Hi guys, Received my first Luxire shirt a few days ago and the fit is prett good! Would you mind guys mind recommending me some dress shirt fabrics for my next order? My first shirt was an oxford, but I'm looking for something a little finer. Thanks!
No. The jacket sleeves are definitely a bit long. I'll take them in to get shortened. Are there any other alterations that you would recommend to get the jacket to fit better?
Thanks. I'll keep on reading. I've already seen a few guides, but the methods described are all a bit different. I suppose there's no silver bullet to achieving the perfect shine!One of the guides that I read recommended stripping off the previous wax polish before conditioning and polishing your shoes. If I just polished my shoes a few days ago, is this something that I need to do before I go at it again? Or would you guys recommend only removing the previous polish if a...
Hey guys, This might be a stupid question, but how do you get the crease in trousers like the following photo has (stolen from SF user Crats)?
Hello gents, I recently purchased my first full-canvased suit from Paul Stuart and was hoping to get some critique here for further alterations. My problem with suits has always been my unusual body shape; I'm not very tall, but I have very broad shoulders for my height. I decided to purchase this suit from Paul Stuart because they offer suits in a size 39. Their Phineas Cole line was too tight on me, so I had to go with their mainline Paul Stuart, which is considerably...
If you guys think that the hips are fine, then I'm OK with it! You certainly have more expertise in the arena than I do. I'll definitely ask the tailor to clean up the roll.It looks like I'm receiving some comments regarding the pants. I think that the "bow" might be an effect of the way that they're sitting in the photo. I'll try to retake them to see if I can get them to look normal. I'm not sure that I have very bowed legs, although it's possible.Thanks!Edit: Regarding...
heldentenor, Thanks for the suggestion regarding the Tailors' Thread. I scanned the first page for such a thread but neglected to check the second page as well. I will go ahead and post my question in the Tailors' Thread as well. As far as the trousers tapering goes, I am not sure if they tapered it evenly from both seams or not. They might just be looking strange in the photos. Is there any easy way to check? I also agree that there is some strange bunching in the...

A little bit late, but the shine on these look fantastic. Is there any guide out there that you guys would recommend to get a similar shine on my JLs?
Sounds great. Thanks a lot, JezeC! I'll give measuring my own shirt a shot since I only have a few well-fitting shirts and would like to hold onto them. Edit: Just placed an order for my first item from Luxire! Very excited to see how my first piece fits. I ended up going with a pink oxford fabric.
