I had my tailor alter this shirt, is it too tight?

It doesn't look like it...just a really slim cut.  Only you know how it feels though.

It looks too tight to me. I can see the grey portions of the underlying panel sticking out intermittently due to the pulling. You're gonna feel really uncomfortable and restricted when u throw your shoulders back even just a little and when pulling your arms back.

I certainly think it's too tight.

Then again, there are people - some of them on SF - who find nothing wrong with clothing which strikes me as ridiculously tight. So whatever answer it is you want to hear, I'm sure you'll hear it from various parties.

more pictures. Side picture and back. Looks tight. Your clothes should drape nicely over your body. There shouldn't be streaks on the garment. Btw can u button the neck?

There isn't a consensus on the tightness of casual shirts. If you are under 40, then your peers will probably not think twice about it. More a matter of preference than anything.

If you can sit down and feel that your buttons are not going to pop off, you are probably ok.

I can button the neck. Here it is from the back, sorry no side pic.

 

It was taken in by the tailor who went WAY to far, he's already redone it once but looks like its still too tight?

 

When he was pinning I thought he was going to take it in at the sides & add the darts, but when I look at the shirt the stitching at the sides looks fairly normal. I don't understand is how the shirt suddenly got so small :brick:

 

I'm NOT under 40 (52) but look younger.

Definitely too tight.  The front is questionable but the back view seals it.

It's back at the tailor. Fingers crossed.

 

That back pic shows my sloped shoulder pretty clearly tbh.

It looks like cotton and cotton doesn't usually "heal" from stitch marks the way that wool does, so if he let's the darts back out, you'll most likely always see the former stitching.

After seeing the back picture, I definitely agree with the others...much too tight.

Your first thought must have been, it is to tight. But since you've invested in alterations, you don't want it to be. I'm sorry to be the bearer....it appears uncomfortable and that your trying to hard to show off your vary well sculped upper....

Clothes are supposed to make you look good this is why we're all here. We've progressed beyond basic warmth :)

 

When the tailor first pinned it it was not tight whatsoever. Post alterations I tried it on and it was WAY too tight - it's already been let out once in the picture you're looking at.

 

So it's fair to say the tailor made a mistake - this is what I wanted to establish here.

 

With that done the the shirt is back with him to be fixed for a second time. Unfortunately summer is now over and I'll have little use for it until next year.
