I have posted in the Tailors Thread and was adviced to do so by OTCtailor.
While I see why I am advised to do so, I have to admit that I like my shirts to be as clean as possible, no darts, no pleats, french front.
Thus I would prefer to solve the problem without adding pleats.
Also I read a lot of articels on shirts by Mr. Kabbaz and he is of the opinion a well constructed shirt won't need pleats.
To be honest, I am afraid my current MTM tailor might be really poor at taking measurements.
If the next shirt, with all the changes he advised me to do to a previous one, turns out to be as poor a fit, I won't accept it, ask my money back and won't return.
As a student it annoys me to spend hundreds of euros for MTM shirts which do not come out to my satisfaction, especially as I stressed the fact I would like a slim shirt but without the will to trade any of it's slimness for restriction in everyday movement like sitting at a table, driving a car or picking something up the ground.
