    I agree with this. When I first started getting MTM shirts years ago, I tried to get that GQ look and all my sleeves were too slim. Would have looked great for a fashion shoot, but I ripped holes in the elbows on all of them within months. I know better now :)

    Looks great mrjester. If I didn't have so many gingham shirts already I might add that to my list. Wear it in good health!

    We will charge $30 extra for any other shade except the raw shade.

    Yes, you can share an image of the desired shade. The exact same cannot be guaranteed, but will be similar .

    From the shirts, we can possible copy the yoke measurement and possibly the sleeve length can be derived.

    We would not know how the shirt fits as compared to how the jacket should. It is better that you provide measurements. The reversible would cost $200

    Luxire,

    I'm preparing thoughts for a prospective order (trousers and shirts). My question: Is there a limit to the extent to which I can customise the specifications? Ideally, I would wish to specify more or less every detail—this would not be to undermine your working style, but rather to prevent the headaches and issues of miscommunication I've previously experienced with online MTM (and to satisfy my OCD).

    For example, with trouser pleats I notice you tend you set them with a gap approx. 0.75" below the waistband seam, in more of an Italian style. Instead, would you be willing to set pleats into the waistband with no gap between or exterior stitching, as in the picture below on the right?

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, you tend to stitch the fly at a width of 1.5", presumably to match your shirt plackets of the same width. Instead, could I request a slightly narrower 1.375" fly (and shirt placket, for that matter)?

    These are just two examples of customisation that come to mind. However, upon ordering, there would be many more.

    It looks as if this worked out fairly well, but I'm curious if you now wish that you had added more of your own custom specs. I have also just ordered a shirt with a collar height of 1.75" (Semi-spread). They told me that they would just adjust everything else so that it would be right. It seemed easiest to just give it a shot, so we'll see. I considered the English spread, but I thought it might be too wide once the height was increased.

    What is the base price? 75$?

    OK, thanks for all the help concerning denim shirts. :)

    I need input regarding measurements.
    I quite like the fit and feel comfortable in the shirt, any excess fabric anywhere? Anything that needs to be less tight?

    I would slightly reduce the shoulder width, yoke and armhole.
    I would drastically reduce the biceps measurement/slim the entire sleeve.
    The fits looks fine in the torso.

    Which fabric is the shirt?

    Thanks you two.


    Fabric:
    Sky Blue Hairline Stripes


    I am comfortable sitting down, doesnt feel tight around the waist or the chest.


    Overall, my impression was similar to Louis, there seems to be quite a bit of excess fabric in the biceps area.

    I'm gonna disagree with this slightly. I would reduce the yoke as indicated above and leave the armhole as it is. It looks about right to me in the pictures posted. I would also only slightly reduce the width of the sleeves throughout, if at all. There doesn't appear to be an inordinate amount of extra fabric through the arms. And a shirt fitting like this is much more comfortable when moving and bending your arms than the alternative IME. On another note, I'd probably suggest ordering/buying trousers with a higher rise[​IMG]

    Horses for courses, I guess.
    To me there is an obvious disbalance between a slim torso and wide sleeves.
    That disbalance makes the shirt look off.
    I prefer a slim shirt, so I suggested to have the sleeves slimmed.
    Of course one could also argue to widen the torso according to the sleeves.
    Spurious will know best which cut he prefers.

    Sleeves don't look too bad to my eye, maybe slim the bicep area very slightly. Be careful not to slim it any further at the middle part of the sleeve though, like emptym said above, slimming sleeves too much will most likely result in a lot of busted elbows. Make sure you can bend your arms comfortably without the fabric pulling across your elbow, because if it's pulling too tightly in that area then it's probably too small of a measurement.

    I disagree with "drastically" slimming the sleeves. Slim them only slightly. They look fine and a very slight slimming down will present a nice compromise of looks and comfort. Armholes are fine. Any higher and they might become uncomfortable and "cut" into you when you hold your arms forward.

    Shoulders too wide
    Biceps can do with a little slimming 0.25-0.5 inches off
    Dart the back to cleanup the bunching

    Sure but ultimately I'd be pleased with this shirt. I'd start by .25" since it looks great already.
