    When I saw the pictures of the fabric I had a feeling it wouldn't be shiny. Great for me 'cause this is for casual wear mostly.

    How do I describe a collar like this on my next order?
    I can't find the shirt without tie and jacket. The shirt is from Mattabisch by Kiton.

    Will the delivery time be extended if I select a custom collar?



    Edit: Would it also be okay to measure a nice-fitting shirt instead of measuring the body? I find it hard to measure my own body without a helping hand.

    Edit2: Also, how can this be armhole to armhole?
    Looks like shoulder blade to shoulder blade for me

    There will be a section for you to put notes in and you can give a link to the collar there

    You can also send them a shirt to replicate the measurements

    Dose it matter what they call it? Also, it's best to measure your best fitting shirt and make adjustments as necessary.

    I'm going to place mu order today, just was watching yesterday the "Vintage" shirts. I'm planning ordering a normal dress shirt, but can I was for the shrirring or that thing just in the shoulders?

    Very nice collar. I think to get the same results, not only do they need to copy the collar shape, but the roll you have has a lot to do with how the collar is constructed, lined, fused, etc.

    No, not really. But it confuses me when they say armhole and show something different.
    Okay, I have switched from body measurements to measuring my best fitting shirt. How do I measure the sleeve width and armhole? The details or the question mark says the same.
    Do I need to specify that, or do they figure it out?

    If you do not know the exact measurements and specs of the collar, the best they can do is replicate it as best as they can. You can't expect Kiton collar roll to be copied to a $70 shirt.

    Enjoy. It really is a great fabric/shirt for the pricepoint.

    Here are pics of my first shirt from luxire. I am satisfied with the construction and they followed measurements and specifications, but I think they mixed up my fabric selection. Anyways here goes...

    Hmmm, not sure I agree with you on that. I have two royal oxford black label shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt and they do not have a sheen and they are definitely formal. I do however have 4 Imperial oxford from Tywhitt and they do have a subtle sheen. The royal oxford swatch I have from luxire is pretty similar to the Tyrwhitt royal oxfords I have. I wish Luxire offered the Imperial oxford material because it is really nice and naturally wrinkle free but not cheap.

    Which fabric is that? Or what fabric did you think you ordered?
