I would agree, I've had only successful orders from Luxire, and will continue to order because I like them.  But nothing on the customer end is at fault in this situation, the error stems from the shipper, I would have expected luxire to eat all costs in this scenario, if not just to satisfy a potential long-term customer.

Many thanks.

 The scale of the check is measured according to inch wise, that is 1"(x) * 1"(y) = 6 rectangular * 5 rectangular. Please find attachment below for better clarification of the scale dimension. The "rectangles" are 5mm x 4.25mm

Point noted.

 

To begin with, we have increased the cost of shipping to Russia.

Thanks gentlemen for support. If you need any details me or Luxire can provide it. I understand that a lot of people here deal with Luxire for long time with no problem and even if I dealt with them for long time and this was the only problem I would not even consider it as a real problem. But this was my first time and as someone said  "you will never have a second chance to make a good first impression".

Hi All,

 

Can someone please explain the difference between fused and unfused interlining, and which fabrics they work best with?

 

I know for OCBDs people prefer unfused and unlined collars, and for crisp white shirts to be worn only with ties that a collar with structure makes sense. Beyond that I'm a bit lost. Thanks.

Interlining is a piece of fabric sandwiched between the two outer pieces of the shirt cloth in the collar. The interlining can be seen as a skeleton which provides rigidity and shape to the collar.

On a fused collar the interlining is glued/fused to usually one (but sometimes both) of the outer facing fabrics.

On an unfused collar the interlining is sewn into position between the two outer facing fabrics.

I work in a conservative business environment and wear a tie almost every day. To me unfused collars are a pain to deal with. They tend to bunch up and create a ridge at the tip of the collar which I don’t like.

I have for my last orders chosen a middle ground; fused collars but with a very light interlining. You still get a nice roll but still have some structure.

But I guess that people’s taste differ so I would recommend that you play around with both factors and see what suits you.

Does the name Carlo Riva interest anyone?

 

Am told that these are THE FINEST shirting in the world. We are working on adding them to our offerings.

Anyways: We exchanged 14 mails with nnnick to solve the issue. Problem is that Fedex chose not to deliver the packet and send the item back to us in India. As neither of us were at fault, Luxire offered to split the cost of return shipping, return duties and re-shipping with the customer.

 

On he not accepting the offer to split the fees, it was withdrawn.

 

He chose to dispute the transaction with Paypal and we await arbitration.

---------

He is well within his rights to bring his grievance to the forum and we are glad he chose to do so. Luxire is a feedback driven company and such incidents help us get better.

Out of curiosity, was there a reason FedEx chose not to deliver?

 

While it would not be required of Luxire to cover the cost, it would, in my opinion, go a long way to building brand loyalty, especially when realizing that it's a relatively nominal cost ($15-20).

 

From what I can tell, unless the fault was entirely on the receiver, I would like to see the sender stand behind (read: pay for issues) the shipping vendor they choose to use for any issues arising with the shipment.

 

Note: again, this assumes the receiver is not at fault. While it would similarly go a long way to building brand loyalty in my opinion, offering to pay for someone else's errors would be silly.

 

@Henry Carter nailed it.

Absolutely. Our dear Sartodinazoli loves them.

This made me chuckle. And you know exactly why...

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.

 

I have a pair of olive moleskin trousers and I like the color. Not all shiny. They are fairly casual, however. Perhaps cavalry twill in olive if you need something more dressy? 


Have a look at my green corduroy trousers:

If a Dugdale fabric is sold out, can it be reordered? Interested in the "burnt red plain." It seems like it would be the best choice for a Nantucket Red makeup

If a Dugdale fabric is sold out, it means it has been discontinued. If you send an email, we will try and find out something similar for you in Brisbane Moss and other options.
