Here is what we can do.  Will offer this pair of pants for $199.99 instead of $299.99, only if we receive 15 orders so that we can buy all the fabric they have available.


@luxire do you have access to the new flannels from Minnis? I don't want to presume anything. I do really like these:

Be curious as to the new flannels as well. Some of those colors are LUSH!

If Luxire recommends I decrease shoulder slope by .25", does that mean I should reduce the shoulder measurement in my order? Or do I ask for the same shoulder measurement and specify to decrease the slope by .25"?

 

Basically is shoulder slope the same as the shoulder measurement they ask when you make an order? Thanks!

No it isn't. Shoulder width is one thing, the slope in which it hangs is another. The shoulder slope is independent of the regular measurements and if not specified (or taken from a sent-in garment) the shoulder slope will be "default". If you need a non-default shoulder slope you can specify so in the comments box with your order.

Yes, we can get these. Will try and have them listed in about a week.

On my recent shirt orders I have been experiencing some issue around the upper part of the sleeves in that the sleeves become almost restrictive when I move my arms forward. I am trying to figure out how to alleviate this problem on my next orders. These are pictures of my most recent order. I probably should have taken the pictures at the beginning of the day instead of the end of the day so please excuse the wrinkling. The shirt has gone through 3 washes, if that matters at all.








I have tried increasing the armhole measurement (I feel like the armhole might be too low on this one) but problem still persists. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You have two options, one being to get your sleeves attached at a different angle (more like a T instead of /|\) on your next shirt.  A full armpit doesn't look as nice when your arms are at your sides but gives you full range of motion and I can't wear anything else anymore.  If you don't feel like experimenting with that, you should absolutely get a wider sleevecap and maybe increase your back width.  Armpit size isn't as relevant.

I found this post on improving shirt fit helpful when looking at my own shirts: http://www.rubenbakker.nl/analyzing-a-fitting-and-why-we-fit-garments-in-the-first-place/

post #20785 of 24612

That's a helpful post on fitting, appreciate you posting it.  Unfortunately, I'm not quite as confident applying those details to myself.

 

I have a large chest/waist drop and in my attempts to get a well-fitting shirt I've run into some difficulties that maybe some could advise on.  I recently placed my first order w Luxire but have it on hold until I get better measurements.

 

My waist is 31 and in my latest fit (using another MTM), I've used a 17.5 inch measurement.  However, when I sit and move around, it feels too restrictive as you can see the placket area bowing outwardly so I'm thinking of trying 18 inches.  However, my chest is 42 and as the shirt rises up, it's uncomfortable and creates this line across my lower chest.  I use 23.5 inches on my chest measurement.

 

I'm thinking of trying 18 inches and 23.5 inches on my Luxire order, but would you guys recommend doing a test shirt first?  Would Luxire make just one of the shirts in my order and put the rest on hold until I see how that one fits?

 

Thanks so much!

Just want to commend Luxire for great communication lately. I've been over-anxious about a shirt that shipped out there, and they kept me very updated on its journey. Always appreciated.

OK, so i took receipt of my first Luxire shirt yesterday, a Tuxedo shirt. I think the fit is good and will post fit pics later, but excuse my ignorance. This is my first shirt with a detachable collar. There is a slot on the collar to button in the front (I assume you use one of the four shirt studs, from your studs and cufflinks set, for the front) and a slot on the shirt and the collar for a fastening on the back. What do I fasten the back with? There are only two slots. I was expecting a button on the shirt to fasten the collar to.

Quick question on the base fabric wool flannel trousers: http://luxire.com/collections/pants/products/grey-wool-flannel

 

Some of the reviews mention that they are too thick to be used in anything over 40ish Fahrenheit.  Does anyone here have experience with them?  Strictly winter-weight?  Thank you.

Wearing mine today in London where the temperature is low 50s. I think they're fine and I have worn them on warmer days too. Plus inside in the office it's warmer again...

They are thick but quite spongy and the weave is comparatively open.

Just a point - they are quite casual, and bag out quite easily. Combined with the large weave and the mottled colouring this means they're only marginally a dress pant.
