Shirt Spotting

Hubby wore his new shirt to work today!  I managed to snap a couple of pix before he left.  Mind you, that was at 6:00 a.m. so they're not the greatest.  He was so cute though - he went straight to the Grey Wall and stood there!  Awww.  I've told him he needs to pay attention to the fit and comfort of the shirt throughout the day, so that I can know if I need to make any further adjustments.  I do know that for future versions, I'll be making the collar points slightly shorter - we both felt they ended up a little long.


As you can see, he's quite happy with the shirt.  :-)

Here it is from the back - I think you can really see here how broad his shoulders are:


And his right shoulder is lower than his left one too, just like me!  It's like we were made for each other!!

  6. Wow yes, his shoulders are quite wide in comparison to the rest of him, but you did such a great job with the fit! 6am departure for work... dude is a *trooper.* I totally think the hat makes the outfit. ;-)
