    I'm hoping to get some MTM shirts in Thomas Mason silverline fabric.

    I will be ordering online going off an existing shirt.

    Any preference out of these two?

    MyTailor seems to have wider range of the Thomas Mason silverline but I'm guessing Nialma is faster...

    I, personally, havn't had very good experiences with either of them. The one shirt I got from Nialma was unwearably small, despite my using the same measurements as on every other site. I've had two shirts from MyTailor, the first one they used the wrong fabric and the second one they used the right fabric but the wrong side of it (the 'wrong' side of the fabric is facing out).

    Other people have had perfectly good experiences with both though, so maybe I'm just unlucky.

    I have no experience with Nialma, but I recently received two shirts from MyTailor, and I am very happy with them. Pictures here. The fit is excellent. I was measured irl by Joe Hemrajani, but I think that if you send a shirt you like, you should get good results.

    I'm very happy with MyTailor too. It can be hard to judge what the fabrics look like IRL, but otherwise they've been great. Pay extra for the thick MOP buttons. You're right though -- they are quite slow.

    Tough choice... Nialma I think I will get a better product and service but their TM Silverline range is very limited.

    More people on here seem to use mytailor but I think that may be because they can make an appointment?

    Once you've nailed the fit with mytailor, is the sizing pretty consistent?

    I say ModernTailor. I think it's cheaper too.

    I don't have experience with MyTailor or Nialma, but Modern Tailor has really stiff fusing in the collar and cuffs, and that's not even with selecting the stiff option.

    MyTailor is good overall. But for some reason the details are always wrong. Wrong buttons, collar style, etc. The buttons are sewed on very sloppy. They use to do a better job, seems like its gone down lately. One of the most annoyning issues lately, a shirt bled onto my other shirts while pre-soaking. 3 shirts now have blue stains.

    Totally agreed. I told them I wanted split yolk and wanted the cuff to be smaller but they forgot to do that.

    No, the problem was i supplied the material so they couldn't redo it.

    I've had good luck with both modertailor and mytailor -- both offer good shirts for reasonable prices. I suggest first getting a test shirt using basic inexpensive shirting. No MTM shirts will be right the first time.
