Yes. That said, if you go with an online maker, it's imperative that you know what your true measurements are, and in that regard, a well fitting otr option that has been darted is a good starting point. We've all seen countless examples of Modern Tailor trainwreckes.

Do my BB's extra slims fit like my mtm shirts? No. But do they fit better than 99% of what you see men wearing? Yes.

Frankly, some of my mtm shirts could be darted because I have a shallow lower back compared to my upper back. Alot of the really nice fitting stuff you see on here is a combination of great mtm and a body type that lends itself well to the particular shirt being worn.

Wow, long thread. Am sure it's already been mentioned but i'd definitely second recommendations for bespoke shirts. I work for a tailoring company and it's always a delight to see a customer wearing a shirt that fits them after years of shirts being too big! There's a lot of bespoke out there now for the same price as high end off-the-peg and it really is worth it

Ha. I agree.

If you have an "odd" body shape, go MTM or bespoke for a good fit.

For casual shirts RTW, I've found Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci to be slim fitting

For dress shirts RTW, RLPL, Thomas Pink Super Slim, Hawes & Curtis slim-fit (though not amongst the upper echelons of Savile)

Good question. I've been paying about $42 per shirt with ModernTailor. That's with shipping and thin MOP buttons ($45 with thick) and their SF coupon, buying only the weekly sale fabrics.

I'm curious what other people are paying for MTM with the other services. That is, including shipping and whatever basic extra features are essential and whatever coupons are out there and choosing the less expensive fabrics, what do you actually pay per shirt? I imagine ModernTailor is hard to beat but maybe I'm wrong.

I'm searching for a casual, slim fitting shirt with a club collar. The MTM websites I've come across don't offer that option, unfortunately. For reference, I do like the ralph lauren custom fit shirts in size large, although I think the arms are a bit to wide.

Anyone got any ideas on where to find a suitable shirt?


Thanks

I haven't tried other MTM services, but Modern Tailor seems alright. I've got the fit almost right away and I consider $40-50 for a shirt that fits me almost perfectly very cheap. Any experience with their suits? Is it worth getting one or are they low quality?

In the last week or so, I have bought 'slim' fit shirts from Brooks Brother, DKNY, Club Monaco, and Banana Republic.

Club Monaco is the slimest of them all while the others still do a serviceable job.

Looks like I will be replacing all my dress shirts.

I've used modern tailor, cottonworks and bawden bespoke. I really like the pricepoint of the first two, but they just dont compare in quality to bawden. Last shirt I paid $106 usd

Woah! Before you plunge in, make sure you wash the CM shirt a few times - initially it may look OK, but who knows after 2 dozen washes???

Yes when I bought CM shirts (4 years ago) they didn't hold up well to washing. Also the material was thin, flimsy and paper-like.

I pay anywhere from $90 to $145 for bespoke shirts at my local tailor. I can touch and feelk the fabric and if he doesn't get it right he alters it free. I don't like the hassle of sending measurements online. If the measurements are not spot-on you will have to pay for alterations locally. The price approaches what I pay, minus the headache.
