    I'm about the same size as you and most of my shirts have a 15" neck.
    My button-down shirts that I like have 3" points with 1" front collar band height,
    and 1.25" rear collar band height. So, I also think you'll be safe with a BD collar
    with 3" points.

    +1. Luxire already seems to use them internally, I think they should just expose the codes to us as well (keeping the current descriptions is fine). BTW, for those wondering, you can get the code of all swatches I've seen by looking at the file name of the images. I use this technique when comparing with the swatch sheets.

    That's a great tip. Thanks! I requested a bunch of the new "Blue dress stripes" swatches with an order I placed in early January and included the URLs to differentiate them, but this would have been much better.

    How does it feel around the armhole? It looks like it might be a bit snug around there. If you want it trimmer in the waist, you can take in the side a bit and/or request to have more material taken in by the back darts, since the excess material is mostly along your lower back. Because of your erect posture, if you want it very clean in the torso you might want to try both. I would ask Luxire by email and see what they think.

    The back is billowing out and the sides can be taken in as well but depends on how you like your shirts.

    Thank you guys for the suggestions. The armholes feel ok. Do they look way off? I was thinking a little trimming around the back/waist was in order. Any other obvious changes? Thanks again!!

    How do I order swatches? Do I have to email Theresa for that?

    @radchad3 Across the back shoulders, and chest, everything looks really clean to me. The lines around the armhole in the front looked like it could be a bit tight,but if it feels comfortable to you then all is well. It's hard to tell these things from pictures.

    @PtrckHmphrys Each swatch is $1, so you just add the amount that corresponds to the number of swatches you would like via Additional Service. You put the names of the fabric swatches you want in the notes of your final order. (Although different fabrics can have the same name, which makes it tricky. It was pointed out earlier that you can identify the fabric number by the filename of the fabric image on Luxire's site.)

    Regarding the file names, which of these is the fabric number: GTZ45556_1024x1024.jpeg?v=1355860839?

    The GTZ part. If you look at some of the swatches in the thread you'll see those letters pop up.

    Wow! You guys are fit for CIA.

    The methodology would work for most fabrics. But, do not take it as the rule though.

    On our part, we will try and reduce the need for such investigative efforts.

    Grandi & Rubinelli fabrics look very good. These may finally hold the answer for me. The pale blue end-on-end might be the stuff of which One Shirts are made.

    Those Aurora oxfords and Superchic end on ends look lovely!
    Great idea to share entire sides of the fabric books.
