I'm new to both this forum and to tailored clothing but i thought it was about time to start with both.
I ordered a MTM shirt from luxire and i'm very impressed with the workmanship.
The fit allover is allright (when taking in account that i figured out the measurements myself).
I was wondering if i could get some pointers from the experts on this forum.
I wanted this shirt to be short so i could wear it casual, the next one wil be longer to wear as a dress shirt.
The sleeves are a bit to big for my taste so that is something i will change.
Can't wait to get some feedback so i can place my next order.
Thanks in advance!
Still too short to be worn casually but I suppose that's preference. Definitely need to relax or lower the armhole depth some or increase the chest of the shirt. Maybe a little of both. Sleeves that are slimmed require a higher armhole and therefore maybe harder to slim without the pulling effect across the chest.
Can luxire adjust for posture? If so, that needs to be correct. Something else you can do is take a measurement of your fullback from one armpit to the other. Add a little for ease since you're going no pleats and that would clean up across the back. Depending on how you stand or how much "shape" there is between your waist and hips will/should also factor into how long you get the shirt made and perhaps what has to be done to it on the back end. Shirts shouldn't have excessively curved side seams because it takes the fabric off grain and creates a lot of distortion. To counter this or adjust for more "shape" or closely fitted shirts for the slim/modern trend, darts need to be added. Personally, I add them myself and I do it right behind or in front of the side seams so that the natural size of my arm tends to hide the the dart from view.
