I also used an existing pair of OTR jeans. They were not my ideal fit, and therefore the measurements ended up bigger than I needed.

 

You are probably not going to get the first pair perfect, and if you go into it with this in mind it will make any disappointment with fit easier to swallow. Try and purchase your first pair with the least expensive cloth you stand and know that your second pair will be much better.

 

Note this only pertains to jeans which fit different than more formal trousers. For my first pair of trousers I will be sending in one of my custom made pairs to have copied.

 

If I had custom jeans already made, I would have mailed them in to be copied.

Hadn't seen the thread search. Was only using the general SF search instead, so thanks :).

 

@DavidLane and @Monkeyface, thanks for your input! It definitely seems like getting proper measurements is no easy task, especially for the first pair. Its good to hear that your at least satisfied with the fabric and construction.

Someone asked for measurements of the #1738 collar. Here are the pics.

This shirt I got I asked for light fusing collar and cuff and it's very comfortable.

Hey guys,

So this is my third shirt from luxire, but I this one is by far the worst fitting especially in the back area. The first two are fine but this one seems just loose. Originally I sent in a well fitting shirt to get replicated with minor adjustments.

I know both my shirts have shrunk a little, I haven't washed this one yet. Anyone else have this issue? the Front of the shirt is ok to me.






PS, ignore the crew neck shirt and crappy dress pants

Why would your third shirt be the worst fitting yet? puzzled.gif What measurements did you change?

Looks like you need to increase the bottom measurement and add darts to the back.

This was the instructions I sent luxire

1. Let out the armhole by 1/2 an inch
2. No placket
3. No tie space
4. Lightly fused collar and cuff.
5. Angled cuff
6. Collar #1738
7. Move 1st button up 1/4 an inch ( I mean't the 2nd button, but they knew this)
8. Split yoke (I think they do this by default)

angled cuff?

Is it just me, or did the button holes in general become too big? All my shirts since December pop open from time to time by themselves, regardless if the standard or thin standard buttons are used. Can be quite annoying.

Glad I placed my order for the Light Tan Twill Chinos before it sold out. Hopefully I did the correct measurements this time, the last shirt I had made was way too small. I haven't had a ton of luck getting the measurements right with any of my MTM orders

I"ve noticed the same thing as well. They pop open very easily once in a while
