(VersaceMan @ 28 July 2004, 01:50) Thanks for all the replies, fellas. Â I just can't wait to get this shirt. Â I don't know if you checked out the measurments I gave, but I have a 17.5" neck and a 38" chest, and 31" waist. Â I've never been able to find a RTW shirt that fits in both the chest/waist and neck. Â Custom seems like the only choice for me, so I hope that this Jantzen shirt deal works for me.
let me know how it fits when you get it - i have 17.5 - 43 - 32; and just as you noted can NEVER wear a R2W - for now i buy them off the rack and then pay 4 CDN to taper the back take in the sides / sleeves and raise the arm holes. what a pain
I've got a couple of questions regarding tailoring shirts. I think custom shirts are great, but I would love to be able to purchase nice RTW shirts such as T&A and H&K. In the past, I have taken the sides of some of my own shirts in. However, this solves only the problem of bagginess below the arms. The shirts still fit huge in the chest (or area above the arm holes). Also, the sleeves are cut large. Have you found that a tailor can reduce the problems that I mentioned?
