    Is there any way to quantify it like a certain ammount, or do I just type "slimmer forearms" and you'll know what to do?

    Today I received Luxire's chambray shirt, my first made of this fabric. I picked the summer weight one, with no non-iron treatment. Everyone should have one: chambray is smooth, very strong, with an interesting, cool, loose weave. Highly recommended.

    Which color? Would it be possible to get some pictures of the fabric in some nice lightning? Would highly appreciate it as I'm thinking about picking it up.

    You can say "Reduce forearm by 1.5 inches"

    In general, the instructions can be very specific: Increase the front of the shirt, from 3" below the armpit to the waist by 0.75" and reduce the back of the shirt, 5.5" below the waist to 3.25" above the bottom by 1.75"

    I have a question for Luxire regarding the making of suit jackets (structured and / or unstructured) for their existing shirt/trouser customers. Will Luxire be able to fabricate suit jackets from their customers known shirt measurements? Or would there be a modicum of additional information required such as what off the rack size they typcially where and from what makers (I've found that an American 40S is not the same as a euro 40S but it is about the same for a British cut 40S).

    The war green chino fabric is excellent! Sturdy but soft enough to be very comfortable.

    Happy to help, here is the fabric in snowy Finnish sunlight:

    From afar is looks like plain light blue, up-close it's a different animal. It's this one on Luxire's site:

    http://luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/sky-blue-summer-chambray

    I was surprised how strong the weave is, it really does not stretch at all, and yet is open enough to let air flow freely. I'll be writing about the weave soon on my site.

    Is Luxire planning on making matching suit jackets from these same materials?? Most the swatches I see on the website look like that would be quite possible if not desirable. I could easily see all three of the ones posted here being a complete suit.

    These are 3 of the 51 we added this morning. There are a lot of other fabric options we can offer for suits. For now, we recommend that the customer send us a jacket to copy measurements.

    Other options are being worked on.

    sending an expensive suit jacket is a lot riskier than a single shirt for replication.

    Quote: Recently sent almost $1k of stuff without a problem. Only real concern would be how you ship it to Luxire in NJ.

    One cm extra for the collar seems like it would be awfully snug, no?

    It does, doesn't it. I think that measurement must be slightly off (measured from lower down on my neck perhaps) because 40cm seems to be ok in practice. Perhaps I'll add 0.5cm though. *Sigh* this is a tricky business...
