post #7996 of 11392
I'm looking at ordering a White OCBD for casual use. I'd like the fabric to be not too heavy, although it's Oxford cloth so of course it's going to be reasonably bulky.

Any opinions on

Cheers

I really like the Warzone White Oxford. I have heard some complains about its thickness, but that has not bothered me (yet), and even though I am very sensitive to rough fabrics. The only disadvantage I have in mind is how 'good' it is in attracting dust and studs from my wool sweaters, because I have not experienced it with my other Luxire OCBDs.

We have started work on making live our new website. It has the basic suit ordering functionality, which will be enhanced over time.

 

As always, will keep getting better with your feedback.

 

Shirt ordering will become much simpler and options are pretty exhaustive.

Should be live in March, may be even end of this month. Will hopefully give freedom from notes, without taking away your right to individuality.

 

Navy is in the works, should be ready in 3-4 weeks. A charcoal grey in our 30 Oz cloth will be ready next week. That is something substantial.

I just ordered my first Luxire shirt based off a lot of the advice and reviews in this forum. Because I didn't know how well it would fit I paid $35 for a "fitting trial shirt".

 

One thing that I have found that I didn't like was the collar. Below I have a few photos of the shirt against an ETON shirt that I own. The collar doesn't feel as firm as other shirts that I have owned. Is this because I ordered an unfused collar? The picture below shows how easy it is for me to fold the fabric while the ETON stays stiff.

 

 

Furthermore, the picture below shows the ETON collar very flat while the edge of the Luxire shirt has little "dimples". Ultimately my goal is to have a collar like my ETON shirt. I am thinking this must mean that I should go with a fused collar. Any help would be appreciated!

It has nothing to do with fused vs. unfused, rather it's an interlining weight issue. I have dozens of bespoke shirts with unfused collars and none of them bend and wrinkle like the one in your picture. I've tried to fix the issue in my currently pending order, by sending an existing shirt and requesting interlining of a similar weight.

The only thing really holding me back at this point is that I don't want to be without my best fitting navy blazer for a month or two while they make the new jacket.

I am also curious about this.

Fused interlining vs canvas interlining vs no interlining

When I want a soft but firm collar, I ask for a canvas interlining and if I want it firm then I use the default fused collar.

Coat looks awesome, mind telling us the price?

 

Just received a pair of pants and a shirt yesterday. 11 days from placing order to being on my doorstep. Decided to branch out on my pant colors a bit and got the maroon twill and holy shit is this color awesome. Liked the swatch but wasn't completely sold, glad I pulled the trigger though as I love the pants even more than the swatch. Will be a great pair to spice up my grey and navy pant collection.
