I think you covered all the major bases. If the wrong section of fabric is used, sometimes the collar and cuffs look strange. I have not noticed any such issue with MT shirts. Like I said, I think they do any excellent job of matching everything up, especially considering what you pay.

As for matching the yoke to the sleeves and the shoulders, the shirt you pictured does have a split yoke, which is probably why the stripes are matched up at the sleeve. Otherwise, I think acecow could be right. I've never ordered a shirt without a split yoke, so I'm not sure what the pattern matching would like like on such a shirt.

I would love some feedback on this shirt! I gave it one wash.
My concerns are:
shoulders should be an inch smaller?
collar is a little asymmetrical.
I specified "bent back" to avoid collar gap, but that might cause some bunching near the neck.
Arms seem a little long, but they work with the blazer.

I am having some issues with them as well. I have spent near $1000 on clothing from them this year. I have a shirt that shipped on the 21st of December that has not arrived yet. Even though pants I order shipped after that and arrived two weeks ago.
The last shirt I did receive didn't fit for crap and I had to take pics of all the measurements that were off....now that fabric is sold out and they haven't responded to let me know how to get either solved. I have two orders I was ready to place but I will wait until this gets solved or cancel.

I was talking about pattern matching where the shoulders meet the sleeves. The split yoke itself will be fine. What's the point of a split yoke anyway? None of my $400 Isaia shirts have it.

My shirts have a slight taper in the side seams down to the waist, would it be too much to ask for the "V" stripes (viewed from the side of the shirt) to be aligned here ?

Same here. As seen in the pic the sleeves match the shoulders.

I made my order on Jan 4th, it arrived today surprisingly, because on the 9th i got an email that said itès been shipped, anyways I'm happy.

This is the best fitting dress shirt i've bought ever ( I don't have many),

here's some fit pics right out of the box on a cloudy day with a webcam (camera's batteries died and I wouldnt have time to charge it before the daylight is gone

First of all, I cannot see it from the pic. And secondly, as I stated before, if you try to match a pattern that falls at an angle, you can only do it perfectly in one place and it deteriorates from there. I have examples from MT in both configurations. I never get split yoke anymore.

You can make the highest quality MTM for less than $100, make 3 shirts in 2 days, reply to emails within minutes,... But, you can't make a real fabric book. Come on.

I know only a few people have requested them, but I promise you there are much more people out there who would like to PURCHASE a real fabric book.

Personally, I would be interested in buying a suit or two if I knew what the actual fabric was. Nobody is willing to put $200-$300 down for a suit, no matter how well made, without actually feeling the fabric.

Yes we recognize this need. This is our temporary solution... we are going to upgrade our swatches in future... it will have to be integrated with our backend system though so it will take a few months.

Looking forward.

To Emma and All,
Received my 2nd shirt order and am very pleased. The fabric is exactly what I wanted and the fit perfect.Thank you. Keep up the good work.

I received my first 3 shirts and am very happy (I sent a perfect fitting shirt so the duplication is perfect and the quality is great).

Here's my issue - do you guys find that the shirt cuffs are almost a bit baggy where the sleeve cuff meets the sleeve?

I don't know much (anything) about how shirts are constructed but I'm wondering if it's possible for the sleeve to taper a bit as it meets the cuff to eliminate some of the bagginess.

Anyone know if this is possible on a sleeve?

Is the entire Modern Tailor customer service department on vacation? I sent Emma a PM on Monday as there was a problem with my order but she hasn't even acknowledged my message yet. Then a couple days later, I submitted my complaint using the Contact Us page on the MT website but still haven't heard anything from them even though they are "committed to replying to all questions within 24 hours."

Yes, I find it baggy too. Too lazy to do anything about it.
