Wow, I'd forgotten all about that.

It occurs to me that an enterprising person with design sense could partner with Luxire to create a line of clothing.

I have so far had great regards for Carl. I will not let a momentary lapse on his part change my thoughts.

 

99% of the items Luxire makes are normal shirts and pants. Which co-incidentally is the same for Carl as well.

 

So, he and I are doing the same thing: "inexpensive copies of the design and work of other tailors,shirtmakers, and designers." Some unknown set of designers born a few centuries ago.

 

Just that Luxire products are of much higher quality. May be that is bothering my friend.

 

You know Carl: Luxire is Luxire because of only one reason: Brutal honesty.

Be honest to yourself, may be you will not have enough time to threadcrap in the future.

My intention was not to be a dick..
just help supply industry information as i have done on this site for over 12 years.

In the past I have given advice on how to correct the fit on numerous MTM shirts.
including those made by Luxire.
I have communicated with someone at Luxurie when he first started.
seems like a nice enough guy.

I have no problem with Luxuire.

they are capable of making a lab coat. not that difficult.
For Luxire to start a new project he has to first source the correct fabric.
and make sure that the details are as expected.

If you want to experiment with a Luxire, then go ahead.

I was just doing what i have always done on this site.
pass on information that may not be readily available.

What is the obsession with Oxford Collar Button Down shirts? I constantly see questions in this thread about luxire's OCBD shirts? I haven't worn an oxford shirt since boarding school. Are they back in style? The fabric is okay i guess, although I'd probably just go with one of luxire's wool/flannel shirt fabrics instead (for example: http://cdn.styleforum.net/f/f5/900x900px-LL-f507e2a4_Peach_Green_Cream_Gingham.jpeg or http://cdn.styleforum.net/0/07/900x900px-LL-07819722_Scottish_Green_Blue_Tartan_Flannel.jpeg ). I certainly wouldn't want buttons on my collar. Am I missing something (not really up to date in the fashion world...am I doing a big faux pas by shunning OCBD shirts). And on that matter, how are luxire jeans? I haven't worn jeans since I was in middle school, always just wear various colored chinos. But after seeing Costco jeans for $20 a pair that looked pretty nice, I thought about trying jeans again, but given my fat frame, I figured I'd go with MTM jeans from Luxire...

Totally. Another thing I just don't get is the obsession with solid navy suits. They're okay I guess but they're just so boring. I think I'll probably just go with something like this.

The simple answer is versatility.

 

Take the blue OCBD. You can wear it to 99% of workplaces in america. You can wear it with "bizcaz" chinos and wool trousers. You can pair it with a jacket and tie, or just a jacket.

You can also wear it outside of work, with shorts and with the sleeves rolled up in the summer, or with denim in the winter, or more casual chinos, or anything else.

 

Basically, OCBDs are the only shirt that essentially fit into every hole in a wardrobe (although in some cases not perfectly). They are the jack of all trades.

 

Finally, and most importantly for luxire, they're forgiving. If your fit is off in a poplin, broadcloth, twill, etc, then it's evident. If your fit is off an inch or two here and there on an OCBD then it's much harder to tell and doesn't look nearly as bad. Consequently, the first few shirts people tend to order from luxire are OCBDs, as they are wearable even if the fit is off (off too big, obviously, not off too small).

 

Hopefully that answered your question. That first shirt you posted is definitely a beauty, though.

People like OCBDs because they are a bit more casual than shirts that do not have a button down collar. Some people, myself included, do not care for button down collars and hardly ever wear them. I happen to think that a standard moderate spread collar shirt works just fine in lieu of an OCBD and they look better with suits (and, IMO, even when wearing a sport coat and tie). They are widely considered a staple, but if you don't care for them, don't feel like you have to own one.

There is no ‘obsession’ and they've never been 'out of style':   the button-down has been part of classic style for well over a hundred years as a more casual collar which can be worn either with or without a tie, depending on context.

 

These days it’s hard to find good ones off-the-rack (e.g., few have an attractive ‘roll’), hence the discussions here.

 

Cheers,

It's also an American thing, and most of the posters here are Americans.

There is certainly is no obsession but personally it's extremely difficult to find a good RTW OCBD that fits well, uses quality fabrics, and has a desirable collar roll that also sits well upon my frame. The malls and big box stores sell endless OCBD shirts due to their obvious versatility but in my opinion almost all of them miss the mark in the aforementioned details.

@luxire apologies if this has been covered before, but is there any chance you can source terry 'towelling' material (http://www.orlebarbrown.co.uk/men/polos/terry/white)

 

Would be great to stock this in time for the summer!

My tux will be shipped next week. Stay tuned.

Is it terry on both sides or only one? Can be on the lookout next time we go knitted shopping.
