No extra yet (USA) but also curious about the price discrepancy
post #9182 of 11718

Drew a blank on receiving feedback from Luxire directly, so I'd appreciate any comments you gents have on my shirt fit. I have circled what I believe to be the problem areas.

 

What I think needs to be changed:

  • Adjust for my sloping shoulders?
  • Increase yoke? increase armhole size?
  • Remove the pleats

I have sloping shoulders myself and have found that getting a rough idea of how much a shirt or jacket needs to be adjusted is as simple as...raising my shoulders a bit. smile.gif

If the diagonal creases disappear as they go up then you know that's part of the issue, and can get an idea of how much slope needs to be added to the pattern by estimating how much you have to raise them to get the look you want.

Otherwise the fit looks great!

I think the chest is too tight, leading to the creases.

Personally I think the fit looks great and you will never get rid of all wrinkles unless you opt for stretch fabrics.

 

Maybe a slight increase in shoulder slope will reduce the issue; certainly the tailors over at the fit feedback thread will know best what exactly needs changing to your pattern:

I'd opt for less tie space on my collar but that's just personal preference.

Can i request more cotton linen blend options, particularly in lighter (more subtle) colors? Like your current sky blue and pale pink, but a couple of shades lighter.

A light blue, light pink, and light lavender would do wonders for my wardrobe.

Is this pink oxford at 148 gms/5 Oz going to be too heavy for a summer shirt? I reckon the oxford weave might be airy enough to make it OK; thoughts?

I have to admit, lavender cotton linen would be pretty awesome. But I haven't experienced the cotton linen yet. Just placed my first Lux order, one in cotton linen and one test shirt to try out the fit for another idea I have. I'm expecting great things after reading this thread.

Will work on these shades. I thought we have added all the shades we have in them, but, seem to missing many. Will get those added.

They will soften and cool beautifully after a few washes.

Luxire,

 

Have you been able to get your hands on a white with grey dress stripe shirt (in a non oxford fabric)?

What kind of collar setting do you guys use for achieving a soft look without it being entirely unfused?

I'd like to know this as well.

 

In addition, with the 'unfused by default' button down collar (asking both Luxire and anyone with any experience with it) - how does the collar roll compare to say, Mercer & Sons, or vintage BB? I go with Proper Cloth mostly for my custom shirts because of their wonderful 'Soft Ivy Collar', which rolls beautifully, but am very interested in Luxire's fabric options...
