I tried to search the thread, but I found nothing. Thanks!
How accurate is the shipping, relative to the estimate date?
Concerning the swatches - for fast shipping, get a shirt in an order and include a bunch of swatches. I've read here that if you only order swatches, shipping is not the same quick shipping as with shirts/pants and other things. Or it may be possible, but you would probably pay a hefty premium to get the swatches to you by express shipping.
I got 13 swatches on my last order, but I have to say that Luxire take good photos of their fabrics, as they were quite close to what I got in the mail. Of course, this will not capture minor differences in texture and so on, but I feel confident that Luxires photos are good to go by for shirt orders.
Note: this was primarily for oxford shirtings and as they have a certain feel, but may vary in weight, I could've just as well ordered without swatches in hand. But given their price it's no biggie paying up for the swatches.
