I wouldn't touch the chest/waist measurements at all, if I were you.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking the same thing about the shoulder measurement. I'm not to sure about the sleeve length. Should they be shorter. Also do the cuffs look to big?

The sleeves do look a bit long to me, but if you shorten the shoulder, it might shorten the sleeve too much. You could reduce the cuff a tad as well, but it is hard to tell in the picture.

Has anyone tried iTailor? I've been looking around for more mtm shirt-makers. Modern Tailor is starting to get on my nerves. iTailor takes longer to ship but it has a much better selection, and it's more affordable. I'll try my money there next once I receive my MT shirt and post the pics.

There is no way there are more fabrics available on iTailor...

With an arm-hole size that is comfortable and allows freedom of movement, my bicep measurement is always far too loose.

I understand that the bicep measurement can only be made around 6cm smaller than the armhole measurement, but is there any way for me to reduce the bicep measurement even further?

I'm a very skinny man and this is the only problem I've been having with MTM shirts and cannot seem to get it sorted.

I thought the Half Arm Hole needs to be at least 6 cm larger than half bicep, so you can have a Half Armhold of 20 cm and Bicep of 10 cm if you wish.  MT may call you to confirm but I don't think the system will prevent you from saving your measurement.

Has ModernTailor gone with a different vendor in the last four or so months for its thick mother of pearl buttons?

 

A recent order just came in and the buttons are MUCH thicker than in prior shirts. They look/feel almost too much like plastic buttons.

Quick review (will post pics later) as it might help some people out.

Fabric: White Herringbone / 82223-52 / USD 79.95 - 2ply 140g
Terrible fabric. I can't believe I paid $80 for it (and it was on sale from $130! Feel sorry for anyone who bought it at that price). It's like an oxford shirt more than anything. VERY easily wrinkled. The elbow areas get a ton of wrinkles in about 15 min of wear and it's like you never ironed the shirt to begin with. It seems just as bad as the $20 trail shirt. Despite the extra price it is still very see through. God forbid your pants sag a bit past your boxers, you will be showing off your batman boxers to everyone.
You can't wear this shirt with a tie because it's just too wrinkly. You can only wear this casually if you roll up the sleeves and pretty much go commando (so everyone doesn't see the terrible elbow wrinkles and your boxers). Very frustrating, would return the shirt if I could.



EDIT: pictures, just 2. Sorry for dirty mirror, have been working too much to take time to clean up.



My sizing still needs to be edited a bunch, still need to slim down the waist even more (though these pants are too tight on me). The back is still pretty loose, but I think slimming down the waste would really help. I got those back arrows and I don't think they help with the excess fabric in the back at all. The last pic is a poor example of how see through the shirt is, but you get the point.

Agreed on this. Got a shirt yesterday, the buttons are much nicer.

I posted this as a separate thread but reposting here.

 

Some of you may also have a forward pitch to your shoulders like me which is causing the fabric bunching at the chest shoulder area (this was A Tailor's diagnosis). Have you been able to correct for this at Modern Tailor? Are other companies in your experience better or worse at this?

 

I also wonder if I should have the shoulder taken in a touch. Thoughts?

 

I had the armholes taken in to 9 or 9.5 inch and like it. Not too constraining. Chest feels good; sleeves are just about right, not tighter (better not work out).

 

People have commented on the waist but I had a big meal and it didn't feel that tight. Tight at skirt, but it's over shorts. This was their cheap starter shirt. My first high, spread collar, which I like.

 

Also, I know it isn't tucked in, but suggestions on the back? Suggestions if I try again, and what's a nice blue fabric you've made dress shirts with that are decent and not >$90.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thoughts appreciated.

Have you washed the shirt been through a few washes?
