    if you plan to wear untucked, add at least 1" to the hip if not 1.5" you might want to add 1" to tail length on shirts tucked in.
    also lose the split bias yoke on the plaids it does not look good on sport shirts, and with your shoulders sloping in back it looks worse

    Asking since you're obviously more knowledgeable than most: since the front of the sleeves look smooth, but the backs are wrinkled, is that an issue with sleeve pitch or the shape of the sleeves?

    really not very noticeable.
    fixing the slope on the next order should fix that.
    i would not try to alter this garment. it is fine as is.

    in person, he does the rounds to a number of north american cities throughout the year. ive been getting all my stuff done with him when he's in town for the last couple years and have always been very pleased with the process and the results

    Nice, that would have been exceptionally impressive if online, but it's very nice. I'd certainly be happy with it as-is.

    Thanks, Carl, appreciate the feedback. If I can trouble you for one more second, this is a shirt that I had made at Ratio a few years (and admittedly, a few pounds) ago. I wanted to try a very slim fit, and it is certainly that. I went with high armholes, slimmed sleeves, etc. I can see that it is pulling across the collarbone area, which I assume is from the yoke being too slim (16.5" vs my PC which is 17.25"), and it is very narrow in the hips as well. Any thoughts on what other dimensions I should relax for my next dressier shirt? IMG_3598.jpg IMG_3600.jpg IMG_3601.jpg
