post #21586 of 24965

Hi all,

 

Happy first-time Luxire customer here, very quick realisation with a delivery 8 days after placing my order. Great shirt made according to my requirements, except for the shirt length 1/2inch longer than asked (not an issue really). Thanks everyone for posting their feedbacks, very helpful.

 

I would be grateful to hear your thoughts on my ideas to improve my current fit, I think there is 3 issues

 

- Sleeves length : too long, I am thinking to shorten them by 1 inch

 

- Yoke : too large, I am thinking to reduce that by 1/2 inch (enough?)

 

- Overall shape : I have a "triangle" shaped torso as can be seen on the back picture. The width difference between my shoulders and my waist is quite important therefore a lot of fabric is "floating" around my waist. What I have in mind to improve that aspect is to widen both waist and bottom by 1/4 inch in order to improve proportions.

 

 

  Current Alteration
 Neck 15,5  
 Sleeve 35,75 -1
 Chest 21,50  
 Waist 19,00 +0.25
 Bottom 20,00 +0.25
 Yoke 18,50 -0.5
 Biceps 8,25 -0,25
 Armhole 9,75  
 CuffSize 8,50  
 Length 31,50 -0,5

 

Lustrous Fine White Fabric with English spread collar with 3.5" collar wings (picture taken after a long day)

 

Good evening.

I'm no expert but I would decrease the yoke and request darts in the back to take up some material. Hope that helps.

Your right shoulder is lower than your left, which is probably why that triangle crease is happening. It would also be helpful to take a photo without all those wrinkles but someone who also owns that fabric, good luck.

Anyone see a Navy on Navy seersucker - like the attached - on the site. @luxire any plans for something like that?

Not available currently. We can get one of our seersuckers overdyed. Should look similar.

Hi
I'm looking to have my first pair of trousers made.
I want a casual chino and I find this cream twill chino:
http://luxire.com/collections/pants/products/cream-twill-chino

I read in the comments it is more an off white colour instead of cream, I also read it is quite transparent. Better to have it made lined to the knee?
Do you have some advice about this particular fabric or do you want to advice another colour ( still in beige/cream/stone/ tan)?
I also like this: http://luxire.com/collections/pants-sorted-by-price/products/light-tan-twill-chino but I'm not sure about the colour, I prefer the first one.

But this was my first time and as someone said  "you will never have a second chance to make a good first impression".

Good day gentlemen. My story with Luxire finally is finished. Paypal made a decision on my claim to refund me full cost of my order due to no delivery. So I'm very glad that common sense still exists in this world. Good luck with your orders.

Recently got to wear the super heavy Luxire Plaid wool trousers again in freezing -8°C weather.

 

 

Current temperatures have risen slightly though:

Hey guys,

 

Has anyone done a one piece collar like the ones from Bntailor?

 

I'm a big fan of how the placket rolls :

 

 

If so, can you let me know a order #. Also can someone let me know why it rolls like that, versus the drooping of regular non one piece collar shirts?

Oh wow that's beautiful. Can you do this @luxire ?

Doesn't seem that different from luxire inhouse one piece so I'm sure they can replicate that if they haven't already.

That shirt fabric in the first pic looks awesome though.

Another one wearing heavyweight Luxire trousers in the cold snap, in this case the 'Mid Grey Wool Flannel 100% Wool'. Although only 12oz they are thick as anything and the warmest Luxire pants I have.
