I feel like I'm in good company if CDFS also bought this fabric, but this is the one I was referring to. It's thick and hot and sticky and yuck. Emma, please tell us if your newer linens are like this. I will say that I only bought the shirt for the Calgary Stampede. I'd never wear it otherwise.

P325 was a good white twill. Of course, they don't stock it anymore. Emma, could you please do something about this? You need to try to keep staple fabrics in stock. How can I recommend them if you don't have them?

Yeah, I kept looking at the example shirts, and whenever I saw a white fabric I liked it was inevitably out of stock. It would be nice if they incorporated some way to show you similar fabrics after a stock runs out. I also wish they displayed the fabric weight more prominently.

I second the last two posts. This is the biggest (only?) problem with Modern Tailor at the moment.

I'm afraid to buy any fabric because of lack of weight anyone buy that sky oxford/blue pinpoint/white linen?

Just received a shirt, and it has the same problem with the shoulders which I've seen many posts about. Here is a blog post of pictures of the problem, and a solution for the problem: (I am not affiliated with this blog in any way) http://thesilentist.tumblr.com/post/...uction-problem ModernTailor, please take a look!! Summary: "The manufacturer basically put the sleeves on too extreme of an angle and it’ll dramatically affect your range of motion even if you raise your arms up slightly." This problem is clearly the result of the way your tailors are putting the shirts together. It should be easy to fix on your end and I'm surprised it hasn't been addressed yet.

The sleeve isn't "put on" at an angle; the angle results from the shape of the sleeve and its cap, in relation to the size of the armhole. I'm sure someone who actually drafts shirt patterns could tell you more, but my understanding is that if you want a fitted shirt, you're going to end up with a "lower" sleeve angle like that moderntailor shirt.

Wearing it takes some fortitude.

I appreciate the reply, you certainly seem to have more of an idea about this than I do.

Having said that, I have shirts from Topman which fit slimmer than my ModernTailor shirt and none of them have the same problem around the shoulders. Maybe the sleeve angle isn't the issue at all then?

Yes, they were doing a better job on this when I pointed it out a few months ago, but seem to have given up. The consistent lack of plain white 100 count fabrics is disappointing.

Google sleeve cap height or have a look here.

I did the same (based on your advice, I think), and it helped. I also made the sleeves a lot longer and it also helped because the longer sleeves allow for more motion before they pull on the body when I raise my arms.

Can anyone comment on the color of their plain white plastic buttons?

I have been using their MOP buttons, but they are so yellow that they just look really bad, as in this showcase photo: http://moderntailor.com/showcase/html/169917.html.

I was thinking of switching to plastic ones, but these "white" buttons look yellow too: http://moderntailor.com/showcase/html/182111.html

I can confirm that their white plastic buttons appear yellow. Just received some of them on a shirt a day or two ago.
