Skipped this time, fearing deal overkill.

Came across this in our collection.  4 Oz cotton twill.

First outing for my Chocolate Duck Canvas trousers today. Whoever said these couldn't be worn as semi-formal wear...you were right.

Happy Wednesday fellas.

I'm going to take the plunge with Luxire as my guy from Hong Kong has really started to let standards slip lately.

I plan on sending them shirts to work from for sizing, however I wear French/double cuff for work and single for casual and want to get both done. Should I sent in a French cuff for them to copy for one order and a single cuff for them to copy the sizing from for another order?

Also, if I'm going to send them shirts to copy should I still bother with a trial shirt or just order the fabric I want?

Personally, I found measuring my existing best fitting shirts by following the instructions on their website worked well. I went straight in with an order based on those. Didn't bother with the trial shirt. Now I've placed another order and tweaked from the last ones. Nearly there.

I recommend the route of sending in a shirt. Just measuring does not necessarily capture the slope of your shoulders and when your shirt's bespoke you'll save yourself a few iterations.

 

Send in just one shirt and specify which cuffs and collar you want, if necessary via image. Luxire has done all of them before

 

I recommend their prepaid express shipping:

Send in your shirt if you can be without one for 4-6 weeks.  They will copy it exactly.  Without a doubt, the easiest and best way to dial in your measurements.

Are there any coupons at the moment? Looking to try Luxire after a few attempts at proper cloth.

How was your experience with Proper Cloth?

Presumably not great. I'd be curious to know what was unsatisfactory.

 

Fwiw, I don't have an easy body to size for, and the only errors PC made was my own fault.

Overall I had an excellent experience with them. I happen to be of slim build but with a 42" chest. PC's armpit area isn't customizable so I had to over-build the arms. I also have small wrists so while the upper arms were loose, the lower arms were tight. I simply need to try another brand to see if I can find a happy medium.

Often MTM is much harder to nail down size in than OTR.

You just can't get too caught up in "Perfection." You have to recognize that MTM is going to be the best fitting shirt you wear, but don't obsess over little details. No one will notice a quarter-inch here and there, or that the shoulder slope isn't perfect, except for you.

 

...At least, that's what I repeatedly tell myself.

Good advice. I had a good fit with luxire. I screwed with it so much I had to go back and resend a shirt to copy again.shog[1].gif

I think they keep all previous orders on file, so you could always roll back to the old pattern.
