- Reaction score
I'm a tall, fairly thin man, such that even fitted OTS dress shirts leave too much extra fabric in the body. I intend to purchase several bespoke "basic" shirts over the next several months but I still have a closet full of shirts that I like very much and would like to have altered to fit better. MY question is, what's the best method of altering a shirt, darts or simply taking them in at the sides? I had not considered darts before reading about them on SF, thinking them appropriate only for women's blouses. I like my shirts and jackets to fit very closely; I'm average build with a 42L jacket and 34-36/36 trouser I understand that one may not be better than the other but if one is preferable I want to make sure I find a tailor who can do it. thanks!
