post #6601 of 14519

While we're on the topic of ordering out-of-season items, has anyone ordered a shirt in the "Blue Summer Chambray" fabric?  If so, can you comment on the quality of the fabric, and especially the color?  I'm curious if the color is as bright as shown on Luxire's website or if it's more subdued.  Pics would be appreciated, as well.

Search the thread for it.  I know the SKY blue summer chambray is quite the hit, and is more versatile.

Shirts are definitely shipping faster than ever. I placed an order on Nov 30th (6 shirts this time) and they shipped on Dec 9. I used the same measurements as my last order with no changes. The original estimate on the tracking page said they would be delivered today, but there were some unexpected delays and now my shirts are sitting in France, and the delivery estimate now says N/A. I'm still hoping they will get here by the end of the week.

That's the strange part -- I did a search for chambray in this thread and came up with nothing regarding the blue summer chambray or sky blue summer chambray.  But, I vaguely recall reading about it in the past, just don't remember exactly where.

Yeah, there are extreme temps in the desert. I lived near Joshua Tree for a few years and during  the winter there were temperature swings of 50 to 60 degrees sometimes between 4 am and noon. It would be in low 20's when I left for work at 4 am.

Search Tool Broken??

 

The "Search This Thread" tool doesn't seem to be working correctly for me.  Just as a test, I found post #1928 with the word "dobby".  When I search for "dobby", only three posts and post #1928 is not one of them.  I verified that I'm not selecting a time-frame for the search.  This could explain why I can't find any information about the blue summer chambray.

 

Is this the correct place to post about this problem or should I post somewhere else so it can be investigated??

I've lurked this thread for a while

most of my clothes are thrifted and while I have aquired a few amazing pieces Im going take with me to the grave, staples are hard to come by

being very slim and 6' 5 doesn't help

im thinking about slowly transitioning a good portion of my shirting and suiting to luxire but I had a few questions

I think it was timo that posted a wonderful button down pattern he had created with a wide spread and exaggerated roll, I was just wondering whether he could post a photo of the shirt with the top button undone to see what it looks like when not worn with a tie

also which of the oxford shirting materials is the most "oxfordy" meaning corse and heavy and well "oxfordy"

also has anyone requested button cuffs on trousers a la ambrosi?

and finally can someone post a photo/check in on how their pique polo shirts are doing after some wear, only things posted about them were right out of the box

Just got my latest shipment from Luxire. Very impressed with the quality once again and this time it was a much faster turnaround (16 days).

+1. 

 

hoodog: the fabric is http://luxire.com/products/light-blue-bengal-stripes-100-2 (as it says on his blog).

 

Looks great, will probably get this in my next order.

Yup as Xtra said it is the light blue bengal stripe. I get the English Spread collar, but I ask for a slightly higher sitting collar (4.8cm) and 3.25 inch collar points. Having said that I have a longish neck and a long face so it may not be suitable to ask for a bigger collar.
