post #241 of 3285
Hey guys, just got my first shirt from moderntailor(black test shirt) and I want some advice before I order another. Here's some pictures of the shirt, gamma'd up to show the folding on how tight it is.







I pretty much cannot raise my arm higher than what it is in the picture and check(more particularly the back/shoulders) are extremely tight. Moving my hands forward pulls the shirt up and I have additional room at the top of my shoulders.

What measurements should I change? Thanks!

Question re: your mirror - Are we all looking at the stuff that flew out while flossing?

Anyone have experience with the cream colored oxford on sale? Is it white or noticeable off-white? And I guess this is a bit early, but do coupons come out each month? October is coming soon.

After a few washes, does the armhole really measure 9.4"? That seems a bit tight for someone your size. Maybe you could ask for 10" arm and 21" chest?

Attached is a photo. In addition to any other comments people might have, I am trying to figure out why it pulls uncomfortably at the front/bottom of the armhole. It is not bad when I am just walking around, but annoying when I have my arms extended forwards (like when I am typing).

Is the problem: 1) I just made the armhole much too small 2) the yoke is too small so that the armhole is too far toward the back rather than the front 3) I chose 'average' back rather than 'bent'?

I'd say try loosen up chest half to one inch and reduce armhole by a bit to deal with the pull issue. Slightly widen the yoke (and the shoulder) may help as well. Let us know how your next shirt turns out.

Just FYI, I believe the "shoulder" measure -- as opposed to the "yoke" -- is not considered unless XYZ occurs. I don't know what XYZ is, but I don't think it happens often. tl;dr: the yoke is what you should be concerned with.
