It's always been like that for me. I think they simply stop tracking their packages at that point. I usually receive my items within the week of it presumeably sitting in Shanghai.

My package usually ends up being placed in a USPS bag so that may be why they lose their tracking bar code.

Modern Tailors tracking system is next to useless because it switches carriers sometime during shipping and, of course, the new USPS tracking number is never provided.  The tracking numbers I get never work - the Chinese carriers website always times out when I enter the number.  Just when I begin to wonder what happened to my order, it arrives.  Oh well.  Given that the products are assembled specially for me and then shipped all in a reasonable time frame, I can't really complain.

Here's my second shirt from Modern Tailor.  I'm still tweaking the measurements, but I want your guys' input.  Yes, I know I'm wearing jeans in the pictures.  I intend on wearing most of my shirts with jeans and a blazer as I am a college student and wearing dress trousers would be a little too much for everyday wear.  Besides, the jeans have about the same rise as the trousers with my suit (a Brooks Brothers Milano, which I've heard is known for its low rise - which is weird because it was inspired by the suits of the 1960's if I'm not mistaken).

 

Anyways, for some reason I think it still looks like crap.  It could be the fabric (White French Oxford - R72776-01), or it could be the fit.  I don't know.  Also, I'm wondering if I should choose a different collar - one that sits a little higher because I think I have a longer neck. Let me know what you think.

Most of my shirts go through HKD/Aldex or SXY.  Both of them are equally crappy and their tracking sites don't work well at all.  I usually just email Modern Tailor asking for the USPS tracking number 5-8 days after shipping, and they usually can get it for me from the carrier.

 

BTW, the tracking site for SXY is actually http://sha.hkdexpress.net/index.htm.

 

Best of luck.

Hello everyone,

 

I'm really sorry to intrude, but I haven't been able to find a womens' forum like this one here. If I am offending anyone, message me and I will delete this post.

 

I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my shirt and tell me how I could improve the fit. I'm very petite overall, with an Asian body type, but the shirt is shaped so that it emphasizes my lack of curviness. I've circled the areas that could stand to be a little more form fitting. How would I describe these changes in a way that won't mess up the areas that fit well? I think the main problem is that MT specializes in mens' shirts. Darts would help, I think. I requested them, but they weren't included. This is my second trial shirt, so I'm one away from giving up. The last picture is provided to show my body shape a little better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks. :)

I'm not an expert in women's clothing or men's clothing for that matter.  The proportion of the shirt looks ok based on photo #1, but everything (chest, waist and seat) are 1-2 inches too big.  The bicep should be reduced by 1-2 inches as well.  

However, before you adjust your measurements for the next shirt order, think about where you'll be wearing these shirts, in an official environment, a tight-fitting, semi-transparent shirt may not bring in mind the image you want to project.

You should also post your question on the Tailor's thread, maybe "a tailor" or "despos" have altered women's clothing and be able to offer you more help.

Does moderntailor have an indigo or chambray material I could have a dress shirt made with? Almost like a denim type material.

is there still a modern tailor rep here?

they mis-measured one of my shirts i ordered 2 months back that i only got to wear now.

Thanks for your help! :)

Modern Tailor needs solid flannel fabrics. They also need more affordable dark blue options.

monicayee,

Some more feedback:
-Higher armholes will look better. Smaller upperarm circumference will help achieve this.
-When you decrease body dimensions, I think that decreasing the back chest will help rid the wrinkles you see on arms by centering sleeves to your arms better. This can be called "sleeve pitch."
-I'm not sure if you should reduce body dimensions too much (1-2 inches is a lot, especially for you). I think a slight bit of drape looks much more classy on women with a slim build. This would work well if you choose a nicer fabric. I realize that I may be talking about something on which you're already keen...

Thanks. :)

The chest and waist of the shirt are too wide (especially the waist). It makes the shirt look baggy. If you reduce the chest measurement by 1in and the waist measurement by 2in, you'll see a big difference. You could also have the sleeve slimmed down a bit. Ask them to take an inch off of the bicep and 1/4 inch off of the wrist.

Well I got the first bad customer service experience from them and I'm surprised.

 

I've built quite a large collection of MT shirts and placed an order before I went on vacation, totally forgot about the free tie/cuff links.

 

Placed another order and asked if I could get some cuff links and no replies for days even when I followed up.

 

To blow off a customer over some cheap cuff links especially if they've spent significant amount of money at their store is pretty ridiculous in my opinion.

 

I guess I won't be order any more from them.

post #3060 of 3278

Maybe they're not blowing you off. Maybe they're busy. When combined with the timezone difference, that could slow things down. You sound like a typical entitled customer.The "I spend a lot of money here!" rant won't get you anywhere. Relax...It's only been "days."
