Watching the pictures as Luxire refines its jacket making skills, I've seen huge strides in their jackets, the lapel roll, etc.  I have still yet to see, however, a real natural shoulder.  All the pictures have that same roped shoulder as the picture above.  When Luxire masters a natural shoulder, this new MTM service will explode.

Royal oxford is what you want @DonRaphael

 

Some say it isn't as formal as twill, but I think that's nonsense. It's a very fine fabric with a great weave that gives it a visual interest and a touch of formality due to the sheen. It's the first shirting fabric I thought of immediately after I read your description.

I've NEVER at all understood the idea that Royal Ox lacks formality...to me, it's the most formal fabric out there, outside of exclusively formal weaves. The texture is (to me at least) reminiscent of a pique bib on a tuxedo shirt...it's probably my favorite 4 season shirt.

I'm a big fan of Royal Oxfords as well - soft, breathable, relatively wrinkle proof and a nice texture as mentioned.

One trick with the Luxire website is that you can often figure out the mill's name for the fabric from the URL. For example from  http://luxire.com/products/albini-plain-fine-white-albini_np_st_james_fl34766_1_310 you can tell that it's the St. James, which leads you to http://www.albinigroup.com/en/brands/thomas-mason/product-families/st-james

 

In general with white fabrics you're going to have to compromise between opacity and wearing cool. Which is more important to you? A poplin like the St James will, compared to other weaves, will generally wear cooler but be more transparent and more prone to wrinkling. Twill and royal oxford can be good choices but be aware that some of these fabrics may have a slight sheen to them, which IMO can be a good thing for a formal shirt but isn't everyone's cup of tea.

 

That's a great suggestion, thank you.The most important to me is the transparency issue, I do not, under any circumstances, want the fabric to be transparent. When you say sheen regarding royal oxford, is it obvious or is it subtle? The sheen is the reason I'm staying away from sharkskin fabrics for example (or maybe I've just seen bad examples of sharkskin in the past).

I honestly didn't have a clue it was two different fabrics, just thought 'royal' implied it was a fancier kind of oxford. I'll have a look at Luxire's royal oxford supply. Thank you very much for your input.

Well, you're the third or fourth suggesting royal oxford, so I guess that's what I'll be ordering. Just have to find a fabric on Luxire's website that has as little sheen to it as possible. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your input. As I've said above, I'll take a look at the fabrics Luxire offers along those lines.

Looks like you guys are all suggesting it. Thank you for your help!

post #23395 of 25409

I've checked the Luxire website, and these are the two white Royal Oxford fabrics that they're offering (one was suggested earlier):

1. http://luxire.com/products/lelan-cotton-royal-white-oxford-ss_rz_5396

2. http://luxire.com/products/grandi_sky_roy_b_14937_00031_fine_white_royal_oxford_200-2

 

Is the second shirt worth paying approximately $100 more for?

 

EDIT: I ordered the G&R fabric. Thank you for your help, gentlemen. I really appreciate it as the shirt is for my wedding. I'm very confident it'll look great.

Looks great. How did you decide on the measurements? From a similar garment, or did you build out from a shirt pattern (or a jacket)?

Sorry about the bad photo.

Maybe I'm missing what "soft" actually means, but that shoulder doesn't seem to be terribly built up/structured. I like the look of it for sure.
