Have a tailor or even the alterations lady at the dry cleaner
take your measurements. Give her/him a nice tip.

Having said that, it looks to me like you need to add more than
two inches to the sleeves. Shirts shrink !

Good point, but I'm not blindly following the recommendations, although I know it sounds like I am. If I add two inches to the shoulders and two to the sleeves the sleeves will be more than 2 inches longer.

Yes, it's possible that when you add 2" to the shoulders, the sleeves will fit just fine.

Sleeves are pretty short, everything else looks fine though.

I would be curious to see what the shirt looks like, front and back, when it is tucked in. On you, the collar looks great.

I see you are in Philly musicguy. Try ray custom shirt maker in bala cynwyd (sp). Great place for custom shirting.

What are you talking about?

Thanks, yeah, the collar is actually not that bad. I wore it today tucked in with the sleeves rolled up. It looks and felt really good. I will wash and hang dry it before I decide to tweak the measurements.

Thanks for the recommendation. I've heard of the place and will keep it in mind.

..though I doubt they'd have any idea what they were doing.

Musicguy,
What fabric code is that white shirt on the moderntailor site?
post #25 of 51

The fabric is Small White herringbone / R46

I was surprised at how nice the fabric is. I has a beautiful lustre and isn't too thin. I don't think the fabric is available anymore though.

I think it is the shoulder that is a bit too short?? If that's the case, it will also make the sleeves looks short even though it's the right length??

Yeah I agree, but the shoulders aren't that small. I wore the shirt with the sleeves rolled up and I've come to the conclusion that the shoulders, waist and sleeves are the only things that really need to be let out. The rest is fine. Of course, this is before I washed it, so I'll probably add a bit to all the measurements except the neck and length to allow for shrinkage.

Are the shoulders really much too narrow? Because of the low resolution of the photo and the folds of cloth falling around the ends of the OP's shoulder, it's difficult to tell where precisely the shoulder seam meets the armscye, but it looks to be more or less over the acromioclavicular joint. I take that to be "the end of the shoulder", which I've always heard is the proper place for the seam to end. A quick survey: should the shoulder seam end before it starts to fall down the arm, or should it in fact fall off the shoulder just a bit?

The best appointed in the WAYWRN thread are generally jacketed"”will someone who believes he has a particularly well fitting shirt (at least in the shoulders) please post a photo showing where the end of the shoulder seam should fall?

Surely someone can relate the accumulated wisdom/groupthink on shoulder-seam endpoints. ...

I think that, ideally, the shoulder seam end points should be right after where the shoulder begins to fall. On this, it's about half an inch off of both sides.
