post #3931 of 14624
I haven't seen any tuxedo shirts in this thread so here are a few photos of mine. It's fuller fitting than most would people here would normally choose but I needed to wear it for dancing so I wanted something with a little more room to move in. It was beautifully made and was a perfect replication of the shirt I submitted. I am more than pleased with the results, and the tailor I used for my suit (who does true bespoke work) was impressed and asked for Luxire's info. My only complaint was that the stud holes were a little bit too small so I couldn't properly fix the studs in place. The inner holes were not large enough for the studs to get into and lock.






Luxire, feel free to use any of these if you'd like, I'd be happy to get a little discount on my next order

Does it still takes 4-5 weeks to make a pair of pants?

Wow! Did we make this? It seems we did.

 

Thank you D. Am sure we will use these photos and send you an email soon. Would have asked for the order number, but the monogram works :)

Almost everything is currently taking 2-3 weeks, shirts, pants, jackets, suits. No item is getting delayed, only some orders are for different reasons.

It's the lustrous fine white, the fabric Luxire recommends for black tie. It wears very cool and comfortable, though I can't say it's the best fabric in my inventory. I'd strongly recommmend it for that money

I've also got a tux shirt from Luxire, also in Lustrous Fine White. Very similar to yours, it appears. I also have a problem with my studs, though in my case I think it's because the pique is so thick--luxury problem for sure. But yeah, it definitely requires a little bit of muscle to get the studs in there for me.

Agree re: the fabric. Not the best, but perfectly fine for a tuxedo shirt, and fairly priced.

I am being really stupid right now, and I am not that good at pants anatomy. What is rear pocket and how does it looks like? I tried googling it, but many types of back pockets showed up.

What? What is rear pocket? The pocket in the back of your pants, where there's usually two?

 

Can you be more precise?

Luxire,

 

Can I just address something I've noticed regarding side adjusters? The side adjusters you use have two sliding bits of metal. Citing two examples I've seen of Luxire trousers with side adjusters, both appear to have the adjusters attached with both sliding bits free:

 

 

 

However, pulling any comparable example from Google Images, all are attached with only one sliding bit free, with the other wrapped within the front strap (the strap the whole metal piece is attached to):

 

 

 

My question: is this something you do deliberately? Seems to me the latter is the more logical approach as, among other things, it provides more symmetry. Are there benefits to your approach I'm missing? Or should I stop over-analysing?

All my MTM suit pants (not from Luxire) have two pieces of metal. You can always request the one piece and im sure they will be able to do it for you.

I think I'm going to give Luxire a shot.  Planning to send one of my custom shirts in for measurements.  Any suggested white fabrics I should consider?  Considering its my first shot with Luxire I don't want to break the bank, but would still like something decent.

It can be done either way. In our approach, the metal is subdued without compromising function.
