post #2956 of 3278

I'm very thankful of those that have shared previously, here is my experience.

 

I had my wife measure me according to the website guide and bought a trial shirt.  It was pretty close so I tweaked a few things and ordered two more.  They are the best fitting shirts I've owned yet.  Quality is OK, but the fit, price and choice of design outweighs the quality for me.

 

I need some suits so I used the $50 off offer for new suit orders.  I measured and bought.  I knew this won't be great so I ordered the cheapest fabric and color that might work out: WX46 (Navy blue stripe).  The suit with shipping and first time discount was $249.99 USD.  Buy-button to my door was 15 days.

 

Attached is the unboxing, self shots of the suit, and one of my second shirts.  The suit needs tweaking, so any advice would be appreciated.  The shirt fabric is White Twill / K310.

Box is squished, but contents are OK.

Inside box is plastic suit bag folder into quarters

Wrinkles of course, but easily ironed out.

The small pocket by button fits an iPhone perfectly

The camera is low so - augments my pear shape. buttons a bit high maybe?

Sleeves feel a bit too long too - I'm wearing the white shirt in the last photo under the jacket and it still covers the white cuffs.

The cuffs are 2 button (the default on the form).  They feel a bit long, as do the sleeves, but I prefer too long rather than too short.

^ sleeves look too long to me. So do the pants. I'll let others make more comments though because I'm not expert.

Can anyone comment on ship time and conditions? My trial shirt shipped pretty much 24 hours after I ordered - GREAT! Only thing i'm concerned about is if a signature is required for delivery as I am not home during the day. Anyone have their package waiting on the porch for them? Or did you have to sign?

Thanks!

I don't honestly remember - I think they'll leave it. The shipments I have received are via USPS Express. If they can't, you can leave the signed notice on the door.

They have always required a signature, which can be a pain if you are not home in the afternoon.

Hey fellas I have been getting all of my shirts from moderntailor, have about 25 of them now. I never buy anything full price because the sales are so frequent/awesome, and I always make sure I get 80's thread count or higher. Now, is the 80's + thread count unnecessary? I have seen several things stating that thread count is an unrealistic measurement etc etc but I have used it as a failsafe of sorts for quality. As long as I have stayed above 80, we've been good. Shirts lasting about a year to 18 months and that's all I would ask at that price point. I do, however want to try and take advantage of more options on their sales... but if it doesn't say the thread count, it's 70's or lower. what does SF think?

Some of their fabrics don't post thread count, so I simply go off 2 ply. I have 5 shirts now, and they all seem fine.

If they don't post the numbers I assume they are hiding something.
post #2965 of 3278

Tax genius that's what I was thinking... but the two ply I can work with. If it's two ply or 80's and above I think I can trust it. Thanks

post #2966 of 3278
I suspect some of these Chinese fabrics don't come with this information. I usually only buy fabric with ply and thread count information.
post #2967 of 3278

I just posted some pictures of my latest Modern Tailor shirt, it's a bit too tight around the chest, but I like the fit overall.

 

Appreciate any feedback you have.

 

Fabric is T348, pretty thick and not flimsy at all.

post #2968 of 3278

I have a tough time of finding fabrics I like, and when I do find something it gets sold out fast... sigh waiting to pull the trigger on something nice.

I get what your saying. You forgot however that there are pleads near the cuff. The material does not taper right from the arm hole to the cuff. Adding the bicep gives the appropriate taper.

Hey guys, new to the forum.

 

I actually just got fitted and purchased a nice bespoke suit from a friend's referral. I expect to get it in a few weeks, and can't wait. If all is well, I plan on taking these measurements and trying out modern tailor.

 

My question is I really like a slimming look, so european cut is my choice. On modern tailor, I see a choice to choose slim fit... does this necessarily mean european cut?

 

I'll know more once I get my custom suit that I mentioned above, but the hopes are that it fits perfectly and I can just duplicate it for a few more suits off modern tailor. If they don't offer european cuts though then that may be an issue.

 

 

Thanks
