Did you wash the shirt in hot water and/or dry in the dryer?

Dress shirts should be washed on cold or warm and hung to air dry to maximize longevity.

Are you this combative in real life or are you strictly an E-thug?

No idea what causes that, but I'd wet the collar, stretch it, let it dry and see if that helps. If not, send it back.

^^ second that, if that dosn't work maybe try going to a dry cleaners and asking them not to clean it but just press the collar with their industrial press, the added pressure may resolve the bubbling, but i would shoot an email with pics to moderntailor, there customer service is very good, you may get a full credit for another shirt with some luck.

Wow, are you this sensitive in real life? For the record, I am equally "combative" in real life, if you can call it that.

I have recently placed my 3rd order with MT for 5 shirts. This time with the expedite option (shirts completed in 3 working days). Order on the 9th (Sunday). Order status says completed yesterday 16th. As of today still have not shipped. I would have thought my shirts would have been completed by the 13th. Only non-standard shirt options was to reduce the french cuff size. Anyone else use the expedite option?

Ordered my first MT shirt on May 1 and it arrived last Friday (but too late to pick it up at the post office), so a total of 13 days from start to finish. Just got it from the post office this morning.

Working right now, so I can't try it on. Looks good on cursory inspection. Seems like all my requests have been met. Fabric seems pretty good.

I will report back on overall fit and quality when I have a chance to wash and press it.

Haha, I just picture you screaming at the flat screen and throwing your mouse after every poast.

I got a twill striped shirt and MT made it up diagonally striped.

The striped fabrics on their Web site are all photographed so the stripes run diagonal in the images but I'm assuming unless you specify anything else they make the shirt with vertical stripes.

The reason I'm asking is there seem to be tailors who can't do diagonally-striped shirts unless the cloth itself is diagonally-striped to begin with (e.g. Sam's in HKG).

I've got a question about the 'gauntlet' or sleeve placket button - sorry if it's been asked before... Has anyone ever requested a specific measurement for the mid-forearm, or where the gauntlet button sits?

I ask because I like to be able to leave this button done up for tension for the warm/busy/dirty occasions at work where I have to roll up my sleeves... if the circumference of the sleeve at this point is too large, even by a small amount, it just slides down and I have to roll the sleeve multiple times, which I don't like doing.

So has anyone ever requested this extra measurement? I was thinking that on my next shirt I might try...

Zap them an e-mail. I provided the measurements of where I wanted my second button placed, as I like a very high second button to wear an open collar but still not show chest, and they measured it to a T. I'd imagine you should be more than able to provide arm circumference measurements.

Heck - one of our very own members designed the schematics for their round cut portofino!

If you use fedex/ups/dhl, I don't believe they deliver to a PO BOX? Just wondering, the number of days it takes to deliver the shirts would depend on what country you're located and what method of shipping you choose. I've gotten my shirt in 4 days from the time they delivered it from China in USA.
