I just got my Modern Tailor trial shirt, and while it's better than any of my other shirts...I used to be too fat and poor to have nice shirts, so "better" is a long way from "perfect." I'm not sure what measurements I need to adjust for a better fit. In particular, the back puffs out like I'm hiding a puppy back there. I know I'm a bit rotund, but I think I'm missing an important "no puffball in the back" measurement.

(Info: I used body measurements and regular fit.)

I look forward to hearing from anyone with more of a clue than me.

That last guy wasn't kidding about multiple submissions.

Nope, he wasn't kidding even a little bit.

I'm not trying to be rude, but it has been mentioned many, many, many times in this thread already that you are far better off taking measurements from an existing shirt that fits reasonably well, and tweaking them, than using body measurements.

Duplicate post, sorry technical issues.

I want to order from MT based on my new MTM shirt from another company. My measurement were quite precise, so the tolerance of +-2cm on chest, waist and seat introduces some uncertainty.


Say if the half-chest is 52cm, will the MT shirt come at 50cm or more toward 54?  If the former, then I should mark the half chest as 54 to compensate, but I'm afraid it may be 4 cm too wide if they lean more toward the wider end.

 

BTW, is there a summer sale going on right now?  How do I get the code?

 

Thanks.

seems when we take body measurements we measure on the big side.....I used a shirt that was my best fit from brookes brothers.

YOu could of cut it closer to your stomach seems you have lots of baggage (shirt wise) and could of taken it in more.  the shirt seems big in general on you....like OTR.

Does the white twill look like an oxford to anyone else? It looks and feels like an oxford and not a twill to me.
