First try on tailorstore MTM shirt. This shirt has been washed 3 times, and the only issue is the bunching in the armpit. any suggestions on how to adjust my measurements to get that out? sorry for the crappy phone pic.

need more pics man... full body pic, tucked and untucked. side and back too. plus self-pics (ie bad angle) messes with the visual proportions that have nothing to do with the actual fit.

Sleeves look too tight, otherwise it seems ok

What do you feel when you wear the shirt?

chest too tight and sleeves too narrow, unless you want to show off those "guns"

here we go, another shot at pictures. I had to use photobooth with the 2 second delay.
I'm pretty sure everything it too tight, but since I'm doing this myself, i would love some input as to which measurements exactly, i should be changing.
thanks in advance.

Looks like a pretty good fit to my (untrained) eye. Collar looks right, sleeves look right. The waist is tapered well to accentuate your athletic build. It's definitely slim, but that's the predominant style I see these days. Can you move freely and easily in it?

honestly, it's probably the best fitting shirt i've ever owned, it feels great and i can move freely, i'm just trying to get rid of the bunching in the arm pits and i don't know what measurement i'd need to change to fix that.

I'm no pro, but the bunching could be caused by the arm holes being too high. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think this is correct; it's also too tight in the chest though. More room there would also help.

I had this problem with a MTM shirt. Arm holes were too narrow, causing creases near pits and in the back at my lats. You would likely have tugging at the placket if the chest was the problem.

I had the same problem with the shirt i picked up today, arm holes being too high. Easily fixed up for the next time. Maybe it has something to do with athletic body types?
