I have taken on a lot of new anxiety after reading through countless thread on StyleForum and AAAC about shirt measurement and fittings. What are the things one should be looking for when getting measured and trying on a test shirt? I like to not only rely on my tailors opinion, but own opinion as well.
My experience with bespoke shirt makers has so far been limited to Hamilton through Barney's. I like to believe the shirts fit me fairly well, however, my knowledge of what a proper fitting shirt looks like is limited. The sales person, while decent, was in no way comparable to a true tailor. At the time of my order, I had not yet known about SF or AAAC. Knowing what I know now, I would have opted for a local shirtmaker such as Geneva, T&A NYC, Cego. I would have also been more aware of the types of fabrics I am choosing.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
