post #23056 of 24691

Hi, this is my second luxire shirt. Can someone recommend me what to fix for my next order. I know I need to lengthen the sleeve. How do I get the shirt to drape cleanly from the chest to the waist. How do I fix the bunching/little poof by the waist. Do I increase the waist or decrease the front waist. Many thanks.

Is there any chance @luxire you could source this oxford cloth from Albiate? I believe it is called Paraggi stripe.

I think it looks great. Personally I wouldn't change a thing. Sleeves sure, if they don't feel right to you.

Sorry I forgot to add this photo. For some reason when I unbutton the collar button I get a horizontal pull by the 2nd button as shown in the attached photo, but when it is button up it doesn't appear. How do you fix this? I was told by the luxire people to increase my shoulder slope by 0.25" for my first shirt which I did, so idk if that matters or it had cause this issue. Also is there anyway to get reduce the fabric near the chest area as circle in the attached photo. Would reducing the back width help a little? Thanks again

I'd be interested in this answer, too. I've had a similar problem with many of my luxire shirts where there is seemingly random bunching halfway between the top of the pant and my armpit.

Did you figure out the issue? That looks seriously awful lol.

Edit: wait, are the collar points on your back?!

I agree with your thoughts on Bellroy. From what I've seen on this forum of Luxire's leatherwork, I would much rather have something made in house than something from Bellroy. Chester Mox does make a nice product though. I know quite a few people seem to be against Luxire selling goods made elsewhere, but I would still be happy with the convenience of buying accessories at the same time as my order.

What do you call the style of collar which seems to be seamlessly attached at the neck (or are they one piece to begin with?? I've seen them in some polos and I can't quite remember the name of the style.

Also, @luxire, a question on your Scheoller offering, http://custom.luxire.com/products/schoeller-fabric-light-grey-4656_282_98550_light_grey_schoeller

This one says dry cleaning only. Is this your guideline or from Schoeller? Just wondering because fabric with such active capabilities demand daily wear-and-tear and I can't imagine dry cleaning them every so often.

RE// Bellroy: Cheap quality (leather ripped, stitches came undone in the first year of use). Used sparingly while traveling so the damage is minimal when it gets lost/stolen but I would never use them in daily setting. The price speaks for itself. Nice 3 year warranty, though not sure if they still are generous with it since theyve grown in size.

We call them one-piece collar.

 

Yes, all Schoeller care guidance are from the mill directly. This Schoeller fabric is 46% wool, which is a natural microbial fiber.  Is designed to be worn round the year. If there are any spots, they can be spot-cleaned with hydrocarbon solvents, like we use white petrol.

Dry cleaning is not recommended either.

But at the same time you will need some space to be able... to move normally. Can you flex or tie your shoes in it?

Yep, those are points on the back.

Luxire responded to my email within a day, and they're remaking it for me. I asked if they needed any additional information to fix the collar, but they seemed confident that it'd be an easy fix. I guess we'll see!

yeah pretty seamlessly. I think it may be too taper from the chest to the waist, so adding a litle to the waist would maybe allow it to drape more cleanly from chest to waist?

Are these schoeller performance chinos shiny? Seems they'd make perfect travel khakis.

Also, aside from color, any comments on the differences in those 2 fabrics?

Can anyone recommend a good worsted gray wool flannel that isn't the two cheap options? Is the vbc flannel a good business appropriate trouser?
