I think all of your adjustments make sense, except not sure if you need extra length? It appears that the overall is good ... but I suppose better a bit too long versus too short. You might want to consider slightly more on the left wrist if you wear anything other than the slimmest of watches. In terms of your last questions; 1) Really a preference. Some people argue that on a properly fitted shirt there really shouldn't be much gaping so therefore no need for...

Very nice website ... better than tailorstore.com which I've always found to be better than most. Unfortunatly with only 17 fabrics to choose from I'm not sure I'd order from them. Maybe a couple of basic ones just to check them out. Certainly one to bookmark. EDIT - Tried to order a shirt, and no matter which fabric choice you make it doesn't 'take'. I've got 7 shirts with "Clean Break" fabric in my cart.

I'm willing to take a chance on these guys, since the thought of being able to quickly order a fitting suit/shirt/coat to anywhere in the world in 5 mins (after measurements are verified) on the net is _really_ enticing for a modern nomad like myself. Anyone care to give their opinions on their purchase now one...
Great post! I've tried both Jantzen and Tailorstore with decent results. My personal favourite is mytailor.com - you might want to give them a try for comparison's sake.

I should also note that the coat is, as others have noted earlier in the thread, half canvassed. The eBay listing says it's full, but that's not the case. I had my tailor put on a nice set of Black Horn buttons and it made a huge difference. I know this is a little like those guys that pimp out a Honda Civic, but for $25...
