This is my second Luxire shirt--I love pretty much everything about the shirt except for the ripples from the second button up to the shoulder. Theresa and I shot emails back and forth about trying to fix this (its less pronounced on the newer shirt I ordered) but its still there. The yoke seems plenty big and the chest is not too tight. Any ideas on what is causing this? I was going through the pics in this thread and noticed a bunch had this issue.

 

(The shirt was tucked in all day which is why its ultra wrinkled near the bottom.)

 

Thanks!

 

This might offer a bit of help:

The 2nd picture looks like your problem.

Could be that your shoulders pitch forward.

Looks great! Could I refer to a pattern from an order that hasn't been finished yet when ordering this?

Are these designed more for button downs or polos? I am all for diversity, but like my wovens for dress shirts and knits for polos. TIA

In the traditional sense, Polos.

Found this comment by CEGO about Grandi Rubenalli fabrics. Many do not see G&R in the same light as the famous brands just because they have not heard the name before.

Can anyone comment on the Grandi Rubenalli fabrics?

Has anyone had a shirt made in the Monti Gingham Twills?

Blue

Purple

 

Would you say it's too thick to wear in 85+F weather?

Been following this thread for a few weeks, and thinking about getting some garments made. I was reading up on their alterations policy and it sounds like if the shirt is not made correctly, you ship it back to them (at your own cost) and then they alter and ship it back to you (at their cost). If the shirt was correctly made to specifications but you don't think it looks good, you pay for shipping costs both ways and alterations cost. Is this all correct?

 

How much does it cost to ship a garment to India anyway? Sounds like it would be fairly expensive.

This is perfect, it looks like that is exactly the problem.

 

Thanks!

Great, thank you!

 

Is this fabric prone to sag during the day? I'm just asking since I have two popover-style shirts made from apparently robust pique, but the arms and shoulders are getting longer/bigger during the day until it looks like your shirt was bought for someone two sizes bigger.

 

My plan is getting the undersides of the collar, placket, yoke and cuffs made from some kind of sturdy oxford or woven linen to give the shirt some structure. Do you think this might work?

I have the purple one - I absolutely love the fabric - I sometimes wish all my shirts were in that fabric - it's easy to iron and has a very soft feel.

I guess it would depend on how humid the 85 degrees was - I wore it in Hawaii in March with a jacket and it was ok, but it was a nice breezy day and might not have been quite that warm.

I probably would wear it without a jacket at 85 with the sleeves rolled up. I don't think it's too thick for that.

Awesome. Thanks very much for the review
