    I don't think I've seen something like that before. Could post a photo of it?

    A very light shade of cream. It is almost white.

    Thanks, I actually did a search on the internet and found an exameple of one in navy colored material which looked similar to this one. Looks like an interesting alternative to linen and I wouldn't have thought of this on my own if I hadn't seen your post on yesterday.

    I'm wondering though if Luxire could put a bit of structure into the collar though. Most probably they can.

    I haven't seen anyone ask: Luxire, can you do women's? And if so, what would be the cost of a suit jacket + skirt? My wife has a helluva time finding a jacket that fits (she literally never has), and has to wear a suit regularly for court. What about for a skirt by itself? Accompanying question: are there plans for suiting fabrics that are more "base" than just the dugdale?

    Many thanks

    Is there a difference? Which one is Luxire going to offer? Just curious...

    There are significant differences, knitted with be more like you polo shirts.

    We will offer the knitted ones for now. Have been on the lookout for the woven ones too but they have been elusive so far.

    Luxire, that old shirt of mine was a lucky find on eBay. It feels very much like the pique used on most polo shirts, flexible and nearly wrinkle-free without chemicals. It has a fused construction, though, and I'll sell it onwards once I've bought replacement shirts from you.

    Yeah, I assumed that you were mostly talking the polo kind from the earlier posts...that's okay. I still think it might work for constructing a formal shirt though if you're willing to do it. My only only question would be on how to incorporate a modest amount of structure in certain key places like collars and cuffs and plackets.

    I received my Classic Blue Oxford and Tuxedo Shirt today. Luxire nailed the measurements on both. I love the fabric on the oxford and the split yoke was a pleasant surprise. I'll probably have to order the full range of white, pink, and gray OCBDs to round out my untucked shirt choices. Then on to some of the linen shirts. The pleat front on the tuxedo shirt seems well done also.

    But since they absolutely nailed the measurements, can anyone confirm from experience that their shirts haven't shrunk? I sized based on where I'd like the shirts to end up when fully shrunk. I'm aware that the fabric is pre-washed, just hoping for some confirmation.

    Not sure that dry cleaning counts in regards to shrinkage, but I've had my warzone white ocbd cleaned several times already and no shrinkage that I can detect.
