Their customer service is pretty damn good, you can take your suit to a tailor, have them take measurements where it's wrong, send the suit back, and they'll fix it. IF you get your measurements correct -- incredibly cheap suits that fit well. They also asked him why he hadn't ordered another suit, he said that there were too many issues with the first to make a 2nd worth it -- so they gave him a free suit to try to win him back. Not sure if he's traded it in yet.
awesome, thanks again, daseal.

Re: Tailored Dress Shirts

Panda,

Expect to tweak every time. Once you get it close, they're fine. But they can ALWAYS BE BETTER! Glad you like them. I encourage everyone on TWP to consider the tailored shirt. Great fit, no shopping, and similar prices to off the rack.

it was almost perfect, the changes are minimal;

about 1/4" added to each shoulder
about 1/4" added to each sleeve length
about 3/4" - 7/8" taken off the half hip

Re: Tailored Dress Shirts

I really need to check this out because I always have a problem with buying dress shirts. I need longer sleeves, in the 36/37 range, my neck is around 18, but my waist is only a 36. So I always end up with baggy ass shirts that just don't look right even when they are "fitted" style.

Remember guys - you gotta wear the shirt - dont let the shirt wear you.
Peace

Ive started getting all shirts altered at a tailor. Definitely worth it for work.

that was my problem, try the $20 (+ about $10 s/h) trial shirt from modern tailor.

Do shirts have thread counts like sheets?

i haven't seen it.

but i would like to comment on the shirt i got from modern tailor. i wore it to work for the first time today, it is the most wrinkle-prone shirt i've worn in a long time.

i had to lay down over the steaming vents on the roof every 2-3 hours to compensate

Lol. That must have been tiring. In all seriousness - my friend has a company called loggerhead apparel. They make short sleeve cotton polo type shirts. 100 % pima cotton and proceeds go to the conservation of - you guessed it - the loggerhead turtle. It was thee most comfortable well fitting shirt ive worn ina long time.
Should i start another thread about this or do you think its ok to branch out with different shirts in this thread?

Re: Tailored Dress Shirts

Panda -- the $20 dollar shirt is prone to wrinkling. Get into the better fabrics and they are much, much better especially in that department.
