So I've ordered about 8 shirts over the course the year from Jantzen. I think I've dialed in the fit but there is one problem I don't know how to fix. See attached photos. The yoke is not sitting flush with my shoulders in the area to the left and right of my neck. Can anyone recommend how I can ask Ricky to fix this or what needs to be changed in the measurements so this doesn't happen? My latest order is below.

Thanks.

i have sort of a similar problem as well, if i pull my shirt down from the back it seems to all work, but it doesn't naturally sit that way

i wish you had buttoned the collar and done a full length shirt outside.
you may need more square shoulders like danyllau.
or like constant struggle need a shorter back at the top, thats from erect posture.

or you may need both.

I hope you have found what you are looking for in the previous posts. I think that they are spot on with regard to the issue with your shirts. The issue involves the cut on the yoke piece of your shirt. It does not match the shape of our shoulders. Send Ricky the pictures you have posted here and ask his advice. I think he will say that you need to have a 'more square' shoulder rather than a sloped shoulder.

My guess is this will eliminate the bulge that your are experiencing with your shirts at the seam between the collar and the yoke.
