Thanks to the Canada Post strike i finally got my order from 6 weeks ago. The wild pattern I selected is indeed wild, but completely wearable. Also I ordered pants for the first time and am very impressed. Great fit off the bat and a neat texture to the pants makes them stand out in my wardrobe of cheap pants. Though to be fair I've never had issues with pant fit so I'm not really the one to say.
I may have to try one of their suits finally. Without checking back through this monolith thread, has any one ordered one recently? After being burned by Indochino I think I'm ready to try cheapy M2M again.
Don't. It won't work. Leave cheap online MTM for shirts and pants.
Soliciting opinions on fit concerning my trial shirt from MT. Shirt has been laundered. Definitely looking to buy more. Thanks. Fabric: Plain black (P92C) with contrast collar and cuff in plain white (90036A) Collar: 2-Button Cut Away Cuff: Round cut 2 buttons Buttons: thick black MOP
This is incredibly poor design in the order process by Modern Tailor. The measurements should be selected before the "loose fit, normal fit, slim fit" options - this way those 3 could be disabled if the selected measurements are from a shirt and not body.
Even then, if selecting "slim fit" or "loose fit" with shirt measurements, the order system should be programmed to ignore that choice.
One of us is misunderstanding what he did. As far as I can tell it wasn't about slim/normal/loose fit (under section 10 of "Others", and indeed before choosing your measurements) it was rather that he clicked the wrong button on the measurement selection page.
It gives three options:
- Use existing measurements
- Add new measurements
OR (and "Or" is written in bold)
- "Pick a Standard Size"
He opted to pick a standard size not realizing that doing so would be the same as asking them to make a shirt in, well, a standard size. And then afterward they confirmed at least 3 separate times the order, each of which indicating measurements that he didn't take, indicating some other (probably "standard") size.
I don't see it as a problem in their layout at all. You're given a clear, descript bill of sale; nothing's hidden, there should be no surprises (unless the company makes a mistake, but that's a different scenario entirely).
Sorry for the rant, I just don't see how this can even be up for debate. Let's return to more "on topic" material.
i figgured i'd ask here first.
I had a shirt made a year ago. fits great. i then went and changed my profile dimensions to tweak some things, but to be honest, i'm pertty happy with the original. Would Modern Tailor have the original measurments on file from my previous order do you think?

NakedTruth - you look like a priest in that shirt.
I admit the collar is reminiscent of the banded "pontiff" collar my brother wears to work... in the church. I bet it would irritate him to no end if he saw me sitting in a pew with this shirt on. I'm hoping a well-chosen tie will avoid such comparisons in general; I just thought I would add some whimsy to a "trial" shirt. How's the fit look? I need more room in the elbow to avoid the look of accordion arms.
I'm struggling to think of a tie that would work with this shirt....but then again I'm not a fan of black shirts to begin with. It's hard to comment on the fit, again with a black shirt I can't really tell how tight or loose it is in some areas. One thing I noticed is that you have a serious batwing problem that a lot of people seemed to be having a few pages back in this thread. When you raise your arms, the shoulders are pointing straight up...maybe you need to reduce the yoke measurement.
So my blue linen shirt arrived today- I'm very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the linen fabric. It's not as thin as I thought it'd be, which is good. The measurements turned out exactly how I wanted and for sure, I will be ordering another linen
(Sorry, no pics at the moment)
Got my trial shirt today. Went with the blue oxford (K32). It seems like a very versatile fabric; I can see me wearing this shirt either with a suit or as a more casual shirt. The MOP buttons are lovely and the fabric itself is better quality that I was expecting. Overall, I'm quite happy with the fit and the service from MT; my order took about 2 weeks to come through. I haven't laundered it yet and will post follow-up fit pics after laundering. That said, if anyone has any suggestions as to how the fit could be improved, that would be great.
Tone76; I would tighten the shirt cuffs and maybe very slightly reduce the yoke measurement. (The shoulder seams appear to be ever-so-slightly too far apart)
Thanks for that, John. That confirms some of my own thoughts, being:
- the cuffs/sleeves may need to be slimmed down slightly
- the yoke might be about 5mm or so too big (there's not a lot in it, but it does feel just a tad too long).
- the armholes may be a little too low (reducing the circumference of the sleeves may fix this)
- the neck might also be a little too big as well (again, we're talking maybe a few mm)
For what it's worth, I've laundered the shirt and it doesn't appear to have shrunk at all. I'll post some fit photos soon. Either way, I'm certainly going to use MT in future. I think I'll just order one shirt at a time until I get the perfect fit.
I recently noticed that 1-2cm of the stitching on the sleeve of one of the arms on a shirt that I ordered back in late May had come undone. I sent MT a couple of pics to show this, and within the hour they offered me a whole new shirt. My tailor reckons he can sort out the errant stitching, plus I've got another completely different shirt on the way now, and I think that's great customer service.

I want to say people here reported that MT got the bat wing issue resolved. In a much older portion of this thread I read a discussion concerning the angle of the sleeves. Is that the cause of the bat wings or is it simply the yoke? I wonder if it's because I chose "sloped shoulders" in the body shape questionnaire.
