Is this to be expected in a shirt with a button down collar?

Bump.

Are any of those photos you?

Pulling is never right. The shoulders all look too big in the above pics to me.

I've had this problem and was told by a tailor that it results from my having square shoulders. Moving the button(s) slightly might help.

You can just not button the top two and it would probably fix the problem.
