Referring to the statement that it would be shipped this week, I expected something like Thursday or Friday AT LATEST. By Saturday I still hadn't received any shipping confirmation, so I asked @Luxire what the status was - the Result: it will be shipped by next week Tuesday (I've got my fingers crossed).

It's O.K to not always ship in time, and I know this this is not always avoidable, but I think @Luxire should communicate this WITHOUT the customer always having to chase the support.

For future reference: the differences in size of tucked vs untucked shirts are explained very well here: http://propercloth.com/reference/tucked-dress-shirts-vs-untucked-casual-shirts/

I have previously bought MTM shirts from neronote with mixed results and I'd like to try Luxire to compare. How would I get started so that I get an as good fit as possible, and how do I choose a good fabric? I'm a fairly thin and tall guy, so all store bought shirts are both too wide and too short.

I've read through many pages in this thread but I still haven't figured out how you guys specify collar type, placket, buttons and things like that. Any guidance?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a cotton twill similar to https://www.neronote.com/MTF/Content/Catalog/neronote/tessuti/temporanei/PRODUCTS/fm57945_10_g.jpg that would be suitable to wear during a cold spring?

Would anyome recommend the wool rich pants vs VBC? Wool rich is 30% polyester and VBC is 100% wool. If anyone has experience with both can you tell that the wool rich are a blend?

Best is to send in an existing well fitting shirt. Order this fabric: http://custom.luxire.com/products/luxire-fit-test-trial-shirt

Start with all the standard options in the form before going custom

If it's not too much trouble, could you discuss the height of the collar band and point lengths? I have found that my shorter neck can't handle some of the taller collars that are popular in this thread.

post #22388 of 24643

Mine is usually 3.5cm in the front, 4.5cm in the back. Collar points are 9cm.

Yes, I think you have to find one that works best for you.

Thank you, that might work for me. I may try it on my next shirt.

Yeah I would be very interested in more knitwear pictures as well, the sweater looks really well made.

I am currently thinking about ordering either of the cloths myself, I am slightly leaning towards the wool rich, but that's more to test the polyester mix. This is a pretty informative post:

Wool Rich Grey Pants
- Price is great, but does the 30% polyester minimize the value of this fabric?

Minnis Fresco-Light Grey Plain - Same fabric as the photo above. I really like the color of these pants, however, according to the reviews this fabric is very thin/light. Price is $250 which is on the higher end.

Vitale Barberis Canonico - 120s 2 Ply Summer Grey - Price is $149 and the fabric is 100% wool. There are currently no reviews on the website for this fabric.

Vitale Barberis Canonico - Prunnelle 110s Light Grey Twill - Price is $149 and the fabric is 100% wool.

If price is not your concern, get the Fresco all day. But for an extra 30-40$ get the VBC over the WR.

I wear them (VBC) quite a bit in the summer, and I golf in the Wool Rich because I can wash them.

Good luck. DL-

I have Wool Rich and VBC. I would say the use case is subtly different. The Wool Rich are 'beater' trousers - good for travel, marginally more resistant to creasing, and I know if all else fails I can give them to a hotel laundry and they should come back in one piece.

The VBC wear marginally cooler, but I suspect the fabric is more delicate and they certainly require more care in cleaning. So they tend to get worn when I am working from my normal office.
post #22395 of 24643
Thanks for the input, Simon! Since the VBC wears cooler I might go for them; I will be wearing these in the summer and the office is not sufficiently cooled IMO - the women want to wear skirts and sleeveless tops, while we have to wear trousers and long-sleeved shirts. Maybe I will go for both. Which color do you have, and do you have some pictures on your blog? Is there a difference in drape?
