    I also have the exact same problem. I took in my midsection measurement by 1/4 inch because I previously had too much excess fabric billowing out at the sides. With that adjustment the shirt fits perfectly and still has a little excess fabric on the sides which feels comfortable, but I also have that bump just above the belt like shown in your picture. Any idea how to solve that issue? I've read on the PC site that a shirt can ride up if the midsection is too tight/fitted, however my shirt still has excess fabric so I'm not sure what's causing it.

    Maybe widen the base of the shirt (forgetting what that is called in PC lingo) and taper the back?

    My theory is that it's actually a shoulder slope deal that's causing the bump above the belt

    Thanks, I may give that a try and increase the bottom wide opening by 1/4 of an inch. I've already included darts in the back and that's fixed the problem I've been having with excess fabric in he back.

    When PC updated the Roma Spread Collar back in March of this year with a stiffer collar band, was the shape/style of the collar slightly modified as well or did it remain the same?
