Yeah get shorter cuffs, like 2.5".
post #2687 of 11569
2.5"?! More like 1" max IMO. Remember that sleeves may shrink a bit after washing them a couple of times.

2.5 - WTF? He'll look like this:

Op should definitely measure, wash, and remeasure to account for shrinkage and then communicate that for future orders (as different fabrics may have different pre-shrunk characteristics) .

I should note that I'm a nut about my sleeves being long enough. If I have to err, I'd rather then be a bit too long than a bit too short. I've tossed great shirts that I loved because sleeves were .25 too short and it just bugs me.

Thanks. Has anybody here had success in getting different shoulder slopes and stances with Luxire? I didn't see this in their online options. With shirts it's good to have the options. With suits, blazers, and coats, it's an absolute must if your shoulder is not "typical".

I think the problem with those sleeves is width and cuff size, not length. I'd reduce the width and cuff measurements by half an inch each and see what happens. But I also tend to err on the side of longer sleeves.

Fit in the stomach, waist, and chest looks great. I can't quite tell where the shoulder seam is sitting in that picture - it's probably good but possible you could reduce the yoke by a quarter or half inch.

That collar is great.

Sorry, was not clear. Shorten sleeve lengths by 1", get shorter cuff height next time (probably 2.5') Can't tell for sure, but current cuffs look to be 3" in height.

The sleeves don't look that long to me - especially in the pic with the jacket. There's not an excessive amount of shirt cuff showing past the jacket sleeves. If you shortened the shirt sleeves by even 1 inch, your jacket sleeves will be longer than your shirt sleeves.

Like others have said, I think it had not to do with the width of the sleeves and cuff.

I measured my best fitting shirt and tried to change the measurements where needed. As was to be expected the fit is still off, which is not Luxire's fault but entirely due to bad measuring and wrong fitting decisions on my side.

I sent Luxire some pix. Theresa advised me on some fitting improvements and I have already ordered a second shirt. Will go from there and plan to replace all my ill fitting shirts in due time.

I would like to hear some opinions on the custom made collar:

I ordered the Luxire Semi-spread with soft fusing and light lining. Additionally I asked for a collar band in the Satriano Cinque design as seen on this pic:




The pic is from Permanent Style from this review where you also find an explanation.

Here are some fit pics where you can see the result. I think it looks good but would love to hear your opinions:







Thank you.

The collar looks fantastic! If you don't mind sharing: what length are the points? How tall? What is your neck size? Spread and tie gap?

I don't see any examples on your website of either men's or women's trenchcoats. I think people here would be interested if you posted some pictures here on the forum.

I'll do my best to find my DSLR and get some better pictures. Someone stuck it in storage during a move.

Thanks. Would be great with fit and shoulder shoots too. Looks like you got a similar trenchcoat that I got from Indochino (love the blue). It was steal during their fall sale last year at $179! Their current season's trenchcoats are on for $329. Wish they did women's wear. Either way, a lot better deal than what I can get from Burberry.

This is the White 'Royal Oxford' fabric, 3.5" collar points was all I specified. No sheen at all IMO if that's what some of you were worried about, this is what I wanted.






Royal oxford is supposed to have a sheen as well as a more luxurious drape and feel to them. The material definitely doesn't seem to be suited for formal wear.

Thanks for all the comments, very helpful! Most of them confirm what Luxire has recommended.

On the washing: I thought all Luxire's fabrics were pre-washed thus should not shrink much anymore? I did not take further shrinking in account.

 

On sleeve lenght: I agree with you. I find sleeve lenght fine as it is. Would I get them shorter they'd disappear totally when I bow my arms. I'd rather have them too long than too short.

That is exactly what we decided on the cuffs. I don't think the cuff is too long but they are too wide (talking circumference). Luxire recommended reduction by 0.25 inch.

I don't know the exact measurements and seeing how bad I am at measuring I'd rather quote what I ordered:

 

Same collar as in order No. 3183. The neck size 15.75 inches.

Ahh, OK; yep, now we're talking fistbump.gif

Anybody encounter this problem with their shirts? A small bump of fabric under the rear of their collar. Pretty common issue but I'm not quite sure how to remedy it for the next order.

You take photos and show it to Theresa or whomever is doing support now. She offers a suggested change, you agree or disagree, and you try again. Basically, she's pretty good at figuring out "how much" and "where at". Trust her, but do some measurements for yourself as well to confirm.
