I don't actually know - Modern is funny about what it sometimes leaves out in its descriptions. I will say it's extremely smooth cloth - your fingers can just barely discern surface texture. If it was much finer it would start to take on a sheen, which I don't like. For the casual, check, button down shirt I ordered, it's at the limits of what I'd want.

After laundering and drying (gently) the shirt, it fits wonderfully, but the darn thing is about 4" too short in the body. This has to be an oversight on someone's part as every other measurement is correct to within about 1/8" of what I specified. All the important stuff above the waterline is fine, but if I bend over to tie my shoes I'll be tucking. I emailed them - I wonder if I'll get a free shirt. It wasn't my intention, but I won't say no.

Stitching and construction are the equal, if not the superior of the shirts I've been getting. Scary straight single needle work. The collar buttons are cut from the same thickness as the front buttons, which makes them look almost square in profile - a little odd, but not objectionable.

Shirt ordered 5/26, delivered to my door 6/05. Dayum...

Damn that's fast shipping. I've ordered twice so far, production times have also been 8-10 days, my first order spent 9 days in transit. The second time I went for express shipping, and it took 7 days and it went by some courier I'd never heard of.

I'll save my money next time and wait 2 more days.

I am thinking of ordering a wool pants from them but kind of hesitate given that I have not seen any prior experience, especially it will be about $90-$110 shipped. Is there any current coupon?

Which collar is this? It's not the usual cutaway.
post #366 of 688
^ That looks to be the large one button cutaway. I have it along with the large two button cutaway.
post #367 of 688
Yep, looks like the large cutaway, but it could also be a custom measurement job.

I ordered my first shirt from them recently. On tracking online, I noticed that they tried to deliver yesterday. I was at home at the timestamps noted, so not sure what happened. Has anyone tried to contact the US office of the mailing service they use?

They tried to deliver to me, too. I wasn't home, and I heard nothing else about it. I contacted MyT and they said that a slip should have been left on the door, but it wasn't. Long story short, it was sitting at the local post office the next day, picked it up and signed for it. Guess I'll probably have to do this for most orders as I'm gone a lot. I may leave a sign on the door with instructions to leave it. Try your local post office; it's probably sitting there. They use EMS to get it to the US, but probably USPS from there to your your door. Good luck contacting EMS.

Thanks. Just noticed the USPS slip in my mailbox too!

I just e-mailed them and got a quick response - it's "cutaway - large."

Modern Tailor has shifted from priority USPS to Global Express, which requires a signature as well as a receipt form since it is from China. My most recent order required three signatures.

So I'm considering my first order from modern tailor, and I used the measurements of my best fitting shirt. Will they follow these exactly, and will the shirt shrink? Should I add anything to my measurements? I don't want to spend $40 (testing with their cheaper fabric) and have a shirt I can't use. I am hesitant to pull the trigger.

With my first order, I gave exact measurements of the shirt I wanted and left a note in the box "these are EXACT measurements, please account for any shrinkage in your fabrics." The shirt I received was absolutely spot on. I have probably washed the shirt 5 times since receiving it and it has not shrunk at all. They claim the fabric is pre-shrunk and as far as I can tell this is true. Granted, this was not a high-end fabric and I wash my dress shirts on delicate in cold water, hang to dry. Your results may vary based on your fabric selection or wash technique.

No problems at all with shrinkage. I lightly machine dried it twice, but now hang dry (clothes last longer when they don't get massacred in a drier every time.) They are supposed to take any inherent shrinkage into account when cutting the shirt out. This would probably differ from one cloth to the next, even if "pre-shrunk."
