I like most the left and middle one from the bottom row.
Would you share some specifications?
What would you like to know?
What mill(s) are they of?
What's their weight?
How thick a warp and weft (are they called like that too for denim fabrics?) is been used? The bottom center one definitely looks more rough-textured than the bottom left one, which I think is influced by the thickness of the yarn used to weave the fabric.
Any information about stretch? There are definitely fabrics which stretch more than others.
Sounds good, I'll most likely order a casual shirt with a crest once I've received my second shirt. How would I go about paying for a shirt with a crest? Separate transaction after the initial shirt order once you've figured out how much it'll cost to make? Or should I place the entire order via email and get a price quote?
Anyone have advice for which fabric to order for staple white buttondowns? Happy to field suggestions for both oxford and twill fabrics. Looking at the $70ish fabric area.
Here's a few shirts I got recently in preparation for the summer, two seersuckers from fabric I bought at a local store and a Luxire Belgian linen:
Warzone White Oxford (none plus)
Looking to try a custom shirt from Luxire as an alternative to Modern Tailor. Can anyone who has tried both comment?
Also, I can't seem to find what the shipping cost to the U.S. is, even after reading thoroughly that section in the FAQs. Am I to assume that the cost is $20, even though the shipping to Canada is free??
Shipping to the US is free.
I have had both. I liked my MT shirt for going out, but after about five washes it kind of started falling apart.
My luxire oxford (Tri-colored stripe) on the other hand is at about 10 and now extremely comfortable.
Better value on the fabrics from Luxire too.
Cool, thanks, guys.
One more question -- I have a neck that falls between 16.5 and 17, but looks like you have to choose one or the other when ordering. Do they really not let you customize the neck measurement?
Chuck it in the notes and they'll do it; my experience for whatever is in the notes. Though every now and then they might forget something but usually really minor things.
Yes, notes are your best friend for all custom requirements. Since adding the notes window tot he fabric choice option itself, the misses have been close to zero and getting better.
BTW, for neck and most other choices, we do have quarter inch jumps for measurements. Should be able to order 16.75
The current lot of denim are from Arvind Mills.
Made of 100% cotton which includes some % of organic cotton as well.
Weight: between 11 and 13.5 oz. Will add individual weight and possibly warp-weft info with individual fabric images
In what parameter do I give you the stretch?
None of them are actually rough textured. The bottom one is the lightest and the one above it is the softest. The one on the top right has small white dots and feels very good too. We are making a sample in it which should be ready the coming week.
Overall, these are excellent everyday denim, custom made at $79.99
