Am gonna take the plunge and order a couple of shirts from www.tailorstore.com, but before I do that I need to take my measurements. I request the help of the friendly citizens here at styleforums to make sure that I didn't boo-boo too much when measuring. I used a shirt I got tailored locally and that fits me pretty well as the sample. I'm terrified that I did something wrong, especially since the numbers are totally different from their standard shirt size L. (http://www.tailorstore.com/us/en/mea...es/popup/?inch) I'm 5 ft 7, weigh about 190 lbs, slightly plump around the middle (okay, lets just say I have a beer belly) If I buy OTR I can fit into 16 1/2/ 33-34 pretty decently. (all measurements are in inches, and are taken from the pdf supplied - http://www.tailorstore.com/us/en/men...asurements.pdf 1. Collar size - 16 3/4 2. Chest width - 22 3. Waist width - 20 1/2 4. Bottom width - 21 1/2 5. Shirt length - 31 6. Sleeve length - 24 7. Back width - 18 9. Armpit width - 9 1/2 10. Cuff width - 9 Do these seem right to you? I guess if I made slight errors in measuring it's my own fault, but I just want to know if I got any of the measurements grossly wrong (e.g. I measured the wrong part) Oh, and one question - does selecting 'ladies long' give turnback/milanese/bond cuffs? Thanks awfully in advance!
