Shirt Querstion for Alex Kabbaz, part II

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Is it me or are the sleeves too baggy? I think the sleeve length is ok, no? Do the side slits line up? Does the bottom of the skirt look straight from the front / rear? As well should the shirt be tighter, or is the body fit fine? (the shirt is 100% Linen, btw) Anything else I missed would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the angled shot, I took this one, does the slit line up at the bottom i.e. straight, or is it uneven? : Right sleeve, laid flat (Should the sleeves "˜arch' like that at the bottom or should they be straight?): Left sleeve, laid flat (Should the sleeves "˜arch' like that at the bottom or should they be straight?): Thanks. Jon.

Dear Jon, This is not something I can do with photos of this quality. Also, assuming this shirt is bespoke, my policy has always been to refrain from commenting upon the work of other shirtmakers, either online or in person. I do not consider it to be ethical. Alex

It is not bespoke. It is a recut RLPL. This is simply the pictures I was going to take for: http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....;t=9364 Jon.

The shirt looks fine. Remember linen should be fuller cut then cotton. IT creases and the sleves tend to bunch up by the end of the day because of that. Enjoy it in the hot weather. Carl

Thanks for the response, Why is linen cut fuller than cotton? You would think that with all the wrinkles, it would be cut slimmer so it looks straighter at the end of the day. As well, that picture was taken just after I ironed the shirt, so it looks like that right out of the closet...taking that into consideration is it too baggy? Jon.

I just think Linen looks best full and comfortable. I trim linen shirts just does not seem right. IMO the wrinkles and fullness give linen shirts their appeal.

I see. I am amazingly slim however, so what might look good on a "˜normal' sized person does not in fact look good on me. Jon.
