Irene, it looks like DH has sloping shoulders just like me. At least that's what I "read" from the bunching under the arm. If you take off 1/2 inch off the shoulder at the sleeve tapering to nothing at the neckline on the front and back, you would also be able to fit that sleeve in better. DH looks amazing. You both have been doing so great on the weight loss.

It's a great-looking tee--on a dishy guy! I mean, your previous photos of dh showed a cute husband, but now, you can really see his elegant bone structure. The comparison of the RTW and KS sleeves is very interesting, because Lands End used to brag that the sleeves of their women's Super Tees were "balanced," in that the back armscye was longer than the front. I don't believe they made the same claim for men's tees, but it certainly looks as though they used a Burda-like pattern for all their Super Tee line, at least during the time when your "template" was manufactured.

Awwww.... he's cute! And He has lost a lot of weight-- Good for him! The shirt looks very nice, it fits well and looks to be very versatile. I see what you mean about looser wrists... Hmmmm. I've noticed that with Kwik-sew. Things are baggy.

Your DH is looking downright skinny! Not only does the tee look like a good fit; the color is great on him.

It must have taken courage to post a picture of your hunky husband for all the PR women to see. Watch out! :-) Great looking T. The correlation between the Lands' End and KS Ts is a real surprise. Thanks for the review.

What a great wife you are to remake all his t-shirts! He's very fortunate, and I'm sure he loves all the pampering. It's true that he is a looker, Irene, but I have a feeling he knows he's sitting in the gravy! Great job on the T-shirt. Thanks for the review!

Very nice Irene - will try this pattern for my husband and take note of your comments re the sleeves. You have both done so well in the weight loss department I am green with envy!!

Irene, I have to tell you that I don't usually read the menswear reviews. I checked out this review simply because from the thumbnail photo I figured you must have found a new hunky boyfriend to sew for! ;-) Your DH looks fab (and so does his shirt, of course).

Who's that man in the photo? Congrats to both of you on your weight loss. The green shirt fits particularly nicely. Thanks for the information on your alterations & drafting issues.

Echoing Anne-congrats to both of you! I can see your weight loss in your face alone. Good thing you have a quick TNT pattern now for the new wardrobe he will want!
