I'd also be interested to hear about other spread collars people like for their polo orders.

 

There was discussion about the collar around the time of @Monkeyface 's post above, with @KingPSQ showing a version he did as well.

Yeah, I just ordered a navy jersey version today. I will update with photos and review. I took Monkeyfaces order number and based it off of that one.

Hi everyone,
Hoping you can provide some guidance - I purchased a luxire peacoat and just received it today. It's everything I thought it would be and more. Am surprised at how well it fits considering this is my first go-around at online MTM but unfortunately there is one problem with the fit -



As evidenced the shoulder seam has a bit of a point that gives the illusion I'm wearing shoulder pads - can anyone explain the root cause of this problem and if this is something that can be fixed? I would assume it be the result of improper shoulder measurements but my shoulder ends right before/at the point o the shoulder point (although I may be incorrect). Does anyone have an idea on how it happened/can it be fixed?

Even when the peacoat is laid flat the shoulder points up a bit - does that mean it's intentional?

Thanks!

I like the longflower or one piece collar on polo shirts. My luxire made long sleeve is one of my fav.

That being said, prob likely to go a presidential collar on the next polo.

@luxire

Can you let us know if there will be a January sale this year?

Many thanks

None of the images in the product listing appear to have a roped shoulder; did you ask for any customizations? FWIW, I don't think it makes you look like you're wearing shoulder pads at all, but I'm not a fan of the proportion of the roping here. I won't pretend to know how much surgery it would take to eliminate this, but I suspect it may involve the arm hole in addition to the shoulder.

That downplayed Tommy Nutter roping has hit a number of Luxire jackets. It's the only thing holding Luxire jackets back at this point, from the pictures I've seen. The button holes are now beautiful, the stitch has always been impressive, but the inconsistent roping can be a bit funky IMO.

@luxire Any white oxford under the $200 price point yall have been happy with?

For what it's worth: I haven't encountered this on any of my Luxire jackets, but I did have a similar roped effect on some vintage coats I bought and my local tailor was able to smooth them out relatively cheap and easily.

I asked for a few customizations, for instance the lapel is slightly larger than the original, it has larger buttons, and the leather accents are brown vs the black in the product listing. I don't believe that should have affected the shoulder roping so I think it may be an aesthetic choice.

That's good to know, thank you!

2016 wish list:

 

More cotton tweed pants similar to these. Just got them last week but they're awesome.

Regarding forward/sloping shoulder adjustments. Has anyone who had these adjustments done found that the resulting piece feels tighter across the upper back? My previous shirts felt like I had a bit more range of motion and less pulling around the armhole and back as far as reaching and bending forward. I don't have a picture, but reaching forward causes the sleeves to pull toward my chest a bit and definitely tightens noticeably around the upper back (anything north of the bottom of the shoulder blade). I'm going to reach out to Luxire again directly to ask for advice, but since their original advice has now caused this bind (pun intended, I suppose) I figured I'd also ask the community since the forward/sloping shoulders adjustment seems to be so common. I'm tempted to just increase the back-chest by .25" and see if that helps.

For my sloping shoulders Luxire recommended I increase the shoulder slope for future orders but also to decrease the yoke, something I'm not exactly comfortable doing. I already have slight pulling in the back but I wonder if increasing the slope also makes the yoke wider, therefore it needs to be compensated?

 

BTW I found the video which greatly explains the whole shoulder thing:

I'm not exactly sure what cotton tweed is? Are they dressy enough to wear with a jacket or are they strictly casual?
