Hi,
Any opinions and critique about this MTM shirt are welcome. What would you modify to make it a better fit? I was after slim fit casual shirt that would be worn untucked. The shirt has been washed twice. I feel the shoulder width might be slightly too wide. The shirt could also be slightly longer (~1cm) even though untucked. The hem could also be slightly tighter. What do you think? And what are your thoughts in general about wearing casual shirts untucked?
(The crooked posture is because of scoliosis.)

Don't like:

-Color
-Pocket
-Etc

I wear casual shirts untucked all the time. That looks like a dress//casual shirt morphed into something and I am not sure what it became.

Thanks for the feedback. What modifications would you recommend to make it a better fit? The tailor promises free modifications if the shirt doesn't fit. They even make completely new shirt if the modifications are not possible. I have 7 days left to decide so I highly appreciate any input.
Changes I am currently considering:
- wider waist
- shirt hem could go slightly lower (my measures placed it lower)
- buttons need to be light grey (they looked much lighter color in the shirt designer)
- maybe change hem from straight cut to modern cut?

The fabric is pinpoint oxford cotton (weight:
140 g/m2, yarn:80/2). That should be fine for
OCBD shirt?

cant tell much about the fabric. but seems off

need to work on shoulder slopes.
also
chest +1-2"
waist 1-2

hip + 2

longer by at least 1.5"
the square bottom works with only certain types of fabric.

the collar is all wrong for a square bottom.
and a BD collar is also wrong for a square bottom

+1 all the above.

The fabric is probably better for a true dress/business shirt not casual shirt. So it looks like you got a dress shirt and simply straight-cut the bottom, trying to pull it off as casual. It doesn't work and my eyes keep squinting,wondering.

I mean, technically, your tailor can make it "fit" with some alterations here and there, but it's still off...

And I know I said this already, but that's a BAD color for a casual shirt IMO.

it might be perfect. just really bad lighting????

to much taper at the waist for an untucked casual shirt.

who picked fabric?
collar style?
square bottom?

if it was you?
then the shirtmaker needs to talk you out of such bad decisions

Looks sky blue on my monitor.

Op, I'd call that a write-off as a casual, untucked shirt. I think it would look okay tucked in though if it will stay. Put it under a sport jacket and get some use out of it is what I'd do.
