    Thanks!
    While ironing. Not sure (I don't think?) if it will help keep wrinkles out through wears...
    Weird that it becomes wrinkly right away. BTW, which fabric?

    I have the same experience with my S&M shirts also. I have always found the issues of 100% cotton shirts and wrinkles confusing. Most of the people on this forum are as OCD if not more OCD than me and will get every piece of clothing tailored to perfection, but they vow to only wear 100% cotton or linen shirts that are must iron and in my experience almost all of those get wrinkles. I personally go back and forth, I have some non-iron Stafford, Nordstrom and BR shirts that I really like and I love the fact that they do not wrinkle. I also have some S&M, Natty and Proper Cloth MTM shirts where the fabric is nice / soft and the fit is awesome but wrinkles (mostly in the sleeves for me) drive me bonkers (again a little OCD - YES) and it really surprises me more of the people on this forum are not in the same boat.

    I've found that wearing shirt stays helps a lot with this issue, particularly in the areas you mentioned.

I used to love the banana republic TSF, but I'm trying to solve the overheating, haha. 99 problems.
    Perhaps get a different tailor or you don't fit into those two different sizes as well as you think? Wrinkling in the chest would mean (to me) that there is excess fabric to move and crease in that area. I am not a tailor and i do not play one on TV but with such a strong taper you may need something slightly more involved (or more precise) then a dart to take the waist in further.

    Since you like S&M have you tried their custom shirts? Sounds like it might be up your alley if you are paying a tailor afterwards.

    Hi! Wrinkles are sometimes annoying specially when we are heading in our workplace or meetings. But the remedy to this is, spray water on your shirt and leave it for 5 minutes. After that on a normal temperature, iron it, wrinkles will be gone. Another option can be using starch, but this might fade the color.
    Good luck mate!

    At the risk of speaking for the OP, his question is not about wrinkles BEFORE wearing, its about the cause and solution for wrinkles DURING wearing. In other words, his dress shirts which went on unwrinkled become wrinkled quicker than appears to be normal.
