Those pants look good. That's the normal front pleat they do or do you ask for something special to get it that way?

Here are the pics of my shirt, going to wash it today and iron it later, that's why it's all full of wrinkles and I just took the pics did not wear it like that.
For my next order I will shorten the chest, I asked for 23.5" will lower it to 23" and the waist from 19" to 18.5". I asked for 19.5" shoulder seam to shoulder seam. I'm glad that I can extend my arms without feeling that the fabric is going to cut through my lats. The second pic is Barba Napoli shirt, it has 19" from shoulder to shoulder and 22" in the chest... and well it's tight as you can notice. What I did is I measured that Barba Napoli and took what I like from it, sleeve lenght, waist measurement and the collar. Then I have another shirt (I don't pics of that one) and took the chest from it, so I kinda mixed the two shirts.Luxire Shirt (Click to show)
Fit looks pretty solid on this but one thing is catching my eye in particular, the wrinkling right below the shoulder seam. Does anyone have ideas about what's causing the rippling? It looks to be emanating from the armhole. The exact same things happens on all my shirts, and I've been trying to figure out how to fix it over a number of orders but so far have been unable. I've tried increasing the armhole and sleeve width (at Luxire's urging) but it hasn't fixed the problem yet.
Just got an email from Theresa confirming my order from yesterday. She said the average time for new shirts is at roughly 2 weeks right now. Not quite the 5 day turnaround like I've read about in the past, but 2 weeks is still pretty fast. My old Modern Tailor shirts used to take about a month to get, so this is definitely an upgrade for me. I'm sure I'll be even more impressed when I compare the quality of my Luxire shirt to my old MT's.
Nice. Just ordered the same sky blue summer chambray. NOBD collar, my cuff style. I also ordered the blue bengal stripes. So in about a month I should have a delivery of 7 shirts. Hopefully fitting right. Combined with my 6 Luxire shirts I currently have, I've got a well-rounded business wardrobe. Then I can move on to polos, pants and linen.
BG - I like the fit of the Luxire shirt more than the Barbara shirt. It can be slimmed some more but doesn't look bad.
I will comment on the fabrics alone as I think the items need several washes and wears before I can conclude on the fit.
The Classic Blue Oxford is tough as steel. It is definitely the sturdiest fabric I have ever had a shirt made of. Even compared to the other Classic Oxford fabrics Luxire offers. I imagine the vintage US made OCBDs might have carried this exact shade of (darker) blue. The name is therefore very suitable.
The Sky Blue Oxford does feel noticeably softer against the skin. It still comes of very high quality and durable, just like the other Classic Oxfords Luxire offers. A little more vain I would call it the Italian counterpart to the Classic Blue Oxford. Perfect for sunny yet not super hot days in tuscany and at the mediterranean. My favorite!
The Grey Knitted Pique too feels fantastic against the skin. The shade of grey is a little darker than what I had imagined from the pictures, yet very nice. The heathering is noticeable yet very muted. Recommended!
The Cream Twill Chino is my biggest "disappointment". Not because I think it is low quality but because of two features I imagined to be different. Firstly the fabric comes of very plain. I have pairs of both Incotex and Epaulet Rivet chinos which both have more texture to them, a feature I prefer. Secondly "Cream" is not a light shade of tan but almost white and, which is the critical aspect, see-through! When worn you can both see the lining of the pockets as well as your underwear. I fear this chino is unwearable for myself Careful!
To close things off I would like to express another time that the worksmanship and dedication to details of the Luxire tailors is outstanding.
Little pieces of fabric are attached to the inside of the collar of BD shirts to support the shirts fabric against being damaged while doing up the buttons of the collar.
Not a single loose thread or flawed seam could be found on the entire order.
I love how the "open end" of the fabric at the inside of the placket is sutured (?) so it won't unravel and how the placket is hold in place. I have not had a single shirt, neither RTW nor MTM, which did not start to unravel and/or to have a twisted placket because there were too little or too poorly executed buttonholes to hold the placket in place.
It is surely noticed and highly appreciated!
Don't get too jealous. All the shirts are going back. I sent in 3 for remakes, one being the first I ever ordered that's unwearable, and ordered 2 more for a total of 5 shirts. They're all replicated like the first unwearable shirt. Strange. I guess that's the gamble with big orders.
It's fabric 85860, might not be on the site. 100% cotton. They fit great. Pics later.
Can you give us the name of the fabric?
