    In the works but will take a couple of months. We do have the team ready, the website is holding us back.

    We need to launch pants first and then we will focus on women's shirts and possibly dresses.

    I was going to ask about this and thrilled that you're already pursuing it. If you can make trousers to spec (or near) with the quality of your shirts, I'll be sending you some to copy pronto!

    I have a suggestion that might assist some in deciding which fabrics to select.

    It's helpful with the images to include a finished shirt, or some other way to gauge the size of the patterns (gingham in particular, but also some of the stripes/plaids).

    For example, I was considering the classic blue white gingham, but after seeing the custom one a few pages ago, I've decided against it as I feel the size of the pattern is more on the casual side and I was looking for something closer to the size of the white black gingham pattern.

    Anyway, just thought it might help.

    As far as gingham colors go, the aforementioned blue in a smaller-size pattern as well as red, purple and brown would probably be ones I would be very interested in.

    I have one shirt and I'm going to order several more shortly. Very pleased so far with the quality and the fit.

    Any word on these new ones? Or just a description would do. I want to place an order but I'd like to see these first.

    Thank you Christopher.

    Absolutely agree with your suggestion. We are doing two things to add of shirt images to the site:
    1. Using a software to generate images of the shirt to reflect correct pattern size.
    2. Photographing shirts as and when they are made on order and then adding it to the site.

    We need to do these steps faster and more proactively than we have been doing so far.

    The classic Blue Gingham has been updated with a real shirt image.

    The navy Gigham is smaller in size than the blue, but slightly bigger than the black.

    Will let you know Razl when we are ready to make them. Quality wise there should be nothing to worry about. Like our shirts, the pants would stand their own among the best.

    Yes, have the scans ready for some and working on the upload. Hopefully later tonight we should complete a few. We added some a few hours ago.
    Do keep an eye on this page. New additions will first be seen here.

    nice! pants are always needed. My little brother has a 28" waist and chicken legs. hard to find pants for him.

    Have too many shirts myself unfortunately. But getting measurements from him and will place an order probably early next week.

    Finished shirt pics for Sky Blue Oxford, Sky Blue Summer and Blue Summer Oxford would really help me out :)

    The Sky Blue Oxford and Blue Summer Oxford product pages have been updated with real shirt images. Could not find any for the Sky Blue Summer. Will update when we make it the next time.

    Beautiful point collar on a Tuxedo style shirt

    Removable placket. Added a separate removable button for the collar, unique to Luxire, as far as I know :)

    I have another suggestion for the site:

    I think it would be great if when you sign into the site using your account, your measurements were stored so that if you wanted to purchase another shirt, you would go to the desired pattern page, click the 'add to cart' button, and the previous measurements would already be selected.

    You could then change whatever you wanted (in case some tweaking was required from the previous shirt, or you wanted to select a different collar or cuffs etc.),and if no changes were required, it wouldn't require filling everything in again.

    I have purchased one shirt (which I'm very pleased with) and am about to purchase several more, so thought that might be a great feature to offer returning customers.

    Thank you Christopher. Absolutely agree with your suggestion.
    We had commissioned a new website to be made that would have these features along with much more selectable customization options and an easier to use interface. We expected it to be ready by now but it seems to be another 3-4 weeks away.

    In the interim, you can skip the measurement part of the order form. Just let us know your previous order number from which you would like the measurements and any tweaks you would want.

    id like to see a few more collar options, perhaps with some dimensions, and also actual examples of that collar on a real shirt.
    some of the collars ive seen in this thread as well as the shirt porn thread are really nice, so it would be good to be able to choose them on the form
