Rated 5 out of 5 by Virag from Versatile pattern! I found this pattern relatively easy to follow and it includes nice features to make this into a well-tailored shirt, including lots of top-stitching and a buttoned tab on the back. It's so nice to be able to make shirts myself with careful attention to detail, rather than rely on the hit-or-miss tailoring of some sweat shop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sassy Sandys Sewing from Disappointed I am a very experienced seamstress, however I have only sewed about 6-8 men's shirts. I made this one for a customer. I had to remake the collar as it was too long for the collar stand even when all the dots are lined up. If you want the collar to lay nicely when buttoned, then cut the collar 2 sizes smaller. (I had the same problem with another shirt.) The cuffs, when cut to the same size as the sleeves, were about 1" too short. I do like the sleeve placket for this shirt and adapted another pattern to use it.
