Nice! You won't regret, the ties are really really awesome!
Certainly. Will be nice with the snaps and the Thermolite quilting. Do PM your fabric choice for deeply discounted pricing on first 5 orders.
Took a pair of Luxire pants to my tailor a couple days ago to have the waist taken in (my fault, not Luxire's) and he couldn't believe how well made the pants were. He pointed out some hand stitching that I'd never noticed and just in general said they're constructed supremely well and will last a long time. Always good to hear that from a guy I've come to trust who knows this stuff way better than I do
Thank you for sharing. Immensely pleased to know.
I want to clarify how to measure the inner collar band. I'm prepping to send you a shirt to copy but I want a different collar on it.
WHen I look at my inner band, I see one stitch at the bottom of the band, closer to the neck, and one at the top. After the top stitch, there is a little fabric that goes up perhaps 0.25 inches before it folds over to the collar wings. So, the total height of the band includes that as well.
If I specify a 1.75 inch collar, is that for your sewers from the bottom of the band up to the fold?
@clapeyron and @Betelgeuse, I'd be curious to know your collar dimensions (Betelgeuse gave me the diagram, which I assume is up to the fold). I'm guessing you have about 0.5 inches of collar showing at the back?
The neckband height extends beyond the stitches. Method shown by @Betelgeuse is correct.
We basically need to measure the height of the visible face of the piece of fabric.
Neckband height and collar back height are 2 different measurements. We make the back of collar 0.25" to 0.5" taller than the neckband so that the neckband and the back of the tie remain hidden when worn.
The ideal terms to use will be: "Neck-band height", "Front Neck-band height", "Collar back height", "collar points", "Tie-space" and "Collar-spread".
You can specify as many or as few measurements as you would like in the note section. Luxire has a spot for bicep measurement. I can't logically grasp how often a shoulder front and shoulder back measurement would differ. I can only imagine it being useful for forward pitched shoulders. Still, the bottom line is that if you specify it, it will be followed if possible. If you have concerns about it, email them and they'll get it squared away for you.
I know, I’m OCD about collars!
Seriously though, how a shirt looks depends in large part on the collar, and that in large part on how it sits on your neck. The google docs of order numbers is helpful, but it doesn’t tell me collar dimensions. If Beatlegeuse (FL) orders Clapyeron’s collar just because it looks good on Clapyeron (and it does), he’s not going to be happy since it will be higher than he would like. 70 bucks flushed down the toilet. (Betelgeuse on the other hand might like Clapyeron's collar, but it is similar to his last post).
I’m fussy about my collar, so the diagrams are helpful. Others might not be so more power to them. If you care, then you need some subset of this info in ordering a shirt that fits you well.
It would be good on the docs if people did include the following: back neck band height, front band height, point length, point spread, back collar height. Some of us would need to adjust these. Might a few people update? Anyway, my 2 cents.
