    The first (and only so far) shirt I got from Ratio is similar. Does it feel a little tight across your chest? Mind does--almost like it's pulling to the seam area under my arm pits. I'm thinking of going an inch bigger there (chest) and staying the same everywhere else. Curious to hear your thoughts...how does it feel?

    @yanagi It looks pretty good for right out of the box! The torso fit looks spot on, but the sleeves look a touch short. How tall are you? The reason I ask is the button stance looks a touch high, which is good if you're shorter/short legs, but not so great if you're tall. Maybe try a longer size? The ripples across your shoulder blades are probably due to posture, that's an easy fix for a tailor.

    @zcm I'm gonna guess it's due to higher/smaller armholes. As far as how to solve it, I've got nothing.

    It feels like a very good quality shirt. But the fit so far is just not working for me. I have it remade once already. I just sent CS another email. I'm still hopeful they will get it figured out.

    Yeah my thoughts as well. I just sent ratio the same picture. Hopefully they can help me out.

    Thanks! I'm 5'9", so I think the button stance works out.

    In that case, you should be good. I'm 5'8" with short legs (28" inseam) so it's great for me as well. I like my sleeves slightly longer, but those look perfectly acceptable if you're comfortable with them. All in all, I think you did good, congrats!

    I just picked up this J Crew microstripe blazer for $30 from eBay:






    Its quite wrinkly; I'm taking it to the cleaners today. It passes the hug/handshake test, the length seems about right (passes the finger curl test), but I am a little concerned with the poof in the chest. I've got a wide chest and I'm not sure if it can be fixed. Also to note, I do not have a good tailor. I have a dry cleaners that has only ever hemmed my pants. I have no idea her skill with jackets...

    There are several members here who don't know how to do it. It's frustrating. It's 2014 people. Learn the basics.
