Personally I'm curious when Luxire is going to reply to my email I sent 23 days ago on items that were made wrong and I wanted to send in for alterations.

Mail replies are fast these days. Can you send me a PM with your email id? I can have that email checked and replied to.

I have only ordered work shirts from Luxire so far - what are some modifications that you guys make when ordering a casual shirt? Do you order them a bit longer since they'll be untucked?

 

Side note - the Coffee Brown Cotton Tweed pants are awesome - highly recommend.

Actually do the opposite. Tucked shirts longer than the untucked ones.

Hi Luxire,

Perhaps a bit of an unconventional question: I'm in the Canadian military and one of my uniform parts - the Naval Combat Dress - 

 

 

...that I was issued is absolutely gigantic on me. I look ridiculous. They don't make any smaller sizes and my tailor has told me that there's no point in altering my current garment. I heard that you guys can replicate garments (I already know my measurements) so I was wondering if it was possible for you to do the same in a similar fabric if I were to send in my shirt?

Hi KWang, yes can be done. We should have a similar shade of blue else we can get it dyed for you.

Still waiting for the outcome of the first trial. Depending on how it goes, we will do the next round.

Fingers crossed. Would kill for a wearable turtle or mockneck sweater.

Pants and polo came in! Big fan so far, as this was my first order.

I didnt have high waisted pants to compare these to, so I asked them to make them high waisted and they hit it pretty spot on.

I asked to replicate a collar and they did pretty well too, overall very happy, but I need to tweak a few things for next time ( has more break than i'd like, but thats my fault, I deliberately made them longer so I could alter if need be).

Sorry about the bad photos.








Trial trousers



Polo in navy jersey ( I thought this was gonna be more tshirt esque, turns out its a bit piqueish)

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

Sorry for the late reply, but when you mention roll, what do you mean? I know with regular dress shirts some people greatly prefer a soft collar with minimal lining, but in my experience then the collar ends up laying flat on the shoulders of the shirt. 

 

So two questions:

 

(1) should a proper soft unfused collar fall over on the shoulders if you aren't wearing a jacket or was that the fault of the MTM tailor? I would prefer ordering my dress shirts with a soft collar but I don't want the collar to fall down on the shoulders of the shirt. I am hoping it was just a bad shirt (got it from one of the cheaper Chinese MTM options). If that is typical, is there a compromise for those that like a soft unfused collar? BTW, I am okay with removable collar stays if that really helps keep its shape for when I wear a tie (or without a tie, for that matter...)

(2) What kind of OCBD customizations do people ask for here? Or is there really only one way to do an OCBD collar?

Does anyone have experience with making up green trousers with Luxire fabric?

 

I was thinking about how useful a pair might be (also this, that) and was thinking that chino was the logical choice. The only Luxire chino I've had has been the test pant, which was much shinier (initially) and brighter than I expected for navy, and fairly lightweight. I'd like to avoid anything shiny, and get something a little heavier if possible, but I think that shade will be most important, since green is a bit unusual and I wouldn't want it to be too eye-grabbing (not a fan of red trousers, etc, for that reason). Any thoughts, experiences, suggestions? Thanks everyone.

 

Edit: @patliean1 did you get green trousers made in the end? I just remember reading that you were talking about it.

 

Looks like green twill might be an option, though it was considered a bit dark by some. There's not much point if it's indistinguishable from grey I suppose. Other options: olive green, racing green, providing they're not too bright in real life. It would be great if anyone who has tried them could comment.
