post #5146 of 11695

Just received my chinos and two shirts. I can finally see why people are so crazy about the NOBD #1 collar, it's really beautiful in person! I only used measurements based on an existing pair of pants but they've pretty much nailed the fit. Don't think I'd need to look for any other places for shirts/trousers anymore...

Nice, Luxire.

Luxire, those new Dugdale flannels look awesome and very attractively priced. I'll be planning to order a couple once my latest order arrives.

Wow, those flannels are awesome and exactly what everyone has been pining for. The mid-gray is definitely in my next order. Pretty impressive how responsive Luxire is to customer requests.

Pictures would be great - which fabrics did you select for your chinos and shirts?

 

I just placed an order for the Luxire selvedge in 13 oz dark indigo (already got 13 oz raw) and the red white gingham shirt. Not expecting the clothing before at least 4-5 weeks though as I know trousers take longer time to complete compared to shirts.

Indeed, Luxire really listens to their customers which is excellent. Now when they release their new and improved "Luxire 2.0" website things will be even better.

I'd really be into this too fwiw

Would love to see a pic of the light and dark navy flannel side by side.

Got the white royal oxford and sky blue dobby twill today.

First impression is that the royal oxford doesn't have the traditional diamond- like design, and seems thin, but is a very sturdy, tight fabric.

The sky blue twill is beautiful. Already one of my favorite shirts. Such a nice, soft fabric, and a subtle, light blue.

the mop buttons are very very thick.



(collar is NOBD 2)

It should be. My first order just shipped after 4 weeks. That includes time I had to send in a shirt and pants to replicate. Not bad at all.

My order was delivered today, but I wasn't home to sign for it...I'll have to sign the FedEx slip and leave it on my door tomorrow. Finally I'll get my order! Can't wait to place my next order as well

Glad you reminded me. I just electronically signed because I'm out of state. Thanks!

Same happened to me, I drove to the fed ex station to get it early

For future reference, you could always just tape a handwritten signed note to FedEx authorizing them to leave the package.  Did that today and worked like a charm!  I picked up a blue-gray royal oxford and white royal oxford, I think it is easily one of the best oxford cloths available.

 

Like my earlier post, I'm finalizing my next order for spread collars.  I looked back through the search results on fusing and lining, it seems as if a lightly fused and lined shirt collar would hold its shape while not looking too stiff.  For those that went with this type of collar, how do you find it?  I'll be wearing it under suits sans tie and I'm trying to stay away from those shirt collars that feel like there's a piece of cardboard around your neck but at the same time I would like it to stand up.  Any advice?

I went with unfused, but lined with warzone oxford fabric, and it turned out pretty well, its not stiff, and definitely holds its shape.

I was curious about Tebas & Luxire for quite some time, since I also didn't want to go to Spain for one. Since I can't wear a sport coat for work, a Teba in casual cotton cloth like the navy chambray, with patch pockets and rounded quaters would be nice. Otherwise I might order the shirt jacket with patch pockets in the future.
