    Difficult to say but did not get that feeling in the emails exchanged.

    Good timing, I'm interested in getting a women's trenchcoat for my fiance as well. It's been tough for her to fit Burberry OTR, and there's no way we're going to afford their Bespoke/MTM service.

    I don't see any examples on your website of either men's or women's trenchcoats. I think people here would be interested if you posted some pictures here on the forum.

    I don't know if you have noticed their signature, but it is: "Tell us what you need and we will make it for you"
    Do you want a trench coat equal to a Burberry one with eight red belts around the chest and a monogram of a dildo on the back? Done.
    Do you want a waist long trench coat in green with blue belts and white arms? Done.

    There are however some pictures of a coat some pages back.

    Edit: Found them.

    I think the collar looks fantastic. Sleeves and cuffs are a little too full and too long for you. Easily corrected.

    2.5"?! More like 1" max IMO. Remember that sleeves may shrink a bit after washing them a couple of times.

    2.5 - WTF? He'll look like this:

    Op should definitely measure, wash, and remeasure to account for shrinkage and then communicate that for future orders (as different fabrics may have different pre-shrunk characteristics) .

    I should note that I'm a nut about my sleeves being long enough. If I have to err, I'd rather then be a bit too long than a bit too short. I've tossed great shirts that I loved because sleeves were .25 too short and it just bugs me.

    Thanks. Has anybody here had success in getting different shoulder slopes and stances with Luxire? I didn't see this in their online options. With shirts it's good to have the options. With suits, blazers, and coats, it's an absolute must if your shoulder is not "typical".

    I think the problem with those sleeves is width and cuff size, not length. I'd reduce the width and cuff measurements by half an inch each and see what happens. But I also tend to err on the side of longer sleeves.

    Fit in the stomach, waist, and chest looks great. I can't quite tell where the shoulder seam is sitting in that picture - it's probably good but possible you could reduce the yoke by a quarter or half inch.

    That collar is great.

    Sorry, was not clear. Shorten sleeve lengths by 1", get shorter cuff height next time (probably 2.5') Can't tell for sure, but current cuffs look to be 3" in height.

    The sleeves don't look that long to me - especially in the pic with the jacket. There's not an excessive amount of shirt cuff showing past the jacket sleeves. If you shortened the shirt sleeves by even 1 inch, your jacket sleeves will be longer than your shirt sleeves.

    Like others have said, I think it had not to do with the width of the sleeves and cuff.

    The collar looks fantastic! If you don't mind sharing: what length are the points? How tall? What is your neck size? Spread and tie gap?

    I'll do my best to find my DSLR and get some better pictures. Someone stuck it in storage during a move.

    Thanks. Would be great with fit and shoulder shoots too. Looks like you got a similar trenchcoat that I got from Indochino (love the blue). It was steal during their fall sale last year at $179! Their current season's trenchcoats are on for $329. Wish they did women's wear. Either way, a lot better deal than what I can get from Burberry.

    Royal oxford is supposed to have a sheen as well as a more luxurious drape and feel to them. The material definitely doesn't seem to be suited for formal wear.

    Thanks for all the comments, very helpful! Most of them confirm what Luxire has recommended.

    On the washing: I thought all Luxire's fabrics were pre-washed thus should not shrink much anymore? I did not take further shrinking in account.

    On sleeve lenght: I agree with you. I find sleeve lenght fine as it is. Would I get them shorter they'd disappear totally when I bow my arms. I'd rather have them too long than too short.

    That is exactly what we decided on the cuffs. I don't think the cuff is too long but they are too wide (talking circumference). Luxire recommended reduction by 0.25 inch.
    I don't know the exact measurements and seeing how bad I am at measuring I'd rather quote what I ordered:

    Same collar as in order No. 3183. The neck size 15.75 inches.

    Anybody encounter this problem with their shirts? A small bump of fabric under the rear of their collar. Pretty common issue but I'm not quite sure how to remedy it for the next order.

    You take photos and show it to Theresa or whomever is doing support now. She offers a suggested change, you agree or disagree, and you try again. Basically, she's pretty good at figuring out "how much" and "where at". Trust her, but do some measurements for yourself as well to confirm.
