What effect does narrowing the yoke have on a shirt?

    I'm going for freedom of movement and being able to raise my hands above my head with ease. As I would imagine, narrowing the yoke would make my shoulder arm seams closer to my body, allowing for an easier range of motion, no? Can someone explain what effects occur when you narrow or extend the yoke in terms of range of movement, slim, and aesthetics?

    Thanks

    You received advice on your shirt issue from a well-respected forum member, who happens to have many years of shirt making experience. It would be wise to heed.

    The correct yoke width - which is roughly the width of your shoulders, is not something you can narrow unnecessarily without creating new issues.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with what I asked. This is for general knowledge.
