^ Thanks! I just have to try out that fabric then.

By the way, I hope you'll add more corduroy and also some moleskin fabrics on your site soon.

It would start at $199.99, with extensive handwork.

Yes, I would love some corduroys and moleskins.

Im looking for some fit advice. I've attached images of two shirts, the first (the blue one) is my first Luxire order and the second (the white one) is a Canali shirt I think fits pretty well. I generally like the fit of the Luxire shirt, though I need to have the cuffs downsized a bit. The sleeves are hanging a bit long, but I believe that's due to the over large cuggs. I think the Canali one may fit a little better--it is just a bit more slim fitting. So the question is, when I order my next shirts, whether I should (i) get some tweaks to the Luxire fit, (ii) send the Canali for replication, or (iii) do something else. Please note that I do not intend to wear the Adidas pants with either shirt--I would only wear gray sweat pants with a blue dress shirt.

The Canali is a bit slimmer, but I certainly wouldn't call it slim.

On both shirts, the shoulders are far too wide--see how they are cascading past your shoulder and a good way down your arm?

The Luxire is also a bit long in the arm, and looks like the sleeve opening could be slimmed down a bit too so it doesn't slip down over your hand. The whole sleeve could really be trimmed out a bit. Possibly the armhole as well, but I can't really see it.

You could also slim both shirts out a bit in the waist, but don't go too far--you're a larger man, getting something super slim isn't going to flatter you.

I agree with aravenel on the shoulders and sleeves. I would be careful going too much slimmer than the Canali - make sure there is still enough room in the stomach when you sit down. I have made this mistake before.

I would recommend measuring the Canali and adjust from there. You can probably take as much as three inches out of the shoulders.

Yeah, this is probably a good idea. The Canali fits pretty well except for in the shoulders (can't see the neck as it's not buttoned up), so it may be easiest to start there and subtract from the shoulder width.

Thanks for the thoughts. Maybe this is a dumb question, but if I shorten the shoulder width do I need to lengthen the sleeve?
post #914 of 14421
Won't be a problem because you will measure the sleeve length from the middle of the shoulders. Luxire has directions on their website. Good luck.

No. As sleeve measurement includes half yoke, a smaller yoke would result in a longer sleeve.
