    The fit. What do you guys think?

    The biggest issue: the armhole is too narrow. What else would you change?

    I didn't ask for a split yoke on my first shirt because I didn't even think about it, but I got one anyway, which I'm quite happy with. If I remember correctly, Modern Tailor used to charge an extra $10 for a split yoke, I like that Luxire will add it at no extra cost. I'll have to remember to request a split yoke going forward for all my future Luxire shirts.

    I think the fit looks pretty good - you already said the armhole is too narrow, so I'm guessing that's what's causing the bunching in that area. Other than that, I wouldn't change too much. If it were my shirt, I'd probably add darts in the back, but I like darts so that's mostly a personal preference. And maybe to nitpick you could increase the cuff size on your left arm to fit it over your watch? Again, mainly just a personal preference there. Overall, well done!

    +1 about adjusting cuff size for the watch.
    +1 also about darting or taking in the lower back

    You mention the armholes are too small, how do you find the bicep area? They look like you can tighten that up a bit to remove some of the upper sleeve wrinkling, but I can be wrong.

    Also you *might have a slightly stooped or hunched shoulders posture as it appear from your side photo your are armholes are tight at the front, but there is ample space in the back.

    Strange, I have never seen a Luxire shirt without a split yoke, strange yours doesn't have one.
    The gauntlet too looks unfamiliar to me.

    As for the fit, I don't like darts and would therefore suggest to slightly reduce the back waist as there is obviously fabric not needed around that area.
    Do you plan to wear the shirt tucked all of the time?
    In case so I'd probably slightly reduce the bottom hem as well to reduce the bunching around the waistline.
    Overall very well done!

    I thought split yoke was standard (like Louis XIV)?
    Do we have to mention it in the comments?

    I've never mentioned a split yoke and all ten of my shirts have it.

    No idea, just saw that you got vertical stripes there, thought the horizontal stripes might be the explanation.

    May have come down to a decision of split yoke but stripes didn't match up perfectly or remove the split yoke to keep it clean. They probably made an executive decision and ran with it. I wouldn't think it would be an oversight on their part.

    Yeah thanks I have seen that fabric. I have a few shirts with grey/ blue/ white combination and it works very well...

    Someone was organising an MTO earlier with a blue and narrow white stripes linen (NOBD?), what happened to that?

    Yeah, if you want it to be a compression shirt.

    It's called drape, not "obviously fabric not needed." Reducing the width of the waist may result in pulling across when you sit, which is uncomfortable. But I guess some people like our eminent Louis XIV want a skin-tight shirt to show off their mighty fine physique.

    I like the fit of the shirt, but you can see there's bunching below the shoulders. This indicates that the shirt was cut for a squarer shoulder slope. Your shoulders are sloped. If you pinch the shoulders upwards, it will exhibit a clean drape.

    Easily rectifiable.

    I think the horizontal stripes is an abomination, but that has nothing to do with fit. The only other time I've seen a shirt with horizontal stripes is in Wall Street, and it looked absurd.

    Proper, grownup overcoats (i.e. knee-length, traditional styling) are nonexistent in the RTW market. Can Luxire make overcoats, I wonder? Or is that too ambitious?

    Shipping confirmation for my beige moleskins just came this morning. I ordered on August 12th (second order, minor changes in measurements from first). 17 days from order to shipping is pretty good.
