i believe you can ask them to prewash for you to mitigate any potential shrinkage

What would the group recommend in terms of dealing with shrinkage. Will Luxire provide accurate shrinkage estimates for each fabric before ordering so that I might adjust measurements as necessary?

Thanks

One of the key reasons I buy fewer shirts from Luxire than pants - I've experienced different rates of shrinkage depending on fabric.

I think they supposedly pre-wash the fabric to limit shrinkage, but I've treated my shirts no different from OTR and other manufacturers yet it seems to be more of a problem.

Hi what is the order # for the collar and the specification (fused, non fused, etc). I've been trying to find someone who replicated the kamakura button down collar. Thanks

 

Order is #15753, non fused. Below is what I sent Luxire. Hope that helps.

Hi,

I am about to order my second shirt from Luxire - could someone recommend a business-appropriate shirt fabric that is medium blue (i.e. darker than “light” or “sky blue”) in color. Might be either solid or micro-pattern (hairline, herringbone) and preferably priced under $100.

 

To get the idea what shade of blue I am looking for, I attached the picture with the swatches I received from Luxire (some popular fabrics like Sky Blue Oxford or Sky Blue Summer Chambray) along with one of my RTW shirts, which I consider “medium blue”. Thanks in advance for any help :-)

If you send a pair of trousers to Luxire to be replicated, do they just use these to take their standard measurements or are they able to replicate the pattern more precisely (e.g. The '3D' elements like balance, stride shape, fork pattern, etc)?

From my own experience it seems that they do replicate the shape of the trousers. My replicated trousers fit exactly like the pair I sent in.

Dugdale brown moleskin is very nice, but has a college professor vibe to it.
Dugdale flannel is very nice too, but I've only seen it in grey. I guess brown is pretty much the same only different. smile.gif
The moleskin is great for fall/winter - will pair well with knits and tweed.
Edit: I realized my moleskins are dark green, not brown. Still very nice and warm though.

The dugdale moleskin fabrics are aa bit to heavy.
