That's what I was thinking...thanks! The sleeve looks good when my arm is hanging straight down, but I do notice it pulls a bit at the elbow when I bend my arm.

I'm looking to get some staple solid blue summer shirts. Any suggestions for 2-ply shirts?

Why do I get this pulling at the armhole, specifically at the front on the bottom of the armhole? I spend most of the day on the computer, and when I reach forward I get this pulling and it's quite uncomfortable. Is there some way I can fix this? I have tried making the armhole a bit bigger and tried expanding the chest measurement. This helps a bit, but not much. Any ideas?

Any news on the fabric book?

you might need side pleats for the arm pulling

I just noticed MT made the shirt showcase sortable by fabric type. Thank you for that!

I also noticed that photos of recent linen shirts look really nice. Has anyone received a linen shirt and can you comment on the quality of the fabric? The bad reviews, from me and another poster, are based on experiences a year ago, and I'd love to order one if the linen has improved.

@dsc: I believe you need a little larger in the chest, but most importantly more fabric on the front (chest) as opposed to the back of the shirt, i.e. adjust the ratio of the total allotted chest circumference with respect to the front/rear faces of the shirt. If this is true, you may need to select a different body type, such as "Athletic". According to their e-mail support, they said this would put more fabric on the front of the chest instead of adding more batwings to the back.

I don't understand why MT makes their shirts like that--their default fit is custom tailored for the Hunchback of Notre Dame

Damn, lost track of this thread.

Thanks for the feedback GlostiX. Is the batwing effect always caused by too much material on the back? I thought it was overall circ., but please correct me if I'm wrong. If cutting down the amount of material on the back fixes that, great, but I do worry that doing this will make the pulling under the arms even worse:/

Btw, here's what the chest is like when I pull my arms back whilst standing straight:



So I reckon add 1-2cm in the chest to eliminate pulling, which in my opinion will add more to the bat wing effect:/

Regards,
dsc.

That looks just like my problem.

I'd really like a straight answer to what the "body type" measurement ends up meaning when they create the shirt. Is it right that choosing athletic will help with this by putting more fabric on the front instead of the back?

^That's what they told me, but yea if any of yall get an explicit answer to that via e-mail, share it here and we'll try to decipher it.

To whomever it may be of interest, it appears "custom fabric swatches" are now an option - at least when you're looking through fabrics there's now a button to "Add to your custom fabric swatch". It appears that only fabrics under $80 have this option available, and swatches cost $1 per fabric for shirts/pants and $5 per fabric for suits.

Thanks for the PSA.

Anyone have their linen shirts yet and can comment?
post #1755 of 3285
I'm waiting on a grey linen shirt - I'll share my thoughts when it arrives.
