1. As others have said, you just have to expect that your first shirt won't be exactly right.

2. The amount of slope in your shoulders is really unusual. It seems to approach 45 degrees, which is not something a shirt maker is going to automatically account for. This explains those folds in the front shoulder area.

3. You need to look at these photos of the first not-great shirt not as a failure on anyone's part, but as a necessary step in the process. This is how it works -- you take your best shot as a starting point, gauge the results, make adjustments, and go again.

Thanks for your advice but as I said before, the main problem is the wrinkles from the neck to under the arm and this is not a washed issue.

The creases you mention are clearly a shoulder slope mismatch, which I think has been addressed by earlier comments. Clearly, a remake is necessary to fix that. I suggested washing the shirt because (should you pursue this with Luxire) you should try to get a handle on all of the issues you have with the shirt, including the shirring.

Thanks for your email, I liked the way you talked to me and not like others are doing.

I understand that I have a very complicated and unasual shoulder but I sent four pictures showing the problem and even though is in their policy I can not understand why I have to pay the shipment cost if the shirt was made incorrectly, but this was my fault because I didn't read the policy return but it is someting that the people in this post should know.

Here's another way to look at it. You, arguably more than many of us here, stand to benefit considerably from getting a shirt pattern nailed down with Luxire. You have a very complicated shoulder fit. Even if it takes another iteration or two to get it down, which is normal as others have said, in the long term what you're about to spend on the shipping cost is completely trivial.

I am not trying to convince you nor anybody just show the pictures and everyone can draw a conclusion.

The main problem with the shirring, that is not the main problem of the shirt, is that there is a lot of fabric that create a massive volume in the area more typical than women dressed:

I told you to show a picture from the same angle, I cannot draw a conclusion if you present a different point of view each time.

I do not care if you can not draw a conclusion, I have showed many pictures so if they are not enough for you I do not care either.

I haven't changed my point of view since the begginig, the biggest issue is the sloping shoulders and after that at practically the same level the shirring and collar issues.

But as I told you before I don't have any interest in convince you about nothing.

So much obtuseness in this thread. Obviously the sleeves are incredibly heavily shirred, even more so than my first attempt. Yes, it looks terrible, but you should just contact Luxire and ask if they can recut and reattach the sleeves, so that they have less shirring. They're very capable, so I'm sure they can do that.

I'd say there is a public interest to tell others what they can expect from a single picture.
The discussion is obviously over but it's not about you, it's more about telling others that you can get very satisfying results from Luxire if you are capable of making it very, very clear what you expect.

I sent to Luxire measurements from my body took by my tailor, measurements from a shirt that I owned, 3 pictures for the collar, one picture for the cuffs, one picture for the shirring sleeve in your opinion terrible I don' think the same, four pictures of myself showing the same problem of my shoulders.

I think that this is a very completed and CLEAR information so don' t say what you don't know.

This is my last post in this regard.

Is there an ignore feature on this forum? It would come in handy for posters like JLopez.

Has anyone had experience with Luxire changing the distance between collar buttons on an OCBD? It might all be in my head, but Luxire's default collar button distance seems to give the collar a not-so-great roll while the collar is closed. Could this be due to 3 inch points? I plan on 3.5 inch points on my next order and wondering if anyone thinks that will fix it, or if anyone has specified moving the collar buttons ever-so-slightly closer together. It seems the distance affects how taught/spread the points are versus how much of a roll they have. Thoughts?

What's the odds he didn't measure the way luxire instructs people to measure?

Also, how can luxire tell how much slope you have from pictures? That's not something that can be caught in typical 'measurements', that takes a few iterations.
