It's the same size as my 2 previous white shirts. I haven't measured it yet but I'm pretty sure it's exactly the same. There's navy stripe on my right hand side of the collar there, maybe it's just an ilusion. In my opinion you should be able to put a finger inside your collar while it's buttoned up to the top. THe other thing is that I sit all day in the office and find it more comfortable when the collar isn't very thight. Thanks for the comment

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

 

Pants also look nice.

Yes, Xtra. THank you. I have already slimmed those 2 shirts compared to the previous order. Looks like I may need to slim it a bit more. I wanted to be carefull in slimming ;). Good spot!

Again, I am before measurments. Update: I increased the yoke a bit. These lines of fabric at the back of the neck, just under the collar, happened to me so I thought why not increase the yoke and see if it help (see previous posts). I have forward shoulders. Maybe I was wrong..I'll discuss this with Luxire while ordering the next shirt. It might also be that when the collar isn't buttoned the shoulders go a bit down?

Well spotted Dingusberry, thanks.

ammanati, I agree with Dingusberry, I think the shoulders are too wide.
I would also have the sleeves slimmed.
Other from those two details I think the fit on you looks very well, especially the button down.

NOBD, would you mind taking a picture of the sleeve seam joining the cuffs?
I guess, just like your shirts too had the special sleeve attachment, the seams on your sleeves too are turned around before joining the cuffs?
I would love to learn about the use of this feature and was not able to explain to Theresa what I meant.
A picture would be great help.

I don't think I understand, but I can take a pic when the shirt has been washed and ironed again; maybe tomorrow. It's all wrinkled up now, because I've worn it with the sleeves rolled. (And it's time to go to bed...)

Ahh, you may be right, might be an optical illusion. I'm probably seeing the navy stripe and confusing that for an open space between your neck and the shirt collar.

Just want to give everyone an update as a lot of you are expecting shirts soon and I have had some since the beginning.

 

Over time the shirts ALL have broken in extremely well. I'm not sure what Luxire does, but over time the construction causes the shirts (especially the heavier ones) to mold to your body. They've far outlived my Proper Cloth shirts and just gotten more comfortable with time. Even the initial ones that involved me still adjusting the fit have come to look great, if a little more casual, over time.

Luxire, if we based the measurements for pants off a pair with pleats but want plain front for our order, would you use darts to allow for the necessary fullness around the hips and seat while tapering through the thigh down to the ankle opening?  I'm honestly just curious to hear if there are other ways to achieve this.  Thanks!

Darts can be added. For us, with only the measurements, it is difficult to know whether the flow from waist to hips is desired one way or the other.  It is thus best to discuss them over email, decide and then add the same to the notes.

I think all of them are good. Cotton pants tend to wear cooler after a few washes.

Great gingham NOBD; the same fabric has now become my favourite summer shirt by far! Actually wearing it today (in winter....reckless) and its so friggin soft!
Wear it hard and I promise you the fabric will just get better! Also my initial oxford shirt has just finally gotten that washed look (wrinkly plackets, stubby fabric) hope it doesn't die too soon as this is my favourite phase of an Oxford!

Thx, TehBunny. Sounds good.

I've got a question regarding the seams on a pant's leg.

I like a clean seam where the fabric is folded and sewn together on the inside of the leg, just like in this picture of Luxire. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It looks a lot more elegant to me than for example a seam like in this Epaulet Rivet Chino where two rows of stiching run along the seam: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I required to have both the outside as well as the inside seam of the leg to be executed like in the picture of Luxire.
Unluckily the chino came with a seam like in the Epaulet one at the insides of the legs.

My question: Is it even possible to have the clean seam on both the outside as well as the inside of the leg? In case, how to properly address my wish?
