post #2926 of 3285

What fabrics did you buy for the 4 shirts?  I'm always on the look out for shirts that don't require a lot of ironing.

 

Thanks.

K328, K321, K320, and u21

I have only worn K321 and U21, but I've been happy. I don't mind ironing though.

brokencycle, sorry I just realized that I asked you the question about fabrics before.  I'm still waiting for my trial shirt to get here.  Will definitely try a couple of the fabrics you mentioned. 

 

I don't mind ironing either, but prefer shirts not to be too wrinkly out of the dryer.

I should have taken a picture. I wore the light blue one today, and I rode a motorcycle to work, so I had an armored jacket and pants on then put a jacket and tie on after getting to work and reversed to leave, and I was still happy with it.

DO NOT get thick MOP buttons. As others have stated they chip easy, one of my gauntlet buttons after the first wear is a third gone.

Oh well, ordered my trial shirt with the thick MOP button blush.gif, thought it's better than the default one based on some of the posts in this thread.  So what buttons did you go with?  The default white ones or the thin MOP ones?

On the more casual shirts, I actually do the wood buttons. Otherwise from now on I will do thin. Like I said, I have chipping after one wear with the thick.

does anyone know if i can send them a physical shirt from which they can take measurements from? Does anyone recommend doing that or no?

You can do this; it's one of the options you can choose after you're done designing your shirt. If you have a tape measure it's also not really hard to do the measurements yourself, but it's up to you.

About the thick buttons, I've made about 6 shirts all with thick MOP buttons and none have ever chipped. Some of them I've washed and dried in the machine, some I've hung-dried, and they're all okay.

I'm going to give this a shot. Any coupon codes?
post #2935 of 3285
After having about 10 shirts done over the past year or so, had a double breasted suit made; turned out pretty darn well for the money.

Will post pics at some point over the weekend-

Ag229487, looking forward to seeing the photos.  BTW, if you can also list your favorite fabrics that would be much appreciated.

Taking the plunge, will be interesting. Based mine off a small extra-slim fit brooks brothers sportshirt but took in the waist/hips, added darts, raised the armholes by 1", and adjusted sleeves accordingly (5'7-5'8", 135 lbs, athletic build).

If it fits, would be an amazing source of shirts going forward considering I currently spend $40 on post-purchase adjustments on all my dress shirts (adjust sleeves, take in sides, darts).

Got my trial shirt today, MT almost nailed it.  I've just made a couple of minor adjustment, and hope to order another shirt soon.

 

On ModernTailor's Facebook page, it mentioned: "We're sending sales codes via email - for summer sales. Once you enter the sales codes on the link on the email you'll see the fabrics are already discounted ! :)". 

 

Are these code specific to a customer or a general code?  If it's a general code, will someone be kind enough to share it?

 

Thanks.

I'm kind of excited about this, after dropping several hundred on alterations this week for my new BB/RL shirts. If this brand works out, would be great. I guess one of my concerns is overall quality of their shirts but I guess that's what the trial is for.

I got their white trial shirt, quality is not great, but passable. The fabrics from their MT Collection book though are outstanding.
