RED CEDAR FLANNEL SHIRT

RED CEDAR FLANNEL SHIRT

Product Review (submitted on February 20, 2014):
One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing unmatched prints, stripes and plaids on a shirt.It seems so lazy! Especially on higher end garments.Not even the slightest effort to match the plaids on the opposite side from armpit to waist. The opposite seam (from armpit down) is accurately sewn and I believe that it must have been the starting point. The locker loop is also not matched up properly with the fabric design and looks out of place.

I can see why people cut costs by not matching plaids.It costs extra to match your seams. It uses more fabric, requires special markers, and increases the time spent on sewing the shirt.

While the fabric is beautiful, I feel that this shirt is only half as good as what it could have been. I'll just disguise the problem under a vest. One piece of unsolicited advice is that I'd allow for half an inch to three quarters of an inch extra in the sleeve width to reduce wear on the elbow bends past 90 degrees. I've worn out elbows like this before.Too snug when moving hand to shoulder. Just my personal preference.
