I have yet to see a button-down collar from MT that wasn't lopsided.

Isn't there a new "airmail" option $7/shirt? I don't see that option when I go to checkout page.

Hello, we have disabled the option after trial run as most of the customers still opted for EMS - Airmail takes 30 days and there is no resource for tracking it unlike ems (international post).

We might study the option again if it has more positive results

The shoulder seams on my shirt hang down onto my arms (they are too wide). The rest of the measurements are perfect though. If I reduce the yoke measurement to take care of this problem, what other measurements will be affected and is there any way of knowing how much to alter them so that I don't mess up the fit of the shirt?

I don't know, but if you contact Modern Tailor they can help you with this. I've even sent them pictures for their master tailor to comment on. Their customer service, as had been said many times before, is amazing.

The most obvious measurements will be the sleeve lengths. Reducing the yoke will need to have each sleeve length increased by half the reduced amount each.

From what I experienced in trial and error, the armhole s will be affected slightly too. They feel tighter with a shorter yoke (that's how it feels for me anyway, have to confirm with the more knowledgeable members around here).

No pocket
No placket
Buttons - Thick buttons
Bottom - Round

Monsieur Jones - can you say which Oxford material it was and whether it's any good? I've bought a couple of blue oxfords in the past, and they have, to put it mildly, been disappointing. One was very thin, the other just "stiff". Don't recall whether they were 2-ply, but I suspect not.

Thanks!

I got the Blue Oxford / k32K Fabric. I was pleasantly suprised when i received it. I cant say that it was a stiff material. But it is "thick". But honestly that is the way i preffer my shirts. I personally hate "thin" shirts. I dont think this one is 2-ply

I'm assuming you got the trial shirt?

It is definitely thick, a little stiff for my tastes. Not stiff like my BB non-iron shirts though.

Yes I did get the Trial shirt

Can anyone provide some general guidance around the general price quality continuum for MT fabrics? Is there a general rule with regards to where the price exceeds the additional value obtained? I typically find that BB shirt prices tend to fit my budget. I am curious as to whether the quality of my shirts will suffer if I purchase the $50-$80 fabrics. Thanks for any and all experiences and guidance.

Here's a pic of one of my MT shirts where I busted a hole in the left elbow. This happened to about 5 other MT shirts as well in the last 2-3 weeks. Anybody else have any similar experiences?
