Both of the BG's ordering trousers on the same day? Race to see who gets theirs first! Haha, actually you will probably get yours first. I just mailed in my trousers to copy today, so it will probably take a while before they get them and can start work on my MTM pair.

Which fabric did you get?

Nice! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Since I really don't have a trouser that fits the way I like, I went with something cheap to try out, so I went with this one. biggrin.gif

Gussets are another option to add strength to the traditionally made side seam.

I think the tack is what Mr. Kabbaz uses as well.
So far I have not had problems with the side seams on my Luxire shirts and I don't think I will have.
Also I much prefer the look of the tack over the gusset.
I have the feeling though that you want to stress that a gusset is greater support to side seams constructed the way you do it than a tack, correct?

Spearpoint: 4" points, 1.5" Band-height, unfused

Thanks for this, much appreciated.

Here is a follow-up question: when requesting a custom collar, do we need to specify the 'spread' (i.e. the distance between the points), or is point length and band-height enough?

...And finally, could you direct me to pictures of the semi-spread and the English spread (on people or dummies would be preferable to just the folded shirt)?

Many thanks

What exactly is a tack? Can someone post a picture?
Is it something like this?
post #4056 of 13293
Yes, similar. It's on all my Luxire shirts.

NO. That is a figment of your imagination.

With the same point length and band height, the collar can be made is many different ways. Thus, spread should be specified, either by name (English, Semi-spread, Italian etc) or in numbers.

 

Semi-Spread

 

English

^^ Great, thank you again! The English spread collar is actually pretty much ideal just the way it is smile.gif

If you're so against using gussets and don't like the look, why don't you just specify so? Doesn't Luxire specifically stress that customisation possibilities are endless? And oh, just because Kabbaz says so means it's gospel and is correct?

 

The way he says things makes it seem as if everything he does is correct and is the best, and everyone else's method is inferior. If you really do believe everything he says to be true because he's earned some sort of merit in your eyes as a premier shirtmaker, why not get shirts made by him instead of apparently inferior makers, whom I get the impression will never live up to your expectations?

Luxire: can you show a picture of the button down collar as well?

Received my shirt jacket from a couple of pages back today. Very pleased with the construction and fit. Will try and get a mini review up over the next couple of days. Would do it now, but my father has stolen my camera to attend a wedding tomorrow.
