    Awesome, and assuming the NOBD collar, which version?

    Edit: Which particular fabric is this?

    Shirt looks great, but even if it didn't I'm such a sucker for navy and medium grey.

    bummed about that navy flannel too. I'm looking forward to getting a pair of camel flannel after my first pair of pants come in the next week or two.

    If you have an existing garment that fits and that you don't mind being without while Luxire is making your new shirt, this is probably the best way to get a good fit. If necessary, you can even have Luxire make adjustments to their replication of your shirt by noting changes. It seems in most cases you get a slightly better shirt on the first attempt if Luxire has a model to work with vs. simply using measurements.

    just a suggestion - it would be awesome to receive credit on a future purchase for sending in a quality action picture of a certain shirt/pant fabric to be added to the fabric listing if it doesn't already have one, the swatch pictures are nice but action pictures make it much easier to click the order button. something small $5-10 would be awesome.

    Clapey, it'd be interesting for me to know how tall the rear collar height is for your rear collar band height of 45mm.

    Also, what's the reason you went for the green collar (except for the rounded points), your favorite it seems, instead of the orange one that was recommended to you by the vast majority of people in your Oneshirt poll?

    Thanks!

    That would be good enough. I've specified this a couple times and my directions were always followed. But I wouldn't recommend no tie space unless your collar is wide spread to cutaway. More modest spreads need a little tie space so the the tie does not ride down throughout the day unless tightly cinched. I have a couple shirts without tie space and find them somewhat uncomfortable due to this issue.

    If I am trying to mimic the structure of my Brooks Brothers OCBD collars and cuffs, what would my instruction be? Medium weight fused lining?

    On 8th of January I put in an order for the Navy Chambray, however I expect the turnaround time to be slightly longer due to me having also ordered my first pair of Luxire jeans in 14.oz selvedge denim.

    Will provide pictures once they arrive.

    @luxire feel free to use any and all of the pictures, I've posted of your gear on my divine body, in this thread:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/lightbox/user/157592


    I've expected more from you as a fellow engineer, the scan of the collar represents a two dimensional vector space. You are given sufficient geometric entities with both their respective direction and magnitude to calculate every distance on the image by simple cross multiplication.

    The rear collar is 58mm high.

    as stated here:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/354972/das-oneshirt-poll-inside/0_100#post_6475462

    I prefer the green collar, especially when worn open. My first two shirts are both casual oxfords, the next shirt is navy chambray, as soon as I order a proper business shirt, I'll likely change the opening angle to 106° and lengthen the collar points.

    Soon I'll have my own collar series, just like @NOBD . All I need to do now is to come up with a catchy name.

    • The perfect curve collar- The perv collar.
    • The No Button Down collar or NO_BD collar.
    • DER KURVENHAIFISCHKRAGEN MIT HOHEM KRAGENBAND.

    Suggestions welcome...

    Clapey, you are awesome. Thanks for the scan and measurements.

    Also, I vote for the third naming option. Must be in all caps because, well, it's German.
