Just got my first shirt, Classic Blue Oxford with the Broke and Bespoke BD order #7921. Was on my doorstep in 8 days, amazing turnaround and I love the collar roll. Could I get some tips for my next fit? I was thinking shaving a bit off the bicep maybe widening the chest a little. The major issue would be the folds and pulling on my upper chest.
