ok not OCD just overthinking.

reduce the shirt cuff. the jacket seems fine.

only listen to your wife, when she asks you to bring home milk..
the button stance is too high, but it can not be changed now.
also do not button the jacket when wearing a vest.

Haha thank you, sir. How much would you suggest? It's currently 24cm circumference and my wrist is around 6.75 inches so I go 7.75 actually mid button to mid button.

why are you using inches and centimeters?

my standard
if your actual wrist measurement is 6.75
the cuff from outside edge to the other outside edge is 9.5"
I am assuming your shirtmaker is suing standard distance from the edge for buttons and buttonholes.

Thanks.

 

so cuff outside edge to outside edge is exactly 9.5" on this shirt, in line with your recommendation. But from appearence it looks too wide to you?

i am looking at this from one photo.

Can I please get some feedback on this shirt from proper cloth? I'm going to send it back for a remake as it is my first from them. I think I'd like it longer, and take some off in the midsection. I'd also like to make the sleeves thinner. The armholes feel too big, and it seems like the way to make those smaller is to make the sleeves thinner (I still have some room). I would also like to take in the shoulders a bit and adjust for my more upright posture in the back of the collar. I'd appreciate any thoughts on any of this, how much to do for each adjustment, and anything else. I am also going to ask for smaller cuffs, they are a bit large. And maybe take the chest in a bit? 

 

For the midsection, do I just make the measurement smaller or do darts? 

 

This shirt has been washed once. Edit: Yes, I am aware that the pants are too tight. I grabbed the wrong pair of gray pants. These pants are in my signature.

was the shirt washed yet?

self measured, or measured by someone from Propercloth?

if self measured, how did you come up with measurements.

the yoke can come in by an inch
the armhole is fine
the sleeve width fine.

the cuffs might be too large in circumference.
If the cuffs are fused, and the shirt was not washed, do not touch that. fused cuffs shrink.,

tail length is fine

is the waist area too large?
yes, reduce an inch and then add darts.

you have odd shoulders.
the fullness around the back of the neck might be very hard to rectify with their system.
also in your photos, you have normal shoulder slopes but with shoulder points pitched forward.

in the back photo you have a very low right shoulder.

I love the fact that propercloth allows a free remake..
at least now then break even,
when they made the shirts in the USA, they lost money on the remakes....

Thanks. The shirt was washed once. It did shrink a little in length but not much else. My body was measured by my wife under my direction and using the videos from proper cloth. The cuffs and neck did not shrink that much if at all so I need to take those in. The neck was actually made half an inch too large to begin with.

I know my shoulders are very strange. My right is lower and not as wide. The overall sleeve length from neck to wrist is a half inch shorter. I'm not really sure what to do about that other than live with it. I'm not at the level of bespoke shirts.

And can you clarify what you mean by fullness around the back of the neck might be hard to rectify? I have some close ups. The photos of the back of my neck look pretty much like the example photos on the website. They say they can adjust for neck posture by a half inch or a full inch.

making the collar larger is standard.
it looks fine.

reduce the cuff about 1/4"

ask if they can adjust for forward pointing shoulders.

Thanks. I'll ask about the forward shoulders, but I doubt it. May be another thing I have to live with. Are there other places that can make this adjustment?

I can do it.. but not from 3000 miles away.

Here's another jacket I had done recently. Is there any problems with it? How does it fit?
