Duo should come up with clear instructions on the use of the 虽然... 但是 structure. If there are instructions in the lessons please point them out to me as I am only doing strengthening exercises now and have no idea what is in which lesson.
In this question 虽然... comes before the noun/pronoun and 那件衬衫虽然很好看... is marked wrong, but in a previous question 虽然他生病了... is marked wrong and Duo insists on 他虽然生病了... Which is right?
Both order is acceptable, but I would say 那件衬衫虽然很好看... would be preferable. 虽然那件衬衫很好看，但是太贵了！ has a little problem because the noun 衬衫 is nested in the main clause, the correlation to omit it in the subclause is weak; It would actually be better to insert the pronoun 它 in the subclause: 虽然那件衬衫很好看，但是它太贵了！
IMO you can report it if Duo rejects your answer.
