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.

An extra 2" ease on-top of the body measurement sounds about normal. The 9.75" arm-hole on your BR shirt would make 19.5" total, which is only 0.5" larger than your body measurement. I suspect that you're taking the body measurement wrong, because if you weren't then the arm-holes on the BR shirt would be unwearably small.

the shirt looks good, but why are you trying to make it look like a burberry shirt

Ol' BostonElitist has this measuring thing down. He has informed us on numerous occasions.

Our website will feature nothing more than an order button because, as our slogan states, 'the customer is not to be trusted'. We benchmarked a popular shirtmaker in Asia that begins with 'J' on their delivery time and are happy to offer 3-64 weeks delivery. Good luck!

Thanks. If this gets off the ground, I may be ordering from you.

The pitch is quite off on that shirt, as it was with mine in that same fabric. I am working with MT on a resolve.

What's the "pitch" on a shirt?

The only thing I'm not 100% happy with with that shirt is the armhole. It's a bit tight. Not sure if it's because I started gaining weight (been hitting the gym recently) or if MT made a mistake. I have to measure it...

Has anyone ordered either of these white shirt fabrics? v233 - white plain - 80's - 2 ply v234 - white twill - 80's - 2 ply Both are on sale for $49.99 and I need some basic white shirts

So you can't chain coupons together? That's pretty dumb, considering the "sfoct20" coupon code gives me a bigger discount than any of my $10 off coupons. Really wish I hadn't bought the fabric swatches now...

SF has got to be the cheapest group of people on the planet. Have any of you ever even bought a fabric for the regular price rather than on sale or on sale with a further coupon discount? And now the idea of using multiple coupons keeps coming up? If you think MT should work for free, come out and say it.

I never have though I am only 2 shirts deep from them. Once I get fit perfectly right I don't think I would have a problem ordering a fabric that was not on sale.

I just ordered a regular priced fabric shirt. I'm more peeved with the fact that I ordered a fabric book advertised as FREE!!!!! when in fact I got 30 bucks worth of worthless coupons, considering I can get a bigger discount by using the styleforum code.

Or at the very least allow one coupon per shirt instead of per order...
