post #22516 of 24675

On the topic of collars, could anyone advise me on what kind of lining and fusing to specify? 

 

I have a sky blue oxford with an unlined, unfused Mercer style collar, which is a little too wrinkly and floppy. I then ordered a warzone plus white oxford and asked them to replicate the same collar but make it "slightly more lined/fused", but that resulted in a cardboard-stiff collar, perhaps because the warzone plus fabric is thicker to begin with than the sky blue fabric.

 

I'm planning on getting a classic red oxford next, which I presume is similar in thickness to the sky blue oxford. What should I specify to get a collar that is not too beefy, but stands up and resists wrinkling? Thanks!

Broke and Bespoke collar.

Thanks for the tip. I actually tried that on my very first trial shirt and it was pretty floppy, plus the collar was much too large for my head. Any other ideas though?

You can ask Luxire to scale the collar down. My first NOBD collar was a little small, so I asked them to scale it to size. Worked great.

Can anybody provide insight on their experience with ordering bags, or comment on specific options I should consider? Having never used a purse myself (!), I'm afraid that I'll miss a useful addition or leave out something that should be standard.


Do write an email. The knowledgeable and experienced ladies in our design team will be able to guide you.

Would you mind sharing pictures?

The only button down collar I use is the standard Luxire one. Just about perfect in my opinion; I do specify medium lining though (may not be necessary for oxford, most of my shirts are linen).

For polos do you measure one of your best fitting ones and stick that in the notes? I wear tyrwhitt slim polos but would like to make some modifications if ordering from luxire.

If you have a button down from @luxire they can adjust the measurements to make it a polo.

I have posted several in this thread.  You could access them most easily by looking at my pictures under my profile.  Pictures are organized by threads, and you'll find several not only of the shoes themselves, but of their making. Here's a link to several of the pictures. They are dark brown suede venetian loafers and unlined green calfskin sneakers.

I've not ever had a polo from them before but I've had a popover Buttondown that is a good size. Not sure it would be better to send in measurements from an existing polo rather than rely on them to guess from my shirt measurements with them. Hmmm.

Two orders in one week. Whose a lucky guy! 

 

I won't be so lazy this time... (Ironic disclaimer: I forgot to take pictures with them neatly folded by Luxire so excuse my awesome folding "ability". Blame my excitement.)

 

And, once again, please excuse camera phone pictures.

 

Shirt #1: White Linen 

http://custom.luxire.com/products/fine-white-linen

 

Thoughts: 

Very impressive. Nice opacity for a white linen and fantastic feel. Not itchy at all. Best part? The drape. It's heavier so it has an extremely nice flow to it.

Pictures to show fabric and collar.

 

 

 

Shirt #2: Blue Seersucker

http://custom.luxire.com/products/blue-bell-stripes-seersucker-ysc12978401sp

 

Thoughts: Also a fantastic drape. Really, really like this one. Will be able to use it casually or with blazer and tie (pretty casual work environment, YMMV).

 

 

Overall thoughts - probably two out of my 3 or 4 favorite shirts thus far. Highly recommended and price is great. Buy these for your summer wardrobe! I'm glad I did. I will probably re-order the white linen to have a second on hand.

@wigglr I love the wide spread BD on the blue stripe seersucker! I might have to try it for myself in the future!

I have not had mine lined.  The fabric has considerable heft so personally, I think lining would only detract from the comfort and add nothing to structure.  I think it would also just really cut down on the breathability.  Hopefully someone else can give you a counterpoint.
