    What exactly is a perfectly fitting shirt supposed to look like? Does anybody have a picture of a shirt that fits perfectly? Is there even such a thing as a shirt that fits perfectly (short of an Alexander Kabbaz i suppose)? It would be really helpful for comparing custom shirts that forum members purchase if there were a picture of a perfectly fitting shirt somewhere, and preferebly one that somebody actually owns, not something from a catalog that might be pinned in the back. Thanks.

    Perfection is an idealistic theory, an ongoing aspiration, and, overarchingly, judged by the viewer.

    Can you just imagine the outcry if someone were to post a photo of a garment and label it "perfect"?

    I think the real fear here is that someone will post a picture of what they feel to be a perfect fitting shirt, and then have their ideal torn to shreds by people who will not post a picture.

    Yup. You're right. It's kinda like pink socks. [​IMG]

    I wonder if I sent Jantzen that photo if he could copy the shirt. [​IMG]
