1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I received my shirts 8 weeks + 1 day after i placed the order. Mytailor usually answers promptly, although its been 2 days since i sent an email and am awaiting a response.

    I ordered a few shirts on Nov. 7. When they hadn't arrived two weeks ago, I emailed the company. Customer service responded the next day, informing me that production was a bit backlogged from a surge in orders, and that my shipment would arrive within the week.

    It did. I opted for light blue and white on my first go-round in the 2-ply cotton. The shirts fit pretty damn well and are less expensive than what I was paying for BB shirts after substantial tailoring (giant waisted beasts that they are). I'm plenty satisfied, and fortunately, if I have any problems, Costa Mesa is only an hour away.

    I'm confident your shirts will arrive in due time. I'm also fairly confident they'll respond to your email in short order--based on my awesome sample size of 1, anyway.

    My $30 shirts from ModernTailor are better than my $100 shirts from MyTailor.

    I've never ordered from Mytailor (too many negative reviews on SF) but I get my Moderntailor shirts in about 2 weeks from the order date and have been happy so far.

    Mine come with mother-of-pearl buttons that are first-rate. I had to ask for them though.

    Why? What about the fit and style and workmanship was different?

    Yes, you do have to ask for them over the phone...at least that is how I did it!

    For my first order, I asked the guy in person when he came through town. For subsequent orders, I just wrote it in the comment section on their web form.

    Joe came into town and I dropped in on a whim. I ordered two shirts from him. They took about 6 weeks to come, which I was expecting and ok with. I'm very happy with the shirts. I specifically asked for lighter material in the collars and Joe said that he would use Irish linen. I also asked for different buttons and I got very thick MOP buttons. The collar was free and the buttons were an $10 or so charge. People usually say they only like the Thomas Mason fabrics but I chose the superfine 2 ply and have been plenty happy with it for an everyday shirt.

    Why do you say that. I have lukewarm feelings about mytailor shirts, but i can be measured in person. Does moderntailor do that, if so i might try them out? Faster turn around. My friend tried out moderntailor and i saw the shirt, nothing impressive. Maybe poor fabric choice.

    It was the fabric on my MyT shirt that I don't like, which I chose after the tailor upsold me from a slightly less expensive fabric. Also, he measured the neck wrong and it's a bit tight. If they were both the same price, I would say they're basically the same product, but they're not the same price.

    Once you get measured by the tailor, or if you have any shirts that fit you perfectly, you can just use that as measurement and use that to buy from moderntailor and save yourself a lot of money.

    From my experience, Moderntaior customer service, workmanship, delivery time and price are simply top notch. If you get your hand on one of the swatch book, before you order your shirt, you will get to feel the fabric before you buy the shirts.

    well, as 99% of your posts are about how amazing Modern Tailor are, you are either obsessed with them or you work for them. You and about 10 others keeping the same boring posts on the front-page of threads. Give it a rest

    Since I have at least more than 1 post that doesn't talk about moderntailor and I've posted less than 100 post here, I can assure you not 99% of my posts are about how amazing modern tailor are. I am also not paid by Modern Tailor for anything I do here. I do, however, love them and an fascinated with their business concept. I was hoping to exchange and to learn from other people about their experience dealing with modern tailor on this forum since this is also where I learn about them in the first place, and this seems the only place on internet where people even discuss about them. If I violate any style forum etiquette, I will tone down my opinion in future post.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but have others been in touch with MT recently? I placed an order 5 weeks ago and now the site is down. I'm sure this is just weird timing but.... :uhoh:

    The site loads for me. I've been waiting over 2 months for my shirt to ship.

    It's generally 2 to 3 months- you can check online to see estimated dispatch date; my last batch shipped two days before the estimated date (and should be here tomorrow) so I would say they are pretty accurate. Joe has been very accommodating on everything I have asked him for so I no longer regret leaving my previous shirtmaker, Ascot Chang.

    That gives me an idea for a blog post...
