    Unlined and unfused are 2 different things: Unfused collars have an interlining that is not fused, pasted using heat, onto the shell. Unlined, is whereby you have just the 2 layers of shell and no interlining in between.

    Pants have been overdue. Everything is "almost" ready, just the last steps are required. Hopefully just on time for Christmas delivery. Else, January 2013.

    Quality is a mindset. Thankfully, every member of the Luxire team has acquired that and every new entrant starts with the goal of producing the best shirts in the world. It is now more difficult for us to produce a bad shirt than a good one. Our pant making skills have reached that level too. We just need to get a few other things in place.

    Overall, I am incredibly pleased with these shirts, as a college student with 2 jobs that I have to dress in business attire for, Luxire offers an affordable option that fits my measurements. The turn around was quick, customer service helpful, and each shirt matches my exact specifications. I wholeheartedly recommend Luxire to anyone considering them.

    On to my shirts. I think for the next round I am going to add .5 in the chest and waist, subtract .5 at the hem for all shirts, as they are currently just a little restrictive.

    As for the casual shirt worn untucked you can probably see the blousing at the hem, I specified a length of 27.5 for this more casual shirt, and didn't think of the implications of an expansion from 18" at the waist to 20" at the hem. To address this next time I think adding .5-1" of length while adding some at the waist and subtracting at the hips should fix the current appearance of a womanly hips/an hourglass shape.

    Any other comments or tips on fit would be great, for reference I am 6'1" 160 lbs. Here are some fit pics:
    (first is: Pale blue poplin 2/100, second is navy red cream gingham twill)

    The shirts are really nice, but your trousers look like they have a bit of a low rise.

    It's a matter of personal taste, but I think your casual shirt is too short by 2", myself. I'm 6" and get casual shirts at 29.5", dress shirts at 31". The rest of it looks pretty good.

    I have just received the shirts in the below picture and I can tell you Luxire absolutely destroys Cottonwork, Proper Cloth, Shirtsmyway.com and Indochino in terms of value, quality and price. I have no idea how they can charge less than Proper Cloth and make a product that is easily more superior. Luxire is the only company I will be ordering from in the future.

    Seriously, if you are reading this and trying to decide to buy a Luxire shirt or not. Just do it, you will be incredibly pleased with the fabric, the buttons, the craftsmanship and the value (good luck beating their pricing).

    Full disclosure: There is a little problem with the sleeve length on two of the shirts but I'm sure Luxire's excellent customer service will resolve that.

    I second that. It's a real need but satisfying customers with their orders is the primary target.

    Hm, not sure whether that'd be the best move in my opinion. Of course, I do understand your point of view but even when I'm going to the best bespoke tailor in Paris (Camps de Luca in my opinion), I'll ask who's the draper/mill (Scabal, Loro Piana, Holland & Sherry, etc.). I know they have fabrics of great quality but still, there are some I prefer and I definitely appreciate to know what I'm buying.
    Naming all of your cloths Luxire is an understandable choice but I think most people would like to know what they're choosing as they'll have a reference.

    If you seriously intend to do it anyway, my piece of advice would be to offer for 5/10 USD, whatever price you might consider appropriate, a bunch of fabrics to be sent to customers so that they can see what kind of fabrics you have.

    I own quite a significant number of suits and shirts and between a wool and cashmere fabric from a very 'standard' draper and a wool and cashmere from Loro Piana, there's a great difference. The same goes with shirt fabrics, I will never think that "no name" 120/2 are the same than 120/2 from Alumo, Albini and others.

    That's not my decision but I just thought I'd give my opinion. I love your concept, your prices, your flexibility and the speed at which you deliver orders but not indicating the mill isn't the best move according to me.

    Agreed, I think listing the mill is one of the many ways you positively distinguish yourself from other competitors. I'm not sure I see the point behind labeling everything Luxire, as the customer knows they are buying from you and is trying to differentiate between your different fabrics.

    I have MTM shirts from several makers. What I'd really like to see is the fabric mill's logo, the maker I will remember, but mills tend to slip my mind. Any shirt will only last so long as the fabric lasts.

    Thank you for the suggestions friends.

    Our idea was to free you from that thought process. Choose the design, choose the weight and rest assured.

    But, the case for not only continuing but focusing on mill names along with fabrics is strong. We will certainly reconsider.

    I think it's best if the customer know which mill the fabric is from.

    For those of you who have ordered are you submitting shirt measurements or body measurements?

    All the positive reviews here make me really want to give a shot. If you gave body measurements did the shirt come out as wanted? or were tweaks needed?

    Cheers.
