    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I think it definitely needs to be longer. I don't like how it flares out at the sides at the bottom, and there's something wrong with the armhole or shoulder area.

    I think overall it looks great. It might come untucked easily, as it appears a bit short. Plus the forearm area of the sleeves look a bit full. Other than that, great first shirt.

    Yeah there's no way it'll stay tucked.

    Looks pretty good for a first round.

    Yeah, too short and also might want to add a little to the sleeve hole (connection with shoulder)...looks a bit tight under your arm...

    I have bought a few from nialma - they should be able to help you out with it.

    Good luck.

    way off.
    yoke measurement is too short. armhole seems too small.
    body seems to big....

    Pretty awful fit. I cannot think of anything that's right - maybe sleeve length? Not to mention that point collar is ugly as hell

    Agree that the shirt should be longer. The sleeves on the shirt look just right but wouldn't it shrink after a couple of washes?

    I don't think it is that bad for a first try...

    Add some length, broaden the shoulders and definitely make the armhole bigger...

    I reckon the collar is fine - especially if wearing as an open neck.

    Not too bad at all for a first go at your measurements.

    Carl, do you mean that the yoke is not wide enough or high enough?

    +1

    What do you mean by the yoke being off?

    They're: (1) making the cuffs smaller and narrowing the forearms, (2) increasing the length by 2", (3) increasing shoulders by .5", (4) increasing armhole by 1", (5) adding darts in the back.

    your photos are not great.
    shirt #2 will be better with those changes.

    Shirtmaven, I will probably try your shirts next, since you seem to be very critical and have a discerning eye.

    How should I improve my photos for future MTM options?

    Yeah there's no way I can wear it tucked and it's too tight in the armhole area. There seems to be a lot less excess material in the chest and back compared to my mytailors though. However, my mytailors were made between an Italian slim fit and regular fit style. My Nialma seems to be a really slim-fitted shirt.
