?  I posted a picture of a one piece collar and asked if Luxire could make one.  I then did a search in the thread for one piece collars and saw that they could.  No need to ask them.  Takeaway: search then ask.

Damn. Thought your order came in and maybe you were retaking pictures.

Or am I insane and you didn't order?

On my cell. Sorry.

I ordered a shirt about a week ago. I guess a week or two more if I'm lucky.

Ah, forward shoulders. I never noticed. I requested for an adjustment for shoulder slope on my previous order, so that's fixed. Guess I have another thing to note for my next order!

Unless your shirts fit 100% perfectly, I'd recommend taking some fit pics and send to Luxire for comments. I received a couple of shirts the other day, and while they generally fit great, there were some slight excess fabric that created small folds near the shoulders. I took some photos and sent over to Luxire, and got a prompt response with detailed adjustments to make my next order perfect. 

 

The customer service, as well as the product, that Luxire is providing, is really something. Great job, guys!

Not yet, sorry. However, I don't think fit is necessarily the best measure to judge luxire on. They can only work with what they have been provided with, be it measurements or another item, and have little influence on how the piece sits on your body.

They did a great job of replicating the fit of the piece I provided them with. If you plan on doing the same, I think you can have confidence in their ability in this regard.

In my experience, fit advice from luxire has been very good and has helped shirts to improve with each new order.

I'm usually against the whole bathroom selfie thing, but this is the best I could do for today - here's my first Luxire shirt, the sky blue summer chambray. It turned out pretty close to how I wanted it. Sleeves may look slightly short in the pic, but like I said in my review a week or so ago, it's mainly due to the upper back (right below the yoke), being a little too small, so it pulls when I hang my arms down or reach forward, which makes the sleeve ride up a little bit. I requested that to be changed on my next shirt, so hopefully I'll see an improvement in that area.

looks nice.
Is this the standard-BD-collar?
post #4360 of 11659

Looks pretty good.

 

Question - 

 

There's tightness in my shirts across the upper back. Besides adding pleats, how does anyone fix this? Or do they just let it go? I know the solution would be, "... just add more room." but I don't want an absurd amount of excess fabric there. 

 

Thanks!

Yep, I just told them I wanted a nice roll, didn't get too specific with the measurements. I think these are 3.25" collar points - I'd have to look at my order again to double check the exact measurement I put in.

Unfortunately I think adding pleats or increasing the measurement are the only ways around this. My shirt has a center pleat and I still have tightness when I reach forward, so I really had no choice other than adding some more room on my next shirt.

True, pleats or increased measurements are pretty much the only way around this. The other last ditch option is make shirts with cotton/spandex (elastane) blend. Not sure if Luxire has these type of fabrics satisfied.gif

But...

 

I hate pleats.

Beatlegeuse, fantastic fit.
I would definitely not change all too much about it!
Do you like to wear your cuffs loose?
Got all my shirts so far with rather tight cuffs, maybe I should try loose ones once as well.
post #4365 of 11659

That looks very nice, Beatlegeuse!
