    Some of my favorite shirts have a slight problem. Actually two companies, Ralph Lauren, and Coles Shirtmakers. When I button the shirt, the last button sticks out of my pants, and the shirt starts to split apart. Would a snap of some sort, below the pant line solve this problem? Or would that disrupt the shirts ability to move with me?

    Take them to a tailor and have them add another button and button hole farther down the placket.

    Yep. Relatively simple operation. Cut a hole, sew a border around it, sew on a button. Shouldn't even cost too much.
