I'm waiting for them to add spandex to swatch book. Should look even better in the magazines...

I'm getting ready to submit another order, and I'm wondering what specification would most closely approximate the collar on an Isaia shirt. It think, though I'm not sure, that it's fused and you can actually see the interlining above the pouch for the stay. But it also is soft in a way to create a very nice curve. Maybe the softest level of fused? Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also, any thoughts on the differences between the UCLA Royal Oxford http://luxire.com/products/ucla-blue-royal-oxford and the Perfect Monday http://luxire.com/products/blue-royal-oxford ? The stats look the same, so it's a little hard to tell what differentiates them. I'm thinking of trying to do something similar to the Panta blue button down.

I like my shoulder seams to sit right on the tips of my collarbone, but that might not be for everyone.

I have a really big back for my frame, and I find that if I have a smaller shoulder it pulls when I move my arms.

So impressed with my firsts, I'm going in for seconds. Hopefully the pale blue poplin works out - looking for some staples.

I saw this and I almost thought I wrote it. The other Beatlegeuse will be placing his first order next week smile.gif I dropped a shirt off with my tailor to get the sides taken in just a bit (MTO from Epaulet), and when I pick that up next week I'll be using it as my template for my first Luxire shirt.

Haha! Sometimes this happens to me, I saw a post of yours and thru my mind goes: "Did I already posted in this thread?" Hahaha.

The collar is completely attached by hand. The sleeve attachment, and yoke are hand finished. The gusset is added by hand or the side seams are reinforced by hand. The buttons are attached and shanked by hand. Buttonholes are hand-made. The cost is an additional $100 for the service. 

Add this product to the cart along with your shirt to order.

 

On all our shirts, the buttons are shanked by hand after they are machine-attached.

Am I crazy or did the warzone oxford price go up by $20? What's that about?

No, you're not. The warzone white is $10 more than the warzone plus white??? I noticed a couple of other oxfords have jumped up in price too. The pricing of the shirts has always seemed a bit random to me to be honest.

 

Luxire care to comment on the pricing incrases in the oxfords?

For as good as a shirt that they make and the prices they offer with the work they get, I don't think I've seen any other company on this forum get interrogated so much by the users. People sign on as a new user specifically to write a negative review. Wonder how many make accounts to write positive reviews.

"Care to comment.." please. Do they have to? Is it now a bad price?

They're doing a good job defending themselves as far as I can tell. Can't wait to get my 5 shirts next week.
