I think this is "normal" and "natural". In fused collars, we add an extra layer to the fronts of the collar band so that they stay flat.

 

The unfused collars have just the soft interlining inside, thus rolling. Some people like to attach 2 buttons to solve the "problem" and some attach the button higher.

 

I think that either is not required. Typically, with the collar button buttoned, we would be wearing a tie and the bend would not be seen.

 

Would love to be educated though.

The collar looks really nice.

Has anyone else had problems with buttons chipping?

Two of my three Luxire shirts have had cuff buttons chip (come to think of it, the other shirt has french cuffs). The buttons are still usable, but they don't look as good, and I fear they might be a bit sharp or rough in places.

I have two shirts which have been washed about 10 times each, and I have had no chipping. I advise you to button up the shirt and turn it inside out before washing to lower the chances of the buttons getting destroyed.

That's an issue with mother of pearl buttons in general.

Turn the shirt inside out as Christian B suggested.

Thanks for your replies, gentlemen - I didn't know that washing them buttoned and inside-out would make a difference. I figured that washing on cold and hang drying would be sufficient, but clearly I was mistaken.  Fortunately there's an extra button on each shirt, so I can just replace the chipped ones.

Never wash your shirts with the buttons done up.

You can wash them inside out however to reduce the chance of chipping by facing the button away from the drum of the washing machine.

How in the world will that help? The buttons will, with a high possibility, still hit the drum when the shirt isn't buttoned. I have had no problems with any of my shirts from Luxire so far, and an older shirt which is probably washed in the similar way over 80 times shows no sign of chipping of the mop-buttons or anything else regarding the buttons getting destroyed.

Luxire, have the larger buttons come in yet?  I am getting close to placing a second order and would like to have those in before I do.  BTW, the current buttons are holding up very well for me.  I am pleased with the quality.

Yes, they are here, wonderful 4mm thick buttons in sizes 18L and 14L. Made of the highest quality MOP.

 

We are charging $10 extra for these. The same can be paid here by adding $10 to cart along with the shirt order.

When you say 4mm thick, do you mean height? Like if I lay the botton on the table, it is 4mm high? That is a stupendously thick button.

Any recommendations for caring for the navy summer chino fabric? I'm finding it hard to iron without making the seams shiny. Maybe I just need to have them pressed?

Shining happens more with wool than cotton, that's interesting...

Regardless, don't move the iron around--press, rather than ironing. You can also place another piece of fabric--say, a tea towel--between the trousers and the iron.

That's odd that cotton is shining though, I've never seen that.

Excellent.  I am looking forward to seeing them.  If I wanted additional spares, how would I order that?

Yes, that is true.

In my experience it's been my cotton that's been getting shiny.

Either way, as recommended, you should be "pressing" your pants and not "ironing" it, per se. Just lay flat, put a lot of pressure, then raise. Move on.
