    How are you measuring sleeve length? From the middle of the back? Here's some guidance on how to properly measure it. Thanks. Any other questions, don't hesitate...


    To determine sleeve length, it is important that your arm is at your side and slightly bent at the elbow. Here is where it is best to have a friend at hand. Place the end of the tape measure at the middle of the back of your neck; go across the shoulder, and down the outside of your arm to just below the wrist bone.

    You're a "Small." The sleeves can be shortened by your tailor.

    For everyone's reference here are the yoke measurements, too:

    SML 18 (corrected)

    MED 19

    LGE 20

    XLG 21

    XXL 22

    Please note the colors will meld considerably (and beautifully and dramatically) with laundering. Here's examples of 3 patterns before and after laundering. The 1st set is the material before laundering. The 2nd: The same fabric (and the same order), after 10 launderings. Please also note that I can not guarantee that's what they WILL EXACTLY look like after repeated launderings. Each fabric will meld in its own fashion. These are only to suggest the effect. That's the beauty and the art! Some have remarked that they don't look good in yellows, for instance. As you can see the yellows mute considerably.The dye does not so much wash out, as blend. You're not going to wind up with a white shirt

    INCORRECT YOKE MEASUREMENT FOR "SMALL"

    The correct yoke measurement for a SMALL is 18", not 17". Its been corrected on Post #20. The others are correct. Our apologies.

    Thank you. Appreciate your order. You'll love your shirt. 2/80s cotton. It'll last forever, too. David Wood Clothiers in Portland, Maine, who sold out of his original 40 shirts, has ordered 40 more. So, he (and more importantly his customers) are pleased; their David Wood has been in the business 40 years; and (like me) is old enough to remember what they were in the 1960s. He says that ours are the Real McCoy. Thanks, again.

    What a PITA. Paid Aleck for a couple of lengths of fabric three months ago. He hasn't delivered on one and has said he won't issue a refund, as $28 would be too much for him right now (??!!). Apparently I'm supposed to wait indefinitely for something I paid for three months ago.

    For anyone buying, I recommend paying with some kind of credit card, so you have buyer's protection.

    Cloth was terrible, anyway. You can get the same stuff from Atlantis for about $5/ yard (yes, it's bleeding). The fabric can then be sent to any custom shirtmaker.

    LOL, Aleck said he's going to send what I wrote above to his attorneys.
