post #2836 of 3285

I got my trial shirt in today.  The fabric quality is pretty much what you'd expect for a $20 MTM.  The fit needs some adjustments, but is closer than anything I can find OTR.

 

Any thoughts on how to make this look better?

I just saw this post:

Has anyone tried this? It seems like it would be a relatively inexpensive way to get a shirt made out of an excellent cloth.

I haven't tried it, but I did confirm with ModernTailor that they do that.

I also emailed Acorn and got a price list. I was looking at the oxford cloths they haven, and I'd need 2 metres coming out to about $65, plus $25 for the service at MT plus $10 for shipping. It all comes up to $100 for a shirt. I'm just not ready to spend that much right now.

But having said that, I think it's a pretty good option to have.

$65? Is that including shipping?
My price list says that oxford cloths are £8.99 per metre i.e. $28 for enough for a shirt.

I've ordered 9 shirts from MT,with varying levels of success

The Good
-First and foremost, you can't beat the price
-All of my shirts have been delivered as measured. If yours don't fit, it's probably your fault.
-I've had good experience with customer service. Ine of my shirts went missing in the mail for about 2 months. Not officially lost, but "out for delivery". MT issued me a $20 credit for a future purchase. I eventually received the original shirt.
-I've never had a problem with the stitching or buttons, though I agree with those who complain abotu button placement on the high button-down collar.

The Bad
-The collar fusing on my first two orders is was extremely stiff. One bubbled. In subsequent orders, I've requested their softest collar, and haven't had any problems.
-I ordered one single-ply fabric with no listed thread-count, and it's essentially paper. One linen fabric wasn't as opaque as I might have liked, but it's still wearable with an heather grey undershirt.

That's what I got sent. Maybe I'm interpreting the attachment wrong. Is it per metre? What's the price for the Royal Oxford?
post #2842 of 3285
Oh, that includes shipping. I'm located in the UK and my price list has the Royal Oxford at £13.49 per metre, i.e. 21.75 Canadian dollars. The column on the far right is the price per metre.

I just called MyTailor and they said they charge $100 per shirt for CMT. Not worth doing from MyTailor considering Acorn Fabric shirts are $179-199 from them anyway.

Thanks, that's quite a premium they charge for shipping isn't it, $10 per yard. Fuck that.

If I ever needed it I'd be better off having you proxy it for me biggrin.gif

Hey guys just ordered my first shirt wondering when I can expect it? - I live in London.

post #2847 of 3285
I live there too - my orders arrive in under a week usually
post #2848 of 3285
Anyone order the white pinpoint (k325) or the pink twill (K321) fabrics? Both are on sale, trying to see if I should make the move,

thanks!
post #2849 of 3285

I can't speak to the quality of those, although I bought a shirt in blue twill (k292) when it was on sale but no longer available. It's different from the current k292a.

 

FWIW, k292 was listed as pure cotton, two ply, 100 thread count, 125g. I can't wear it without an undershirt as it's more transparent than I expected. It has a soft feel to it but is not very thick. I guess I was satisfied at the sale price, but I'm not sure how durable it is and I know nothing about fabric quality. I only wear it with jeans.

Thanks Ketawa! I think i'm going to try out the "White Losange - K324", need a new white shirt!
