    I just measured the one from Luxire and my other Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt. Here are the measurements (Yeah, I am skinny):
    [​IMG]
    pre-#3543 (should be #3453) is my measurements before I ordered the shirt, while GBV is the shirt I measured for pre-#3543. As you can see, the Luxire shirt and the pre-shirt differentiates a little bit from my GBV shirt, but that's not a lot. It's only a half inches in some places, how could the shirt from Luxire be skin tight while GBV fits? As you can see the chest width is the same in those three examples, but that's where the Luxire shirt is at the tightest.

    A smaller yoke and higher armhole could definitely influence the fit of the chest.

    Were the measurements on the Luxire shirt supposed to be exactly the same as your GBV shirt? If so, they seriously messed up....sleeve length is a full 2 inches too short? That would render a shirt completely unwearable for me, you should return it and have it remade.

    A couple of questions:

    About how long does it take for a Luxire shirt and/or pants order?


    Is there anything between the semi-spread collar and the spear point collar?

    Wouldn't a smaller yoke reduce the back area? I agree with you about extending the armhole.

    Yeah, almost. But I did some changes with the shirt length (because I was customizing a dress shirt) and decreased the shirt length, it was the intention. The sleeve length ended up being maybe 0.5-1 inches too long, which is actually my fault, but everything else should be all right.

    How complicated is it to return the shirt and have it remade? I heard something about the Indians customs being strict or something.

    The chest measurement in a shirt is taken at the lowest point of the armholes.
    There is a significant part of your chest which lies above that point.
    My guess is that the width of said area between your shoulders and the chest is determined by the width of the yoke.
    The greater the yoke in the back the greater the front of the shirt in said area.

    I honestly don't really care about wait times as long as the quality is good like it is now. I've left a lot of tailors both online and B&M due to inconsistent quality.

    Luxire,

    Any plans to do sweaters at some point? If so, any timeline? Thanks.

    Luxire, any chance of adding some shirt fabrics like

    1. A mauve/light purple plain, e.g. royal oxford

    2. A white herringbone (current one is off-white)

    3. A sky/pale/light blue herringbone (standard one is more an oxford blue).

    None of the standard ones shown but can be ordered by choosing custom.

    I have a shorter neck, so I am experimenting with a curved collar as well, and smaller neck band. Should be interesting, Luxire is quite accommodating...

    Yes, that's great. Anything seems to be possible. Have you ordered it yet? And if so, what fabric did you choose?
