    Just purchased from Emmett in London and debating whether or not to keep it before I return to the states. I am lacking a formal white shirt and it looks like a solid option, but I'm concerned with the fit (super slim) -- are the diagonal folds / wrinkles under my chest normal, or is this a sign of a poor fit? Obviously the sleeves need to be taken up, but my concern is with the body.

    Might seem like overkill analysis, but it's a pain in the ass to find clothes that fit well and $200 is a decent chunk of change!

    I like the collar! Keep it, especially if you're going to wear it under a suit. For being a SuperSlim it's not too tight!

    Thanks for the feedback so far. I can't get over those weird creases, but I think they might also show up for some of my other shirts, in certain light.
