    I've had five shirts made by ModernTailor. I picked average back/average shoulders for a couple of the shirts and bent back/straight shoulders for the others. Can somebody knowledgable explain how exactly this information impacts the cut of the shirt, because to be honest, after experimenting with this in five shirts I have the impression that it makes f**k-all difference - here's one example of each: average back+average shoulders [​IMG] bent back/straight shoulders [​IMG]

    Are there darts in either shirt?

    Nice fitting shirts.
    Just move the cuff button in for a tighter fit there.

    No darts. I used to get all my shirts with darts but have grown tired of the look of late.
    I assume when you give them finished-shirt measurements darts or no darts has no influence on the fit anyway.

    The cuff buttons in the picture of the 2nd shirt are not all buttoned, I noticed now.
