Oh my, this is very interesting. How would the jacket be constructed? Presumably without fusing or canvassing on the front, and without shoulder pads? I'd love to get one like this from you but I unfortunately don't have a sample to send in. Hmm, maybe come spring or summer other people will have tried it and so you'll have the process down...post #934 of 238271/15/13 at 5:54pmpost #935 of 238271/16/13 at 4:35ampost #936 of 238271/16/13 at 6:22ampost #937 of 238271/16/13 at 6:45ampost #938 of 238271/16/13 at 7:09amThread Starter
We usually charge the customer after we start work on the garment.
Website is the best option. In case of any problems, we can process your order offline.post #939 of 238271/16/13 at 7:14amThread Starterpost #940 of 238271/16/13 at 7:19amThread StarterQuote:

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.
I was thinking about ordering a couple of shirts from Luxire but this fit gives me great hesitation. It demonstrates the reason one avoids RTW except it is MTM. Perhaps the measurements were taken poorly, sure, but I do not want to order shirts that are completely useless. And I do not have a shirt with me to send in or measure from, thus the whole reason I might order a couple of emergency shirts.I would use body measurements. If anyone has any input(Luxire included, of course), feel free to enlighten me one way or the other.I would be completely upset if I received a shirt that fit this way. I know my measurements will not be so far off.post #943 of 238271/16/13 at 10:21am
Shirt will be made based on the measurements you provide. I have 5 shirts and I am still tweaking my measurements a bit, but they have been produced to specifications I requested. They will also keep a file for you of different measurements you like - I have a casual, dress, and dress with french cuff. My guess is that manchambo would admit the fit of his Luxire shirt was due to user error given that he posted the pics asking for advice.post #944 of 238271/16/13 at 10:26amQuote:Originally Posted by gambit50

The short (and painful) answer to this is there is no way to avoid fit issues. The only true way to get a (as close to) perfectly fitted shirt (as possible) would be to have a tailor make one for you and then have subsequent fittings and adjustments made. This takes into consideration things like sleeve pitch, collar modifications, length adjustments required to remedy shrinkage, etc, etc. However, this process is not the goal (nor should it be) of a MTM shirtmaker. Let alone one that operates on the internet.
I have turned to online shirtmakers to make the majority of my casual shirting (OCBDs and the like). However, I only get good results by taking measurements from my pre-existing bespoke shirts and denoting every fine detail and measurement involved. Sometimes the result has been great, sometimes not so much. However, remember the nature of the beast here; it's on you to get the end-product correct, not the maker. This would be a different story if a IRL tailor were involved.
My simplest advice would be to have multiple measurements taken. Take your own and then have a tailor measure you. If you're lucky, the tailor might even offer up advice on posture or necessary corrections to your current shirt. However, this will likely not happen unless the tailor has made garments for you in the past. From there you can "average out" your two measures and go from there. As with anything, I'd also recommend ordering a test shirt (in a cheaper material and with a more simplistic design (i.e. skip all the bells as whistles so often discussed here). That way you can get a more objective idea of fit and necessary alterations.post #945 of 238271/16/13 at 10:30amThis is a problem with MTM in general. You probably don't know your measurements well enough to get a good result. With RTW, at least you are *usually* getting something that is of a decent style, proportion, etc, even if the fit isn't perfect. I'd definitely avoid MTM of any type, shirts, suits, shoes, anything, until you know yourself and your clothes well enough to justify it.
As long as the MTM outfit is producing the clothes to your measurement, they are doing their job. If you give them bad measurements, that's another problem.
This is doubly a problem with suits, and why I never recommend online MTM to anyone.
