It's made-to-measure. They can go as slim as you want.

I have to say that I am blown away at the quality, speed, and service at this price point. I wanted a casual OCBD so I coped the measurements off an Epaulet chambray BD shirt. I even copied the collar measurements and linked them to a photo of what I wanted (since the Epaulet BD collars are amazing). They said they could replicate it and suggested that the regular (as opposed to summer) oxford fabric would be better, to which I agreed.
The measurements of the shirt and collar are absolutely spot-on. The only issue is the button placement on the collar, which is a little too low to get the Epaulet "high stance" effect. This is my own fault for not specifying though, and I'll just have someone move the buttons for me when I get a chance and specify the placement more precisely on my next order.
The shirt is very well made...probably as nice or nicer than MyTailor.com (I will withhold final judgment here until I have some experience with how they do proper dress shirt collars). The MOP buttons are certainly much nicer, and they are sewn very well. The stitching in general is very high quality. My only quibble quality-wise is that the buttonholes are not the greatest, which is a little noticeable on the collar. I'm not a buttonhole fanatic by any means and rarely pay attention to them, but these struck me as looking slightly messy.
Overall Luxire seems almost too good to be true. I will be ordering many more shirts in the near future.

 

Thank you prozach1576. We are glad that you like the shirt. Will review the way we do button-holes on oxfords.

Many of our fabrics have excellent wrinkle performance. We have still not marked those accordingly on the website though. some of them are listed below.

 

For the longer term, we are taking a different approach to wrinkle-free. Currently working with a finishing house to create a green process for treating the shirts after they are made. Once we have the tests completed, we will be able to offer any fabric in normal and wrinkle-free finishes.

We are still a couple of months away from the launch though.

 

In the interim, these wold look perfect after a light iron and would be wearable straight out of the dryer.

Feedback we received from a customer:

Feel free to use this as positive feedback.

I just received my custom shirt. I am so totally impressed with the quality, fabric and precise specifications. To add to this, your shipping and delivery status is beyond reproach. Your business fulfills all levels of customer service. In a world where service and quality product have slipped so far below the bare minimum of "satisfactory", your company has set the bar that all other companies should aspire. End to end, you rate 10 out of 10.

Thank you and I will be back!

Are there any fit comparisons to your standard sizes? Like BB for example?

Yes, our regular fit is similar in size to BB regular, our slim to their slim and our SuperSlim to their SuperSlim

 

We do have a size chart here http://custom.luxire.com/pages/how-to-measure , under standard sizes.

Just came across the image below in the LondonLounge forum. In the good old days, the shirt body and the sleeves were made separately. Then they were attached together, keeping the fit in mind. Now a days, sleeve seams and body seams are stitched in one go.

The video below shows how about 99.99999% modern shirts are made.

 

Luxire Custom shirts are made the traditional way. As in the images of the blue shirt, the sleeve seam and body seam are not aligned. The reason is that they are made separate and then attached together.

The biggest advantage of this is that it does not pull out the tucked shirt when the arm is raised. It also eliminates the diagonal creases at the top of the sleeve, which is omnipresent in almost all shirts we see.

 

It takes hours to make the seams in this manner, while the modern way takes less than a minute. No wonder this technique is used in less than 1 in a million shirts!

 

 

 

The body seam and sleeve seam end up at separate points under the arm. Also look at the detailed finishing, standard on all Luxire Custom Shirts.

 

 

Clean finish.

 

 

An under-construction shirt, with one sleeve attached and another ready for attachment....and the video of its attachment.

Which particular shirt is this on your site? The stripes seem wider than pencil stripes, which I am looking for. Will be ordering shortly.

Thanks,
