Couple of my shirts from Luxire in last few months..have been happy with all of them. There have been minor issues here and there but nothing which couldn't be resolved by emailing luxire..

The twill flannels are fantastic. I got the blue and the red and they're great. I took the opportunity of the sales price to mess around with some styling choices and one of them fell flat, my fault not Luxire's. It's workable but the fabric is so nice that I wish I hadn't played around with it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Fabric, collar details?

 

As an aside, I find it interesting that everyone in this thread seems

 

1. Very anti-pocket.

 

2. Very anti-fusing.

Yes death to pockets on shirts, unless your an engineer named Dilbert

I suppose it's more of a southern thing.

The vast majority of shirts I buy now are pull overs and every last one of them has a pocket on the front. I actually based the pocket dimensions off of large pocket on an EG work shirt and it is superb. Fits my phone or a pair of Raybans.

Exactly. I often have my sunglasses in mine when indoors. I hate putting them anywhere else, as on my head or placket are the only other options and they both disagree with me.

Yep, I always get a pocket, two for most sport shirts.  With buttons, mainly so I can slip the sunglasses arms through the buttonhole so they won't fall out.

 

Edit:  Here's an old pic:

Well not really seen in the pics, but I got left chest pocket on most of my shirts. I am just used to the chest pocket and find them useful..

 

The collar is a modified version of Proper cloth - President Semi spread (5 inch spread). Fabrics are -

2) http://custom.luxire.com/products/monti_purple_white_small_gingham_twill

3)http://custom.luxire.com/products/green-black-tattersall-soft-twill

 

Others are also twill but not sure exactly which ones..

One my favorite things about ordering my shirts is that I can put a pocket on 'em all. I have eye drops, at least, in my pocket at all times (lasik).

I'm also team front pocket on my casual shirts.  They're very useful.

post #21478 of 24710

+1 for team pockets on all my Luxire shirts. (I'm also in the popover shirt camp)

 

I have been working with them to perfect the shape of a flowing curved pocket that's somewhere between a Monitaly workshirt pocket (or a Levis M&C curved shirt pocket) and a Neapolitan sport coat patch breast pocket.

I know man, it's such a lovely fabric. Feels so comfortable and snug this time of year too! I've also got the teal green as a popover. Regret not ordering the red one as the price was so good. Nevermind.

I'm a bit disappointed with my twill flannel shirt, actually. It's had two or three washes so far (40 °C, 900 rpm, hang to dry), and there's already some kind of (mild) pilling all over the shirt. Maybe my other flannel shirts have this as well and it's just more visible due to the color of the shirt. Perhaps all brushed flannel shirts needs to be washed separately? Anyway, this shirt has already been "demoted" from office/everyday use to just weekends/at home. The dress code at work is casual, but this just looks too casual with the pilling.
