post #1471 of 3278
I just received my test shirt today and I must say I'm pretty impressed. I pulled it out of the package already assuming it wasn't going to fit but it did. The only issue I notice is if I reach my arms forward like I'm giving a hug it feels tight in the back. Also, when I lift my arms up the shoulders lift up as well. Any idea whats causing this? I'm going to try and get a few pics shortly. Nice work Modern Tailor!!

Washed the shirt - no shrinking issues to report. I agree with some of the comments that I've seen that the cuffs and collar are very stiff - not sure what's up with that.

I ordered the thick MOP buttons - they are great, but it's a little snug getting them through the button holes - wish they would have given me some more clearance.

Wore the shirt today - at least 5 or 6 comments from co-workers. I'd expect some orders are on the way!

I definitely would like to order more, but I take it they purposely offer no plain white fabrics below $60?

They do on occasion. I complained quite severely about the lack of 100 count white fabrics and was finally able to order a couple about a month ago, but that particular fabric (P325) is no longer available at all. Generally there is a real lack of white fabrics - I just checked and find only one between $69 and $99 with a thread count of 100 or higher, and it's easy care (so either treated with some nasty chemical, or a sweaty synthetic).

Was wondering if it is possible to request a slightly longer collar point to avoid the issue of the 'floating' collar? I have tried the cut away collar in large so far and find that the collar points don't quite touch the shirt, but rather sit there raised.

Hey guys, In the below picture is the rolling/folding behind the arm cause by the yoke or chest measurement being too big or does arm hole have something to do with it? Mine does something similar between the shoulder seem and yoke when my shoulders are back, I'm guessing this means the yoke is a bit too big? It does this between 1/4-1/2" both sides, would taking 1/2-1" off the yoke measurement be the best approach to fix this?

The yoke/shoulder is much too large on this shirt, which is causing the problem you refer to, I think.

You can. That's what I do. I got a shirt made with cut-away collar with measurements of medium classic collar (5mm lower height and 5mm longer point) and all is fine.

You have any pics of this collar?

Just received my blue oxford trial shirt today. The fit is pretty good, although I will be making small adjustments if I order a second or third shirts.

On the facebook, it says the fabric is 2-ply and it was originally $69. Well, i don't know what makes a good fabric, it doesn't feel as smooth as my other RTW shirts (macy's stuff..not high end). I wonder if I order other $59 to $89 range shirts, will I be seeing better fabric? I know the fit is going to be good, now I need the fabric to coordinate.

It's an oxford, you probably shouldn't expect it to be smooth.

I think in general the quality of their fabrics is quite good. I always go for the 2-ply sale fabrics in that price range and have found almost all of them to be very nice. I wouldn't judge by the trial fabric.

Even though 2ply and pure cotton? So oxford just feels cheap no matter what?

"Smooth" and "expensive" are not synonymous in the world of shirt fabrics. Your assumptions are flawed.
