    These are my tailor's attempts to provide me with something I find very hard to come by - well fitting normal clothing. What do SF'er's think? Apologies for the pic quality, took them on webcam.

    This one's a slim (or slimmer) fit, and a bit flashy, with oxford fabric and contrast placket.

    As a side note, the contrast cuff placket is a little feature I like with my dress shirts, it's not too obnoxious but gives the eye something to look at when the hand is raised.

    I didn't think there could possibly be anything worse than the quality of those photos, until I saw the "contrast placket". These shirts look absolutely terrible.

    yeah i agree contrast is not good at all like a thick line in front of shirt... also it seems that shirt is like a rectangular, it's tight at the chest and level stays same through the waist. chest should be a little bit larger to give a good look. you may try to take a little at the waist if it's not already too tight. especially it seems that shirt has high armholes (hard to say from pics)

    +1

    The shirt fits like a box with too much space down low (unless you are built like a box). That contrast stripe looks absolutely terrible--sorry. However, the pictures are so bad that I can't even tell the color or fabric of the shirt so maybe it looks better in person. Try taking some better pictures.

    The contrast placket is not too cool. But heck, judging by the OP's name he hails from England, perhaps styles have changed since I was last there.

    Placket looks awful, I agree. Shirt seems to fit fine, but the photos are really bad, it's hard to tell much of anything (except how awful the placket looks. To the OP...avoid plackets like this in the future!)
