    How does a person avoid placket buckling?????

    It drives me completely nuts and I've received nearly no constructive feedback when I've asked in the past about it.

    I have a very slim frame and my shirt selections fall into 2 catagories:

    Crazy placket buckling

    or

    Wearing a tent.

    EDIT, just noticed you can see the placket buckled on my shirt in my avatar pic [​IMG]

    Has anyone purchased a leather jacket? Would love to see pics if so.

    This also used to drive me nuts. I switched to high rise trousers and suspenders when tucking in a shirt, and that mostly eliminated the problem. I wouldn't recommend shirt stays.

    Would a shirt that is too slim through the hips contribute to placket buckling? Seems like it might cause the shirt to ride up. That fabric would have to go somewhere.

    You could be on to something there.

    I really notice it on my Super Slim fit shirts.

    @Henry Carter - I keep admiring the collar on your Luxire shirts...was this custom designed for you? Care to share the deets on it?

    No worries, it is my collar, but the general details of it from my order notes are this -

    "Based on Milano 2 collar from Propercloth but with slightly shorter points, see here http://propercloth.com/collar-styles/milano-ii-spread-collar - but with 3 1/2" points and only 1 button closure (if possible)". Though I admit it is more spread in reality than that which I've now asked them to tweak on the 3rd iteration.

    Order number for this is 7210 and I asked for fused, but soft interlining.

    Ages ago there was some discussion around this, think we were calling it 'billowing' at the time, might help to search as there were some good suggestions but I recall one member getting a hidden button added between X & Y buttons to prevent it (at least on the placket). The other common suggestion was higher rise trousers to minimise it.

    That, and usually it means the shirt is simply too slim.

    If I have learnt anything, it's that achieving a GQ-esque slim fit while still remaining comfortable/mobile when sitting and standing is impossible. You have to compromise.

    I prefer to have a smaller back waist than front to minimise extra fabric at the back while still being comfortable in the front.

    If you're really slim or have a back that curves in a lot, or a big drop, then darts might be the only way to go.

    What about having the lowest buttonhole placed horizontally?

    Sorry if this is OT but is there a "How does it fit" Thread in this forum or should I post the pictures here for a discussion (luxire cloths)?
