    Well first shirt came in today. Way too tight all over. I love the button/button hole combo they just seem to fit right. Also the collar turned out right.

    Key problems:

    -way to tight in the arm hole openings its pulling the whole shirt.

    -A bit too tight on the sleeves width, might need another 1/4" in sleeve length too

    -needs to be let out in the waste, and I am not sure If I got a measurement mixed up or if something was messed up on there end but the hips need to be let out like 4", they are slimmer than the waste.

    -The one that I don't really know how to fix is the back of the shirt I seem to have a C shape pull going from shoulder to shoulder running along the yoke about an inch back of the collar (at the center) and ending at the front of the shoulders. I tried showing it in pic 3 but its a but tricky.

    finally shirt is about 2-3" too long imo.

    What do you guys think?

    imo, front/back chest too tight. Why don't you xref the measurements you provided vs. the actual shirt? Take a seat. If your buttons are gaping, then "WAIST" :)D) is too tight.

    its funny they dont really gape at the waste when I sit but its hard to tell because I can't close the bottom button (or two if they are over a pair of jeans)

    question? Where do I find the measurements I gave them? I was looking if I had a profile or something on the site but I can seem to find it.

    I just got a denim jacket and a pair of grey flannel pants. Pleased with the jacket. Pants have to go back (long drawn out story that I won't get into). I just wanted to mention to anyone thinking of ordering the 99.99 flannel pants. They are incredibly thick. Think of material used for an overcoat. These pants are thicker than all of the other tweed, donegal, wool and other winter weight pants I own. This is great for some, not so great for others.

    Nobody has, I guess? I hate to be the guy who bumps his own post like this, but final sale is final sale.

    have you looked at their size chart? presumably you can compare these to whatever shirts you have that fit the way you like. the size measurements look like pretty full-fitting shirts, at least for me.

    Wow, can't believe I missed that size chart. I'd agree, those are some pretty large numbers. Oh well.

    Just got my latest order. The 16 ounce cavalry twill fabrics make up into a very nice pair of trousers. I'll try to post pictures at some point when I get them back from being pressed. Looking forward to trying the new flannels as well.

    Not sure if anyone on here can answer this but what do you do when you get something made that does not fit? Is there a process to start up to modify my existing patter or do I just try again and order another shirt with different measurements?

    You can send it back with what you want changed but you have to pay shipping, which I think is absolutely silly. I sent in a shirt with minor adjustments to be made and it came back but the arm holes were to tight. I didn't bother sending it back so I"ll get it altered locally when I get around to it.

    Why is it silly? If you asked for the wrong measurements, but they executed it correctly, that's on you, thus you pay shipping to get it fixed.

    So I read on this thread with someone talking about 200$ approx for pants and 400/450 for Jacket - basically putting a Fresco Suit at around 600/650$.
    What are your thoughts on that? Assuming that you ask them to "not do" the button holes and get that done locally?

    Refined in what terms? Fit, Stitch, Button hole issue? What are the pieces missing - FEEDBACK for them and for us to know what can be improved.

    So any try their clearance shirts?

    table21, first check your emails, your order confirmation lists all the measurements you gave to Luxire.
    Second, wash and measure your shirt, has Luxire followed the measurements you gave them correctly? Well, in case so, it's not their fault the shirt does not fit you.
    If not, you can contact Theresa and discuss what you options are.

    As for your shirt, obviously you need a greater bottom width, other from that it seems you have too little fabric in the back of the chest and waist.
    I can't comment on the height of the armhole, you need to know yourself whether or not you can move around as freely as you want to.
    As for the sleeve length and width, I would keep it as it, but I like my sleeves to drape with as little break as possible and thus shorter and tighter than most others.

    Luxire, I would like to learn about the means you have got to account for forward sloping shoulders.
    I feel most people nowadays have forward sloping shoulders and definitely do I.
    What do I need to expect from a shirt that account for it?
    A differently cut yoke, different shoulder seems, a different shape of the armhole?

    Besides a red oxford shirt I decided to go crazy with the collar of a Easy-to-Iron Blue Chambray Shirt:

    One-piece button-down collar inspired by a Gulielminotti-collar

    I don't see the part where you button it down, though? Looks good, I have the same cloth swatch sitting here and decided it was too pink for me. I might have opted for longer collar points and a button down function.

    I like the way the sewed on your buttons.
