    Back pleats on shirts: Center box pleat vs. shoulder pleat vs. no pleat



    Hello everyone,


    Long time reader, first time to the threads.


    Do any of you folks out there know where I can find a tall shirt without a pleat in the back. I have been purchasing shirts at Lands End but my tailor tells me the center pleat on the back of the shirt isn't doing me any favors because I'm tall + athletic and, she says, should have a flat back shirt.


    I know I'm not going to be able to find a no pleat shirt but, what are the different kinds of back pleats? Are there more than just the center and shoulder pleats? The tailor says she can take them out but I'm not interested in giving her even more money.

    I wouldn't recommend having them taken out. There are other pleat options. My tailor (who also makes shirts) has a three pleat sort of thingie in his shirts.


    I don't even know where to get shirts without pleats beside MTM. If anyone else can chime in on this with some answers, please do!!
