Does anyone know the measurements of the standard 1738 collar?

Fantastic collar.  I think this is the best BD I've seen on a Luxire shirt.  Details please.

Collar length is 3.5 inches. What else are you looking for? I have two shirts with them and one should be here on Tuesday. I'll be posting pics hopefully unless my GF thinks it's odd I'm taking pics for strange men on the internet crackup[1].gif

Edit, I posted a picture a few pages back with the 1738 collar but it wasn't the best quality

For those of you who own the Brembana Navy Chambray, how heavy is it? I love the look of the fabric, but was wondering how suitable it is for spring/summer. I'm looking to get a navy shirt made, but may have to try some kind of linen if this is too heavy.

Thanks for the response. I'm also curious about the collar band height (front and back) and the point to point spread when worn.

And don't worry about your girlfriend. My wife is the same but she has only herself to blame. She's the one who got me interested in dressing nicely.

Me now:

I just got my third shirt from Luxire, a classic blue oxford BD and must say i'm pleased as always. I've been ordering one shirt at a time trying to get my measurement down (I started using body measurements) before committing to larger orders. As of now i'm pretty happy with the overall fit, but wouldn't mind getting some advice from some fellow SF'ers just to make sure its a close to perfect as possible before i start going for some of the better fabrics :).

 

I tried getting back darts on this shirt to see if it would help remove some of the excess fabric in the back. The only thing I'm thinking changing is to reduce the lower waist by 0.25-0.5 inches. Would any of you guys have additional suggestions? Sorry for the low quality iphone pictures. Also, I wore the shirt all day before taking these pictures (unfortunately) which is a large source of the wrinkles.

I would probably take away a little on the lower back, lengthen the sleeves, tighten the sleeves and the cuffs and, maybe, rise the armpits.

I would say it's too heavy for summertime. In a Norwegian summer I'm guessing the temperature might be from about 15-20 degrees celsius, and I found it too hot last summer. 

 

Spring - again from what kind of temperatures I'm used to, I would say it's OK most days during spring. In conclusion - yes, it's quite heavy.

But is it soft?

Yes, it's soft. It even feels flannel-ish. Very comfortable.

+1 to what NOBD is saying, very comfortable shirt.

@amcolex shirt looks pretty good. Have luxire compensate for your forward shoulders, and maybe reduce the measurement of the sleeve at the elbow. It will reduce some of the puffiness.

It's actually their default collar. Pretty close to perfect, could be just a tad longer imho.

Thanks. My summers are substantially hotter than yours, so it sounds like it would be a bad idea.

Here's my second shirt from Luxire. It fits generally well but I'd like to clean up a few things, especially the wrinkling/pulling in the shoulder area, as circled in red. What kind of adjustments should be made to alleviate this? Any other things to change for my next one? Appreciate the feedback!
