Explanation: Assuming I'm understanding correctly how they mean "pinzada",
(I think "pleated" would be "plisada"):
If you follow the first link below, you'll see a picture of a tailored fit shirt, and the purple outline behind of a classic fit shirt (straight and not fitted).
Notice how the description to the right says
"front and back darts" (darts are "pinzas")
Women’s t-shirts have several points at which they are tailored
differently from a man’s shirt. The most noticeable point is that
the waist on a woman’s t-shirt fits very differently. The waist
is narrower on a women’s t-shirt than the rest of the shirt.
This fits better with a woman’s natural shape. It makes it
more comfortable for the woman to wear as she will not have
a lot of loose fabric that bunches at the waist. The more
tailored fit makes the t-shirt lighter and easier to wear
for any woman. http://fibers.com/blog/what-is-the-difference-between-mens-a...
