Fit suggestions needed!

Over the last couple of years I have adjusted my fit and overall very happy with my purchases. However, I still am getting lines around the armpits despite moving to “sloping shoulders”. Should I adjust to ”very sloping shoulders” on my next order? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!View attachment 1283355View attachment 1283353
Yolk seems too long

FINALLY getting around to inputting an order. Can somebody speak to the "stand up," placket options, particularly for the no placket option? Is this done with the goal of the collar standing up better when worn without tie? If so, any reviews on this?

Working on getting my shirt sizing dialed in with PC and know very little about what should be tweaked. Any feedback on things that look like they should be changed before I update measurements and try again? This one is my second attempt and has been laundered. TIA

If you send PC's customer service these pictures they can dial in your measurements for you. They did it for me.

Tough one... Perhaps the chest needs to be increased a bit. Also,I highly recommend a beige or light grey undershirt instead of white. You can see the shirt very much here under the shirt.

Thanks - Yes the chest seems off and wants to bunch and pull all at the same time. And indeed - just threw the shirt on at home and had my wife take a couple quick photos for evaluating.

Did you wash your shirt one or two times before doing this fitting ? The shirt is definitely going to shrink. From what we see from the pictures, I would say there is a few things you can upgrade:

- Collar seems too big. I would try to adjust that before trying to solve the "gap" between the first and second button.
- Gap between first and second button need to be addressed.
- Neck position creates some crease/fold on the yoke. The shirt might need a neck adjustment. I would address that after modifying the collar.
- You cuffs are too wide. You should only be able to slide 2 (max 3) fingers in the cuff.
- Your sleeves also look too short. If you do the Napoleon "hand in jacket" the cuff should remain at the same place and not be pulled back.
- You have some pulling on your right clavicle but not/less on your left. Looking at the pictures it seems like your right shoulder sits lower than your left.
- You might want to dart the back of your shirt. There is extra fabric on the back but not on the front.
