post #20266 of 24643

How do you guys usually put on a popover? I just had one made but can't even fit through the bottom to put it on. I know quite a few people have said they haven't changed their measurements so I just left it to luxire, but I was expecting it to be adjusted slightly to allow my shoulders through at least.

Blue Denim Slubby Chambray (Timo BD V2)

The two right images on Lux's website are a very accurate color representation of real life (on my monitor). The material is slightly stiff and the fit is slightly tighter than previous shirt orders but should break in and stretch nicely over time. I plan to pair this with my navy ties and tweed sportcoats

 

Vista Blue Dress Stripes (Timo BD V2)

Color representation again is good. This particular shade of blue will work very well with most essential colored neckties. Fabric is soft and feels durable.

 

Luxire White Poplin 100/2 (NOBDII)

I previously ordered a shirt in the Luxurious Fine White fabric and this feels very similar…which means it wrinkles extremely easily, slightly see-through, and paper thin. Don't expect this fabric to replace to any serious formal white dress shirt as it's clearly for super casual occasions. The only saving grace here is the fact the NOBDII collar is fantastic with a sportcoat and tie. My quest for the perfect white dress shirt continues…

 

Wool Rich Navy Pants

Absolute winner. I've only ordered chinos from Lux and thankfully I didn't have to make any adjustments going from cotton to wool. The fabric is wonderful with good drape. Color is definitely a true business navy rather than midnight. I forgot that wool isn't as forgiving and doesn't "give" like cotton so the fit every so slightly more snug. Probably not worth adjusting my measurements however. If I didn't already own similar colors in Lux's other Wool-Rich fabrics I would order them immediately. Hopefully they will release a charcoal version and a chocolate or rust color.

That's really a sham about the luxire poplin. I had high hopes

Did you get shirring @ armholes on the Blue Denim Slubby Chambray? I have a shirt in the fabric as well but didn't get it shirred, wasn't sure how it would look on a more rugged cloth.

I did but because of the fabric texture the shirring is subtle. Thanks

Hi, I like this look where the tie know sits high on the neck.  I was told on another post that the collar is higher on such shirts (i assume its the collar band?)  And i would guess the collar point needs to be longer then.  Any one could advice on the dimensions of such shirt collars and collar b

 

and to achieve this look?

post #20272 of 24643

Thanks for the pics!  It'd be great to see the Timo BD collar in action with and without a tie, if/when you have a sec.  The collar point lengths seem a bit intimidating in size to me, but I'm definitely intrigued.  I've been using the Broke and Bespoke collar but would also like a little bit more spread and stiffness for use with ties.

Thanks for the review. Realistically, almost all Poplin wrinkles easily and is slightly sheer. I'll report back on the G&R 2/140s soon, but my Alumo Supraluxe shirts all crease significantly throughout the day. However, I do have a sample of Alumo Soyella 2/170s, which I believe is a voile, and the sample is showing crease resistance.
