Having ordered from them countless times, this is completely normal. Don't expect to track your package -- just rest assured that they will eventually arrive, as I have never not received my orders.

After checking the other companies moderntailor uses for their expedite shipping I found that my package was not sent through dhl as it states in the website. Instead the used Haokuda Logistics http://sha.hkdexpress.net/index.htm . I hope this helps other people. So far it only shows the date the package was recieved and the status is in transit to Mexico.

Communication has been really spotty since CNY. No responses on questions I've sent weeks ago but a rep did follow up on a fabric issue without addressing any of the previously sent questions. No follow up since I've responded to their fabric question 5 days ago.

They are either really backlogged from the break for CNY or having other issues? Either way I'm concerned and contemplating cancelling my order...

Hey everyone!

 

I ordered a couple shirts through Modern Tailor utilizing measurements from a well fitting shirt.  My main issue, as you can see from the pics, is the extra fabric around the collar.  I know the pic's are not great, but any suggestions on how to rectify this issue would be most appreciated (maybe adding a bit to the Shoulder measurement, but if so do I leave the Yoke measurement the same or add to this as well?)  Also, if you have comments on anything else you see as far as the fit is concerned please let me know.  I am a big fan of finally having some clothing that fit better than OTR, and think I am very close to having some excellent shirts!  Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

 

I have laundered this and all others from my order at least 5 times (cold wash and air dry).

 

 

Measurements in inches-

Collar: 15.75

Half Chest: 20.88

Half Waist: 18.25 (thinking this may be a bit to snug compared to chest)

Half Hip: 20

Sleeve: 24.75

Half Bicep: 7

Cuff: 8.5

Yoke: 17

Shoulder: 5.5

*Also going to add a bit on the arm holes as they are a bit snug.

Hey,

I've had the same issue with the shoulders since I started using MT and still no solution. I've tried saying I had a straight back then average, and also tried adjusting to flat shoulder. 

Maybe we should email MT and ask for their suggestions. 

And yes if you want to adjust the shoulders you should adjust the yoke measurement. Personally i dont even input should measurements and just let the collar and yoke measurements dictate my shoulders.

I've received 3 shirts from Modern Tailor so far, and with the exception of the first which my measurements not correct, they are excellent shirts.

 

Awaiting shipments of these.

 

?ui=2&ik=ca0dac186a&view=att&th=13d3bb638b222a5c&attid=0.1&disp=inline&safe=1&zw&saduie=AG9B_P-OxRrSKYJYmaAhEjVCtmzZ&sadet=1362766456441&sads=EABtxfoNZdPTHPZcweAySFXIUt4?ui=2&ik=ca0dac186a&view=att&th=13d36909410e256a&attid=0.1&disp=inline&safe=1&zw&saduie=AG9B_P-OxRrSKYJYmaAhEjVCtmzZ&sadet=1362766486771&sads=xR0_wniincOjTJH3oDMQqCvTT64

 

and a pair of pants...

 

I also got a shirt from cottonwork, and fit and quality are nearly identical to my untrained eye.

 

I'll be getting a couple of suits, not sure if I'll go with Modern Tailor or Dragon Inside. OTR looks like crap on me, even after tailoring...

 

MT suits are half canvas, start at ~$300+shipping/duty/taxes, Dragon Inside are full canvas, and start at $480CDN including shipping/duty/taxes. A bit of a toss up.

I probably should have taken a picture of this shirt untucked but...

 

- I received my trial shirt today.

- The time from placing the order to receiving the shirt was about 23 or 24 days, depending on how you consider late-night orders.

- The trial shirt material seems to be some tinted version of butcher paper.

- Overall, the fit isn't that bad.

   - (I think) the arm holes are slightly too narrow, so that would need to be adjusted.

   - (I think) the arms themselves are slightly too wide.

   - (I think) the body is just a touch wide (from the back picture, you can see that I actually don't have as much of a love-handle situation as the front shots suggest).

   - (I think) the draping would be solved by a better, softer material.

   - (I think) the wrinkles to the left and right of the collar (on the shoulders) that other people seem to have noticed as well, are caused by the actual collar being taller than the inner collar allows (I don't know the proper tailoring terms).

 

Now, for some terrible pictures, from awkward angles...

Can anyone actually find the expedite production option? Can't find it anywhere...
post #3159 of 3285
Can anybody comment on the recent quality of the cheap black and white shirts available to new customers?

I've seen pictures of the black one that look so shiny it appears to almost be made of a sateen fabric! Is the white any better?

I know they're going to be crappy fabrics for such a cheap price, but if they were at least wearable (i.e not horribly shiny) I'd be more inclined to give them a go.
post #3160 of 3285
The white is very wearable (not shiny at all and decent quality). Can't comment on the black.
post #3161 of 3285
Latest shirt is a great fit (nice fabric too). I think I've almost perfected the measurements.
post #3162 of 3285
^ What fabric did you order?
post #3163 of 3285
There's one fit issue that I'm having trouble working out. The elbows on some of my orders are tight and uncomfortable. Others (with the same measurements) are fine. I've just measured and found up to a 1.5 cm diameter difference in some of my shirts at the elbow.

Is this just due to fabric shrinkage? What measurement should I alter to adjust the elbow allowance without just making the sleeve more billowy in general? Bicep? Can I just specify in the order comments that I'd like the elbow to have a certain diameter?

You can probably specify an elbow or forearm measurement. Just ask and hopefully it doesn't take forever for them to respond.

If you have one shirt that fits really well, maybe not one they made, you could send it to them to duplicate.
