About to pull the trigger on the orange gingham fabric. Been searching for a shirt like that for a while now.
post #107 of 12448
OK, so here is some feedback and a couple of pics. Apologies for the poor photography, I was a bit pressed for time and the iphone doesnt do macro so well.

So first things first, the measurements all seem correct. The cuffs of the shirts felt a bit tight, but i double checked the measurement and its correct. I used a chan shirt as the basis for my measurements. +1 for getting this right.

I had a few requests in the comments. One was a monogram of 4 letters placed inside the shirt where the label would go and this was executed correctly. (the form only allows 3 letters and not this location)
i requested the length of the collar points for the button down (3.5in) and asked that it produce a bit of a roll and this was done correctly.
i requested darts and these were done correctly.
i asked that the left cuff be 0.5inch wider to accomodate a watch and this was done correctly.

as for the finishing, it all looks pretty good. there are still some loose threads and what not, but no worse than my chan or ascot chang shirts.
the buttons are a nice sized mother of pearl, but not of the same size/thickness/lustre of some of my better shirts, particularly the chan shirts i have. i wanted to photo the difference but i need to use a macro lens. ill try and sort this out later. the buttons are still superior to gordon yao who only uses the really thin MOP buttons. the smaller buttons for the button down collar arent so flash, but still MOP. im probably nitpicking on these.
the main buttons were indeed shanked, although the buttons on the cuffs of one shirt werent (but the other were).

as you can see, ive only chosen to order casual shirts this time around, so the fabrics reflect that. The check shirt is a medium weight flannel and quite nice and soft. accurate to the pics on the site. the other is a blue chambray, a little course but no doubt with soften in time. overall happy with these.

interesting write-up.
I never liked the monogram where the label goes.
taking a photo in a plastic bag does not make for a good photo.

the plaid shirt is way too tight. and the large plaid
make it look even worse.
not sure how you will even sit down, unless you have pushed the extra fabric to the back.

other details are distracting.
the cuff on the plaid shirt looks out of balance with the single button.
also the bias yoke on the plaid will be very visually distracting. from the back.
yes, you are a bit overboard on requesting a large button on the button down collar

I vote for instaban on members who cite slow shipping by carriers in affiliate threads.

  •     Is it 100% period accurate? I don't know (and don't really care).
  •     Does is fit well? Yes. The fit is amazing.
  •     Is it comfortable? Incredibly comfortable.
  •     Is it my new favourite shirt? Yes.
  •     Was it easy to order? Yes
  •     Did they make the shirt exactly as I asked? Yes - I simply said 'here are my measurements - make me a blue shirt just like the yellow spearpoint one posted on the FL.
  •     Will I be ordering from Luxire again? Certainly
  •     Would I recommend Luxire to others? Yes, definitely.



So there you are. That's my happy feedback on Luxire shirts.

We are at work on coming back on track. Lost half a week due to local holidays, derailing the previous effort.

We made some good progress today.
