I received today the shirts I won at the last contest. They are amazing!
First of all, thanks to Chris and Alex, cause we exchangd some emails with the shirt details in order to get them exactly the way I wanted and they service is absolutely fantastic. The time zone is a limitant but they responded to every single mail I sent them, very kind and professional, thanks for that.
As for the shirts, the fabrics are very nice. I asked for the blue oxford that is listed and a plain light blue that Chris sent me via email that they had available. You all will have to excuse me about the pics but I was in a rush cause I had a meeting, but I couldn't resist, I ironed the oxford and wore it to the meeting. Gave me luck cause the deal closed.
The site is very friendly. You create a profile and the videos of how to take your measurements are very simple and easy to understand. I used the measuring an existing shirt method cause I know my measurements. What I like is that you can get a lot of detail, because for example in the chest area, I have bigger lats than chest so I need my shirt to be longer in the back part but no exceeding the 45", otherwise the fit would be compromised. This feature is stock in their system, they ask you for the full chest but they as you to measure from the back part so it fits perfectly.
When you already select the fabric and start with the customization, the options are a lot. I selected a type of collar but ask them if they could replicate one style of collar that I like, they said yes and I sent them the pic of the collar with the measurements and it came out fantastic!
The workmanship is great to. Buttonholes are really well made, the stitches and all of that is gorgeous. The collar is very soft, I didn't make an special request on the stiffness but it's very soft. I'm not that great at writing reviews buty you should give Moda Republic a try. Thanks again Chris and Alex, and some pics to follow.
