This is the White / Grey Stripes Linen [$90], just waiting for the sun to come out so I can wear it.
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.
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?
Did you order a shirred back? Traditionally, shirred back shirts would have a shorter yoke so that the extra room is made available to the complete array of arm movements.
If it wasn't shirred then we owe you an explanation. An email would work best, mail@Luxire.com
