    Hi Xizenta, thank you for your post. Will keep that in mind and try to post more pictures of actual shirts with the fabric if a client happens to make a shirt.
    Thanks

    What's the weight on this? They look like flannel to me.

    I have seen a very similar (almost exactly the same) suit in a store and was interested in it, but I was concerned the the pattern would be loud. However, the suit looks really good on you.

    Hi Alex and Chris.

    My answers are as follows:
    1) I would like to see more oxford clothes as well as bengal stripes. Regarding collour, white, light blue and mid blue for the oxford shirts and light blue, mid blue, navy blue, pink and gray for the stripes. Also I would like to see the choices for collars.
    2) Super 100 worsted wool, prince of wales check wool and wool-mohair.
    3) Actually I don't like either models or 3D renderings. I prefer photos of the actual product folded or fitted to a taylor dummy. Also I would like to see more info about the fabrics.

    Thank you.

    Hey guys!

    I received today the shirts I won at the last contest. They are amazing!

    First of all, thanks to Chris and Alex, cause we exchangd some emails with the shirt details in order to get them exactly the way I wanted and they service is absolutely fantastic. The time zone is a limitant but they responded to every single mail I sent them, very kind and professional, thanks for that.

    As for the shirts, the fabrics are very nice. I asked for the blue oxford that is listed and a plain light blue that Chris sent me via email that they had available. You all will have to excuse me about the pics but I was in a rush cause I had a meeting, but I couldn't resist, I ironed the oxford and wore it to the meeting. Gave me luck cause the deal closed.

    The site is very friendly. You create a profile and the videos of how to take your measurements are very simple and easy to understand. I used the measuring an existing shirt method cause I know my measurements. What I like is that you can get a lot of detail, because for example in the chest area, I have bigger lats than chest so I need my shirt to be longer in the back part but no exceeding the 45", otherwise the fit would be compromised. This feature is stock in their system, they ask you for the full chest but they as you to measure from the back part so it fits perfectly.

    When you already select the fabric and start with the customization, the options are a lot. I selected a type of collar but ask them if they could replicate one style of collar that I like, they said yes and I sent them the pic of the collar with the measurements and it came out fantastic!

    The workmanship is great to. Buttonholes are really well made, the stitches and all of that is gorgeous. The collar is very soft, I didn't make an special request on the stiffness but it's very soft. I'm not that great at writing reviews buty you should give Moda Republic a try. Thanks again Chris and Alex, and some pics to follow. [​IMG]

    We actually have THICK MoP buttons as an option at an additional cost of $5, and they are real MoP buttons as well!

    While some may disagree with us, we chose to shy away from the really thin cheap MoP buttons that some shirt providers use for the sake of saying they have MoP. When we first started Moda Republic, MoP was our default but some clients didn't care about them and also found they chip and break really easily. So instead, we found high quality plastic buttons for our standard shirts, and those who really appreciate beautiful MoP buttons can have that option as well. :)

    Hi edwardthefirst:

    Here's a sample of our thick MoP buttons as a reference, which I think are currently superior to what our other competition is offering. Any thicker though and they would be hard to button up.

    We have two varieties right now, plain white MoP, and smoked MoP buttons.

    The smoked ones looks beautiful but we always remind people that because they are indeed natural, the shade of grey on each individual button will vary!

    Thanks!


    Thanks! Will try to get some fit pics without the jacket. I'm a bit fat because of my bulking season so the waist is a bit tight, but I considered this shirts for my normal weight.


    For sure! :D Best part is that I haven't received a customs notification or something like that so yes for next shirts I will be ordering from you.
