On my MTM shirts, the shirtmaker gets it right, but on many RTW shirts, the shoulder seam is a little too far out for me. I quite like mafoofan's and Matt's sleeve/shoulder treatment and wonder whether a good RTW shirt can have the armholes brought in--narrowing the shoulder width and bringing the sleeves up onto the top outer edge of the shoulders. Suppose that the shirt is a little too large in the chest as well (often the case for me), so that there's extra material there as well. Can such a RTW shirt with too-wide shoulders be somewhat Neapolitanized? Mafoofan, Manton, anyone?
