    Maybe you guys can help me out. I have been ordering from Jantzen for a little while now and keep having the same problem. I keep getting a "pull" in the fabric between the front placket and the right shoulder. Here are some pictures to illustrate what it is I am talking about: [​IMG] and [​IMG] I thnk it is pretty noticeable. I used to specify a regular shoulder and normal shade (body). I am starting to think that maybe I should be specifying either "Square Shoulder" or "Big Chest". I have an erect stance/slope. I have written Ricky numerous times, but have not received a response. Anyone have any thoughts?

    one thing you can do is to send those pictures to him, for reference, with your next order. he should be able to tell how he needs to adjust the cut just from looking at it.

    since it's happening with more than one shirt, it appears there's an asymmetry in your body, as opposed to a miscut shirt. (anything is possible though.) ricky'll have to make some adjustment to the right side of his shirt pattern for you.

    FWIW i'm guessing the right shoulder needs to be cut slightly more 'square' than the left.

    I think you carry your right shoulder a little higher than your left. The pull becomes far more marked on your right.

    I don't think big chest would help - squaring out the shoulders might.

    You may want to take measurements of your yoke, and the drop from the bottom of the collar to the top of the shoulder, and then adjust that appropriately, and send it to Ricky.

    faustian, it is definitely not a miscut shirt since all of the shirts I have ordered from Ricky have the same problem (though the light blue shirt in the picture above is by far the worst... I received that one in a batch that had a number of mistakes).

    I have sent these pictures to him but unfortunately I cannot seem to get a response. I just have to hope that he can fix it. Going forward I am going to order specifying "Square Shoulder".

    Thanks for your help guys. If anyone else has an opinion please chime in.
