Thank you VRaivio.

 

We can make them fused too, not sure how good it would look.

 

There is one shirt in the works, let's see how it turns out to be.

I got lazy the other day and just put my pink classic oxford in the dryer and the sleeves and length shrank quite a bit. Sleeves barely reach my wrist now. Back to hang drying it is...

I've put all my Luxire shirts in the dryer repeatedly and haven't noticed any shrinkage.

I'm really interested in seeing how that turns out. Is that one in the works going to have fusing? I guess if it doesn't , then non-fused with either button down or collar stays would mitigate that.

Anyone know if their chinos shrink when you wash them?

^Though the fabrics are pre-washed, I do feel both of my chinos have shrunk after washing them once. The navy and copper fabrics are stiff, though, they will not stretch at all. Best leave some space in the groin for comfort.

Did you dry them as well? I've washed and hang-dried my shirts and they haven't changed at all.

That's the key. For the clothes that I do wash (jeans, casual shirts, etc.), I never, ever put them in the dryer. I only wash in cold water. Again...Never Put In The Dryer.

Was wondering when the other denim's are going to be added to the website and become available for order?  If they're already there, I can't find them through the normal menu options.

 

I'd like to know if Luxire could do a denim shirt jacket with a flannel lining? Examples of this can be seen at http://taylorstitch.com/collections/jackets/products/flannel-lined-project-jacket

They can do anything, but I IMO prefer to keep it simple stupid.

I always put my shirts in the drier once to get rid of any shrinkage. I've found that they'll still shrink if I hang dry, just more slowly.

 

Anyway, I did get a little shrinkage on both the shirts I ordered. I measured before and after, and it was smaller by about 0.5" in the sleeve and 0.25" smaller in the yoke, collar, and chest. This is a little less than what I've experienced in the past from other MTM fabrics.

 

The fabric on the Classic Blue Oxford is nice and thick; I'm able to wear it without an undershirt. I haven't been able to do this with higher priced shirts from Modern Tailor and CottonWork.

 

Will post some fit pics a little later to request feedback.

Just awaiting delivery of the selvedge denims, will then add all of those together to offer a good selection of denim options.

 

The flannel lined shirt-jacket can be done. We do have a good selection of cotton-flannels to choose from.
