 The Classic Blue Summer Oxford is of lighter weight and lighter color (the blues are lighter, the whites are brighter), the weave is finer. The Classic Blue Oxford is woven coarser, the color is a bit steely blue, 2nd pic is quite accurate. Please keep in mind that there are two Classic Blue Summer Oxfords, GTZ48271 and GTZ46928. The later is even brighter, very close to the Sky Blue Oxford.
Very airy stuff, imagine it as some sort of woven super-pique. http://luxire.com/products/navy-cellulare
Great news! Point 1 would be phenomenal, point two very nice, the rest relatively unimportant for me, but German language customers service would give you access to people who have no clue what a yoke or gorge is. Point 1+2 should also work for non-German EU citizens, since packages with clothes from eg. Italy or France are not that interesting for the customs. Shipping fees should be also significantly lower, same with payments (but most are probably using Paypal or CC...
Looks great! I think we would get more consistent results when specifying a certain amount of shirring. Since the shirring is made by fitting a slightly bigger sleavehead in a smaller armhole, one could specify: "make sleavehead 0.5" larger than armhole for subtle shirring". But it is possible that small amounts of shirring are harder to make than larger shirrings when using a sewing machine instead of hand-attaching sleaves.
Great shirt, well executed. It would be nice if you could take some close-ups of the button holes and the shoulder seams when doing your fit-pics.
 Did you choose the hand-finish option for the denim shirt? Looks like you were inspired by this Finamore.
Kamakuras buttons are a bit nicer than the standard-buttons from Luxire. On the other hand, Luxire sets in the sleeves after the side seams of the body have been stitched (both seams are slightly rotated) while Kamakura stitches the side- and sleeve-seams in a single operation. Luxires method is said to be more comfortable (pulling the shirt when raising the arms, no hard spot of fabric in the armpit). Otherwise they are pretty much comparable. I think the Kamakura linen...
Isn't almost everyone doing something like this? I think Audi is putting sound machines (loudspeakers) under the exhaust, making a Diesel sound like a V8 Otto. Those stuff is something like thishttp://youtu.be/qqpcBpSsj1Ajust for the old kids.
I didn't ask, since the shirts will be too late for this summer. Plenty of more important stuff to get first ;)
I was asking this several times, but never got an answer. http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/3720#post_6471826 http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/10260#post_7128945 If you're interested in CMT, you can look around for Monti Monticel or SIC Tess Cellulare / Cellostar. Most convenient is ordering Acorns Leno online. I did so, but have to find a maker. The Acorn stuff is lighter...
