The quality of the fabric depends on which fabric you choose. The $19.99 shirt fabric is exactly what you'd expect it to be, but it's a good way to check your measurements prior to buying a shirt with a higher thread count.

I'm having trouble recalling exactly how the shirt was packaged, but I do know that it had a cardboard box surrounding the collar of the shirt to protect it during shipping.

I have given up on Modern Tailor, for dress shirts at least.

Based on my experience of half a dozen orders, they have no quality control. Every order has arrived with something wrong.

Case in point - my last two shirts had to be remade - one was a full inch too small in the chest and the other had a misshapen collar. The remakes arrived in the mail yesterday. The collars on both replacement shirts are 3/8 of an inch too big (almost 17 inches when I wear a 16.5). And for even more fun, the shirt that was supposed to replace the shirt made an inch too small in the chest is almost an inch too small in the chest.

The people at MT certainly seem somewhat committed to customer service in that they did remake some of my orders. However, this commitment is ultimately meaningless to me since they cannot deliver a properly finished shirt. Even the remakes have to be remade. In light of the time and money I have wasted on the constant back and forth of emails and mailing back shirts, combined with the fact that they ultimately can't deliver on what they promise, I am taking my dress shirt business elsewhere.

if it's just one shirt, it's packaged in an envelope with cardboard surrounding the collar. The packaging of the shirt is quite good. You get the standard cardboard and plastic collar treatment you find in a retail shirt. Several shirts come in a box.

Gentlemen,

Attached to my measurements, I sent some notes on detais as lapels and buttons. Few hours later, the MT taylor feel the need for more explanations and sent a mail to MT sales personnel, who hurried the taylor`s questions to me.
Doubts cleared, I must to admit that the MT staff (both sales and taylor) seemmed agile and zelous.

cheers

Emma (or someone else):

Could you explain how the descriptive (non-numerical) back/shoulder/stomach/body choices in the shirt measurements affect the shirt?

Here's the my latest Modern Tailor shirt: P230 Pink Plain, with V128 Tartan for inside collar and cuff. Thin Mother-of-Pearl buttons. And for the bottom cut, I always ask for a round cut, but with a 2" indent, instead of 4" (like on the first shirt I received from them).

I am a happy customer and plan to purchase more shirts.

I agree with you 100%. Order one shirt at a time. Modify your size if neccessary. Also, the first few shirts that you order should be as BASIC as possible without
1. MOP buttons
2. monograms
3. cuff linings
etc. Also, the fabric should be the $29.95 type of fabric.

Another thing I noticed about taking measurements is that they vary considerably for a body part. The variance in your measurements can be due to the following:
1. How much tension you keep your tape measure.
2. Where you are measuring the perimeter.
3. Whether or not you just ate your food or drank a lot of fluids (important to consider for waist and stomach).
4. Random errors in general. For example, I accidentally for the longest time used a wrong bicep measurement. I was off by 0.75" to big. Also, my wrists were 0.25" smaller, but unnoticeable.
5. Whether you're exhaling/inhaling.


I guarantee to anyone out there, that if you retook your stomach and/or waist measurements, you'll get different values each time.

Also, MT's interpretation of their armholes are a little bigger than my other shirts. My arm hole is 19" for my body measurements. When wearing off the rack, I wear 15.5"/35". My MT shirts have a half perimeter of 10.5", which means that the total perimeter is 21". I only buy the slim fit, by the way.

For my Banana Republic shirt and my bespoke tailored shirt, the arm hole's half perimeter is 9.75".

MT should reinterpret the arm hole dimension.
