After all of the positive reviews for Luxire on this forum I decided to give them a try, and I'm glad I did. I ordered the Pale Blue Poplin 2/100, measured from a combination of measurements from my best fitting RTW shirts. The shirt arrived at my door here in the U.S. less than 10 days from ordering, which is incredibly fast for the quality of the product. The fabric and finishings were all as good or better than I was expecting, especially given the sub $70 price point and free shipping. Luxire's fit was spot on to the measurements I gave, which I certainly did not find with the other online MTM company. Overall I'm very happy with the quality and plan on making Luxire my new go to retailer for dress shirts.

On that note, below are some photos of me in my new Luxire shirt. I generally like the fit, but would like to ask for some fit feedback on possible measurement changes for my second order.

Thanks!





Slightly narrow the shoulders, slightly reduce the waist measurement perhaps, but overall that looks very good.

Agree with the above, but you need to put up some clearer, non-phone photos from more angles for proper opinions.

Thanks for the feedback, I agree with both suggestions. I'll probably take in the shoulders by 1/2", maybe 1" in the waist. Theresa at Luxire suggested that they could slope the back panel on each side to eliminate the extra fabric near the armhole at the back, which I would have never thought of but makes complete sense. I'm really happy with the final product, and Luxire's customer service is really exceptional. I'll definitely be ordering another batch of shirts once I get my swatches in.

Sorry, I'll take some better photos next time. Was heading out the door to work and figured the iPhone photos would be okay to give a general idea of the fit.

What do you think of the fit on my first Luxire shirt? Very satisfied with the first fit, but could be improved a little I think.

Should I do all these small changes you think?
1 A little shorter sleeves
2 Slim down the body (chest, mid waist and waist measurement) a little
3 Make shirt longer
4 A little bigger armhole width

Nice fit! What type of collar did you order?

I think the sleeves might be okay, because you want there to be room for when you bend your elbow, so that the sleeve doesn't run up your wrist. What I suggest is maybe making the cuffs smaller, so they lie a bit further up your arm, and still give you leeway for bending your elbow.

Shoulders seem to be hanging off the sides by half an inch or so.

You mentioned armholes already.

Luxire,

 

I was under the impression that none of your materials were transparent.  The shirt below (Pale Blue Poplin 2/100) appears to be somewhat see-through since the sleeves of the undershirt are visible.  I'm thinking of ordering an MTM shirt which I will wear over a t-shirt.  I would like the t-shirt to remain hidden. Any specific materials which I should avoid, or is it better just to ask about specific ones prior to ordering?

Remove the center pleat.
You should also reduce the waist of the shirt at the back.
Mr. Kabbaz published an interesting articel partly on this topic.
Have a look at it over here - 'darts':

The shoulder seams seem not to sit on the edge of your collar bone, if this is true, you should reduce the shoulder width.

I think your collar points need to be longer for that angle of cutaway. They're floating off the shirt.

That's informative. Do you have links to the other parts? They seem to be broken.

I didn't have the collar stays in, with them I think it's fine. Btw, what's up with the button?

I like the see thru women's pureness body suit! On a separate note I received two shirts today in the white and blue bengal stripe (stripes are about 4mm) and the light blue micro herringbone and both fabrics seem very nice.

It is better with the stays. If you were going to go stay-less then I'd lengthen by .25". I think Luxire's unfused cutaway collars look great without stays, myself, but everyone has their own preference of couse. I posted a picture of my collar some time ago in this thread.

Not sure about the button, is the collar too big? Probably best to ask the experts at Luxire itself.
