Let the majority speak...
+1 on mill info please
First shirt arrives Monday, can't wait to see it!
The site uses shirt measurements but I emailed them and received instructions on how to use body measurements.
Just purchased a navy chambray shirt. Theresa was really helpful and replied to all my messages extremely quickly.
Dude. Buy the shirt, don't buy the shirt. Who cares if its from a Thomas Mason mill.
Almost all the shirts are priced to move around SEVENTY dollars with ZERO additional shipping cost. And the customer service is absolutely amazing. I've had to have the sleeves on the same shirt fixed twice (my fault both times) and they are like "no problem, send it back". What more do you want from this company???
What does this mean?
120% Premium Cotton, 80/2
Its actually 100%. There was an error in our upload file for the last few fabrics we added. Will have them corrected
So you consider it bad to make suggestion for improvements?
Yes, Luxire is a deal,. but I've made some suggestions since I want them to do well (just to be clear, if it is between keeping prices low and doing things better, I still will take low prices).
Just put in an order for pique tux shirt with 2 detachable collars, white matching waistcoat and one casual shirt.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Useless contribution ^^. I haven't bought any Luxire shirts as yet, but the time is getting very near; I can't wait.
The fact that they have a very good customer service helps a lot their business. The same goes with Amazon.com. But would you buy a no-name TV or a Samsung TV on amazon.com?
Personally, I'd prefer to know it's a Samsung one.
Bottom line, I think most people here want to know which mill the fabric is from because they care. If you don't, that's your opinion and you won't care when you see the mill but for the rest of us, it's a valuable piece of information.
It matters. Like many have already stated, it actually helps their business. For the more informed, they'd be more inclined to buy a shirt made up from fabric from Thomas Mason than a nondescript one. And I'd like to think more than just a few of Luxire's orders come from this forum; where most are of the more informed crowd.
It was just a suggestion that many echoed after Luxire said they were considering removing the fabric's provenance in their shirt descriptions. Don't have to get so uptight about it. Luxire has amazing customer service and we all know it.
Perhaps you don't care where they source their fabrics from; be it from China or Italy. But to answer your question of "Who cares if its from a Thomas Mason mill." - most of us here do.
Blue Twill 120/2
Tab Collar - Blue Poplin 100/2
May I ask what the thinnest oxford cloth you got are? I already have some shirts in a thicker oxford cloth, but under sweater I find it more comfortable with a less coarse fabric.
I received my 2nd order from Luxire yesterday. Batch of 4 shirts.
As always, communication and shipping were top-tier.
The amended measurements are also perfect. The shirts are a very good fit now. I'd say perfect; but perfection is subjective.
There are quite a few errors though, and I will be returning three shirts. Luxire has agreed to remake them and amend the issues accordingly, so I will hold back for now. Once I receive the amended shirts I will post a detailed explanation. But I believe it'll all be fine - they've nailed the toughest part already; the fit. These are simply minor stylistic issues.
In which color/style are you looking for?
Separate names with a comma.
