    I was going to order a OCBD too and just wondering, what did you ask for your collars? I was thinking unfused and unlined but I'm not too sure.

    My pants just came in. Quick shot: [​IMG]

    Impressed with the quality of fabric, seams, buttons etc so far. Can't wait to try them on tonight. Will post fit pics soon.

    Also, new PS

    I have a rule of always having a order running at Luxire.

    Have anyone addressed this issue? I drew some arrows on the picture. The black one is the reason, I think - forward shoulders. The red one is compression and blue the tension that is created in this case. It happens to my every shirt. Can luxire advice anything?
    Sorry for the engineering approach

    Edit:
    Another thing, didn't want to create second post. The biggest issue I find about ordering anything more from Luxire is how to choose proper color, make sure it is compared to how it looks in the photo. Have a good description of the 'feel' of the fabric. I'd love to have a set of, say, pant fabric samples. One should estimate the price and why not buy something like to this if you know you're going to place more orders in the future? Is it even possible? What do you think?

    Yes. The amount of time people spend obsessing over button-down collar design is ridiculous. It's not rocket science.

    That's why I even pleated my denim ;)

    Nice. But you opted for belt loops and suspender buttons? Isn't that overdoing it?

    And I thought I read somewhere that the suspender buttons have to be further to the side than that picture shows.

    I think there's a rule against things going on in denim. It's nice to experiment but I always thought denim should look like denim. Not pleated, cuffed, etc. But like I said, to each his own.

    The extra fabric just below the neck at the back is an easy fix by itself.

    Your approach and analysis makes sense.

    Adjustments related to shape of shoulders or any other fit issue is best addressed by looking at images of how the Luxire shirt fits. It gives us the idea of how to shape the yoke or what to change on the pattern for the next iteration.

    Part 2 of your question:
    I read a couple of times but was not able to bring myself to understand it. Please elaborate.

    Meh, you shouldn't live by each and every rule all the time. As long as you're aware of the rules and know how to dress accordingly, you can get away with breaking one every now and then.

    no belt loops (actually, the one on the left is not supposed to be there, but I didn't clearly tell Luxire):

    Will try to write a review soon, first impression is great.

    Is that a sort of self-belt? Or does it just close on the side? Either way, it looks great! Mind giving your order number? It's got me thinking, I might just order my next Luxire trousers with a self-belt, if they're capable of making that.
