post #21856 of 24665

Gents,

 

Apologies if this has been asked before, tricky to search the forum as my net access in China keeps cutting out.

 

I am about to order my first test shirt. I will be submitting body measurements, rather than shirt measurements (not got a great fitting shirt to compare to). My question is, do I just include these in the notes when ordering? My main concern is around collar and cuffs, for example. So, I measure around 14.5 neck, and so want a 15 inch collar. I am assuming I would state my measurement but that I want 15 inch in the notes? In addition, my wrists are 6.5 inches (dainty, I know!!!), and so I want my french cuffs to be around 8 inches. Again, would I state 6.5 inch wrist and then also quote the fact I want the french cuffs to be 8 inches? I assume this is the case....

 

Also, I haven't really taken in to account shrinkage. So, an example is my shoulders are 18 inches, would anyone go for 18.25 to allow for this or stick closer to 18?

 

Advice is much appreciated as I will order my first test shirt tomorrow.

 

Cheers!

I've never done body measurements, but I assume you'd do it the way you've described. They will read everything you have to say, but the best advice is to be orderly and logical in your descriptions. Whenever I order, I assume they see instructions 100x/day and try to give it to them straight with a short list of bullet points. Therefore, you could say "Here are the exact body measurements:..." and then follow that with "Here are the measurements I request for the shirt..." In this way, you're essentially giving shirt measurements rather than using body measurements.

As for shrinkage, I can be corrected here, but I've found that they adjust measurements based on shrinkage. They know the fabrics well and test them out as they assume the customer, who's likely never felt that exact fabric, will have no idea how to account for it.

Can we still ship items to be copied to the Portland address?  I went to the Luxire website and it now only lists the India address along with a $20 prepaid option for shipping.

Luxire,

 

Thanks for the linen sale!

 

I just ordered some long standing wish list items for this summer.

Does anyone have pictures of or comments on the Dugdale Fine Worsted British Racing Green trousers? Would love to see them in the wild, especially since Dugdale swatches are not available. Thanks!

How long will the linen sale be open? Is it just for shirts or also for pants?

It's for everything, as long as it's made out of linen - just check the fabrics and you will see, that they also offer pants :)

Hey Guys,

 

I recently received my third attempt for a pair nicely fitting pants, and this is what they look like:

 

 

 

 

 

For myself, I am pretty satisfied. Nevertheless I would like to hear some opinions.

 

What do you guys think about the fit?

Cuebert fit looks good to me my man.
post #21865 of 24665

Cuebert, the whisker wrinkles in the front suggest the pants are too tight in this area and are not hanging properly.  I would add a little fabric here.

I was wondering what causes those wrinkles, but couldn't quite point it out due to a lack of experience.

 

How exactly would you solve this problem? I guess it's more a problem of the height around the crotch area rather than the overall width?

 

Thanks in advance.

Pants look good. I think they'd look even better if you widen out the leg a bit, top to bottom, but otherwise icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thanks for the tip, appreciate you help :nodding:

 

Top to bottom meaning that I should give it a slightly more drastic transition between the wider thigh and the slimmer calf?
