Hi everybody,

I need some help with custom shirt measurements. Below are pics of a custom shirt I ordered from propercloth.com. As you can see, there are some issues. The hips are little tight and the collar came out a little big, but my main question is regarding the "poof" of fabric that appears in front of the pectoral area. Does anyody know how to correct this? I think the yoke needs to be widened to take out the slack in the chest area. Does that make sense?

The chest and hip are too tight. The shoulders need to be widened. Also, you have sloping shoulders, but this shirt doesn't compensate for that (notice the diagonal bunching of fabric between your shoulders and chest).

What he said. Sloping shoulders is an option in the "additional options" on the measurements page.
