It's not. For one shirt, it'll be around $30. I have done it multiple times.

Exactly. For $90 it would be cheaper to throw it out and buy a new shirt.

I've been going back and forth with Luxire about getting a remake for my last shirt, and I wish they would respond to emails faster, because it's dragging the whole process out. It took 6 days and 2 emails from me to get a response, and I still don't have confirmation that they will accept my remake request...I guess there was some communication breakdown between what I asked for and what they did to the shirt. At this point I will just eat the shipping charge if I have to, because I just want to get the shirt fixed without waiting another week for an email response. Once I get these last minor changes fixed, the shirt should turn out perfectly, and then I will really be able to restock my closet fully.

Both of those companies are out of their minds. Try USPS International First Class.

Try DHL.

Seriously, yeah. USPS's price calculator says $15 for a 1lb package, $25 for 2lb.

post #5467 of 14613

i dont think a shirt is going to be 1lb+

EMS is fastest for international shipping for usps and they're like ~50 when i ship things like jackets and shoes which are heavier so there is no reason the shipping should be that high

 

That said, it's probably better to just order another shirt from luxire rather than have them remake it unless the fabric of the shirt that you ordered was expensive, which in that case you should've ordered a cheap trial shirt first

I'd appreciate some feedback on improving the fit of this OCBD. It's meant to be worn casually, untucked with denim. I ordered it about 6 months ago when I was coming off a shoulder surgery, and since then have bulked up a little after I started working out again.

 

I also based my measurements on the hope that there actually wouldn't be any shrinkage, since Luxire states they prewash all fabrics. It did shrink substantially in some measurements. I throw OCBDs in the dryer frequently, especially if I'm on the road. I figure a casual fabric like it should be able to handle a dryer easily. It mainly shrank in the neck, yoke, sleeve length, and back length. It didn't shrink in the chest/hip measurements.

 

My thoughts on changes:

3/4" larger collar

3/4" larger yoke

3/4" larger each sleeve from the shoulder seam, making them about 1" longer in total

3/4" larger chest

1/4" larger waist/hips

1" larger in back length

slightly lower 2nd button

 

Anything else I should consider? I have sloping shoulders and chose side seams on the back, does that work?

Sorry, but I learned  a long time ago to never put non-synthetic clothing in a dryer regularly without expecting shrinkage. I won't even use warm water to wash clothes. Hang dry shirts, jeans, khakis.

+1. Ever since I started caring about my clothes, I hang dry most items. Not only does it prevent shrinkage, but it will make clothes last much longer.

I also use only cold water, but even after hang drying my shirts and jeans will always shrink some. I think hang drying just slows down the process. I like to throw shirts in the dryer a couple times to get any shrinkage out of the way, then hang dry as much as possible after that. Anyway, it's not an issue, I'll just account for it when submitting my measurements.

If everything else besides the button holes is alright. Could we not order Suits from them and have them not do the Button holes and get them done by someone else?

No offence, but I simply think it's funny, somehow

Damn! 40$ per hole. Thats $$$

Admittedly, their prices are great for the quality. But there is only one tailor in the city I live in who is remotely capable of doing decent buttonholes. He charges $40 per hole. Any savings I might have by getting something through Luxire is long gone if I have to pay to get the buttonholes done myself.

 

I'd say thats a good idea. Get it warmed up once for starters/

Sometimes the jokes just write themselves.

So, who else wants to learn to love one-button jackets?

post #5475 of 14613
Oy. The tuxedo shirts have small holes for the studs, not slits. I couldn't get the spring loaded studs or the solid back studs to fit in there. And 2 other people on here had the same problem it seems. My solution was rather inelegant but the only option - I had someone cut into the edge of a hole and extend a slight slit.

***I really recommend you tell them you want slit openings because I have no idea what kinds of studs fit through these***
