Ok, I will email her with the list, as it seems, I wont be able to get all the swatches.
Pulled the trigger on a blue Oxford
Will be shipping them a shirt later today
If this turns out well ill be ordering a lot from you guys in the future
Just got my second shirt from Luxire. Fits pretty damn well IMO, doesn't hurt to get some other eyes on it though. Anything look off? Thanks.
Longer tail (if it's gonna be worn tucked/assuming based on the striped fabric)
I think it fits really well. Just a little tight in the chest.
I'd say 1cm or more added on the armpits, 1.5cm added on the chest and maybe 2cm reduced in lower back, or darts. And talk to Theresa about all of that.. she may indicate something about the creases from the neck to the armpit. I had the same thing and it's fixed now, thanks to her.
But that looks really good.
My shirts just shipped. I ordered them FIVE DAYS AGO.
They need to give me time to get a paycheck between ordering.
I'm a bit disappointed at Copper Chino fabric. It feels kind of papery and creases easily. I haven't worn the pants yet (since it's still winter here), only tried them on but I've washed them two or three times in order to soften the fabric. Unfortunately nothing seems to happen.
All the stitching details on the pants are very nice. However, the measurements are a bit off.
Some pics of my pants were posted here earlier: http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/...g-official-affiliate-thread/1065#post_6070426
scrolls, I like everything about the shirt (assuming it is worn untucked) except for the chest area.
Not only you definitely need to have the chest measurement increased - the shirt is stretching even when you stand straight and there is no execess fabric in the back when you hold you arms straight in front of you - but I would also am worried about the wrinkles around thaht area.
There was a post of either voxsartoria or Shirtmaven which suggested it could mean that either shoulders, yoke and/or collar are off.
Can't seem to find it at the moment though, sorry.
Thanks all. Theresa actually PMed me and said they will increase the shoulder slope on my next shirt and that will fix those creases up around my shoulders. Also going to make the chest a little roomier and add some to the length.
I'd add darts in the back if it were me. It billows too much for my taste. It'll give a more "V" or tapered look.
I actually did end up telling Theresa to reduce the lower back width. Currently don't own any darted shirts and can't decide if I like them or not.
For custom printing of pocket squares:
Below are some of the images from the printed stock samples fabric we had. Will post more as the ordered prints get done.

Got some denim today, 4 types of 100% cotton in 11 to 13.5 oz. Another 2 types in 3.5 & 5 oz for shirts. Spring is almost here and its time to unlock some street-wear fun. Japanese selvedge coming soon too.
For the denim, we would like to know your preferences. We know that selvedge is loved and cherished. Apart from that, what would your wishlist be - for finishing options, garment options, denim color options, denim type options and denim weight options ?
I just had a great conversation on the phone with Ashish of Luxire last night, and I have to say I'm super impressed and excited by the things that appear to be on the horizon for the company. A one-stop site for everything a man might need for his wardrobe, with attention to detail formerly reserved only for expensive bespoke, and at prices comparable to, or even lower than, department store OTR.
I must say, the shirt I have from Luxire has quickly made its way to the top of my shirt rotation...
