Shirt fabric pulling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Another question, regarding my Jantzen shirts, for anyone who might have an answer... I notice that the fabric near my shoulder line across to the upper portion of the placket (nearing my neck) appears to "pull" (visible folds). Now, I know I have my shoulder width measured correctly... I am beginning to wonder if maybe it is because, when choosing my "Shape of Shoulder", I select "Normal Shoulder" when perhaps I have either a "Square Shoulder" or "Slope Shoulder". Unfortunately I do not have access to a digtal camera to illustrate what I am talking about. Has anyone else had this problem? Any thoughts on what might be causing it?

Water, I'm not a super fashion expert, but I believe that in the industry, the appearance of folds or wrinkles (referred to as "set") on new clothing can indicate improper fit. Horizontal wrinkles tend to sit above or below an area of tight fit; vertical wrinkles could indicate an oversize fit; and diagonal wrinkles "point" to areas too large or small for the design of the clothes. And that's about all I've read on the subject. That probably doesn't help you one bit, but maybe it's a start.

The wrinkles (or folds) in the fabric tend to be more horizontal or angled from the top buttons on the placket to the shoulders. The trouble I am having diagnosing this problem is that the shoulder width appears to be perfect. I always thought of myslef as having a "normal" shoulder slope, although I am beginning to think that perhaps I am more "square" shouldered. Maybe I will try ordering a "square shoulder" on my next Jantzen shirt.

You can try to send a picture of your shoulders to Ricky if you want to eliminate some guesswork.

I too have this problem, and believe you are correct that the problem has to do with shoulder slope. I also have a small amount of excess fabric behind the neck, perhaps due to the same problem. I will post pictures as soon as I have access to a digital camera.
