    Yes :) You can specify the second button position, we will place it exactly where you like it.

    The reason we do not say no is because we do not have a fixed process for anything. There are no templates and no blocks. Everything is done from scratch, based on what has been ordered.

    Okay, I am a little bit in love with this place having read all the glowing reviews in this thread. It's definitely encouraged me to take the leap into my first MTM shirt but I'm still learning about fabrics.

    What would be the best fabric for that classic staple: the formal white business shirt with a non see through + crisp but breathable material?

    Luxire - quick tip: include photos of materials on actual shirts or with something that provides a reference point for size. I'm getting closer to making my first order and am interested in some of the plaid/tartans, but without some idea of the size of the pattern, I can't really decide. If there were pics of them in use with actual shirts, it would make it a lot easier! I bet I'm not the only one thinking this...

    MTM is certainly the way forward. Expensive and slow were the term associated with custom made clothing earlier. Both terms are no longer applicable. The Lustrous fine white would be recommended for a start.

    You are certainly not the only one thinking about this as we think the same way too. We are taking photographs of shirts for the newer fabrics once they are made on order and adding to site.

    We had started creating shirt images digitally with the fabric but could not do it for all fabrics.

    Will get both these processes sped up for the stripes and checks to begin with.

    In the interim, do email us about the ones for which you would like better info. Will send them across.

    You should have added a photo of my shirt to your website, once it was completed. I wouldn't have had a problem with that.

    Hey guys it's nearly summer in Australia and I am looking to get a: ocbd in the windowpane (red and blue) as a casual shirt from you guys.
    The problem is none of my shirts are well fitting; also looking for a looser shirt as it is for casual wear and I am wondering how I would get 'true-body' measurements translated to the shirt?

    I just got the shipping confirmation for my first shirt, looking forward to it. I had a tight turnaround on my order and Luxire have delivered (or at least dispatched so far...)

    I have a question... how is Luxire pronounced. It's a small thing but its bugging me that I can't figure it out.

    We get to hear it in a lot of ways :) We pronounce it with the "Lux" from Luxury and "ire" from desire

    If you can send us an email, I would send you instructions about taking and sending body measurements.We would then use those to derive your shirt measurement.

    I'd definitely love some more striped fabrics, especially in irregular stripes. Other than that, just plotting my first order!

    My shirt arrived today. Haven't tried it on yet. As I'm out the door pretty much now, won't get a chance to until I get back.

    Thought I'd post a pic of my Luxire shirt in action. Soft, unlined collar with no stays. If I put the stays in, it sharpens up, but I like this look.
