What gives? Why do my shirts from MT keep doing this?

I bought a couple of dress shirts from MT and most of them keep having the same problem. There is this X crease centered on the 2nd button and I can't seem to get rid of it. I have tried: increasing the yoke/shoulder width increasing the chest width increasing my body build option from slim to average and it didn't work, what is going on, it is not like there isn't enough material on the shirts I have now and my chest isn't the muscular type so this problem on my shirts just shouldn't be happening and it is ridiculous. Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this. I am not happy at all with these shirts. (edit: this is not a pic of the actual shirt, just a google pic)

An actual photo of you with said creasing displayed would be more helpful unless that is you in which case I can't see the creasing.

Sounds like you have square, forward pitched shoulders

This.

I suffer from the same thing, i'm pretty large framed and my shirts tend to crease as you describe, if i stand in the mirror and pull my shoulders back the creases dissapear, very frustrating.

Forward-pitched shoulders are increasingly common these days, often as a result from years of bad posture, e.g., being hunched forward while sitting at a computer for ten hours a day.

I have the opposite problem with these shirts, if I pull my shoulders back or stand still there are creases, if I pitch my shoulders forward then the creases disappear. What the hell?

MT should have a mid armhole chest input option, their armholes are way too curved, do people from China have their arms dangling in FRONT of their chests, these shirts are ridiculous.

Good someone made a thread about this. Wearing a MT shirt right now and having the same problem at the third button. None of my other shirts do this except MT. It does seem like the armholes are messed up.

Yeah, there is just a slight pull. I think it must be the arm holes on mine. This feels much different than my bespoke and AC shirts. Something else is weird too. It seems like the placket between the buttons opens up a lot instead of lying flat against my torso. They sometimes open up and show a bit of skin.


Are you guys having this problem?

Try a different shirt maker is my suggestion.


Yes, it is pulling at the button. I thought that was very very obvious based on my first post, but I can confirm it here for the people who are slow.
