    If you mean showing a slight "x" across the chest, it is a tad tighter there but the not uncomfortable right.

    As for the arms, should I taper 1/2 inch laid flat (1 inch in circumference) on the biceps and forearms? Is that too aggressive? Maybe .25 inch laid flat ( .5 inch in circumference)?

    Thanks!

    A inch is a lot. Too much and it won't be wearable. Start small I always say.

    With respect to sitting down, I was referring more to the buttons across your stomach area. If a shirt is too tight there they will ripple and buckle, and it won't be comfortable.

    Try pinching the excess fabric while you are wearing and see how much extra you might be able to part with.

    It's tough to tell in the pic but I think the shoulder width could be brought in quite a bit, unless my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    so I guess .25 inch laid flat (1/2 inch in circumference) is better to start with? As far as sitting down wise, it's fine. thanks.

    I did that on my last order and the difference was definitely noticeable. I agree that you should start small and work your way up.

    +1 to what lachyzee said: an inch is a lot. Also, Luxire can adjust in increments smaller than what's listed on their website. I've adjusted forearms by .125", and it's more noticeable than one would think.

    If you can upload a better picture that doesn't involve you holding the camera, we will be able to advise you on the chest/shoulders/yoke. Too hard to tell like that.

    Please keep us updated on the comparing fits.
    It would be great if you can post pics of you in both shirts.
    Thanks.

    I asked Theresa about this and she said that while the way they take measurements is very similar, the way those measurements are then turned into patterns for actual construction differ from company to company.

    I figured so as well.
    It may be best to send in the shirt and have it replicated...

    Anyone have damage to their clothing that was sent in to be copied?

    Luxire, all the shirts I've got from you have two pleats at the cuff.
    What's your experience with a single pleat cuff, does it help to clean up the silhouette for those who prefer a very slim shirt/sleeve?
