EDIT: If you have something similar Luxire, I'll take 10.

 

I would argue that this one is very close.

Update, just measured the collar to the end of the shoulder seam, and it is 6 inches. Decrease 1 inch or 0.5 on both shoulders?

I'd suggest pinning the shirt (with safety or tailor's pins) at your desired points. Adjust your measurements accordingly based on how much fabric length the pins end up removing.

In the end it's about how you prefer the look to be and how it is most comfortable for you to wear. Aesthetically, much of it is subjective.

I am also 6'2" and I have found 33" is the best length for dress shirts for me. Obviously they cannot be worn untucked.

I am same height and have exact same length for my dress shirts as well.  It is perfect.  With proper arm holes and that length, my dress shirt never untucks a bit.

Looks fantastic! What tie is that? Drakes, or Shibumi?

 

Also, is that with the shirt through the wash yet, or no? It doesn't look like it. The collar lays very different after it's been through the wash (unbuttoned). Give that a try. I think it'll open up a bit more.

@Turner do you have an order number for that collar? Know you said you would update the spreadsheet with measurements over the holiday.

Have my eye on Clap's One Collar, your hidden BD, and need to decide upon which traditional OCBD collar to copy.

Might I ask what kind of collar that is, besides that it's one piece? Or rather, what do I tell Luxire? :3

Ah, yes that navy denim chambray is close but it's darker, which isn't as much of a deal breaker as the fabric weight. PJ's is lighter and softer bearing more resemblance to a "denim dress shirt" than Luxire's offering. But, at 80USD, I'll consider it.

The tie is a Drake's Navy Shantung with light blue dots. I took the pictures after washing and ironing, but when the shirt was ironed, i gave the collar a light press with a towel. Right after ironing the collar looked like this, which works best for sunny days at the river with a cigar in the one hand and a drink in the other:

 

 

I'm very pleased how versatile that collar is.

 

Drawback is that I didn't get the whole one-piece construction this time. True one-piece collars go down from the collar band to the placket in a single piece, usually down to the third button or all the way to the bottom of the shirt. This is how I've got my first two Luxire one-pieces, but now it was constructed with a separate placket. 

 

Probably because I wanted to have both sides of the placket stiched, since otherwise the large underside of the placket is very floppy and a pain to iron properly. The downside is that the placket doesn't roll in a gentle curve but has a crease at the jont seam of placket and collar (like in the picture above). It isn't a problem, but I prefer the look of a one-piece collar and placket and will go that way with future orders. Luxire did a fantastic job realizing my requests.

Its #6300, I've already included some measurements and links into the spreadsheet, but will complete it when I find the time.

I have received two orders recently and wanted to share my experience and ask a quesiton.

First, I am so pleased that such a convenient high quality option even exists for those willing to take time to learn the program. Given the dreck that is out there for well north of $150, its brilliant to pay $60 for something that is comfortable, custom and clearly well made.

Anyway, my first order was a Pale Blue End-on-End 100/2 with the English Spread. Little did I know that I REALLY wanted the Modified English Spread. No matter, really like this shirt.
The second order was for the Blue Dress Stripes Twill with the instructions to copy the PC Londoner collar. They completely nailed it and this shirt is also excellent.

Both will be in the regular rotation and I will have more additions in the works shortly.

Finally, a question for all of you: Have you all noticed any shrinking after sending out for laundering?

Yes my shirts did shrink slightly after 2-3 washes.

Can you post pictures of your shirts? I was going to go with blue dress stripes twill but since summer is upon us, I'm gonna get the pale pink. I don't wear ties or suits so no need for the staple business colors
