I've been trying for months to figure out what the cause of the following issue is, to no avail from various shirtmakers all telling me something different -
- "it's the midsection, too wide"
- "it's the shoulder slope"
- "it's the chest too tight"
- "too much of a drop from chest to waist"
- "it's normal"
Can someone please help me figure out what the **actual** cause of the following issue is?
Attached are pictures of my actual shirt, and below it are other users with similar issues. My shirt is the white one, with the larger collar.
The issue I'm having is **diagonal lines downwards in the midsection, appears to start from the nipples and extend downwards toward the waistline**. Please advise what the actual fix for this is? Is it the slope of the shoulders? That seems like the most believable, but I've never heard of this specific issue being related to shoulder slope; I've only heard of drag lines in the upper chest area for that issue. I would appreciate the help. Here are my basic shirt measurements:
The other pictures are of similar issues I've seen on the internet which are for dramatization if helpful.
In particular, here's a picture with my arms semi-raised (at my sides) and it appears to fix the issue: http://i.imgur.com/eKEto5d.png
This is what leads me to believe it's the shoulder slope, but I can't be sure because every resource I've read online (such as http://propercloth.c...houlder-slope/)all mention that if the shoulder is not sloped enough, it only affects lines at the upper chest. They don't even mention midsection. I don't know why, but it appears nobody can figure out what's wrong.
