I always have poor luck with Simplicity patterns so don't even bother anymore. I am not surprised about the poor fit. The most consistent good luck is obtained with the Kwik sew patterns, especially for men and they do have several different styles including a western style. Try Kwik Sew and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I have made 20 shirts for my husband with KS2777.

Thank you for your honest review of this pattern. My dad loves western style shirts. About three years ago I made McCall's western shirt pattern, 2453, and it turned out really well. My dad loved it and I had very few fit problems. I would do a review of it, but it's been such a long time and my parents don't live nearby (I don't have a picture of his finished shirt). A couple of views of the pattern do the same thing with the yoke-as-pocket-flaps, and that's the one I made, but it didn't look wrong on Dad. He's really well-porportioned, so I'm sure that helped. I understand how pockets and collars and yokes can overwhelm smaller people, and it's a shame the pattern companies don't think about making mens' patterns petite-able.

I just bought that pattern at the labor day sale. Thank you for letting us know, my DH wears a med shirt so I think I will try a different one instead.
