This is the "test" shirt - the first of an order of four. It was sent for my wear and evaluation so that any adjustments that may be needed can be incorporated into the remaining three shirts in the order. Wearing it for the second time today, I don't think I'll have anything changed on the rest of the order. They took accurate measurements and incorporated all of the detail requests I had. Very nice.
I'm also impressed with the apparent quality. Everything about the shirt indicates that it is well made. Shockingly well made for the $75 I paid. Nice fabric, sturdy single-needle seams, MoP buttons, split yoke, unlined collar and cuffs. I'm a fan.
I know Will from ASW uses Hemrajani; do others agree that they are one hell of a good deal?
Did you get measured by Alberto Khem on his recent visit to DC? I also just received my test shirt about a week ago, after getting measured a month ago at the Capitol Hilton. I pretty much agree with everything you say.

Is there some aspect of the measurement process (online, that is) that I'm missing with My Tailor, or do they naturally cut a nice high arm hole? Or did you get fitted in person? (I know I need to do this eventually, probably this year.) Modern definitely has a superior fabric selection online.
I brought one of my fav fitting shirts to the fitting session and the shirt I received had pretty much the same measurements for the armghole (high). If you can't specify the armhole measurements online, I'm sure you could email or call them and do so.
I have yet to see any pictures of a MyTailor suit or SC, if anyone has any please post! Based on my positive shirt experience, I might consider something in the future.
