    Nice.

    Another thing you could try is reducing the gauntlet to a length of around the gauntlet button and removing that button. That's what I've done for all 10 of my Luxire shrits and I love it. Makes getting ready easier, even if it's just that little bit. My gauntlets are around 4" and they don't look weird, they look great. Maybe more of a tell-tale sign that it's custom. It cleans up the sleeve a lot.

    This is if you can get your arm in your sleeve with the gauntlet closed right now.

    Do you mean reducing the length of the gauntlet such that the gauntlet button is not needed? I guess this would be reducing the length of it by about half.

    Are you still able to roll your sleeves? Very important :), especially when it comes to linen.

    Was channeling you when I posted my "dry cleaning" picture.

    Sure am. Its tighter but that works for me, doesn't fall down. Try it on one shirt to see if you like it.

    I need more linen. I ordered one and waited a week and a half for Luxire to tell me they haven't started as they are out of it.. boo. Oh well.

    I saw that one. :cheers:




    I don't think it would work on any of my shirts, except for maybe a few that have sleeves that are much too wide. : ) I'm talking about a real, past the ellbow, roll.

    I just received my first shirt from Luxire. The fabric and the buttons are great, but it didn't fit right.
    The funny thing is that I used the same measurements as an OCBD shirt that fits me, but the shirt from Luxire ends up being too tight in the chest area and the bottom. Anyone why? Is it because of the different kind of fabrics?

    I would measure the one from Luxire. If the measurements aren't the same as the ones you gave, problem solved. [​IMG] There might be the possibility that the way you measure it's different than the way they do.

    Quote:Gotcha. I'm not a fan of the past-elbow roll so it works for me. To each his own. Your shirts look great.

    Welcome. Random thought: for a moment I thought I read you username as "Catriona Matthews" the LPGA golfer. Haha sorry about that.

    I just measured the one from Luxire and my other Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt. Here are the measurements (Yeah, I am skinny):
    [​IMG]
    pre-#3543 (should be #3453) is my measurements before I ordered the shirt, while GBV is the shirt I measured for pre-#3543. As you can see, the Luxire shirt and the pre-shirt differentiates a little bit from my GBV shirt, but that's not a lot. It's only a half inches in some places, how could the shirt from Luxire be skin tight while GBV fits? As you can see the chest width is the same in those three examples, but that's where the Luxire shirt is at the tightest.

    Don't know what may be happening there, then. [​IMG]

    A smaller yoke and higher armhole could definitely influence the fit of the chest.

    Were the measurements on the Luxire shirt supposed to be exactly the same as your GBV shirt? If so, they seriously messed up....sleeve length is a full 2 inches too short? That would render a shirt completely unwearable for me, you should return it and have it remade.
