Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1883

Speaking of Luxire …

 

As readers of this thread know, I’m a fan of Proper Cloth’s Milano II collar.  PC’s current cloth options do not meet my current needs, however, and I’m considering seeing if Luxire, which has a much bigger selection, can replicate that collar.  It seems tacky to discuss this on either of the two relevant affiliate threads, since they are, of course, competitors.  So I’m starting here.  I know some of you guys wear Luxire and PC shirts.

 

In short, have any of you had Luxire replicate a Proper Cloth collar?

 

In the case of the Milano II, here are the specifications offered on the PC website:

 

3 11/16” collar points;  6 ½” spread;  1 5/8” front collar band height;  2” rear collar height; stiff fused interlining; removable collar stays; two button closure.

 

Here’s a link to the PC webpage:

Advice?

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

I don't see it on the collar spreadsheet tinyurl.com/luxirecollars but I'm certain Luxire would be able to replicate provided measurements and a photo

Speaking of PC - don't get the hidden button down. The loops keep slipping off the buttons, which are so big it makes the whole collar 'float'

Didn't @Henry Carter have Luxire replicate the Milano II?

Haha, no I'm sure there are some decent places. I remember my brother talked about an old hotel that has a good bar and maybe a french restaurant in it? When are you going again?

I got the soft Milano II spread. It is a striking collar, but is very high. I am 6'0 tall and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone shorter than that.

Actually, I've already got three.  It's my favorite collar.  I'm 5'9".

 

It's not so much how tall you are, in my experience.  It's about how long your neck is, proportionally.

If someone has copied the Roma spread, or the ivy button down, let me know

You're probably right. The first time I wore it was with some jeans and without a tie, and it was just so different than all the OTR collars I've experienced before.

Yeah but they didn't do a great job. The collar is still lovely, but a long way off the milano 2.

Thanks for responding.  Are you able to say a bit more specifically what it was they didn't get right?  Thanks.

No worries. In short, too cut away and collar points are a bit short. I did send them the exact measurements off the pc site.

I've been meaning to give pc a go but the weak AUD and $30 shipping has had me putting it off.

To be honest, it looks bad, on you as well. The difference between how steed jackets look on you and on Vox is massive.

I don't know why I say to be honest, because I'm always honest. Nothin but the harsh truth for you guys. Pads would look good on you.
