Welcome. You seem to have quite a sway back and barrel chest, so adding darts will be the only way to really shape that area. Could maybe add a bit in the chest but looks pretty clean to me apart from that small pulling under our arms.

Right.

 

I was thinking darts.

 

Nice spotting, yes I have whats called Excessive lordosis ( basicly what you said)

 

How can I fix the pulling under the arms? I was thinking maybe the Regular fit instead of the slim?

I'd reduce the yoke by 0.25" to 0.5", add rear darts and increase the bicep measurement slightly, reducing the yoke might fix the lines you have between your chest and armpit.

I too have lordosis. I found that reducing the back waist by 0.5 inches really helps with the lower back billowing.

I'd suggest starting with that reduction and modify with subsequent orders.

Not bad I think.


Fantastic! How did you provide your measurements if you don't mind my asking? Did you measure an existing shirt by laying flat, wore a shirt and measured or provide a sample shirt? This seems gorgeous.

It is a process. I haven't got it right immediately, it took me at least 3-4 shirts (iterations) to get the fit I like. 

I started with measuring my best fitting shirt in a way that Luxire recommends - link. Haven't send a shirt to be copied.

Fabulous jacket. Can I ask who made it?

No problem @bullrams

@mortgagebank it is bespoke from Graham Browne (City, London)

Received my 6th and 7th luxire shirt. I'm pretty satisfied with the fit since the 3rd shirt, but I keep tweaking every order.

One of them was this white linen cotton shirt. It's a great casual shirt for summer days like these. Fabric is see through, but works well with rolled up sleeves and a white tee. Picture is a self shot at work, but gives a good impression.

Nice, looks like you've gotten the fit down really well. Deets on your collar? Unlined?

Looks very nice, I just ordered the same fabric over the weekend. This pic is making me hope mine comes in soon!

Great, I'm also very interested!

Here is mine (I don't have an overly prominent chest, mind you). I use this for all shirts other than popovers.

Chest 21"
Back Waist 19.50"
Front Waist 20.50"
Bottom 21.5"

The result for me is the right balance of slim yet comfortable. Higher rise trousers help with this.

It looks super strange untucked. When tucked in, it is okay. I feel the shirt on my body, but it is not necessarily uncomfortable.

I posted it here : http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/11100_100#post_7221650

I do have a wide chest and a small waist, but my dimensions seems really out there esp. if I am trying to wear untcuked.

I think the chest looks good in that pic at 21.5, maybe I should let the waist out from 17.5 inch to 18.5inches. What do you guys think or maybe even more?

Also, take the bottom from 23inch to 21inch.
"
Length of the shirt I am thinking like 29inches to wear both tucked and untucked. I am 5'11"

Why do you have a diff in your front and back waist?
