Should I increase my stomach or body build measurements? 




A few possible reasons come to mind:

  1. Waist can bee too tight indeed
  2. Button spacing is too big. Are the buttons spaced out differently than on a shirt where this doesn't happen?
  3. Shirt length. If the last button remains above the belt, this problem can occur.

Apologies if this has already been asked. I did do a search on the thread, but couldn't find an answer.,

Do trousers and suits made by Modern Tailor need to be dry cleaned before you first wear it? Or do they just need to be pressed?

Received my first shirt from MT, a casual white OCBD, I may be a pessimist but it fits 4x better than I was expecting, I don't even need to tweak measurements for my next order. Got a nice shorter length to wear untucked.

How long did shipping to the US take for you guys? They shipped via ALDex on 4/15 but the tracking website is horrendous...

I ordered my shirt on 4/20 and came in 5/2, not bad at all!!! I agree that the ALDex website is a waste of time.

Hi All,
I am new to Style Forum so please excuse me if I am inadvertently breaking etiquette! I recently got my first trial shirt from Modern Tailor using the body measurement method. I don't have a good fitting shirt to measure which is the reason I need a good custom shirt in the first place. I'm not too pleased with the results.

First off I am short, about 5 foot 4 inches and weigh 150 lbs. I have a little bit of a spare tire so I know I'll never have the V cut look with my scrawny physique! I've only gotten OTR 15-1/2 32-33 shirts before and they are always too long and too baggy - arms, waist, etc. And I haven't found a good slim fit shirt. Anyway, here are the results:

Overall besides being shorter than my other shirts it still feels too big. Maybe I should have gotten their slim fit option, I got regular fit option for this shirt. The material they added to my original measurements essentially made it the same size at the chest and waist then all my other OTR shirts!

The arm holes still feel too big and the shirt pulls up at the sides when I lift my arms. The sleeves themselves can be a smaller diameter too I think. The sleeve length is fine I think. I still have to do the military tuck on the sides as there is still extra material.

Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated. With my small stature I really want to order good fitting shirts and I was really hoping this would work.

Thanks again!

FYSA: Placed an order for two shirts on 16 May and they arrived on 6 June. None too shabby.

hey there,


I'm struggling to fit into HY trousers without a lot of alterations. Interested in trying out MTM pants from MT. I have a slim waist with slightly above average hip width and rear end. Typically the waist in a little loose while the seat is too tight on pants for me.


Assuming I am taking a pair of good fitting pants to measure but want to alter slightly, which measurement would increase the seat? Measurements on the MT site include:


half waist

half hip

front rise

back rise

half thigh


half knee

half hem.


I suspect some combination of the half hip, front, and back rise will get me there. But since there are no "cheap" pants options  like there are the 19.95 shirt, I'm hoping to get it right the first time. Plan is to buy the cheapest pants (cotton @ 49.95), hope it fits well and then move onto wool.
