The Dugdale light grey twill flannel is definitely business appropriate and wearable fall through spring in a temperate climate.

I hope Luxire does not branch out into socks and underwear. I fear that customer service relating to its core business will suffer as a result of such expansion.

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!

Good on them. More than anything, I'd love to know how it came to pass. I'm having trouble mentally processing it ha.

Funnily enough I was watching reruns of Deadwood the other night and noticed that the shirt collar on one of the characters (Cy Tolliver) when worn open almost extended onto his back. It was a traditional "wing" collar shirt, like what we now associate with black tie. I'm sure Luxire's example was just an honest mistake, but it looked close enough for me to draw a comparison.

For sure. Definitely was not taking it as incompetence or anything of the sort on Luxire's part. Sometimes, for better or worse, shit happens...that they immediately offered to rectify the matter and remake the shirt tells me all I need to know about their customer service :slayer:

This is my first Luxire shirt and am interested in getting comments on the fit. Is there anything that looks off?

Looks pretty good for a first shirt. I'd suggest narrowing the yoke by about 0.75-1". Are you planning to wear the shirt tucked in? If so pictures of it tucked in would help. I'd lengthen it a good 1.5-2" or it won't stay tucked in. If you lengthen it, you may need to widen the hip measurement as well. In addition you may need to reduce the back waist a bit (or add darts) if you're going to wear it tucked in.

We can try and get it overdyed. Should work. If it does not, we will cancel and refund your order.

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

 

They are not shiny at all.

 

The first one is very chino like, looks like a standard cotton twill.  Made a trench for someone I know in the navy and she really enjoyed wearing it.

 

The tan has a slight wrinkly texture, which adds some subtle character to the fabric.

 

Both are very good fabrics.

Exactly. I do not buy Luxire for quality, if buy Luxire for good quality at a great price.

For those that order their trousers with a military hem what is the usual difference between front and back inseam? In my head 1 inch would be the absolute max and .5 inch being the norm.

That sounds about right.  I've been told by more than one tailor that 5/8 inch used to be standard.   Those who wear shoes with very high insteps might find 0.5 to be not quite enough.  And to some extent it matters how much break, if any, you want.

 

Cheers,

Is it possible to include the socks in an outstanding order so that shipping is free?

Yes, certainly. Do place your order, add note to combine with your previous order and send us an email.

 

We will refund the additional shipping you may be billed.

 

Can be done for socks/accessories only.
