Slim Fit Shirts Versus Regular Fit Shirts - Page 2

post #16 of 17
The problem is that once you start down the path of altering a shirt by a tailor, you really start to destroyed the original intended look/cut/style. This is why I think it's best to alter the shirts that fit you the best if you do decide to take it to a tailor.

If I buy a classic calvin klein, and then a slim fit calvin klein, but both will need to be taken in, will they both "look the same" after tailoring?

Yes. A classic fit shirt on me will need to be taken in so much at the sides that the pocket will be in the wrong place. In addition, the extent and cost of the alterations would go up. And some things are not easily alterable. Such as arm hole size, pocket placement, sleeve length.

But to the average person, no ones going to notice. But why would you even bother tailoring such a cheap piece of clothing? The cost would be about 1/2 what you paid for it. Is it even worth it? I would say no. If cost if your concern, just find something that fits you pretty well OTR and live with it in your price point.

Otherwise, you should get MTM. I get MTM because I have a 10" drop on a 5'6" frame.
