BACK DARTS: stitched-down folds creased down the back, these slim the shirt down around the waist area to reduce any blousey-ness. Generally, if the shirt fits fine in the front, but remains loose in the back, we add darts.

In the words of 9tailors CEO, Samantha Shih:
"For construction purposes, you can do one of these options, but not both. If you were to use both back darts and side back pleats, the shirt would look strange and off in the back."
Again, these two options vary according to different body measurements and what fit style you prefer, whether it is European, American, or a Super Slim fit. The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable in your shirt and not "Hulk" out of it, conversely, you don't want to look like you're swimming in it either.
