    I've received a custom-made shirt. Could you please have a look and comment on the changes, if any, which in your view are necessary to the measurements. I just would like to order more shirts from the same tailor and would appreciate a second opinion. Thanks a lot.

    Besides it needing to be pressed and washed if it hasn't already I would say it fits just fine. Looks great on you, very well fitted.

    You've been a member since 2007 and this is your first post?

    Shirt looks good to me. Though someone will inevitably say it needs to be more slim.

    I might have chosen a different collar, but that's just personal preference.

    There's some pulling across along the top button, you may need to widen the shoulder or the chest. It may become more noticeable after the first wash. Overall it looks great, especially the waist, just the right amount of fabric in my opinion.

    Looks nice, and nice collar, but since it's a custom shirt it has too much fabric on the waist.

    Next time ask for more waist reduction there.

    I think the shirt looks fine as is, I don't like them too slim. I'd shorten the pants though.

    looks good. Could maybe take a little off the waist area but it's still pretty trim. Collar style is a personal choice but you may find with a jacket on that there's a gap between the sides of the collar and the lapels. Looks like some slight pulling around the chest and shoulders, so little too narrow?

    Have you tried crossing your arms, bending down to tie your shoes, lifting something up to a shelf above you?

    Many thanks for all the comments.

    Re collar: yes, it was first thing I was going to change. I thought I had chosen a wider one in the first place.

    Re measurements: OK, I'll see after a couple of washings whether to add a tad to shoulder area and reduce at waist.

    Otherwise for 75 euros I think it's not too bad and the fabric is quite nice.

    I think it looks pretty good. I wouldn't take it in at all. Might wanna get a more colorful tie tho ;-)

    [​IMG] I've grabbed first things from the wardrobe. But thanks for comments on the tie and old pants.
