    I like how that button stands up. It doesn't fall down or anything. That's how buttons should be.

    Wow, that looks excellent, Ashish. The shoulders, sleeve head, lapels, swelled chest all look really, really good. Uh oh, ditto to Betelgeuse's being in trouble...

    We still need to work on the pricing. Tentatively, a jacket like this, structured, in linen, would be $500.

    Unstructured cotton ones will start at $300

    That should warrant a rethink :)


    Yes, shaped up well. Done by hand, silk thread, horn buttons.

    Thank you m. The last few jackets made have been satisfactory and getting better. Co-incidentally, your's is next :)

    If it's not then someone ordered the exact same jacket as I did, which would be proof of their good taste I suppose! [​IMG]

    Price is not bad at all! [​IMG]

    Planning next shirt order... already done a few collar specs for next shirt order. NOBD gave me the idea. [​IMG] Can you give them a quick look and tell me if with those measurements is sufficient or I'll need to add some other to get the collar right?

    I have two shirts from Luxire. For my second shirt, I asked Luxire to replicate the measurements from my first shirt, as I'm reasonably happy with the fit. However, when I got the second shirt, I noticed that it was noticeably tighter in the chest and had higher cut armholes, which I think is weird. The shirt is wearable, but not as comfortable as the first shirt. Has anyone else experienced the same, and is this just to be expected with different fabrics?

    Experienced this with multiple shirt makers. Each tailor cuts slightly differently and sews slightly differently and that can create small variations. Also each fabric makes up slightly differently. Combined these can create exactly what you just described.

    Sky blue summer chambray. Just ordered one shirt to ensure that the fit is right. From there, I'll be ordering a variety of staple blue shirts, some oxfords, ginghams, stripes, checks.

    Linen SC looks great. How much handwork is involved?

    What should I request, as far as fusing/lining is concerned, if I want a slightly structured collar. But not like the default Luxire stiff collar. Would I need to ask for lightly lined, but no fusing?

    Is there a certain way that Luxire recommends measuring a shirt? I am trying to make sure the fit translates well.

    Also, can one specify very square shoulders or neck forward?

    I didn't saw that of the type of shoulders. [​IMG]

    Question: If I have sloping shoulders... how will that affect the shoulder to shoulder seam measurement?

    Thanks for the link Louis.

    BG - I don't think it will affect the seam to seam measurement as much as it dictates the placement of the armholes. I am not an expert on this, so please take this with a grain of salt.


    To those who have gotten well fitted shirts, are you taking body measurements or previous shirt measurements?

    And could someone explain the basic collars that Luxire offers - are they super stuff/fused, etc.?
