post #1156 of 3285
Got an email and they seem to have straightened out my problem. I should be getting my shirts in time as they just arrived in the USA. Odd shipping problem. It was out of MT's control. They were quick in responding.

No offense to anybody, but almost all MT shirts that you guys are posting doesn't look that great. As a matter of fact, I don't think I've ever been impressed with a single MT shirt that anyone has posted here. Most just look so loose, baggy, and billowy. Just my 2 cents. myke

Depends on how you order them. Mine fit fine. Here's an example, I don't have a better one. Mind you, that was after about 3 hours of wearing it. And one of my earlier orders (pic from WAYWRT):

You can't fault MT for that. Most who order pick the measurements of the shirt, and MT just makes to the customer's specifications.

A lot of this has to do with different tastes. I have seen how you wear your shirts, and they are extremely slim. For my tastes, and my intended purpose, I like something a little fuller.

I used to be on a quest for the "perfect" fitting shirt, but I found the slimmer the shirt got, the less comfortable I felt.

Those are probably the first decent shirts I've seen to have come from MT.

I understand people have different tastes, and I don't expect everybody to wear their shirts as fitted as I do.

But... most of the shirts I've seen posted look like billowing tents, and the posters are usually complaining on how MT didn't get them right.

I love MT. They are on par with B&S and Mabitex in terms of bang for the buck. And don't forget about their excellent customer service. Most people who post here are those who seek guidance on how to improve their test shirts. My first two shirts also came out imperfect. Once people get their measurements right, they have no need to post in this thread anymore.

I've seen your shirts, they fit great. I've had a few TM Lewin shirts myself, but I got rid of them after discovering Modern Tailor. I have no desire to order shirts from any place else, because first of all, the fit is unparalleled and second, I can choose whatever styling I desire. Also, buying a shirt and then altering it costs more and takes more time than making it right the first time. And to me, armholes is the most important measurement which cannot be tailored.

If you ever decide to try their services, you are welcome to try one of my shirts on and adjust the measurements accordingly. We should be of similar size. I've done this with two of my friends and their first shirts came out almost perfectly. I live in Los Angeles.

I've ordered over 10 shirts and haven't had issues with fit until my last order.
The issue I had was regarding construction quality, which may be from just one of the many shirtmakers, but nonetheless discouraging.
Sure, MT can make a great shirt for you if you have your measurements dialed in already.
But, you also run the risk of getting one of their less capable shirtmakers that will send you an unwearable shirt.
One bad experience doesn't speak for everybody though...

What I meant was regarding shirt fit. Of course, quality and communication issues come up. But generally, once the fit is right, you won't see any more tent-like shirts.

ATTN: MODERN TAILOR
I started a thread about this on the Men's Clothing forum, but it seems like I should go straight to the source (or, rather, one of them).

Question: Why to made-to-measure shirt companies include a cloth bag, sized to fit one folded shirt, with their orders? The introductory shirt that I ordered from you (which fits great, by the way) came with a folded up bag large enough to hold the shirt, but not much else. Does anyone need a bag to carry one shirt? It seems superfluous, and I'd rather see you eliminate the cost and the waste. Or is there a purpose that I'm missing?

We sorted it out by adding 'NO REPLY' on the sender field - each customer who receives emails which do not need a reply will have a 'no-reply' sender name.

You received my package 26 days ago, how much longer do you think you will need in order to "follow up on it?"

After ordering 40+ shirts from you, one would think that I would receive a timely response.

Hi Harley, I have been coordinating with Belle and Anne on your issue. May I just ask? do you have the tracking # of your package to us? I'll be checking on it personally.
Thank you ...

I'm sure you don't want that.

I have had no problems with your turnaround time on my orders or on your quality, but all that is for naught if you won't communicate timely.


Absolutely. We do not want any customer feeling they have been ignored or taking for granted. We know our business is very much supported by our customers.

And can someone please tell if there is coupon for January or a permanent one, thanks.

Shirts ordered around Chinese new year period would be finished 4 to 5 weeks = just a 2 week delay to give our tailors a rest and a holiday.
For suits / pants, production will start a bit later.
We'll not be taking in so many orders during this period so we will not be doing promotion - except on facebook.
However, backoffice end - like myself and customer service staff will be working. We'll be having promotions by end of Feb to March.

I've definitely had great experiences all round with the company. At this stage in my life, as broke as I am, I can't see myself going anywhere else for shirts. Here's a couple fit pics right out of the bag with a very sloppy tie. Although the previous poster gave me a complex that my shirts aren't slim enough, this one hasn't been washed to be fair.
