    Interesting. I have a BB one that's ok, but would be interested in replacing/supplementing it as I wear it every few months and it would be nice to have one that fit a bit better than off-the-rack.

    I have a disproportionately large neck (which is what has driven me to MTM in the first place) and this replaces a shirt I've had for almost fifteen years. It was the last RTW shirt in my closet because I use it so infrequently, but at Luxire's prices, I couldn't resist.

    That's not too bad a turnaround time. I ordered on the 26th, and was told that the shirts would only be shipped next week. Quite a wait. Hopefully my next order will be quicker.

    Customer service has thus far been nothing short of astounding, though. Theresa has been amazingly accommodating and willing to help and answer any questions.

    Woo! I put my first ever MTM order through yesterday! Two white shirts to start with - the lustrous fine white and the white twill. Thanks for answering all the questions here. Looking forward to getting my hands on them very soon [​IMG]

    Does anyone know how to properly do the bicep measurement? The picture doesn't show how far from the shoulder you're supposed to do the measurement, and depending where you take it to, it changes it a lot.

    I based my measurement on the image they supply on their measurements page:

    So it turns out it is perpendicular to the outer arm (top)... which wasn't specified on the website.

    Just buying my shirts now, hope they fit well :)
    P.S.
    When you use custom measurements you choose 'custom' as the fit, right?

    That's what I did. Wouldn't make sense otherwise to pick a fit if you've also given exact measurements, right? ;)

    Don't worry, I had the same thoughts haha.

    Thoughts on my first experience thus far (having put an order in on 9 Nov):
    - It's concerning that Luxire replies quicker to inquiries on Styleforum than to those made through the 'contact us' tab on their own website. Still waiting on my inquiry but I've already put my order through. Next time I'll be asking questions here.
    - I ordered two shirts and put individual measurements through for both but then got an email two days later saying their system had 'failed to capture order details' for one of the shirts. That's worrying about an online MTM shopping experience which is built around accuracy! Also makes me wonder why they'd let someone proceed with an order if no measurements have been captured. Something to fix methinks.

    Don't get me wrong, by all accounts Luxire seems to be providing a great service at real value but thought I'd pass on my feedback :)

    If I owned Luxire, I'd be more proactive in contacting my customers still waiting for shirts during a period of excessive workload. I'd want to reassure them that their order is okay, that we're just a little behind, and provide them with an updated estimate.
