post #121 of 3277
I just received my first Modern Tailor "trial" shirt, and I am not very happy with the results. Fit issues aside, there are some obvious construction problems. The sleeve is twisted and it shows a lot near the cuff pleat. Also, the collar curls a lot. These photos are taken after one wash (hang dry).

Other issues are my fault. The chest is too tight. It probably needs an extra two inches. Does anyone else have any comments on the fit or construction? I'd be willing to try them again if the sleeve and collar issues are fixed. This is the medium cutaway collar (stiff).

Well, you need to iron.

Fit could be worked on but it's not a bad start.

Slim down the body and arms slightly, take better pictures... can't really tell what's going on with the arm twist.

I have a feeling that you used the "Clothes Measurements" and not the "Body Measurements". Your shirt looks good, but the shoulders and arms area is a little loose.

Njeremy, the majority opinion here -- as well as that of moderntailor -- is that the shirt measurements (when taking from a properly fitting shirt) are far superior to body measurements. Take the advice quoted above with a grain of salt... but to each his own i suppose.

I agree -- I measured my best fitting shirt and I don't plan on doing body measurements. I suppose I agree that the bicep measurement could come down a bit. But the chest doesn't leave enough room for full movement. It needs an extra inch or two. I think the waist is good. Does anyone have suggestions on the weird sleeve twist or the collar curling?

Hi Njeremy:
Thanks for the candid feedback. I know it is hard to believe that online tailoring could work, but we have been in honest business for years now, we have 98% customer satisfaction rating, we're working on more service improvements. Your first trial shirt may not have been a great one, but I want to guarantee that I and our people are prepared to work with you. We would like to think that our processes are improving continuously, our staff are becoming better and our fabrics and workmanship are of reasonable quality. We want to sustain our operations by providing our customers with the best possible prices for labor and materials without compromising fabric and craftsmanship quality. To give you an example, our production lead time is now just 5 days (average) compared to 14 days a few months ago. We have also improved our back office reporting system so that our managers are aware of the production stages of each item ordered. We have also increased our fabric collection to more than 1000 fabrics, sourcing fabrics from the best suppliers in Europe and China. We are committed to make this online custom tailoring process work for you. Online tailoring doesn't have the traditional "˜fitting sessions' which is the advantage with brick and mortar tailoring shops. Several online tailors, just like local tailors, would have their own tailoring styles. All things considered, the savings you would make, after the initial trial and error process; the options and the flexibility of style, would be worth the investment in the long run.
You may email us at sales@moderntailor.com to get this issue sorted.

Moderntailor sent me a photo of the shirt they just made up for me so I can ogle it while it's on its way to me! Photo could probably use a good white-balance, but a nice touch nonetheless! Gotta say I'm very pleased with the results, customer service, and turnaround time so far. I went with the uni stripe in the cotton/poly blend since I'm still working out the finer points of my measurements so I figured I'd experiment with cheap fabric. Just a few years ago people were warning that Asian MTM was a toss-up both with results and with delivery time. People were saying expect 6 weeks or more. Moderntailor seems to have gotten on top of both of these. So far my results have been consistent with what I ordered, and have arrived speedily to boot.

Do they match the pattern where the shoulders meet the sleeves?

Did you request that they remove the ginormous logo/tag or is this pre tagged?

That's a standard option that you can select or de-select in the ordering process.

Is that service provided at an additional cost or for free?

Thank you!
