post #20881 of 24612
I'm having a tough time getting used to MTM shirts. I've usually had clothing that was probably too baggy in the body, but it was comfortable!

Now I find tailored clothing a bit restricting, especially across the back and against the waist, when I am seated typing at my desk or reaching for stuff - is that normal?

Probably too slim fitting if you feel restricted.

Guys,

What are your expereince trying to remove pesky back roll?
After sending shirt to replicate I've got first shirt with the roll. Asking to fix it in second iteration I got messed up neck/shoulder lin with unclean upper back and some pulling on neck/shoulders.
Not sure if I should trust Luxire trying to fix it further?



Regards

Yes and no, though. If you're not used to MTM / tailored clothing, you may find it restricting when it in fact fits well. It really depends on the person and how loosely they used to wear their clothes. I, for one, took a while to get used to the feeling of tightness across my back / under my armpits when I reach my arms straight forward.

@NOBD Did you line your flannels or do the collars stand up fine without any lining?

I got a pair of those last week.  I totally love them!

Has anybody had a suit made by Luxire? I know their shirts and trousers are very high quality, but I haven't seen any posts regarding them making a suit. I am looking for a soft English tailored suit similar to A&S, Mahon and Steed. Can Luxire do this well? Any suggestions?

 

Also, I have been looking at the tweeds on their site, I was wondering what the general consensus is regarding tweeds being used for odd trousers. I like the weight of it and the texture and it isn't super formal (I work in a relaxed atmosphere) but when I've talked to 2 tailors in NYC, they all say tweed for pants alone is a very bad idea. I don't get why?

I believe @EFV has. He's featured in it at Luxire's front page (tan suit, handsome gentleman). I know another member had a Caruso Sartoria Parma SC replicated with great success as well.

Lined, in accordance with the default description I've come up with with Luxire: SOFT unfused, but with some body so that the collar is not floppy.

Can't wait for my twill shirts. Regretting not getting the red now as it looks less intense than I thought it would.
