Noob question, but why do my dress shirt collars pop out in the back?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, maybe this is dumb but I've tried googling and can't find an answer.

Maybe I have a funny body, but all of my dress collars pop out dramatically from the back of my neck. 

I'm assuming I have something weird going on with sizing, but can someone tell me what specifically that is? What dimensions would I need to change to fix this?

Picture 1 is how I think it ideally should lay (after I just pulled the front down to make the back hug the neck)

 

Picture 2 is how it ends up after 1 minute (and progressively gets worse over time) 


It's a Calvin Klein slim fit Large (not strictly a dress shirt, I know), but most of my shirts give similar results

Your shirt collar looks like it may be a bit too big in the neck. When you button the top button, how much free space do you have? If you can fit more than a couple of fingers inside a buttoned up collar, you need a shirt that is smaller in the neck.

1) Take better photos
2) Your posture has changed significantly between the photos

Frankly, if this happens with all your shirts, I would guess (and this is a wild guess) it's because you're slouching/hunching and, along with a long torso, are pulling on the the shirt forward so much that there isn't enough material to hug the back. Your neck and shoulder look like it's not doing any work whatsoever in the second pic.

Fun test: do a Superman pose. Did that make a difference?

Photographs are quite useless and posture is inconsistent..
