    Most e-tailors will be pretty happy to take additional measurements like that if you either add it in the 'additional notes' page or send them an email.

    Most suits look pretty bad with that kinda crappy flash photography. I would love some classic Jil suiting, and that is the cut I will be shooting for with my MTM / bespoke.
    Yeah I like Jil suits too which is why I'm goading him into posting a fit pic, wanna see how that stuff looks pretty badly. Getting a red/white stripe button down shirt made up, should be done just in time for July 4th.
    I have photography skills of a 3rd grader. The suit is bad ass. It is not 100% wool which I had reservations at first but the material is extremely nice. It looks a bit off since the sleeves need to be tailored down about 2.5" inches. Also, my suit hangers don't lay very nice when i hang stuff like that to show off the internetz my kopping power. It looks billowed out some. Once I get it tailored I'll throw up a pic.

    Really?? People are always posting these MyTailor fit pics over on the MC forum, but the majority of them look really off. Even the ones that were measured "in person" by MyTailor staff don't seem to fit that great and look overly generic. I suspect you're likely better off purchasing a less generic looking designer shirt that fits reasonably well and then having it tailored locally.

    I think they like the idea of saying "i have a custom shirt" despite most the time them not looking very good

    That's the fit they want. Same with Jantzen or any tailor you need to work on the fit.

    The problem for me is the shoulders plus neck on me is wack for everything else, so I have to size up to fot neck and shoulders but it doesn't fit arms or anything else.

    I've worked with two other tailors to get slim cut SW&D shirting so I don't mind doing it again. Thomas Mason is really nice.

    MC is not representative of tailoring - only representative of thier chosen style. PG shirts are cut slim - even his Jantzen.

    True enough. Still, I find it depressing how the the only good fits you see of these shirts appeared to require a LOT of effort on the part of the purchaser-- sending the shirts back multiple times, purposely quoting smaller dimensions than what is actually desired, etc. I suppose if you require a large collection of plain looking button downs for work, the custom route might be an ok option. I've never been in this situation myself, so I don't have much experience here-- I only wore a button down twice in the last year.

    Yeah, I've noticed it's often noobs on MC who are posting their MyTailor and Jantzen fits as if they have just entered into some kind of elite "bespoke" club. Sometimes I think I only visit MC just to see this and laugh.

    My "custom" shirts are fine, though not perfect. I prefer BoO for casual button-downs but all my dressier fits use mtm shirts. Then again I am a true 44 so nothing looks good OTR yet. If jantzen had a system where you could give them measurements you want the shirt to be, instead of your body measurements, it'd be a really, really good value.
