You may want to narrow the sleeve at the cuff, as atailor suggested. Are you wearing a watch in that picture? How are the cuffs feel when you put a watch on?
The cut of the shirt is too rectangular. When you increase the chest width, it will have a more pleasing athletic cut.
Thanks for the great review! Now, I want to order a shirt.
Nope, not wearing a watch. The shirt actually has a visible taper to it when you lay it flat and look at it. I dont want the chest too big, because i dont like the look of the excess material bunching up. I asked them to make the shirt 18" from seam to seam across the front, but its a little too snug ( my actual chest measures 35") . For my next order, I will make it 18.5" from seam to seam. Otherwise I am happy with it. My advice, dont take a gamble with measurements off the body, I did that and they completely F'ed up the waist measurement making it way too big. If you give them measurements from an existing shirt, it appears they follow that to a tee!
