32 posts in this topic

Didnt know where to put this -

 

For the longest time my work shirts have been shegging me

 

either tooo baggy , too tight too short on the sleeves not long enough at the bottom 

 

- WHAT GWAN???

 

has anyone got shirt tailored -if so where can i do this on the cheap 

 

got  a tailor round my way that is quoting me 9.95 to tailor a shirt - is that a good price

 

 

i think its a problem with stocky,muscular guys as a few of my other friends are hench are having the same problem

it's either Your £9.95 tailor which isn't too bad compared to the standard cost of a shirt, no?

 

or trial and error with all shops for different sizes.

 

I'd go for the first, unless You see Yourself constantly needing to buy new shirts

9.95 is good

Mine charges 20 for sleeve and back alterations and that's at mates rates

Being 6'5 and working out is a bitch when it comes to buying shirts

*edit

Slaters do free alterations btw if you have one nearby

Got a few shirts from Brook Taverner a couple weeks back. They were a nice fit and good length.

I find buying slim fit a size too big helps. I find it hard to get shirts that are the right length and still allow me to raise both arms without getting too tight on my back

Reiss shirts are my personal preference when I need a shirt and don't have time for alterations

Fits are usually pretty solid

Have you tried dropping down a size

 

Or just go to that tailer a tenner is a small price to pay to look slick
