Hi All,

I am really really interested in how the measurement process for these tailors work. I am very skeptical about the fact that I can go to some tailor or measure myself and then submit my measurements to the company so that they could make me a shirt or suit etc.

If there is anyone out here that has actually ordered and come up with problems or has ordered and loved the way their clothing fit could you please tell me about it. Again, really what I am interested in is how you got measured or measured yourself and made sure that the measurements were exact so that the company could process your order and make it fit correctly.

Thanks so much for your time!

for modern tailor: measured myself, got sleeve too short. second order great, third order nearly perfect, fourth order (just ordered) should be perfect.

Musicguy: Digging your location tagline, especially after reading that thread that started out funny and then just turned sad.
Anyway, to the OP: I was measured and fitted to custom shirts for the first time today. I chose to have three shirts made in what are considered basic fabrics. I don't "piss" my money away but for approximately $145 each, I would rather deal with someone direct than submit my measurements online to a company that will in all probability screw things up
