Sorry, no darts for me either. Some shirtmakers will insist but that's because of their seamstresses' incompetence. If they can't do it, go somewhere else; do not insist, they'll fail. Darts look cheap because: a) Folding a piece of fabric to hide the excess does not resonate well with bespoke and, b) Darts can be added by anybody - no special skill is needed. Of course, if you like the look of darts, it's your call. The rise of your pants may affect how the shirt bulges on the back. So, bring your pants.
