    This exact thing happens on about half of my RTW shirts (a variety of brands, not Luxire) and I'd be interested to know what the source of the issue is - I have a feeling it's either too narrow a yoke or some quirk related to my posture. Am about to order a Luxire shirt so I'll see if this problem happens on their shirts and look to tweak future orders accordingly. By the way Benjamin, nice artwork if that's your own handiwork.

    Teresa or anyone else....when ordering chinos how do I specify if I want a jean style button closure at the waist? In other words, I don't want an overlapping tab.

    A website suggestion for the Luxire folks:

    You need a wish list option where a customer can save something to a wish list and keep it there until he's ready to order.

    Just make a Luxire bookmarks folder in your browser and save direct links to the stuff you want to order in the future.

    linen chambray shirt

    really happy with my fit right now, and now those aren't my nipples, was just lazy with the ironing.

    this one fits a little bit looser than my normal shirts.

    That's the same kind of fit I finally got right with the last oxford I got back from them. I found that what looked really good standing up was not so good sitting down for long periods of time at work.

    super fitted shirts aren't comfortable or practical, and look really disproportionate from any direction other than straight on looking in a mirror. it might look good in a magazine spread, but not in real life.

    ^ exactly, that's what I found when I first started getting MTM shirts about three years ago. I got them all made too tight - if you can't comfortably sit down without the fabric pulling and stretching around your waist, then it's definitely too tight.

    Great fit Teger!

    Have you thought about slightly reducing the shoulder width though?
    I like my shoulder seams to sit right on the tips of my collarbone, but that might not be for everyone.
