Love the fabric.

collar looks nice. I am assuming the shirt has been washed a couple of times.
you have square shoulders.
also though not really erect posture, there is excess fabric behind your neck.
these should be easy corrections.
the pictures are good so send them on.

in your case you are better off with a regular straight yoke. the bias is just going to make your problem look worse.

a split yoke is more for show in most cases. and many of the correctiosn can be made on a standard yoke.
right sleeve could be a 1/4" longer.

body seems a touch full, but that is a personal comfort issue.

^ Thanks for the feedback Carl, I will discuss this with their rep, especially the excess fabric behind the neck. Could that be the result of switching out a 15'' collar for a 14.5''?

If I do go with a straight yoke next time, should I bother having it split or is that unnecessary in my particular case? You are correct in that the shirt could be trimmed down. I thought it best to err on the safe side with a 1st shirt and slim down if necessary on subsequent orders. I figured the 1st shirt could be darted if it turned out too full, while there's not much you can do if it was too tight.

Shirt was machine washed twice in hot water.

Wes,
did you send any measurements or instructions in reference of the collar or did you just use their standard cutaway spread?

For the price, they've done a very nice job.

I selected the widest spread among their collar options: KH-14 - English Cut Away Collar 3.25 X 1.75 (White collar) and specified in the comments box that I wanted an extreme cutaway à la RLPL Keaton collar. However, I didn't have any actual measurements to give them so I don't know if what they gave me is just their standard English cutaway or if they tweaked it for me. I'd have to measure the collar to know for sure. Fwiw, I wouldn't mind a collar that's swept back even more on this particular shirt (think Udeshi collar).

JR_Rider asked them to copy the RLPL Keaton collar on his shirt and did provide measurements for it. His side-to-side comparison shot shows they did a pretty good job at that, whether the measurements are exactly the same or not.

I agree and only expect it to get better with future orders and adjustments. I have zero complaints re quality.

no that is all posture!

[u]You did not read what I wrote. in this situation a split yoke is all show!. no need for it.[/U]You are correct in that the shirt could be trimmed down.

all your choice

warm will also do the job.

Feel free to serve as my double and post fit pics of your shirt.

Coming up tonight.......

MyTailor uses MoP. They used to give you the choice of thick MoP, which I greatly preferred. Maybe a year or so ago, they stopped offering them and now only use thin ones. I was told that customers did not like the thick ones. I've only bought one batch of shirts with the thin ones, and I really don't like them. It was annoying enough to get me to start experimenting with a few different makers.

I don't mind. I'm not crazy about the super thick MOP a lot of you guys seem to favor. I'm happy as long as the buttons aren't the cheap plastic ones that yellow after a month. If you are otherwise satisfied with the shirts, it might be better just to switch out the buttons (or mail them your own buttons to use) than to start over with another shirtmaker.

3mm MOP available at no extra charge. 4mm MOP cost $12 extra.
