Good choice on the NOBD2. It just about fits under the jacket for me.
In terms of shrinkage I haven't noticed much, if any as I'm sure they pre-wash their materials before cutting.

Hi All! Also still got no reply for my email to Luxire regarding order 16048.

Thanks!



I think it's very versatile. Bear in mind this is the sky blue chambray and so the collar roll is more pronounced than with other thicker materials. Hope that helps.

I'll answer with respect to the polo cloths, since I've had two with NOBDII:

  • The collar size is relative to everything else, but with a ~16" neckband my first collar stayed under about 75% of my jackets
  • On my second I just asked Luxire to lengthen the collar points by 1cm and this version stays under 100%
  • Polo cloths don't have stays, and are much more inclined to curl up out of jackets, so for regular shirting I expect you will have much more room for error. That said, you could always ask for a slightly larger / longer pointed NOBDII on your first order and adjust from there.

 

Shrinkage: I lost about 1-2cm across the chest on the first wash, mayble 2cm in length, but it varies from cloth to cloth. I would have erred slightly on the larger side, but it's still wearable.

Hello, can anyone tell me the instruction to remove too much fabric at the neck to eliminate a fold behind the neck?

post #21426 of 24677
Thank you for the help gentlemen. I'll go with the NOBD2 with slightly longer collar points then.

That's very helpful, thank you.

 

I need to order a replacement standard white dress shirt, and am trying to decide between their semi-spread with medium fusing and the NOBD II with medium fusing. They seem to be fairly similar with the exception of collar points being .25" longer, and maybe a difference in band height? Not sure. It appears you did not fuse the band at all, would you say that was a good call?

 

Anyways, this helps, as I was worried the NOBD, when fused, would be too large, based on the single other picture I saw. Your picture seems to indicate this is not the case, and it is a very "standard" size.

No problem. It's all about personal preference isn't it. The NOBD2 in my opinion is a much more versatile shape than the NOBD and straddles the formal/semi-formal really well. I can't really comment on the band fusing as I've never really cared at all about it. If I'm honest I don't really know why I would get the band fused. I assume it would increase the formality slightly? I'm pleased with what they did anyway and I went pretty standard really. Will you always wear it unbuttoned?

I could see myself wearing the NOBD1 with jacket and tie for a very "take ivy" look, but honestly I don't wear jacket and tie enough to justify it. 

 

I'll mostly wear it unbuttoned. I work in a business casual office where no one wears ties. I've been really inspired by pictures of sid mashburn and similar clothing styles lately, and would really like to start pushing my office style in that direction, although with some subtle differences (and less ties).

Hi everybody! I'm not famous for posting on forums usually only a reader. But this time I have something to say and this is about not very good experience with Luxire. I always have problem with square shoulders and not many shirts fit OTR that is why I interested in MTM shirts and have read quite a lot topics about different MTM makers. Luxire grabbed my attention with its quick and kind responds on this topic and I decided to try. I ordered Forest Green On White University Stripes OCBD. Very quickly I received shipping confirmation and Fedex tracking number. Here in Moscow, Russia I was waiting for my shirt refreshing Fedex page to see where it was at the moment until I saw exclamation mark in tracking and "shipment exception. Exceed Service Limits - Oversized" at Stansted GB. At first I thought it was some kind of mistake and decided to wait a couple of days. After nothing changed I contacted Luxire to ask if Fedex contacted them to solve the problem. I was surprised at asking me to call fedex and ask them what was the problem as it was not even my country Fedex office where my package stuck. After calling Fedex I found out that it was some kind of problem with registering of seller in Fedex system so fedex couldn't deliver the package and sent the package back to India. I described situation to Luxire and gave them the new tracking number for shipped package. Upon arrival at destination as I was told by Luxire Fedex charged them 38$ for shipping it back, 14$ for custom clearance and they need another 20$ to ship my shirt to me with another service. As a sign of a "good will" they just asked me to cover the half of these expenses. At first I didn't read their email very carefully and I thought  that I was supposed to pay 14$ extra for more expensive shipping as Luxire couldn't send it by Fedex and I promptly paid that amount. After that I was explained that it was custom clearance only and I have to pay half of 38+20 equals 29$ To say I was shocked is to say nothing. The argument was that it is Fedex's fault. I replied that I understand that Luxire had problem with Fedex and suggested to ask them for refund. Their reply was even more strange. Luxire said that before Fedex didn't refund in such cases and invited me to try to solve this problem with Fedex. I wasn't even Fedex's customer in that case, what cpuld I claim? I paid the seller for shipping not to Fedex. They also said that quality of shipping service is the same (terrible???) amongst the big three Fedex, DHL, UPS. I said that didn't agree to share Luxire's business risks and pay any more extra to het what I already paid for. After that I was said that because I don't understand they changed their mind to pay half of these expenses and I have to pay all of it 20+38 = 58$ extra of what I already paid (79.99$ for a shirt, 25$ for shipping and 14$ for custom clearance). So the total would be like 79.99$ for a shirt and 97$ for "shipping". I found it unacceptable that a company making business and put company business risks on customers. In that case they are not customers but partners and should share year bonuses as well. Now I opened the claim in paypal system and hoping to get all my money back as I have no further plans to deal with Luxire. It is a bad experience but it is an experience anyway. Even if don't get my money back and my post will be deleted I have to say that I'm against such business models. In my country it is called fraud no more no less.

I assume that you automatically receive a request to review your purchases, since I received one a couple of days ago, for an order that's not even shipped yet. 

 

On a side note, I was sad to discover that the iphone 6 case costs 100$ now/

Agreed!

No ones fault but your problem to fix IMO. If it's your carrier and your freight account then you are responsible for it getting to the customer once he has paid for the order, trying to charge more after the fact has only seen you lose a customer (and possibly more). My honest feedback.

Obviously we only know partial details, but I tend to agree. And that is with the understanding that I've never had a luxire issue, at all.
