Does anyone have a good picture of their extra slim fit with it on? I want to know if this is like shrink wrap and better suited for going out than for business shirts.

Are you sure you're in the right thread? While Luxire appears to make (made?) some "standard" shirts (those found in their clearance section), these are custom-made shirts you're asking about, so your question doesn't make any sense in this context. If by chance you are referring to the shirts appearing in their clearance section, they have measurements which you can compare to a shirt you own, thus giving you an idea how they might fit. Also: the real Billy Mays, were he alive, would probably post in all caps.

Even in full linen suits, it can appears to be too 'causal' to the classic career sectors.

On the other hand, flannel suits are suitable for most career choice where it requires a smart look.

okay, thanks!

Haha yes. In the body measurements section it says to provide your preference.

+1.

Flannel suits are a small step down in formality from your traditional worsteds, but a solid colored flannel is not a casual suit. Solid linen on the other hand is much more on the casual end.

I see. It never occurred to me to do anything other than provide my own measurements. I bet if you email them they can give you the measurements for the various fits. It might even be helpful for this to be available on their website for those who are providing their own measurements to have something to compare to.

Just received my first order of a couple of button-down collar shirts, one in linen and one in an oxford cloth. The measurements I provided were from a bespoke shirt. The order took a little while longer than expected to be made up, because a fabric was out of stock. Every other part of the order process was smooth & streamlined.

 

First impressions:

- excellent quality. Not just for the price, but actually really well-made regardless of price. Accurate stitching, no off seams, everything attached strongly, etc, etc.

- all measurements & details done exactly as requested, first time.

- very nice shape/roll to the collar. I'm not a roll fetishist, unlike some, but even I can see when it's done well.

- will definitely be ordering more.

 

I made a slight error on the collar band height I wrote down on the order (0.25" too high, so not a big issue and the slightly higher band height looks nice anyway) that I'll correct in future. Once I check for any shrinkage after first wash, I'll be ordering many more shirts. First I'm going to add all the remaining buttondown collar shirts I need, and tag onto that order one regular business shirt in order to get its collar shape right. Once that's sorted, I'll be able to order the business shirts I need to replace my existing, aging & somewhat fraying set.

 

Good job Luxire.

I've been wondering: why do you get so many suiting fabrics when suiting isn't (at least not currently) your primary area of specialty? Personally, I'd love to see more separates fabrics—heavy flannels, cavalry twills, corduroys, moleskins, cotton twills. People ordering full suits must be your lowest demand, but going through your fabrics (in the 'Pants' section) you have a lot of worsteds and patterns that no-one will want as odd trousers. Not that I'm complaining. :)

What is the weight of these fabrics?

These can be ordered as suits too.

The 95% wool, 5% Cashmere are flannels and better than most flannels one can buy. The price at $250 is an excellent bargain for the quality.

 

For other items too, we are adding more choices gradually.

Thank you Holdfast. I must say that you were kind and forgiving given the delay and the last moment intimation about the fabric.

 

Am glad the shirts were liked.

Luxire, any ETA on those flannels you were ordering for the Fall/Winter?

Luxire, do you still intend to make suits or has that been put on hold?
