I received a couple of shirts from Luxire yesterday. I think I've found my new main supplier of shirts.

Looking very good but very slightly too tight, no?

Maybe its only too tight if the placket is stretching and the buttons are popping?

Usually, tight when standing means too tight when sitting.

And usually what goes up must come down and yet that's not what we're talking about...

It's just advice, no need to be so hostile. If he thinks it fits perfectly, then that's wonderful, but if you post something here you're going to get some feedback.

Seems like things are moving fast from luxire. I paid for a shirt 6 days ago and it was shipped last night, that's fast boys!

This is the order for  best fitting to worse fitting first attempt:

1.  Sending in a replicate shirt/trousers and make tweaks to it (e.g. minus 0.5 inches in bicep from replicate)
2.  Measuring your best fitting shirt/trousers and submitting those measurements (using Luxire's measuring guide)

3.  Measuring your body and submitting those measurement

Here's the problem, Luxire's website does nothing to set those expectations. Now that I've gone through the process, I'd agree with your order of best to worse, but again, Luxire does nothing to indicate this on their site. Because of these two reasons, I do point the finger at Luxire.

If you're used to MTM clothing then you know what to expect, but if you're brand new to it, you don't and apparently set your expectations too high. Silly me, thinking I'd get a wearable piece of clothing from a shirt maker.

i dont think Luxire should be at the end of your frustration because of your own ignorance about the process.

He makes a fair point. If someone isn't comfortable measuring their body then the product won't turn out so well.

Maybe luxire in the future can suggest the best method to nail the shirt down. I sent my shirt in because someone from another local forum did the same and said it came out perfect

Online MTM is a fickle business, and it takes time to get things right. This is not Luxire's fault, it's just the nature of the beast. You could have picked any one of dozens of online MTM retailers and chances are you would have gotten the same result, and if you did get a perfect fitting shirt on the first try it would have been dumb luck. Patience is the most important quality to have when dialing in your fit. I've been getting online MTM shirts made for four years, so I have plenty of experience with this.

Also, Luxire has some test shirt fabrics for something like $29.99. If there's one thing Luxire can do better for new customers I'd say it would be advertising these test shirts.

Overcoat is getting produced, ordered another navy twill trouser and a linen-cotton shirt, really looking forward to that stuff! :nodding:

It looks slightly too tight in that pic, but it's not. I can move freely without strains in the fabric. It's very comfy.

When will swatches of the Brisbane Moss fabrics be available?
When can one expect you to order a new batch of buttons?
