To Yoke or Not to Yoke

This is the question I have for you. Pictured is my first attempt at a bowling shirt for my husband. I made up the pattern from his t-shirt pattern, so the shirt has no yoke. I know what the purpose of the yoke is (to give a better fit in the shoulders and more room around the middle), but if the shirt fits without a yoke, is it still better to have one or not? My previous thought was that a yoke made for a dressier shirt and no yoke was a more casual look.
I would not question this except it seems that all of the professional shirts we have bought him over the years have a yoke regardless of how casual or dressy the shirt may be. I guess I will let the wearer decided. After wearing his new shirt, my husband can tell me if he likes the yoke in his boughten shirt or the lack of a yoke in the shirt I made.
