Yes, unfused, soft and light lining.

Wondering what would happen when they get to NOBD 2.

It seems the discussion revolved around NO for a long time as there was consensus that BD stands for button-down.

No Ordinary Button Down?! :-)

Sky Blue Oxford and Blue Dress Stripes arrived. Standard button down and English spread collar respectively. Improved fit especially in the chest area. This oxford fabric is really amazing! I love it. Photos taken shortly after I have taken them out of the box. 

 

Pants photos in the next post.

This is Khaki Heavy Twill fabric. I wanted something thicker than all chinos fabric in order to maintain the 'shape' after ironing. They're straight from the box so you can check the colour and details for now. This is my second pair from Luxire. I have to say I am more amazed this time. Fit is excellent! I feel great wearing them. I've taken some photos of the fit - see the next post.

I am open for discussion about the fit, both pants and shirts. Yes I have pleats, no I don't have cuffs. I have quite short legs so I am always affraid of 'making' them even shorter. I need high rise pants and straight lines. Please comment.

@ammanati: I'm going to say "Fuaaark" those trousers look good. I'm think I'm going to place my order in the next few days, but I still need how to get the measurements righr, mjester has helped me a lot, giving me some tips on how to avoid the pocket flare, but I need my tailor to bring the trouser that fit me "well" so I can take the measurements and modify them.

Damn. I'm mad jealous.

 

Hopefully my next pair fits me well. Tired of my weird lower body.

 

eta: Yeah I still say cuffs with pleats and cuffs without pleats are OK. But pleats without cuffs is weird. Still looks great.

Quick Question for Luxire or anyone that knows about it. What's the best chino fabric for summer? 

post #3357 of 11693
ammanati - the neck in the striped shirt looks a tad big to my eye... I can see a bit of space between the shirt collar and your neck. But I generally like my collars to fit pretty snug, especially on a shirt that I button all the way up and wear with a tie. Personal preference, you may like your collars a bit looser.

Here's my shirt out of the box, excuse the wrinkles. I feel that it's a bit too full in the body but curious to here what you guys think.

2 good options have been with us for months now but missed adding them. Tomorrow positively.

 

Excellent Luxire, looking forward to that. :)

 

ammanati: I would slim down the sleeves quite a bit on both shirts, otherwise they look quite good.

 

Pants also look nice.

Is it just me, or are the shoulders too wide? I am not sure, just asking.
