Your fitted shirt "pattern" may be stretched out or uneven from years of washing or cheap construction. The most important thing is to make sure the points of the armpit are even with each other. Use a ruler to check this on the front of the shirt and on the back. Don't be afraid to stretch your pattern to suit your needs. To check that the design of your men's shirt is even, try folding in each side of your pattern until you reach the edge of the design on the men's shirt. If both sides fold evenly, the design is centered. Eyeball the front and back and try to make them straight and even with each other. Lastly, be sure to smooth out all wrinkles. It may be easier to pin the first time, but you'll find the pattern tends to stick in place.
