Moderntailor recommendations

Gonna try out the 19.99 shirt soon and wanted some opinions.

This is, in my opinion, the shirt that most resembles what I would like. Now obviously the chest on this one is tight, but I like how it is through the waist. I like very minimal fabric near the waist/belt and really do not like the billowing that can happen at the lower back. This and the 1mx from express is the closest I've found OTR that doesn't have big billowing on me. As you can maybe see, a wide top and relatively narrow waist makes it difficult to me to find something that fits reasonably OTR, hence wanting to try moderntailor.

Again, I know the shirt in these pictures doesn't fit well in the chest, but I would appreciate your recommendations for measurement adjustments based on this shirt, which is the one that I am planning on going off of.

Thanks!

Why isn't this tucked? It could probably be lengthened a little.

Just to get a full fit view, I guess.

Here is the brooksbrother slim fit, whereas the first post was extra slim. I had darts put on this to try and bring it in some more. I think it looks like absolute shit compared to my the extra slim. What do you think?

I feel like I made a shirt from a shower curtain.

To the first post...I'm thinking add 1.5 inches to the chest and maybe an inch to the shoulder/yoke. What do you think?

Moderntailor has been a complete salvation for me. My moderntailor shirts fits much better than anything that I've ever been able to get RTW, including the baggy BB slimfit.

To give you some context I wear a 16.5 - 35 RTW shirt size, 44R jacket, and 36 pant.

My modertailor sizing (use it as a guide if you wish) is as follows:

1
\tCollar \t17.25"
2
\tHalf Chest \t 24"
3
\tHalf Waist \t22"
4
\tHalf Hip \t24.5"
5 \tLeft Sleeve Length 26"\t
Right Sleeve Length \t26"
6
\tHalf Bicep \t9"
7 \tLeft Cuffs \t9.5"
Right Cuffs \t9.25"
8
\tYoke \t21"
9
\tShoulder 7.25" \t
10
\tShirt Length 34"\t
11
\tArmhole \t11.25"
12
\tShort Sleeve Length 9"



Can you post a pic of you wearing one?
