My first attempt with tailorstore. The shirt has not been washed yet, but has been ironed once.



Comments:
This is one of the cheapest fabrics, but acceptable given the low price.

There appears to be some bunching around the shoulders. How do I correct this? I think the shirt is a bit narrow/high at the armpits.
By the way - I'm 193 cm (6'4") and weigh 70 kg (154 lbs).

Details:
Slim fit, classic collar. Fabric: Oxford, 100% cotton.

Neck\t42 cm \t16.5 "
Shoulders\t46 cm \t18.1 "
Chest\t92 cm \t36.2 "
Waist\t82 cm \t32.3 "
Length to waist \t46 cm \t18.1 "
Buttocks\t91 cm \t35.8 "
Lenth to buttocks \t72 cm \t28.3 "
Hips\t87 cm \t34.3 "
Length of lap \t63 cm \t24.8 "
Sleeve length \t72 cm \t28.3 "
Wrist\t19 cm \t7.5 "
Biceps \t28 cm \t11 "
Shirt length \t72 cm \t28.3 "

Sorry for my english. English is not my native language.

Based on the picture, the body seems fine while the sleeves appear to be a tag long.

  • Sleeves are significantly too long
  • Shoulders look too wide
  • If it is impinging in the armholes, looks like you could use a bit of relief across the chest

The sleeves seem to be too long, but I guess it is okay to leave it as it is if you are planning to roll it up while you wear it.

The sleeves are quite long. I think I'll take 3-4 cm. off them (1-1½") and 1-2 cm. off the shoulders for the next shirt.

Would a bit of relief across the chest fix the bunching problem?

If you chose a cheaper fabric, shrinkage is a greater possibility.

Wash and wear it several more times before you change the specs for future shirts.

are you wearing a black t-shirt underneath?

wash the shirt, press the shirt,
then take photos where your arms are relaxed.

sleeves are way too long and the cuffs seem rather stiff.
you have a low right shoulder. not sure if they can adjust for that.
