Hey Styleforum ,
Don't you think there is a major problem with fit at jcrew men's .The armscye is too low on every garments ,creates a baggy feeling between armpit and chest .
I feel like some brands better manage this issue such as Apc , barbour regarding shirts .

The low armscye makes shirt get untucked easily .I'm just asking for a higher armscye so that the slimer guys get a chance of looking good too for cheap.

The anoying thing is that the armscye cannot be modified by a tailor to make it fit better only the partern must be adapted .

my guess is that a lower armhole enables more people to fit into the shirt. With a lower armhole, you might not like it so much but at least you will fit into the shirt. With a higher armhole, there will be some people who find the shirt completely unwearable.

I would say that APC has a generally different aesthetic than J. Crew and is a much smaller company.

There were a number of comments that the tailored jackets from one of the affiliate vendors here (Spier & Mackay) had armholes that were too low, and that they should be higher. So they made the armholes higher by 2 cm last year. Then lots of complaints that the armholes were too high. So they are lowering them by 1 cm this year apparently. It just goes to show that all RTW makers share the same problem that they can't satisfy everyone in terms of fit.

so what the solution is Get bigger ? or mtm or you need to find "the brand" that makes the shirt that fit you .I mean for lower size such as S .no fat kid is going to wear that ,so maybe buiding it slightly upwards woudn't kill nobody.For M i would understand because mass .S between 18-30 is skinny asf so i would pledge to higher it.
