For those of us who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing we like:
Gonna hop on this awesome fabric really soon. Waiting on my first batch of shirts before ordering so I can perfect measurements though.
Nice. Poplins? Thread count?
Edit: Wait, did they get added to the site already? I think I see some, but not all?
Can you do detachable collar shirts? Need a tux shirt and just want one with a couple of collar choices.
Absolutely. We can make detachable collar shirts and also make extra collars.
Yes, all poplins. Some were added, more coming this week, hopefully.
The new fabrics look great. Tell me, how does the "Royal Oxford" range ( pink & blue eg http://luxire.com/collections/new/products/pale-pink-royal-oxford) compare to the standard oxford range? They both seem to be 80/2. What's the difference? Is it lighter/more breatheable? I find standard oxfords to wear pretty hot in the summer.
*edit: I should say that I do, of course, know what Royal Oxford is in general and have seen a few labelled as such, but just wondering how yours compares to your standard oxfords specifically.
Is this a fairly accurate representation of the colour of this fabric: http://luxire.com/collections/new/products/pink-linen-cotton-end-on-end ie sort of a peach?
How fast can your turnaround times be if someone is willing to pay a premium? IE - They need the shirt delivered to them at their doorstep in the next 10 days?
Currently, orders are being shipped in a week. So, an order placed today would be shipped by December 3rd and be delivered by December 5th. So, for 10 days delivery, no premium is required.
In general, if expedited shipping is chosen, the shirt can be shipped in 2 days.
luxire, could you at some point also offer large Tattersall checks? The best examples of these very British fabrics I've seen in Cordings' selection, but theirs is a huge fit. I won't be buying from them anymore, but I haven't found a new proper maker yet.
That's a beautiful pattern. Will keep an eye for it.
New Large Tattersall added:

I like this! Looking forward to more colour choices.
I got my RTW order today and managed to click a pic before ripping them out and trying them on:
My first thoughts are (note: I'm not an expert, but have a lot of buying experience - good and bad):
Fantastic material. Way, way, way beyond the pricing. The grey graph has lots of subtle detail and the white micro-stripe presents and feels rich.
I only had a minute to survey construction but everything looks top notch.The fit/seams for the shoulders, chest, sleeves, and collar is great.
The body is "classic" sized, which is gigantic on me (lucky drop 8), but I'm used to having to getting my sides slimmed and maybe some darts added.
Please don't raise your prices but, by way of comparison, if I got these at the same price as my discounted Borrelli's and Barba's, I'd still be happy. And to think, I got these at $24.99. For me, you could double the price and I'd still buy a dozen, get them trimmed locally and be thrilled.
I haven't seen any RTW deal this good, for quality this high, anywhere else - period. Don't offer these as a loss leader, you'll be bankrupt in 3, 2, 1...
I can't wait to get my MTM order together!
