    Just got my G&R shirts from the Black Friday sale. The oxford is really fine for an oxford, almost broadcloth-like. With all the comments about wrinkles I was starting to regret my choices, but now that I have the shirts they seem really quite nice. Will take better pictures later after I wash and iron them.

    @EFV @bleu It's version 2 of my BD with 3.75in points. I might tweak the button placement slightly but I like the proportions.

    Shawn, depending on where you're based, I looked into similar slippers a while back and found a place online that does custom monogramming and manufactures for a lot of the well-known shoemakers (some v high end). They were pretty open on this as I asked them where I could try them on, and they would probably be cheaper direct. If you're interested i'll dig out the details and PM you. I'm going to pull the trigger on some this year.

    Edit: should have said, i'm UK.

    Yes, I was happy with the result.

    @Dachshund thanks for the tip! Actually, I'm still okay with my current slippers for now, but I'll be on the lookout for when this pair dies! Thanks!

    I am assuming you lowered it? What did it change (feel/fit-wise)

    Yeah, I think the yoke height was over 4" and I cut it down by about half...IIRC. It cleaned up the back at the arm seam a bit and just feels better.

    I just received my first shirt from Luxire and I'm very pleased with the fit with one caveat... When I put my arms directly in front of me with my palms facing the ground the shirt pulls across my back right under my armpit and I feel like I am going to rip it...I took the chest measurements from a shirt that doesn't pull across the back so I'm not sure what could be causing it.Has anyone experienced this? The only solution I can think of is to increase the chest measurement.

    @emptym thanks for the advice on collar lining it turned out great.

    You should probably post a picture. Also, consider whether that is a movement that you are often likely to make while wearing a dress shirt (e.g. I infrequently shoot hoops in a collared shirt so I don't have my shirts cut with that function in mind).

    I don't understand what we're talking about here. (Sorry :)). Can you illustrate?

    Shoot! Just went in to order some VBC pants only to find that the discounted prices expired. Oh well, my wallet will thank me.

    Fantastic additions @luxire ! Unfortunately for me, I return from holiday the day after the sale ends. Always one step ahead of me! [​IMG]

    It is still a very good deal. VBC makes some really good cloth.

    Was reading about them in blogs here and here.
