I have just received my first short from Cottonwork and would appreciate any suggestions on how I can improve the fir for future orders. For this first shirt I chose a sky blue fabric from their cheapest range. The cost, with Facebook voucher, was under Â£30 ($47). The shirt was ordered 3/3/11 and received yesterday. I based my measurements on a shirt I had made in London by Stephan Haroutounian (I measured the shirt as opposed to sending it to Hong Kong). The only thing wrong with my order was the font that the invisible monogramme font was different to ordered (Cottonwork were very sporting and gave me 15% credit on the value of the shirt). From my (probably ignorant) perspective, I am thinking of adding an inch to the chest (in an attempt to sort out the strange vertical bunching around the shoulders and armpits), and maybe half and inch to the shoulders. I also think I will add a half inch to the sleeves (I have washed and ironed the shirt once). Shirt details below: Solid Blue CWSU042 Slim fit, Classic bottom cut, N split yoke, Cutaway collar, With Placket fastening, No Pocket pocket, French cuff, Narrow sleeve width, With Button placket button, Tailor Pick hole threads, No inner fabric, Replacable collar stay, NRS monogram text, Exact Script monogram font, Light Blue monogram color, Placket Bottom monogram placement. Thanks in advance for any help! P.S. this was taken after a day at work, hence wrinkles!
