Thanks. Very casual and wrinkles like linen sound fine, since I was looking for summer casual. Curious what it will feel like. Does extremely lightweight also mean it's extremely see-through?

Let me try a shorter version for those who think TL;DR on my previous long posts.

My message to Luxire in a nutshell:
Quote:
Is this something that is fixable if I can send this shirt back to you?

My interpretation of how Luxire replied:
Quote:
Well, you asked for XYZ, so you got what you asked for.
Thanks for contacting us!

My expectation of what die-hard Luxire fans here will reply with:
Quote:
Ah, of course! You didn't TELL them to fix your shirt, you ASKED them! I completely agree with them and you're a moron. Plus, they didn't say 'no', so you're being an over-sensitive prick!!

Either way, thanks for listening, guys. I just needed to get it off my chest. Cheers!

The top button just popped clean off my blue oxford shirt, not impressed. Worn & washed 3 times max.

OMG! Thats a travesty of themselves. Thankfully, have not suffered anything like this.

 

The fabric looks beautiful. Which one is it?

Lightweight as in summery and breathes well, or lightweight as in thin and cheap-feeling? Wrinkling is OK in my book, especially for more casual summer shirts.

Looking for a couple of summer shirts, and this fabric was near the top of my list.

I have a shirt in what I believe is the sky blue summer chambray (it was just "Sky Blue Summer" when I ordered it last August/September but it was the same price and looks like the same fabric). I would say it's my least favorite of the fabrics I have from Luxire, more thin and cheap-feeling than summery. It is extremely difficult to iron, especially in the sleeves. Not recommended, sadly.

What I really want is a basic 100/2 or 120/2 very light blue end-on-end that I can use for workhorse year-round shirts. The current blue end-on-end offerings are too dark for this. I have a shirt from MyTailor in their basic two-ply superfine collection in "light sky" end-on-end (fabric 68176 on their site) that is perfect; I just want it in Luxire quality and customization.

Oh oh. Too late, already ordered a shirt with that fabric.

The pale blue poplins almost fit the bill, but I simply do not like plain-weave poplin as much as end-on-end.

Fully agree. Thinking about trying the sky blue twill, but it looks much more darker in color than sky blue oxford for example.

Yeah it's a bit disappointing, nothing that the tailor can't fix though.

 

The fabric is great - it's sky blue oxford.

Or perhaps the new blue summer oxford? http://luxire.com/collections/new/products/classic-blue-summer-oxford Considering myself instead of the Sky Chambray being discussed.

Oxford, despite *looking* perfect for summer, wears very warm IMO, so I'm a bit reluctant to give that a try.

Wonder what's different about the "summer" oxford.
