I made a post about two weeks my first MTM shirt http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ue+from+Nialma . I gave the measurements from a shirt and not from my body so its my fault. This is the second shirt they made for me. Its been washed. The only problem I have is the arm holes are too small and its hurting arm pit and the sleeve looks a bit long. So i will probably increase the measurements by 1/2''. Sorry for the bad quality pictures.

This was the same problem I had with the shirt I got from Nialma, except mine was much worse than yours, it's unwearable. Overall yours doesn't look too bad though...

Looks too tight across the chest, esp between 2nd and 3rd non-collar buttons.

i just looked on their site and am thinking about ordering.
Did you choose a slim fit? Looks slightly tight on your chest, I would also go 0.5 inches more there.

Inside their measurements section, you can choose your 'armhole'. I think you need to make this bigger if its hurting

Your sleeves look like they could be shortened by 3/4 ". And your collar stands a bit high for your neckline. The top of the collar sits right against your jowls. Might be the way you're standing. But it's a nice shirt.
