Sorry - didn't mean to snub you. Overlooked your question.

I load up the page full of fabrics - mostly the "new materials" page. Then I search for terms like "jkt" to see all of the higher quality fabrics, or "120" to see all of the 120 thread counts, etc.

Beyond that - I spend an obsessive amount of time pouring over the list. I copy and paste fabrics into a word document. I pare the list down to about 40 fabrics. Then I picked about 20. . . . . . .and then I do it again!!!!

After all that work, I selected my first fabric on my own. The next two shirts were ordered specifically after seeing someone else post the fabrics on this forum.

You still have a bit too much fabric overall. I would suggest having the sizing tapered down slightly, in addition to your sleeve length being too long. Neck appears fine. However, alway's keep shrinkage in mind. Beyond that, you're fine!

No problem at all, I had guessed so.

That's a lenghty process, but it seems like a godd one, thanks for the tip. I had not even gathered that "jkt" is the name of those more expensive fabrics, that alone is a good tip for me.

This may have been mentioned before, but...

How questionable does the title of this thread sound?

If someone asked you what you were reading on the PC and you responded with

"A, Rate my Johnson thread on an internet forum, they even posted pics"

Pretty funny, to me at least...

Jantzen!! Not Johnson! Jantzen!!! (Whew. Dodged a bullet there).

On a serious note. The sleeves are DEFINITELY not too long. The problem is that the cuff is about 3/8" too big. The error in cuff measurement is my own. Also, the waist is not too big. Sadly, if I took the picture while sitting, one could tell that I still have some bulge, which needs a place to stay. With any less fabric, the shirt would start to pull. Nothing looks worse IMHO than a shirt that is taught around one's belly. (and I like the comfort factor of being able to go up and down a few pounds without the shirt looking tight.)

Thanks again for everyone's comments.
