Modern Tailor.com review - my experience - Page 34

post #496 of 680
Moved from another thread: Here is my first trial shirt from modern tailor, just received it today. The turn around time is fast - 11 days in total. I chose the 20 dollars introduction shirt plus some coupon, so the total cost is 11 dollars (with MOP buttons). Overall, I am satisfied with the result. Need to see how it shrink coz this one is a little bit tight right now I consider the following improvement areas: 1. Length is too short. Need longer for easy tuck (maybe 1or 2 inch) 2. The waist is slightly narrow. I still can move around freely. (maybe half inch or one inch) 3. The chest is narrow, need to see how the shrinkage may cause the problem. It will make wearing an undershirt snug. Right now I can move easily. (maybe another half inch increase) 4. I would like to have my sleeve length lengthened by another half an inch. I do have very short arms. Otherwise, I am pretty happy. I definitely don't need send it to tailor. Your critiques are appreciated so that I can make my next serious purchase. Sorry for the phone pic quality.

It's not bad. Next time make the armhole and bicep measurements smaller. I would make the waist measurement maybe an inch larger also. See how it goes after washing it. Resist the urge to tumble dry it.

You want to lengthen the sleeves?!? They're already bunching up because they're too long. Tighten the armhole up a lot. The shoulders look at least 1/2" too big on each side - way too much sloping.

OK. I agree with the armhole. I think shoulders are not bad. Maybe they will shrink after the wash. I will post a post-wash pic later.

Too much waist suppression... I've ordered a shirt like that myself and it's still in the mail. I think I've made the same mistake with the waist.

I will tuck the shirt in, I don't think suppression is a big issue although I do want to make the waist looser next time.

Sleeves are a little long, and thats a LOT of waist suppression. And you have darts in the back. No reason to get darts. Its kind of feminine imho. Sorry if that stings, its just one person's opinion on the internet. Yeah, either reduce the chest measurement or increase the waist measurement. Either will bring the shirt into proportion.

Just to emphasize: that's indeed just one opinion. I do not hold strong views either way, but I think you'll find that there are plenty of SF members with darts, some from the better shitmakers.

Actually I was referring to the shirt as a whole, not darts in general.

OIC; you think the shirt has an overall feminine look? That must be helpful feedback for the OP.

It seems so. But I think it depends on the jacket sleeves length.

I believe he's saying that the shirt looks feminine because it's very very form-fitting, which is not a typical trait in men's dresswear.

But I hope the customers understand that online tailoring doesn't have 'fitting' sessions like local tailoring shops. Just like different tailors working at local shops, our tailors also have their own styles. We're trying our best to re-train our tailors to have more standard styles. We as a company are revamping our production processes to ensure customers will be more pleased with the fit in the future. We are now offering 19.95 trial shirts for those who want to get their measurements properly. We are serious about this tailoring business. We value the trust you give.

That 19.95 trial shirt is a great deal! What exactly constitutes a trial shirt? Obviously the first shirt ever ordered; beyond that, are adjustments (e.g. lengthen body 1") considered a trial shirt?

Update to cuff bubbles - received remade cuffs today. Only sent two shirts back. Problem is fixed. Will give them a wash and iron tomorrow. As for the missing tie - still waiting. In the meain time I placed about 4 additional orders after this one and all seem in order. Hopefully signs of improvements in quality.

I have received the re-orders except for the replacement tie that they promise to send. MT remade the 3 shirts in question.

The good: split-yoke problem fixed. Fabric aligned.

The bad: I have washed the shirts multiple times (cold water - delicate cycle or hand washed, line dry always and iron) to see if it would address the issues with the shirts. Unfortunately not - all 3 shirts have cuff fusing problem - bubbles that I can't remove/iron-out. I have now contacted MT to see what they say. Furthermore, during the recent sale I ordered two more shirts - one was as ordered with no quality issues but the other one was made with a totally different fabric from what I ordered

For the shirts that have worked out they are great plus I like MT's selection of fabrics. Should I give up on MT?
