Buy one shirt of each type.
Wear the shirts.
Decide which has the look and feel you prefer.
Opening it up to opinions isn't likely to prove anywhere near as helpful as the above. And what's the big downside? That you'll wind up being out the price of one shirt whose look or fit you don't love? Meh, that's not such a steep price to pay for having learned something genuinely useful. Particularly since even a shirt which you don't love may still be perfectly wearable.
Besides, one of the things about custom clothing is that it often takes a modest amount of trial and error, before you zero in on exactly what makes you happiest, and who can best provide it.
