post #2821 of 3278

Hello, I have a few questions about taking measurements from existing shirts.

 

In the first image which is the correct way of measuring the half-armhole, the red or green arrow? I am aware that it has to be a curved measurement, it is just the placement that I need help on.

 

 

Armhole

 

 

 

The second question may seem slightly pedantic but please bear with me. In the attached image which is the correct way of measuring from left to right seams? The red arrow includes both seams and adds 2cm to the measurement while the green arrow stops at the beginning of each seam.

 

 

Seams

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Yes you can easily create an order by duplicating the shirt.  Please follow this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7oHcOSF5bA&list=UUs-35bptIYgsRhtrVFb4fhg&index=7&feature=plcp

Also you may order from MT collection http://moderntailor.com/moderntailor - you just have to enter your measurements (you'd need to be logged in to order).

Obviously the red arrow in both cases, that is the arrow which indicates half the actual circumference of that part of the garment. I don't know what could possibly make you think the green arrows could be correct, especially in the case of the arm-hole.

I have NO idea why the guy above is being so rude, but yes, it's the red arrow in both cases. Like he said, you're trying to get half of the measurement of the garment at those points, not seam measurements.

Thanks for the clarification.

I didn't find it rude. They are probably quite silly questions to someone experienced with cloth measurements. However I thought it best to be sure rather than order a shirt with incorrect dimensions. Thanks.

Not a silly question at all.  It is something I wondered myself when ordering a shirt.  The directions clearly state to measure form seam to seam.  The green arrows would be perfectly valid if you were to follow the directions literally.

Does MT allow you to alter the width of French cuffs, mainly the part that hangs under your hand where you put the cuff link? Because on most French cuff shirts I find that part to be absolutely huge compared to my skinny wrists so it looks disproportionate. Or should I just give up on French cuffs altogether?

Yes, you specify the size of the cuff.

I like to get some opinions on the fit of my Modern Tailor trial shirt. I used body measurements and I am quite happy with the result. I know the sleeves are too short and there seems to be too much fabric around my lower back when the shirt is tucked in. What could I change to prevent this? The shirt is going to be worn tucked in.

This is my first MT shirt. Is there anything that should be changed for the next order?

Is that the large cutaway collar?

I bought two shirts last month with the thick mother of pearl buttons and:

1) They're no longer thick, like they used to be, and now they're laminated.

2) I've had five buttons chip in the washer, and one split in half and break off.

When did they start to cut the corner on button quality?

This is the $20 trial shirt.  Material is fine for the price, but not better than that.  This is my first MTM shirt, and while it isn't perfect, it's better than anything I can find OTR.  Wasn't the complete disaster I was expecting.  :)

 

Any thoughts on what to change?
