I'm thinking of getting a few shirts from MT and am thinking of using this shirt I had custom-made a few years ago:

The neck is a bit tight so I'll probably have them go up 1/4". Other than that, any obvious problems??

It looks tight all over, and the shoulder slope is screwed up. I'm not sure if MT can deal with that or not.

Oooh....that bad, huh? I have to admit I did gain "some" weight over the past few years.

FWIW, here's what it looks like tucked in. Can I use this as a basis for the MT shirts or do I go through my closet and find something better?

I think the sleeves are a bit baggy and the shoulders a bit wide. Maybe reduce each by 0.5 inches.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
