That stuff fades quite a lot, right?
What do you all think about this stitch error on a potential pair of factory second cordovans? Fixable in any way? Could it cause longevity issues? Would it bother you?
Here is an example of what I am talking about re back darts and white shirts.It's not the stitching than irks me, it's the fact that, especially on white and other light coloured shirts, you can often see the fabric that has been taken in underneath, cf. the blue darted shirt.http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/the-italian-fit-try-a-back-dart/
@luxire @LuxireStudio A small suggestion - when taking photos for your tumblr, sometimes it might be good to photograph dress/spread collar shirts with a tie, so give an idea of how the collar looks when worn in that way.
It's easy but I wouldn't say it's economical compared to the cost of the shirt.IMO if you are regularly altering otr shirts then you might as well go MTM at that point.
This is the back of my only shirt with darts. I've left them in because the pattern matching was done so well that they're essentially invisible unless you look for them. On plain shirts, particularly on white shirts, the extra fabric can be seen against the back of the wearer. Anyway its a matter of personal preference obviously. Either way is miles better than an ill fitting shirt...
I'd disagree and say that from what I've seen, darts are at their *most* visible on plain shirts, and can only really be hidden well on some patterned shirts and then by a good tailor. I think they're very obvious most of the time. If you can slim a shirt without them, then why use them? I do agree that there are some people, ie gym junkies, who have such a large drop that they are pretty much necessary.
I'm of the view that you should always do as much as you can to slim a shirt without using darts. No darts is a much nicer look. E,g if going MTM, have a smaller back waist measurement than front waist.
