I would like something similar to the denim shirts like the ones by Acne here; http://shop.acnestudios.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=denim+shirt&source=main-nav

 

Would be especially interested in something close to this type/wash of denim: 

 

Thank you for posting this. Denim for shirts and pants has been on our to-do for some time now.  Will try and add options  in a week.

 

Some available options are:

Did you require a signature when you sent it ? I think you would have to do that to get a signature

It is the fabric we are currently offering with our casual denim shirt. It is a mid-weight shirting denim.

Just got my first shirt and would love some feedback on fit (quality for this price is superb btw, I'm thoroughly impressed). The shirt is definitely tight in my shoulder and armhole (maybe yoke?) area and seems a touch too slim through my body. Sleeve width needs to be slimmed as well. I just have a tough time on exactly how much to increase and decrease measurements. Any thoughts?

Is this shirt for your yoga class?

Waaaay too tight. Try taking your chest and waist measurements and adding 5" to chest and 4" to waist, and see how that compares.

+1-2" in the chest.  +1" length if you are tucking it.

Great thread this! Gotten really interested in shirts from Luxire lately, and yesterday this picture on your site caught my eye:

 

The shirt on the right - What kind of style and what kind of fabric is used? Really liked it :)

I would add half an inch in the chest, armhole, and probably the sleeve (it looks like it may be too short when you bend your elbow). Add an inch in the length. Don't slim the sleeves.

Cool, thanks all. Going to make some adjustments and order a second one. Shirt is definitely snug in some areas but it's wearable -- very good chance I just suck at measuring myself.

Thought this post from Despos in another thread might be of interest to people trying to work out their correct measurements:

"
Measure the shirt flat on a table, shirt has every button buttoned. Measure across the chest at the bottom of the armhole. Make sure the shirt is stretched out flat and not bunched up anywhere.

If you have a 40" chest and add 3" to the circumference of the shirt chest you will get 21.5" when you measure the shirt the way described. Total measure is 43", this is a very "snug" fit. This may be way too tight for some or just snug to others. Depends on your tolerance for a close fit. 40" chest + 2" would be a very tight fit. Not recommended. A deep breadth would pop a button.

40 + 4" is a trim fit. Measuring across the chest will be 22"

40 + 5" is normal fit by today's standards. Even + 6" would be right for some.
Those big baggy BB shirts are something like +8" or sometimes more in the chest.

Works the same for the waist except don't use your trouser waist measurement. Use the measurement over any love handles. The largest part of your waist above the trouser waist. if you use your trouser measurement, the shirt won't fit.

If you want a good fit without much extra fabric but not over trim try +5" on the chest and +4" on the waist. Again, how comfortable these formulas work depend on the individual and your body type. What is loose or tight is very subjective to each individual.
