I would suggest adjusting for sloped shoulders and possibly adding darts in the lower back to adjust for your curved back. Sleeve length looks OK but hard to say without a well fitting jacket on. The shoulder seams look like they are 1/2" too wide also but would need a better picture to be sure.
Yes we used that guide and compiled measurements from a few of her well fitting shirts. Your post inspired her order.I specified "single forward pleats that begin at the bottom seam of the waistband and connect/line up with the leg crease". Otherwise I think they are Luxire standard forward facing pleats.
Here are some images of some of my recent orders. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask about any details. I will post some more pics later this week (including a Luxire sport coat).
