Custom Shirt #1: Brown Wide Stripe Linen Short Sleeve Camp Collar Shirt

So, they only sent me one shirt to try out before sending my other shirt into production. I think I nailed the fit here with the custom program (between 14.5 Slim & 14.5 Extra Slim with extra shoulder width). what’re your thoughts?

Didn’t even know you could do a short sleeve. Looks great. Did you just measure an existing shirt?
I’d love some short sleeve popovers

I measured my polo shirts sleeve as they hit me mid bicep, which was about 8”. As far as sleeve width, my biceps are 11”, so made sleeve width flat 6”. Put in notes to make the sleeve 8” from shoulder, with 6” sleeve width flat. Exactly how it came.

You look fairly slim (as you size indicates). All personal preference but could that perhaps be too much "suppression" in the body? Fingers crossed this doesn't shrink...

From my last S&M linen shirt, it shrank absolutely null. This is between a Slim & Extra Slim exactly, and extra slim fits me great, but too tight in shoulders/chest. Slim is great everywhere, but sleeves a touch wide and shoulders still a tad tight. Adding the width in the shoulders fixed mostly everything.
For reference, about 35.5” chest and 29” waist give or take.

I'm so thankful that the suit liquidation isn't nearly as tempting as the sport coat liquidation... lots of good deals for sure, but nothing eye-catching like those Angelico or Cerruti sport coats.
