Yes, 16 x 16 would by 4800 x 4800 at 300 PPI.

I guess you ordered BD w/ collar roll?
post #2467 of 14583
^^
You ordered 2. I wondered if you were the one that already had one (and wrote about it on a blog)?

^
No BD for me.

Then you guessed wrong; #1738 w/ 3.25" points, unfused and lightly lined. I usually only like BD with oxford shirts.

NOBD: Nope, don't have a blog. There's a blog post about the fabric?

I'm not sure about the blog post anymore shog[1].gif. I confused you for VRaivio:

From afar is looks like plain light blue, up-close it's a different animal. It's this one on Luxire's site:

I was surprised how strong the weave is, it really does not stretch at all, and yet is open enough to let air flow freely. I'll be writing about the weave soon on my site.

Does anyone remember the initial launch with a "5 day turnaround"?

I am a big Luxire fan, as a look through this thread will show. But I myself have been waiting for a suit that I paid for on 25 March, and a quilted jacket, and a suit jacket of my own that I sent them to copy a week or so earlier (and said that I needed back ASAP!). I understand that there have been delays since this is the first full suit they have made and one of the first quilted jackets, and that there were delays sourcing good quality materials and labour, and I accept these as not representative of a regular order, but it still concerns me. I was initially told the whole thing would be with me in three weeks, if I recall correctly.

My concern is that Luxire is simply expanding too quickly, and instead of adding new products every couple of weeks, they should focus on pumping out the existing products a bit quicker, especially shirts.

I stress that my communications with Theresa have generally been fantastic, including sending me in progress shots of my suit and quilted jacket, although there has been a noticeable time lag in receiving responses lately.

Every product I have received has been of great quality, and I have no doubt that my suit will be the same. But I am worried, because at the moment the delays reported in this thread seem to be increasing rather than decreasing...

I think you've nailed the primary issue. It started with the addition of trousers. I'm not going to complain because of the extremely high quality of the trousers...seriously folks, I will not buy trousers/pants off the rack anymore. 

 

I was shocked that they had added and taken so much in about 2 or 3 monts time. They've gone from a shirtmaker to a full range bespoke clothing maker. That's quite a leap and I don't think they have competition in that regard. They need a whole new website in my opinion and the back room processes to accompany it.

Once they copy your shirt, do they let you know what your measurements are as an FYI?

We do not really save measurements, we instead save your shirt in the form of a real pattern made of thick cardboard paper, with your details written on it.

 

The idea is to save it for life and be able to provide the same exact fit shirt after shirt, year after year, if you so desire.

 

But, if you would like the measurements, we can provide that as well.

I have a long neck and a penchant for vintage-inspired point collars. My request was for 5cm back height with 10 cm point length and 8½ cm spread along with a Turnbull&Asser-like swoop from the neck to the points. Here is Luxire's interpretation of my collar request. I'm quite happy with it. Unfused, but stiff, I call this model The Ville Collar.
