There are some really great 100% cotton fabrics on sale right now at 39.99.
I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these:

Just got my fit shirt in - going to wash and then post fit pics for comment before doing some ordering.

What's the nicest pique white fabric they have?

The dress shirts are really nice.

has any one done a M2M suit at moderntailor.com? or any other site to recommend? does anyone know of a good M2M site that also has good selections of linen fabrics?

Just realized I have ordered something like 25 shirts from MT in two and a half years. One dud out of the bunch, that they remade for me. I do have two shirts that my wife hates fwiw.....one is red gingham that she calls my "picnic table shirt". I guess i have been lucky.

Any new voucher codes out there? Am on the fence with another order and a 20% could easily sway me! nod[1].gif

I realized this weekend that the MOP buttons on my trial shirt are chipping, and one is cracked in half but still held in place by the stitching. These are the thicker MOP buttons; the shirt is about a month old.

I've got lots of shirts w/ MOP buttons and I've never had any chip or crack. I'm treating this the same as the others--machine wash and then air dry--anybody else had this experience?

The measurements of the shirt were carried out dutifully, and I got minimal shrinkage from the blue trial fabric, but it is too bad about these buttons.

Has anyone tried their short-sleeved shirts? I could use a few summer sport shirts.

I've ordered several shirts from MT and noticed this too.

I guess their supply of MOP buttons is just more fragile than most.

I wish they would do some inexpensive hand rolled silk pocket squares - I get tired for hunting for eBay deals.

On my latest shirt, a piece of one of the MOP buttons chipped off while I was buttoning it up after two washes. I'll probably stick with the standard buttons from now on.

 

ETA - these were the thick MOP buttons.

I've got a number of shirts with the thin MOP buttons - no issues. I have one shirt with the thick MOP buttons - one button chipped the first time I buttoned it.

Here is my test shirt (man that fabric sucks) after one wash.

So the things I already am thinking: add a bit in through the body (maybe another 1/2 inch across the hole thing); I'll make the cuffs a bit larger as well so they fall a bit better.

But the bunching near the shoulders on the front shot and the upper back look like a mess. How do I fix this?

Larger armhole, I suspect.
