    No, but if you request it they will probably do it. I suspect they assume that you are also wearing one of their shirts which has a 90 degree sleeve angle and doesn't pull out due to arm movements despite being tailored in the body. It's noticeable when I'm wearing an OTR shirt the day after wearing a Luxire shirt.

    Not sure they will make the 5 days. Fed-Ex is posting something about a "shipping exception" that is delayed "beyond our control." No idea what that means. My first order made it out without any issues, though. Patience is a virtue...a really shitty one, but what else are you going to do?

    Just got the ripstop khaki's in cargo style today. First impressions are pretty good. Nice balance between fashion and functionality. I asked them to make sure the stitching is rugged. Fit is good if not slightly loose...need to check measurements given. It's very likely I plussed up the measurements from normal slacks for the cargo style.

    DAKs with belt loops...turned very well actually. Color is same hue as copper chino (they used copper chino as the waist liner) but more muted version. The ripstop material is softer than expected and not at all course like my other OTR ripstop shorts for example. They made a button closure on my leg opening per my request to reduce the diameter an inch if desired. They put it on the inside of the leg so it's not visible from side. Nice.

    Will consider ordering the black ripstop after wearing these on vacation soon.

    The fifth one from the left (blue stripe) is linen/cotton.

    The blue one looks very nice, which specifications and/or order number?
    I think the pale pink one only needs a wash and will turn out just as nice.

    Both same but may be nature of fabric or my shitty photography; order number is #3361, unlined and unfused.

    Nice. What is your linen shirts to cotton shirts ratio?

    1:3, I think. I love linen, and wear it almost every day in the warmer part of Spring and in Summer.

    Nice.

    Another thing you could try is reducing the gauntlet to a length of around the gauntlet button and removing that button. That's what I've done for all 10 of my Luxire shrits and I love it. Makes getting ready easier, even if it's just that little bit. My gauntlets are around 4" and they don't look weird, they look great. Maybe more of a tell-tale sign that it's custom. It cleans up the sleeve a lot.

    This is if you can get your arm in your sleeve with the gauntlet closed right now.

    Do you mean reducing the length of the gauntlet such that the gauntlet button is not needed? I guess this would be reducing the length of it by about half.

    Are you still able to roll your sleeves? Very important :), especially when it comes to linen.

    Sure am. Its tighter but that works for me, doesn't fall down. Try it on one shirt to see if you like it.

    I need more linen. I ordered one and waited a week and a half for Luxire to tell me they haven't started as they are out of it.. boo. Oh well.

    I saw that one. :cheers:




    I don't think it would work on any of my shirts, except for maybe a few that have sleeves that are much too wide. : ) I'm talking about a real, past the ellbow, roll.

    I just received my first shirt from Luxire. The fabric and the buttons are great, but it didn't fit right.
    The funny thing is that I used the same measurements as an OCBD shirt that fits me, but the shirt from Luxire ends up being too tight in the chest area and the bottom. Anyone why? Is it because of the different kind of fabrics?

    I would measure the one from Luxire. If the measurements aren't the same as the ones you gave, problem solved. [​IMG] There might be the possibility that the way you measure it's different than the way they do.
