I agree with you on this. I have a couple early 15" orders and one on them is borderline on too tight while the other is perfect. When laid down flat and measured, they are both spot on at 15". My shirts since then are 15.25 and that seems to be just enough to solve the problem.

 

I've always assumed the variances in cloth thickness cause it. But if you try to prove it with math (circles and circumferences, etc.) it takes a pretty big collar thickness to add up to an additional 0.25" circumference. This makes me assume there are other variables to consider. Perhaps for example how well the neck band rolls around your neck without creasing, how tight the neck button is sewed, etc. It's easy enough to adjust a button to make a difference.

As you've mentioned the sky blue is lighter in colour but I would say that the classic blue oxford is noticeably thicker than the sky blue oxford. And from that, I would gather that the warzone oxford is on par with the classic blue and possibly slightly thicker, but I don't know.

 

According to the emails from Luxire (order confirmation) the other shirt is not of the sky blue and not of the royal oxford fabric.

strange. in the details for those fabrics, the information is all the same - 2 ply 100% premium cotton, classic oxford by brembana.

Xtra, are your two shirts of the same configuration?
Maybe ones feels heavier to you than the other because it sits on your body differently?
I too still can't believe there is a difference in the two fabrics other from the color.

I'm trying to get that right too. 16.25 for me should work.

Somewhat different configuration on shirt #2 (sky blue) to shirt #1 (classic blue) yes.

 

I think your hypothesis is correct. Maybe the difference in colour and altered measurements in some way makes me think that the fabrics are different, when there is no actual difference in "reality".

 

Tried on both shirts now and did a direct comparison and they seem to be of the exact same thickness, sorry for derailing this thread. tounge.gif

Just rec'd a shirt in sky blue dobby twill. The fabric seems very nice - soft, silky, and looks like it will iron very easily.
Like many, I have tinkered with different collar types and fusing/lining etc. For this one, I think I hit the nail on the head for my preference. I sent them a picture of a collar I wanted to have replicated and asked that they go with he lightest fusing and softest interlining, fwiw. What I got was a great collar - very pliable but certainly not as soft and informal as an unfused collar. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Nice! Mine are coming tomorrow and the collars aren't that nice. Can you get pictures of you wearing them with a tie?

 

And do you think you can post the order number so I can possibly ask for a shirt with the same collar? :-D

+1, also interested in seeing how it looks being worn with a tie and the order #. :p

I'll order a pair of jeans and let everyone know how they turn out.

 

My coat should also be here soon. Will post pictures of that too.

Made of 100% cotton which includes some % of organic cotton as well.

 

Weight: between 11 and 13.5 oz. Will add individual weight and possibly warp-weft info with individual fabric images

 

In what parameter do I give you the stretch?

 

None of them are actually rough textured. The bottom one is the lightest and the one above it is the softest. The one on the top right has small white dots and feels very good too. We are making a sample in it which should be ready the coming week.

 

Overall, these are excellent everyday denim, custom made at $79.99

 

Do you have / will you get selvedge denim at some point? I'd definitely order some custom-made selvedge if it were an option.

I too would order a pair of jeans if Theresa would be able to share some more information on the fabrics with us and show us some pictures of the hardware they got.
If I order I will send in a pair of APC NS as a design sample for those who like their minimalistic styling just as much as I do.

I requested the same fusing/interlining on my last shirt and love the results too. It's very comfortable but still looks sharp.

I am told that they are on the way. If that is true, we should have them in a week.

 

In the mean time, we are preparing ourselves for the hidden rivets, waistband embedded belt loops, selvedge coin-pockets, fly,  loops and your custom requests.

 

Bought some nice, heavy duty buttons today. The rivets are not bad but will get better.

 

Will add pictures soon.

Always appreciated. Anticipating a great job by Luxire I'm sure. And if the jeans aren't ideal fabric now, I'm sure they will be later.

 

But that said, I don't anticipate ever ordering jeans since I know nothing about them.
