Received my second shirt yesterday. Both the first and second shirt took about 10 days from ordering to shipping to delivery to North America. Very respectable.

In case anyone is interested, the collar is Cut Away (Back Height 4.8 cm, collar point 8.5 cm), and below is their website's stock pic:

Nice! I just upped my collar from the medium to the large (8.5cm) on my last order, looks just right icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

What fabric number is this?

Do you know when these might be available?  I'm starting a new job in a month with a conservative dress code so I'd like to order a bunch of white shirts.

It is fabric # No.: 636-5 Poly/Cotton blend. I wanted something that wrinkle less and don't shrink, plus I am still in the trial phase, so I picked something that costed less.

I am a big fan of the tall collar. My first one was the two-button Italian collar but they are a pain to button up (the buttons are smaller than the usual collar button I am accustomed to.

The large cut-away on this is quite nice.

Next time, I will try the one-button Italian collar.

Cool, I am awaiting delivery of that same 'white plain' and the 'white 0640' - I already have two other $60 fabrics and they are both great. I am looking to see which one of the whites I like the most and will probably get a couple more to stock out the beater white business shirts...

I've only purchased 100% cotton shirts from Modern Tailor. Anyone care to comment on the Polyster/Cotton shirts?

 

 

Also, a big thank you to the customer service department. Had a mix-up of sorts on an order I placed but things were remedied very quickly.

I'd stick with 100% cotton, why go with poly for smth that will be in direct contact with your skin pretty much all the time?

Just ordered my second shirt today after a long, multi-week process ordering a shirt according to the measurements on their website, having it come out poorly, and then realizing it is due to the inaccuracy of their measurements. Specifically, like the poster above, the armhole was too small causing the arms of the shirt to be comically tight and completely unwearable. I then sent them a sample which they matched pretty well. If you have a well-fitting shirt, I would definitely recommend this route, as they got most of it right. After washing though, the armhole and collar turned out to be a little snug, so I adjusted the measurements accordingly with this shirt (the discounted blue gingham).

 

Overall, though, I'm happy with the quality of the first shirt and will be a heavy buyer if they can show consistency from shirt to shirt once I get my fit dialed in. Their customer service has been helpful, too.

 

As a request/suggestion for those reps who read this thread - Would love to see a nice black watch pattern come in, if at all possible. A forum discount would be much appreciated too.

I've got a $25 coupon, not sure if it's transferrable, but if someone wants it... I'd totally use it but I've switched to real MTM. First user with over 50 posts to PM me gets the code. Expires Jan 11, 2012.

edit:

Code's been spoken for.

Spread collar, blue trial fabric, gray buttons.
I had a borrelli shirt that almost fit me that I measured and gave them some adjusted measurements based off that short.

Bunching under armpits -- is the armhole too small?

Is it just me? But think that you're flexing your biceps and the shirts tightens around it and your lower arm, it's too small? Since that is definitively what's going to happen when you wear that shirt. It also seems too tight around the waist, I imagine that you're sitting down and got no space around the stomach.

How is the quality of the shirt compared to TM Lewin?
