I would slightly reduce the shoulder width, yoke and armhole.
I would drastically reduce the biceps measurement/slim the entire sleeve.
The fits looks fine in the torso.

Which fabric is the shirt?

I am comfortable sitting down, doesnt feel tight around the waist or the chest.


Overall, my impression was similar to Louis, there seems to be quite a bit of excess fabric in the biceps area.

This is the White / Grey Stripes Linen [$90], just waiting for the sun to come out so I can wear it.

I'm gonna disagree with this slightly.  I would reduce the yoke as indicated above and leave the armhole as it is.  It looks about right to me in the pictures posted.  I would also only slightly reduce the width of the sleeves throughout, if at all.  There doesn't appear to be an inordinate amount of extra fabric through the arms.   And a shirt fitting like this is much more comfortable when moving and bending your arms than the alternative IME.  On another note, I'd probably suggest ordering/buying trousers with a higher risesmile.gif

Horses for courses, I guess.
To me there is an obvious disbalance between a slim torso and wide sleeves.
That disbalance makes the shirt look off.
I prefer a slim shirt, so I suggested to have the sleeves slimmed.
Of course one could also argue to widen the torso according to the sleeves.
Spurious will know best which cut he prefers.

Sleeves don't look too bad to my eye, maybe slim the bicep area very slightly. Be careful not to slim it any further at the middle part of the sleeve though, like emptym said above, slimming sleeves too much will most likely result in a lot of busted elbows. Make sure you can bend your arms comfortably without the fabric pulling across your elbow, because if it's pulling too tightly in that area then it's probably too small of a measurement.

I disagree with "drastically" slimming the sleeves. Slim them only slightly. They look fine and a very slight slimming down will present a nice compromise of looks and comfort. Armholes are fine. Any higher and they might become uncomfortable and "cut" into you when you hold your arms forward.

Thanks guys.

Shoulders too wide
Biceps can do with a little slimming 0.25-0.5 inches off
Dart the back to cleanup the bunching

Sure but ultimately I'd be pleased with this shirt. I'd start by .25" since it looks great already.

Thanks for the input.
I've contacted Luxire to ask them which measurements I need to reduce to take out some of fabric in the biceps area.
There seems to be consensus on shoulders and the yoke.

I'm preparing thoughts for a prospective order (trousers and shirts). My question: Is there a limit to the extent to which I can customise the specifications? Ideally, I would wish to specify more or less every detail—this would not be to undermine your working style, but rather to prevent the headaches and issues of miscommunication I've previously experienced with online MTM (and to satisfy my OCD).

 

For example, with trouser pleats I notice you tend you set them with a gap approx. 0.75" below the waistband seam, in more of an Italian style. Instead, would you be willing to set pleats into the waistband with no gap between or exterior stitching, as in the picture below on the right?

 

 

 

Also, if I'm not mistaken, you tend to stitch the fly at a width of 1.5", presumably to match your shirt plackets of the same width. Instead, could I request a slightly narrower 1.375" fly (and shirt placket, for that matter)?

 

These are just two examples of customisation that come to mind. However, upon ordering, there would be many more.

 

Every aspect can be customized, no limitations or restrictions.

Practically any fabric from our collection can be chosen, prices may vary slightly based on the chosen fabric.

It seemed easiest to just give it a shot, so we'll see. I considered the English spread, but I thought it might be too wide once the height was increased.

Let me know how that worked for you! Now answering to your question, I would liked it to have more distance between collar points, if that makes sense. I posted a pic of another collar that I like a few pages ago, and has more space between collar points. smile.gif

Wow, even if it's freshly pressed, it really isn't showing any wrinkles at all for linen...

This is my first test shirt from Luxire. I took the measures from a well-fitting shirt, slimmed down the shoulders, armholes and biceps, specified shirred yoke and shoulders. When the shirt arrived, it was almost 36 °C and the Popeline fabric was sticking to the skin. Therefore I got the sensation of a overly tight shirt in the chest/shoulder-department. Since then, I was wearing it several times, and while it still feels a bit tight there, it's probably due to the yoke height. The height is about 1.5 " less than every other shirt I own. So, if I stretch your shoulders, the yoke seam is at the most unfavorable part of the shoulder line and since the seam is less yielding than the rest of the fabric, it cuts into the skin.

 

I will get rid of the shirred yoke, adjust its height accordingly, make the yoke, armholes and chest slightly wider and maybe slim down the wast a little bit.

 

My questions:

 

Will darts alone clean the back, even when the overal measures the the waist remain the same? 

 

My right shoulder is sloping about half an inch and it is also slightly wider than the left. To conceal this, would you make the right part of the yoke and the right front panel shorter and wider? Or would this throw the shirt out of balance?
