    Fabulous fitting Men's tee!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/15/2017
    This is a great pattern and really well fitting. I researched a lot of patterns for my husband and the only change I will make to this in future is to add length for his long torso. It's a lovely neckline, not too wide and not too high and the sleeve is great too. I have no doubt this will be repeated many times.

    Great Mens T-Shirt Pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/05/2017
    Really enjoyed this pattern. Very easy to fit, neckband caused no issues, instructions were clear, and it was very quick to make up. Only adjustment I made was to lengthen the short sleeves about 5cm, but that was just personal preference. Would highly recommend this pattern!

    As a beginner, this worked like a dream. Putting it together was very simple, but it fit great, neckband was super easy to attach, and the instructions are great, as usual with Liesl and Co patterns. Very happy with this!

    Awesome Simple t-shirt

    This pattern is great. A simple t-shirt in which all the drafting works perfectly. I've made my husband 6 now in the last month and they come together so quickly! You can see some of them on my blog too: https://naomisews.wordpress.com/2017/07/02/mens-metro-t-shirt/

    Easy men's tee
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 04/20/2017
    This pattern was easy to make and fit true to measurements. My husband is broad across the shoulders and neck but skinny waisted so I easily graded a medium chest to small waist. In RTW shirts are either too tight or too loose so finding an easy to follow pattern that got the perfect fit was great. I've made 5 so far with many more planned.

    This pattern goes together like a dream. The sleeves fit the armscye perfectly. The fit is fantastic. I made it in XS, S, and XL and all of the recipients were extremely happy with the fit.

    I made it for my husband who is really selective (ahumm) when it comes to wearing T-shirts. He immediately liked it, so I am planning to make some more. Description was easy to follow. I used a serger and finished the neck line with a twin needle.

    Excellent shape.. Made the XL for husband and is true to size. Great shape like a GAP T-shirt. Scaled down one size and used to make cropped t for teanaged daughter to copy an Urban Outfitters T-shirt. She was delighted.

    This is a great pattern! Great for a beginner, really easy to work with! I have made two Metro tees already and they get rave reviews when worn; people always ask where we bought them! And as someone who sews, you know it's a big compliment :) So thank you, Metro tee!

    I've now made several of these in the XL size and they fit my partner great.

    If you're a true mans size and not really skinny then I'd highly recommend this pattern and its so quick to make. I manage to sew them in a couple of hours so its a great sewing fix.

    The shirt was very fast and easy to put together (just serged seams) it fits great and I have gotten a few compliments on it.

    So far I have made 4... definitely a keeper!

    Maybe it's my fabric
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/14/2015
    I made the shirt in XS for my son and cut out the M for my husband. I think my fabric was super stretchy because I could fit in the XS and I'm an XL lady! The problem is my husband HATES when tees get the neck stretched out. So for his I bought every stabilizer ever. Now the neck is too tight. It's almost perfect but you feel like you're being born every time you put it on. The fabric was a ribbed knit. I'll try a different knit next and see if that helps.

    Men's metro 'T'
    Reviewed by on 05/07/2015
    I got this pattern for my 17 year old son. I made the long sleeve version in merino knit as a base layer top for him to go hiking in. By all accounts I don't think it was off him the whole week-end. From my point of view it is a great staple pattern, quick and easily sewn up. I will be using it a lot.

    Great pattern! True to size and wonderful instruction as usual. Only the neck band was too wide but this may have been due my fabric choice...but this was easily fixed! Finally my husband got some home sewn clothes- thanks Liesl!

    A Brilliant 'Basic'
    Reviewed by on 07/06/2014
    Liesl, you have done it again. A good, solid, mens tee. Well cut, roomy but definitely not sloppy. Nice and long with a neat round neck that is not too high or low. Size down if you are after a slim fit but make sure your fabric has enough stretch for that. I have said it before, No-one does a PDF like Oliver+S. Instead of huge sheets of paper, you simply put the pattern pieces together (I use a glue stick, it means I can fold my dried sheets and then press then out when I want to draft another size). Good instructions with some great knit tips. I blogged the version I made for my son, if you fancy a peek. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/comfy-clobber.html He was after a tighter fit for wearing under shirts. I think we will making many many more of these!
