We also requested for address confirmation so we can ship it to the right customer... This is a regular check we send to customers who have no order history with us or have not passed some fraud filters. We try to consider other context to let the order go through in some instances.

If there are concerns, kindly send me a message / Leah

I have no problems with your policies but the sudden cutoff in communication is definitely not good customer servicing. I requested for cancellation, no replies from MT whatsoever after that and the next day I received a shipment notification. This is very confusing, Leah.

On a brighter note, the fit of the shirt is pretty spot on. Thankfully.

I've ordered a few MT shirts now, and they're ok, but there is some common theme wrong with them that I can't place my finger on. I think the MT shirts are a lot less stiff, perhaps? They seem to be thinner, but if I feel the fabric side-by-side with a BB shirt, it doesn't really seem thinner. The shirt generally just looks more wrinkly when I'm walking around with it, even if I've ironed it.

 

I like the fit fairly well of my MT shirts and the price. I like BB shirts more, but I don't want a pocket on the front (and they're more expensive).

 

Has anyone experienced something like this or might be able to describe it better than me?

I've found some of the materials recently to be almost... papery to the touch. It's not necessarily thin, it just wrinkles very very easily, and doesn't feel soft like normal material.

I might try one of their more expensive options sometime, and see if it's better, but for now the fit and cost are what's most important.

Hi there,

 

Just got my first shirt from modern tailor and was looking for some input. I think there are a few changes that I would make to this shirt:

  • Reduce arm sleeve by 2"
  • Reduce yoke by 0.5". Shoulders too long.
  • Reduce waist by 4". Waist is way too big, the shirt is poofing.
  • Enlarge armhole by 1". Armholes are too tight leading to the shirt tugging between neck/armpit

 

Any other suggestions?

I also bought some other shirts in China intended for the Chinese market, and these shrink more than 2" in some cases.  The reason I think is Dryers are not popular in China yet, so people usually line dry.

Some of their linnen fabrics shrink a lot.

I think some of those changes are extreme. Sleeves will probably be way too short at a 2" reduction, and I doubt you'll be able to fit in it with a 4" reduction especially seeing you enter the half-measurement, which will mean 8" less on the waist.

Hey conway224,

To correct the extra fabric under the collar all you have to do is change the BACK option. The options I think are straight average and bent. I think you should go for bent. This would add material to the back and take away from the front. This would also correct the line of the yoke across your back. 

As for additional input, I've learnt that sleeves and cuff are person preference however I noticed that there is a vertical fold near your shoulder blade and one near your armpit that you can get rid of by making the yoke smaller. It is at the end of the day entirely up to you. I seem to like a smaller yoke while most people till tell you that the seams should lay on your bone.

This is my MT trial shirt I just got. Quite happy with the results for a first try, but looking to improve for future orders.  Shirt has been washed, and I'm thinking of taking in at least an inch at the hips

 

What would you change ??

 

 

To be honest, not much. I think it looks ok. All about comfort from here!

It would be nice to have a picture of it buttoned up.

What kind of BB shirts are you refering too? and what MT fabrics are you selecting? If your refering to BB Iron free shirts, they are actually soaked in formaldehyde releasers. I believe the non-irons materials from MT are the same but most of there selection is just plain washed cotton. I have a few of the BB shirts but I don't wear them in the summer because they don't breath as well as plain cotton. I'm not sure but my guess would be that that's the difference you feel.

I think your arm holes are fine. I think the yoke needs to be pulled in like 4 inch in stead. Try pulling the yoke up and then feeling the arm movement. I think you will find this allot better than making the arm holes bigger.

I think you should change your shoulder slope from average to SLOPED. This would take out allot of the wrinkles out of the back and shoulders. you might want to do up the top button and double check of the back setting is correct. You look more like a bent rather than average but just do up the top button to see.

I think you sleeve lenght is fine. I had the same issue before than someone on this forum steered me into the right direction. the cuff is what holds the shirt up not the sleeve length. unbuttoned they should be about 1 cm above the web of your hand. the cuff should bring it up the rest. This will give the room you need to rise your arms. With out it, it is uncomfortable and looks like your have really out grown your shirt while writing at a table or even driving.

I am hoping for some input on the fit of my trial shirt as well.  Sorry about the bad lighting, I have a decent camera, just no damn clue how to use it:

 

 

 

My measurements:

 

 

Impressions of the shirt are that the bicep measurement is too small; the shirt is very tight when I bend my arms.  Also, the chest is tight, as you can see the shirt pulling all the time around the third button.  I think I may need to increase the length of both sleeves slightly, the left maybe 1 mm more than the right, as my shoulders aren't perfectly straight (harder to tell in the pictures than when I am wearing a suit, there is obviously less cuff showing on my left arm than the right).

Bump - is my shirt that far off that nobody can offer an opinion?
 

post #3044 of 3277
People are helpful here in general, I just think good photos is the key. Maybe take the photos outside. For example, there are some odd looking vertical lines on the left side shot, but don't know if it is due to lighting.

Anyone had shipping issues with the carrier JCEX? My shirt and chinos have been sitting in their Shanghai facility for 5 working days now.
