    Here's another view with top collar buttoned as well. Might help gauge the fit.

    i think it looks fine, maybe take in the waist just a tad. do the sleeves seem short?

    how was the process overall and did you get your true size/measurements? I am interested.

    confused as to which collar to get haha. first time :embar:

    Sleeves seem ok, wouldn't want them any shorter though so I might add a tad on just to account for potential variance and shrinkage.

    As far as accuracy, I was very meticulous when I first ordered (going off of another shirt I had that fit well while making minor tweaks), and when I measured the shirt they delivered, I was happily surprised at how well it matched my initial measurements.

    Oh so you went off measurements from another shirt. I think that is the best route. I looked at their size chart for a slim fit 'S' and :butbut:

    thank you for posting this, i will give it a try now!! :slayer:

    Btw, do you remember which collar you got? the 'Classic'? All these other options look bad/i am inexperienced with.

    I would probably go either 'classic medium', 'button down med', or 'italian' MAYBE the 'cut away' collar

    Fit looks good. I would say take the waist in a little, however, it is personal preference. Sleeves may be a tad short, especially when you consider jacket arm length/how much cuff you want to show with a jacket.

    I thought sleeves were supposed to be around the wristbone when buttoned?

    It's hard to gauge correct sleeve length without seeing them with cuffs unbuttoned, and/or with arms bent at 90 deg.

    Also, the medium cutaway collar with 8cm points (you need to ask for this) is ideal.

    Well since he used shirt measurements MT requests that you set the fit to regular. Slim fit is only used for body measurements (not recommended) + RTW shirts.
