First Modern Tailor

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
After a long wait my first Modern Tailor shirt arrived today. Please excuse the shorts, I just took it out of the package and threw it on. Any help on the fit? Not sure what may need to be tweaked as I'm new to MTM shirts. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At a glance, looks like a slam dunk.

Only way to really tell is to put it through the wash and iron. Then post pics again for critique.

How does it feel? Any pulling at the chest, underarms, waist, or wrists?

You need to wash it a few times, iron it, and wear it with proper dress pants for your picture in order to judge how it fits. Also, you'll want to wear it several times so you can figure out if it is comfortable or not.

Looks great!

Going in the wash as we speak (Actually I always hand wash and air dry my dress shirts, so not sure if it will shrink any), just threw it on when it came in the door. No pulling anywhere, I was a little worried going off body measurements.

Looks pretty good for a first attempt, although + 1 to washing and ironing and seeing how it fits. Maybe with pants for context as well. wink.gif

If the shirt is washed in cold water and air dried, there shouldn't be any major shrinkage (if at all). My MT shirt in the blue oxford trial fabric has been washed several times in cold water and dried (air and tumble dryer) and hasn't shrunk at all.

Here is the fit after a first wash and press. Any suggestions?

It looks pretty good. Make your decisions based on how it feels. From the pictures, it looks like the cuffs might be too wide for your wrists (but this might be your preference) and the sleeves might be a little short (depends on where you like your jacket sleeves to end.) The sleeves also seem a little full, but you might want them that way if you use your arms a lot during the day. There looks like some bunching fabric in the back which might be fixed by reducing the waist or adding darts, but it could also be just because of the way you tucked it in. See how it works for you during the day.

Yea, the only issue I notice mentioned above... taper the sleeves a bit and the cuff.


edit: How much do those shirts go for, by the way?

I noticed the same thing with the cuffs and bunching of fabric in the back. I'm going to try
And reduce the waist a bit more.

Did you use body measurements, or shirt measurements?

It looks quite nice overall, as someone else said, the cuffs might be slightly big smile.gif

Used a mix of Body measurements and a decent fitting shirt. Didn't have a really good fitting shirt so I kind of played it by ear.
