Just got an order of 4 shirts from Modern Tailor.  My fit is dead on by now. 

 

For those of you would like to take advantage of the current sale, MT Collection shirts are of superior value if my mind.  

 

Highly recommend these:

LightBlue Pinpoint / R67181-04

White French Oxford / R72776-01

 

Not thin or flimsy at all, iron-free as well, though I found I had to steam occasional wrinkles out.

 

Enjoy.

This is probably a dumb question, but is the sale right now a universal code or unique per person? I haven't seen anything in my email the past few days about it.

Anyone know/have an idea of how long the sale will last? Want to wait for my latest batch of shirts to come in, if possible

Hi guys, would like to benefit from the new customer promo so will be ordering a shirt shortly. Since this is my first time ordering a MTM shirt, would you care to comment on below fit? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Tried moderntailor's service for jackets for the first time. I saw a brushed wool fabric at a local store and thought it would be good for fall and why not experiment with online MTM for the heck of it. So I sent it along with an old jacket with serious shoulder divot issues for modern tailor to copy and changed the styling a lil, added patch pockets, lengthened the jacket etc. So this is the result, apologies for the almost useless pic, emphasis is on the shoulders, and I really don't have anybody to take full length pics at the moment but will try and get my wife to assist when she gets back in town.

One thing I don't like is the fused construction, I instructed them not to use anything, I knew it wouldn't be canvassed but they still went ahead and glued the jacket, but it's no big deal. It's just an experiment and i have enough jackets in my rotation to put a strain on this one.

Would I use them again? Probably not. Construction is lacking and I can get better jackets around the same price point on yoox.

One sleeve looks too long, perhaps due to a crooked spine. The shoulders are off. A forward neck seems to be causing problems. If the shirt hasn't been washed several times, the fit might improve with that. Also, the collar choice was not good - longer points would be better. If that's a RTW shirt, don't even bother with self-measured MTM - the body type deviates in ways that a place like Modern Tailor isn't set up to handle.

Disregard this, bluepilot; it's all totally false.

Bit conflicted here smile.gif but I have ordered a shirt already. Made some minor alterations: increased yoke and chest width 3/4 of an inch, increased sleeve length an inch and decreased collar with 1/4 inch.

 

I will post the results here.

Does anyone know what the deal is with the referral code? You can't use it on the trial shirt, but it has to be used on your first order. Does the trial shirt count as the first order? If so, then what's the point of the referral discount if you can't use it?

They seem to have changed suppliers on the MOP buttons.   I ordered a shirt in March that had the "thick MOP"... and those buttons were quite thick.   This round I ordered 2 shirts with "Thick MOP" and 1 with plain white buttons (by mistake).. the "thick MOP" buttons were the same thickness as the plain white... and literally half the thickness of the older thick ones.  Contacted them and they said thats what the thick ones are like now.... I wonder how wafer thin the thin ones must be? Why advertise these as thick, when they are no thicker that their plain buttons?

 

measurements for these last 3 were good, but there are a few stray threads on them that should have been caught and cut.  This happened on my original order as well.  

 

On my very first shirt from them, (promo, which I had remade)... it had stray threads, the collar button broke off the first time I buttoned... the chest fabric around the button tore when i wore it, and measurements were way off.... 

 

at least this round they fit well and look good- which is really all that matters.  just not thrilled with the stray threads, cheaper feeling buttons, and no emailed tracking numbers.

Indeed MT have changed MOP button suppliers. According to a sales representative, these newer, thinner, "thick" MOP buttons are of higher quality.

Hey guys,

I've gone through about 4 shirt orders now and for the most part I'm liking the fit, but the last tinkering I did seems to have resulted in some issues that I'm not sure how to resolve.

Let me know if better pics / angles are in order, I took these pretty quick this evening. (I'd go to a local tailor to ask them about it, but my eye is all swollen up so I look like a monster at the moment smile.gif )

AppleMark

On my right shoulder there, the back seems to rise up a bit near the back of the collar and then it turns downward into a crease that doesn't look right at all. I suspect a part of it is my posture, it's not always the best and if I straighten out it's not quite as bad. I don't see the same thing on the other shoulder although you can't see it on this picture.

AppleMark

Just for comparisons sake - there's still a little bit of fold on the left shoulder but the right shoulder definitely looks different.

There seems to be some bunching and folding around the armhole now, which I was not really seeing in my previous order. The only adjustment I made was actually to make the yoke measurement smaller.

AppleMark

I selected sloping shoulders and normal back, and the shirt itself is a plain back without darts.

Wondering if any of the following could be contributing to my problem?

1. Shoulders are still too big, and I should bring in the yoke further. Is that the correct change to make in the case of larger shoulders? Do I need to make other changes to compensate when changing the yoke?

2. One of my shoulders is more sloped, or smaller / shorter than the other. Not sure what to do here other than make a custom comment suggestion on my next order.

3. My posture sucks so I should choose the Bent option. I'm not sure in what cases one would select this though, or whether that would be the only issue at play here.


Or maybe I'm completely off-base here smile.gif
Maybe I'm too picky and there's no issue? Although I think the previous shirts, even with the shoulder issue as well, looked better in the armhole area.

The rest of the shirt seems fine, and I don't have a problem wearing this one, but I'd rather fix it for future orders and avoid having to make alterations later (if that's even possible).

Side notes unrelated to my sizing questions, the fabric I chose was T374 and I think it's pretty decent - 80s two-ply, and feels solid. I'd pick up other gingham selections from the same line.

I really like the new "thick" MOP buttons, I was surprised with my previous order having the really thick buttons and found them a pain in the ass but these ones feel pretty nice. Hopefully they stick with these for a while!

I'm curious about the bunching in the back of the arm too. I have a few shirts that do that to and can't figure which measurement to adjust
