Thank you kindly. They did a nice job with all of my nitpicky details.
Now that I have my pattern set for long-sleeved polo shirts, and Luxire has made me some luxurious ones in heavier weights, I had some lighter weight polos made up for summer. These two are the Navy Sports Mesh and a 6oz White Pique. Both nice casual summer fabrics.

Some recent arrivals: green cotton/linen chambray, Albini linen grey gingham, white cotton pique long-sleeved polo, grey wool rich dress cargos. All turned out beautifully, of course.

Luxire now make all of my long-sleeved polos. This is the only way I can...
