Not to turn this into a PC bashing session, but what are the main benefits to switching to Luxire? The only thing I can think of is being able to adjust the collar points.

It's more like.. what can't you adjust? You're limited by PC's offerings, tbh. Also, Luxire's turn around time is faster, and I've been more impressed by less expensive fabrics from Luxire than similarly priced fabrics from PC. 

 

To each his own in the end. Just my preference.

Who was it who commented on being disappointed with how their Cotton Twill Flannel shirts looked after only a couple of washes? Well I'm sad to say mine have done it too. Only 3 cold washes and it's pilling a lot. Disappointed as they felt so luxe initially.

Has anyone added a light lining to a dress shirt placket?  Would it stay a bit more crisp and less wrinkle prone or is this a bad idea?

Weird.  I've washed mine about 6 times now (hand wash setting with Woolite Dark) and have seen none of that happen to mine

IE: Decrease yoke by 0.5", but increase sleeves by 0.5" (technically 0.25" for each arm)

I would probably include both measurements - just to be sure. I recently ordered a shirt with slightly shorter sleeves and noticed the yoke was about 2cm narrower - but the end of the sleeve was in the right place. Which perplexed me.

Would like to share some good news:

 

Had the pleasure of visiting the Appenzell facilities of Alumo on Friday and we agreed to work together in bringing you the best of shirt fabrics and our masterful workmanship.

 

Alumo needs no introduction. The fabrics are truly impressive and made with extreme respect for the environment.

 

We have bought a few items that will be stocked with us. They should be available next week onwards. Among them is their famed University Striped Oxford in blue.

 

Later this year, we will also be offering their cotton-wool and cotton-cashmere options as well.

That was me. I'm happy I just bought one, because I can't really use it in public. It's still a super comfy shirt, though, so I wear it alot at home.

It's such a shame. My blue one is less worn and washed so perhaps I will try a different approach to washing this time.

I'm curious about this as well. I do know when it comes to suiting they account for the shape as well.

I feel like this would answer all my issues. I sent Luxire a custom pair of pants for remake. I am now on my fourth iteration of a Luxire pant and still having big issues in te seat where I believe my pants sent in fit great. If they did not measure the shape then that may have led to this issue. Did this question ever get answered about pant remakes?

It would be nice, if Luxire could answer this question in this thread.

I will have to break a lance for the luxire flannels it seems. I have four flannel shirts and am more than happy with all of them.  I just wore the tan brown tattersall flannel and I don't think I've noticed a change in texture. It is flannel after all.

 

 

I took a quick picture, all of these shirts have been washed numerous times, the tan one I know for a fact was washed at least 5 times. I wash all my shirts at 30°C in a decent Miele machine though I use generic detergent.

Glen plaid Flannel and Apple Fresco after wearing it for a day.

If there is one complaint I have to say, that sometimes the button holes on the shirts are too large for the thin MOP buttons, and they easily slide out. Though this wears off after a couple of washes, from experience.

Recently Luxire created a pair of Ghurka Trousers fo me from their Coffee Brown Cotton Tweed. As always I'm very very happy.

Coolest trousers I've seen in a long time. What is the purpose of that second button at the waist below the metal buckle (the one beside the pocket's button)?
