I ordered this shirt online a few weeks ago, should I do any measurement changes for my next order?


(I'm too slim, I know)

Please comment! And yeah, I want the shirt to be fitted!

Sorry if I posted this thread in the wrong place.

is there extra material around your upper arm? Looks like some excess there. Sleeve length looks a hair too long. Otherwise, good looking fit.

It looks pretty good. If you want fitted, you might ask for slimmer sleeves.

Ok, thanks!

Minus one inch on the sleeve length, minus one inch on the upper part of the arm and minus an half inch on the lower part of the arm, something like that maybe?

More like minus 1/4 to 1/2 inch on sleeve length, particularly if you have not washed the one in the pic yet.

I'm going to order some new shirts tomorrow, these are the changes I made so far:
Arm length - minus 0,5 inch
Upper arm - minus 1 inch
Lower arm - minus 0,5 inch

Here is a new picture of me wearing the shirt tucked in, see anything more I should change?



I think it looks a little big in the back, how can I change this? Make the chest part of the shirt smaller?
Or maybe add some (upper) back pleats?

Please help me out with this.

The onlinestore I order my shirts from does/can not add darts I'm afraid.
So is there something else I can do about the fit?

I can't add darts, so if no one else have any idea of what I should change I guess I just do the arm adjustments and order the shirts then!

Order what you like, then have it darted by a tailor. It isn't that expensive.

+1. I think one of the tailors near me charges something like $8.50 for darts.
