post #4666 of 12403
So, my last order came in 10 days ago, havent had a chance to take pictures.
Both shirt and pants in the same picture.
Pictures (Click to show)



I want to decrease waist by a little bit (not sure if that's really visible in the pictures, but it's a tad too wide.
I want to hem the pants from the knee downward, especially the leg opening could fit a bit slimmer.

I think the shirt fits quite good, a bit of excess fabric at the back, but I doubt it's noticeable when worn and in motion.

Thanks for any feedback and apologies for any inconvenience or bad picture quality.

Have you washed and worn the shirt several times before?
I have learned to be very careful with reducing the back waist.
It is easily achieved to have the shirt pulling from a back waist that is too narrow.

Two tests I have found for myself to see whether or not the shirt fits myself are driving a car and lounging on a couch.
While driving a car the fabric of the back waist will be jammed between seat and your back and not able to move freely.
Additionally you have your arms raised in front of you which tentions the back of the shirt.
If there is too little fabric in the back you will notice a restriction in movement.

When lounging on a couch, leaning forward not only the top back of the shirt but also the back waist will be tentioned to a maximum.
If the shirt is too narrow around chest and/or waist the shirt which got pulled up from leaning forward will not be able to fall down on its own and you will notice tention around your back and stomach.

I think the shirt looks pretty fine on you.
Most of the fabric in the back looks like excess length, which can not be prevented, instead of excess width.
Which fabric is your shirt made of?

Shirt looks good in front but you will need to dart the back to get rid of the excess fabric. Don't think decreasing the waist will work since you are only targeting excess fabric at the back.

For the pants, increase the back rise to accommodate your pelvic tilt.

Luxire,

 

I know this has sort of been covered before, but, in terms of fabrics, how much do you have in stock that's not yet featured on the website? I'm here, ready to shell out on orders, but it's somewhat tricky when I'm unaware of all you have to offer.

The excess back fabric in my opinion is only really an aesthetic thing in this case. It's noticeable in pictures, but I cant imagine this being the case when I walk around in the shirt (and certainly not when sitting down).

I've worn the shirt a few times and so far sitting down, lying on a couch/bed, etc. are fine and I really dont think I would need to get rid of the excess fabric.
But I am open to suggestions from the community.

Fabric: Blue Royal Oxford 80/2

You think darting the back is a necessity? I am quite happy the way the shirt is and I am afraid that darting the back might decrease comfortability when walking around in the shirt or doing anything else than standing and posing for pictures.

Re: Pants
Do I only need to increase the back rise? I was thinking about increasing back and front, but not sure if that's feasible or if it looks weird.



Thanks you two for the feedback.

^I'd do the front and back rise, maybe .75" for the front and 1" for the back. You might also increase the rear hip measurement by maybe .5".

Nice JP! I would like to have one like that!
post #4675 of 12403
Nice. I have a white linen coming. You're making me wish I got a linen cotton.
post #4676 of 12403

Actually, is that the cool white linen cotton? That's what I got! fing02[1].gif

 

Starting to forget what I had ordered. :-X

I think you're refering to the picture I've posted some days ago. Think of a no placket shirt were a single seam runs along the place where a placket would end. Just aesthetics and a little bit more structure for the shirt.

anyone know what the % of linen/cotton is for or the "cool white"/the other linen cotton blends?

Nope. It'd be cool if they did list it though. I have the swatch and have a shirt ordered. It seems to me, to be more linen than cotton. 

 

I have another linen cotton (blue pencil stripe) and that's way more cotton feeling than the cool white linen cotton.

would be pretty useful, especially if it isn't uniform through different shirts.
