I believe that its 3 x $10. So like free shipping on 3 shirts.

When I washed my trial shirt it shrunk in some places but not others...namely the sleeve length and armhole, but not the chest or waist. Should I take this into account for all future shirts and add 0.25 to 0.50 inches to these measurements? It seems different fabrics will have differing shrinkage rates, so I'm a bit at a loss of what to do.

I'm now thinking of redecuing the half-waist measurement by centimetre, the chest by a centimetre and the hips by half a centimetre. I think the arms and shoulders are fine but if anyone thinks otherwise... I think I'm also trying to stand too straight in these photos, but I've posted new ones in this thread - http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions/2760_30#post_6105508.

For the excess fabric in the lower back, you can specify a different back half waist measurement and/or add darts. For example, on my shirt i do 44cm front half waist and 39cm back half waist. Using a smaller back half waist is what they recommended to me because I have a hollow lower back due to my posture/build. For reference my body waist measurement is 30".

I think the issue was the specific fabric and not the measurements. What fabric did you use?

It was the Trial blue oxford for $19.99, which they claim is 2 ply 80s, but feels like butcher paper.

Anyone else find service really slow lately? I ordered 11 days ago and its still being 'processed'. In the past its never taken more than a few days. I also emailed to make a change to the order a few days ago and never got a reply. I realize it was Chinese New Years recently, so is everyone taking the month off or something?

No, Chinese New Year was in January I believe. Should work fine now.

I just recently had an order that had to be redone, and didn't have a problem at all..The longest time I waited for an email was during their holiday of 3 days..everything else was within 24 hours of each email.

post #3130 of 3278
Having the same problem here. I have an order that's marked as "Process order" since Feb 4, and another that I placed on the 11th that still showing "Payment completed" which implies they haven't even started on it yet. Getting a little worried...

"Regular factory schedule resumes on 18 Feb, but our tailors are on skeletal workforce to minimize the delay."

Translation: "We aren't making your shirt until at least February 18th"

Well, that would explain it. Where did you see that??

I just looked around their site once again and saw nothing to that effect, and that starts to piss me off. It's not that hard to set a vacation message on their primary contact email address to notify their customers to expect delays, at the very least. Not to mention adding a simple banner that is easily visible on the top of their web site indicating their work schedule changes. I don't know. They've been great in remaking a couple of orders where pattern matching was grossly overlooked, but honestly, a little attention to detail in the customer service (to include quality control) is amiss IMHO.

Agreed, they should respond to emails at the very least, even if its automated.
