    A couple of questions:

    About how long does it take for a Luxire shirt and/or pants order?


    Is there anything between the semi-spread collar and the spear point collar?

    Wouldn't a smaller yoke reduce the back area? I agree with you about extending the armhole.

    Yeah, almost. But I did some changes with the shirt length (because I was customizing a dress shirt) and decreased the shirt length, it was the intention. The sleeve length ended up being maybe 0.5-1 inches too long, which is actually my fault, but everything else should be all right.

    How complicated is it to return the shirt and have it remade? I heard something about the Indians customs being strict or something.

    The chest measurement in a shirt is taken at the lowest point of the armholes.
    There is a significant part of your chest which lies above that point.
    My guess is that the width of said area between your shoulders and the chest is determined by the width of the yoke.
    The greater the yoke in the back the greater the front of the shirt in said area.

    I honestly don't really care about wait times as long as the quality is good like it is now. I've left a lot of tailors both online and B&M due to inconsistent quality.

    Luxire,

    Any plans to do sweaters at some point? If so, any timeline? Thanks.

    Luxire, any chance of adding some shirt fabrics like

    1. A mauve/light purple plain, e.g. royal oxford

    2. A white herringbone (current one is off-white)

    3. A sky/pale/light blue herringbone (standard one is more an oxford blue).

    None of the standard ones shown but can be ordered by choosing custom.

    I have a shorter neck, so I am experimenting with a curved collar as well, and smaller neck band. Should be interesting, Luxire is quite accommodating...

    Yes, that's great. Anything seems to be possible. Have you ordered it yet? And if so, what fabric did you choose?
