Not sure that's a small discount over time. 

 

But they can have pictures of my shirts any time.

It has been so much talking about regular collars, but no OCBDs :( How is Luxire's regular button down collar, are you satisfied?

 

Which OCBD collar looks best? I'm interesting in ordering an OCBD, but I am not sure about which collar I should pick. 

 

Do you have an awesome OCBD collar, NOBD?

post #3768 of 9638
NOBD doesn't like button down collars.

I think the Luxire standard unlined button down collar is very nice. I get it on all my OCBDs.
post #3769 of 9638
No, I don't really like BD... I do like OC. : )

You can use the option Search This Thread and search for "button-down" (or something like that). I think there are some people who have been working on nice button-down collars.

Edit: Louis was quicker.

I think you got the measurements absolutely perfect, those shirts look nice!

Hahaha, there seems to be a lot of Betelgeuse/Beatlegeuse confusion around here.

atoms - the shirt looks fantastic, thanks so much for the pics. I agree, I think it may be a little too casual for my office here. Not that anyone else in my office is particularly well-dressed, but I at least like to hold myself to a standard of wearing more formal-ish clothing smile.gif

Cream Twill Chino

But someone have complained that it's somewhat transparent, so you will see the inside pockets...

What else?

 

"That's just a flashlight."

 

I decided long ago, if I'm getting cream/white pants, they're going to be half lined in the front. 

 

No pay, no play.

How is this not clear?

Waist: 



Half Hip:



You're not going all the way around, that would be full hip and full waist.

Sorry for being rude but there's SO MANY QUESTIONS lately that could be looked up or sent directly to Luxire.

No problem.
I sent them to Luxire, but wasnt sure how busy they were.
Two measurements were the same for me, so I was wondering, if I did a mistake somewhere.

You might note the pants are positioned differently in both pictures. In the first, the entire waistband is laid flat and straight, and in the second the pants are laying a bit more naturally. I'm not an expert pants-measurer, but if I had to guess I'd say to measure across the hips lay the pants in such a way that the fabric across the hips does not bunch in front or back (nor does it pull - so button/zip the pants).

I've got a pair of the cream twill chino and I have too experienced the problem with transperancy.
Actually I can't believe emptym's pants are made from the same fabric as mine.
First of all his pants are noticeable cream/stone in color, mine are off-white at most.
Secondly the fabric of his pants seems to be heavier and thus draping more nicely.
Lastly his pants are obviously not see-through, mine are, both under artificial as well as under natural light.

BD collar

post #3777 of 9638
NOBD: what collar do you use on your Oxford shirts?

And what's the difference between NOBD collar 1 and 2?
post #3778 of 9638
heyo, some fit advice.

this is my latest shirt.

I had a lot of issues with my original shirts with extra fabric in the back, and my original solution was to really take in the waist/shirt bottom (which is why it looks so slim). with this shirt I tried darting, which worked really well, and for the next shirt I'll add some width to the shirt opening and waist.

my real question is two issues:

I have some strange tightness in the chest, but, as you can see with my arms wide, I have at least 3" extra of fabric in the chest. my other issue is the collar - it gapes a little too much when unbuttoned, but I can wear a tie easily with this, so it's definitely the right collar size. what measurements should I adjust?

AppleMark

AppleMark

measurements:

Neck: 16.50 - Sleeve: 34.25 - Fit: Custom - Collar: Button Down - Cuff: 1-Button - Back: Center Pleats - Pocket: No - Placket: Yes - Custom_notes: Chest: 22.25"
Bicep: 8.8"
Bottom: 19.75"
Neck size: 16.6"
Shoulder seem to collar on front: 6.1" on each side of collar
Yoke: 18.15"
I'd like a nice collar roll. I'd also like two darts in the lower back to take in about an inch and a quarter fabric (so it doesn't billow out in the lower back). I also have sloped shoulders
post #3779 of 9638
(In my opinion) that shirt is too tight in the waist and bottom, hence why the bottom of the placket flares when untucked.

I think you've been a bit too generous on your shoulder measurements too. I'd go 17.5" - if you're always going to wear it with the top button undone, you can afford to have a smaller yoke to make the shirt sit nicely on the shoulders, rather than slipping off the edges.

Instead of darts, I prefer reducing the back measurements as compared to the front for the waist and chest. I don't like darts, especially in OCBDs.

I also think you should also reduce the bicep measurement to 8.25 or even 8.

Tightness in the chest can be caused by an armhole measurement which is too small.

You don't appear to have a very big chest, and yet your chest measurement is 22.25.

I'd increase the armhole measurement slightly, and make the chest 10.5" back, 10.75" front.
post #3780 of 9638
yea the shirt is definitely tight below the tuck in point -- I kept making the waist/hem measurement smaller and smaller to get rid of billowing, and I think that + the darting is too much. going to just stick with darting from now on.
