I'll post pictures as soon as it arrives, for those curious.
Is there a diagram or instructions on how to get measurements for a vest?

Yep, I learned that maybe I should specify all of my special requests for every order, even replicas. Now if that doesn't work, then there is nothing else to learn and I will probably be done...I don't see that happening though. I emailed Luxire to let them know I wasn't too thrilled and asked for advice with future orders.

Not that I know of... I used a variety of ways to get the measurements and it wasn't at all scientific. I looked at the measurements of Cucinelli vests online, figuring I was in between a small and a medium. This was just to make sure I was in the right ballpark. Then I looked at my shirt measurements, and basically used those measurements with a few slight tweaks. I wanted the vest to be fitted, so I thought using the shirt measurements wouldn't be a terrible idea. I also have a jacket that has different materials for the sleeves and fits just like I want the vest to, so it was easy to visualize it as a vest. I used this to get the BOC and yoke measurements.

However, I did order in a cheaper fabric than I wanted. This is a test run, I expect it to need a little tweaking.

He "messed up" by assuming Luxire kept his special comments on file, and not repeating all his special requests in the notes of the order.

 

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but think of it like this:  When you reference an order number, you are ONLY referencing the PATTERN of the fabric and nothing else.

 

Also, I confirmed that dugdale fabrics are not available for samples.  I ordered 13 samples with my last order...every last one of em was dugdale!! :box:

Did you ask for a remake?

Interesting. One could think that order number would refer to how the item was ordered. Not only parts of the order.

It's not really that wrinkly.

 

And 'too soft'? That's a thing? I have one with this fabric and I'll be getting at least two more, with different collars. All completely unfused because, well, there's nothing better than a soft shirt. ;)

Is it "see-through" if you don't wear an undershirt?

It's a little see through, yeah. I just assumed almost all comfortable, not terribly stiff, not terribly warm shirts will be somewhat transparent. Plus, I seldom wear a shirt without an undershirt so that's never really a factor to me. Not saying it shouldn't be to you.

Well you might be right about that. Haven't found a nice (not oxford-cloth) white dress-shirt which isn't see-through yet...
I am usually not wearing undershirts, but might start doing so when wearing a white shirt.

Highly highly suggest this one (Lustrous). Therese suggested it since I just asked for a "nice white shirt." I really didn't see it being so soft. It's got an unfused collar, unfused cuffs. Feels like I'm wearing a comforter, only.. more comfortable. :-P (Pic of said shirt, again, below)

My issue with Lustrous is I don't like drapey fabrics... I like a little stiffness to hold the shirt up. 

 

I also find it wrinkles terribly quickly.

These statuses are shown for each order on the "Account Details and Order History" page on your Luxire.com account. I could be mistaken, however.

 

FWIW I ordered an OCBD about 48 hours ago. The "payment status" has already changed to "paid" (I have been charged for it) and the "fulfillment status" is "unfulfilled".
