It's made-to-measure. They can go as slim as you want.
Thank you prozach1576. We are glad that you like the shirt. Will review the way we do button-holes on oxfords.
Many of our fabrics have excellent wrinkle performance. We have still not marked those accordingly on the website though. some of them are listed below.
For the longer term, we are taking a different approach to wrinkle-free. Currently working with a finishing house to create a green process for treating the shirts after they are made. Once we have the tests completed, we will be able to offer any fabric in normal and wrinkle-free finishes.
We are still a couple of months away from the launch though.
In the interim, these wold look perfect after a light iron and would be wearable straight out of the dryer.
I would love to see this classic gingham in some more colors (red, purple, etc.): http://luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/blue-white-gingham
Will be on the lookout for some more of the ginghams including the ones in these colors.
Feedback we received from a customer:
Are there any fit comparisons to your standard sizes? Like BB for example?
Yes, our regular fit is similar in size to BB regular, our slim to their slim and our SuperSlim to their SuperSlim
We do have a size chart here http://custom.luxire.com/pages/how-to-measure , under standard sizes.
Black-Red Graph Checks, Nice with a tie, nice without. A good all week shirt.
Nice shirts. Will get some next month
Just came across the image below in the LondonLounge forum. In the good old days, the shirt body and the sleeves were made separately. Then they were attached together, keeping the fit in mind. Now a days, sleeve seams and body seams are stitched in one go.
The video below shows how about 99.99999% modern shirts are made.
Luxire Custom shirts are made the traditional way. As in the images of the blue shirt, the sleeve seam and body seam are not aligned. The reason is that they are made separate and then attached together.
The biggest advantage of this is that it does not pull out the tucked shirt when the arm is raised. It also eliminates the diagonal creases at the top of the sleeve, which is omnipresent in almost all shirts we see.
It takes hours to make the seams in this manner, while the modern way takes less than a minute. No wonder this technique is used in less than 1 in a million shirts!
The body seam and sleeve seam end up at separate points under the arm. Also look at the detailed finishing, standard on all Luxire Custom Shirts.
An under-construction shirt, with one sleeve attached and another ready for attachment....and the video of its attachment.
Thank you so much for sharing, it's material and info just like this that endears me to affiliates.
I'm still foot dragging on my first order. But rest assured, it's coming!
I got my second shirt today and am just as impressed as I was with the first one.
Blue Gingham with monogrammed white gussets.
Which particular shirt is this on your site? The stripes seem wider than pencil stripes, which I am looking for. Will be ordering shortly.
The blue fabric is the Blue Royal Oxford
The collar and cuff inside are Black-White Gingham
Thank you for your query Steveoly.
