I just recieved my first Luxire shirt today, order placed 11/13. The fabric and construction seem to be well worth the price. I look forward to gradually replacing my current shirts with more Luxire models.
I took some quick fit pics of the shirt (click to enlarge). I was going for a slim fit look. I was hoping to get some feedback and suggestions as to how I could dial in the fit going forward. At first glance I notice the bunch behind the armpits and maybe some excess fabric in the waist/hip areas. Thanks much
People at Luxire; what are your favourite fabrics and what are your favourite shirts from Luxire? Would be great if you posted your favourite shirt itself
Got mine and they fit excellently! Gonna place a bulk order tonight or on friday night!
Fun browsing the Luxire site looking for a favourite. Each fabric is hand-picked and has a story behind it. My only Luxire shirt is the Luxire Gold White With Blue Stripes and love it(Got it made to photograph the handwork package )
Knowing what I know, if they give me one coupon for a free shirt, I would take the Monti White Dobby Stripes. It is an amazing fabric.
The cotton-silks have received wonderful reviews. Will try one of those post Christmas.
Among the Blues, the Micro herringbone is special.
But before I get a shirt, they want me to get a flannel night-dress so that it can be photographed. That would be my Christmas gift, I guess
Unfused Collar on the Pale Blue End-on-End
No collar stays used in the image, just natural fall.
The Blue Navy White Grey Checks
One-piece, Unlined Collar, Short sleeve - Camp Shirt
Muave Blue Lime Checks 140/2
Nice Collar and Cuff - Again, no collar stays - The curved English collar
I like the curved collar - may do that my next order.
Fused English Collar on the Navy Chambray
What do you call that style of cuff? Is there extra fusing in the collar? Are there special care instructions to maintain that curve?
The Collar is the Luxire Curved English Collar. The curve is natural and would retain its shape for the life of the shirt. No extra care required. Standard fusing used.
The cuff is the Luxire Point-French-cuff
Just ordered my first shirt last night in this fabric which I'm definitely looking forward to.
The only issue I've run into is the collections are starting to look a bit messy at the bottom of the page and multiple filters would go a long way in helping me remember which of the many fabrics I was looking at before. Not enough to deter, but it would be a nice improvement.
Anyone have any feedback/suggestions about my recent order posted above?
^Sleeve length and girth, fit on wrists and sleevehead height as well as fit on torso all seem fine, but the shirt's shoulder seams droop below your shoulder blades. It would also benefit from darts on back. If you wear this blue one with a sweater or under a jacket, the shoulder fit is not a problem.
