Are you kidding? In the body, this is nearly skintight. If you look at the shot where I am holding my arms up, this should be apparent. I always want my shirts to fit as slim as possible, but I still need to be able to move.

I do agree with the earlier post that the arms can probably be slimmed down on future orders. It may be difficult to tell from the photos but the armholes are pretty tight already. I'm not sure there's much room to go any smaller there.

My first Modern Tailor shirt arrived today (this is my first MTM shirt order). I used the body measurements - I know everyone says to use shirt measurements but all shirts fit me like a tent so it just wouldn't work. Surprisingly, I was quite happy with most of the measurements. The shirt fits great through the chest/waist/hips. The shoulder and sleeve length also are great fits. I might tweak them slightly on subsequent orders but they are well within the acceptable range. However, the measurements for the collar and cuffs seem way off. I gave them a 15.25 collar and my measurement on the shirt is 15.75. I'm not sure if they intentionally padded that number - they shouldn't have since the body measurement requires you to place two fingers inside the measuring tape. And the cuffs were off by 1.5 - 2 inches! I am definitely disappointed with the collar and cuff measurements, but the rest of my body measurements were implemented quite well by Modern Tailor. Update: MT agreed to do a 2nd trial shirt for me because of the mix-up on the collar and cuff measurements. I was under the impression that no padding would be added for these(I e-mailed them to ask this) so I think my problem stems from there.

Dave, I received a pm from Emma and just e-mailed your site about my concerns. Thanks.

I'm puzzled as to why ModernTailor doesn't have more photos of finished shirts made out of their fabrics. I recently ordered a couple shirts and they emailed me photos once they were finished, yet when you look at those fabrics on their site, there are no photos available. In other words, the issue is not that they haven't made shirts in those fabrics, or that people chose not to share pictures.

Am I the only one who is much more hesitant to buy a shirt when all I can see is the little fabric picture? I imagine they must be losing so much business by not having more photos. Also, having a feature like the one MyTailor has, where you can actually see what the shirt would look like, would be really tremendous and cause me and I'm sure others to buy more shirts.

Go to the shirt gallery and enter the fabric number into the search box, rather than looking directly at the fabrics and hoping they have a picture there. You will find that often times the shirts do exist in the gallery, but they just aren't properly linked to the particular fabrics in the fabric selection page. Whenever i find a fabric i like that doesn't have any shirt sample pics I just copy the fabric number, and search for it in the shirt gallery. Hope that helps somewhat.

You should have multiple regression models between your 8 parameters, and also, you should NOT give the customer more options. For example, we dont really need to specify the length of the shirt. You are just introducing the opportunity to make an error for this. We DON'T need to specifiy the shirt length. All men do not care for the differences between a shirt 31" or 33".

If you ask what length our shirt should be, we may accidentally put 25", which is what I did when I first got my shirt.

Finally, my dress shirts are in different lengths - slightly. I don't notice the differences in lengths, and I'm not particular for the lengths, just as long as it tucks in.

Should you be able to choose which fabric you want, or is there too much room for error there as well?

Just because you can't handle it doesn't mean the rest of us can't.

I need to specify the length of my shirt. Maybe you should double check your measurements, but hey, it's your money.

Luckily most people aren't as stupid as you.

I don't know you, but your post is quite irritating.

Perhaps you are not cut out for made-to-measure clothing. If you don't care about the difference between 31" and 33" then why are you paying a (slight) premium to have shirts made custom?

If I wanted a standard size shirt, with someone's "typical" length, I'd buy off the rack. Length of the shirt is actually one of the major issues I have because I'm tall.

I want to thank everyone for their thoughtful posts regarding custom shirts and the ordering process. Much like the feedback on the lack of high quality pants which led to Ed's Panta, I too will be venturing into the clothing business in the shirt making realm.

Our website will feature nothing more than an order button because, as our slogan states, 'the customer is not to be trusted'. We benchmarked a popular shirtmaker in Asia that begins with 'J' on their delivery time and are happy to offer 3-64 weeks delivery. Good luck!
