    The scarves look great, and I can't thank you enough for actually making them a usable size. So many people get that wrong.

    Now I just have to pick one.

    Am on the lookout for something as fine as we would like to carry.

    I just received my first order from Luxire, a sky blue poplin shirt with their "1738" collar. It really is a wonderful shirt for $70. The construction is above reproach and the fabric is first rate. I would be happy with it at at least twice the price, to be perfectly honest. If you're on the fence you should really give it a try.

    I'll be ordering from Luxurie in a few days, figuring out what I want. It'll be my first custom shirt order.

    This thread helped. I'm excited, you guys seem great to work with.

    Beautiful scarves and fabric, Ashish.

    Good question. I like them both equally in terms of fit. The excellent hand-sewing on the second set gives it the advantage there. I'm definitely ordering more in the future, but I'm not sure which pattern I prefer. If you order w/o sending a pair, I suggest taking multiple measurements from two or three of your favorite pairs and making sure you're very precise.

    Interesting. I was thinking the measurements were of your body, not an existing pair of pants. I'm not sure I have any pants that fit so nicely that I would like them to be the template for custom. Looks like I'll need to spend some time trying stuff on and taking pictures...

    Ashish has said in the past (at least for their shirts) that if you send in body measurements they can convert them into their in-house pattern measurements...

    Do you have any more solid pink oxfords, or just the two up on the site? My wife killed my old favorite by washing it with a pair on new denim, so it's time to replace it.

    Of the two on the site, it looks like the "Pink" is warmer than the "Pale Pink." Is that accurate?

    Would also be interested in price point for the pants and the types of fabrics available (wools, cotton, linen, etc)

    Yes, the pink is warmer than the pale pink.

    We are still working on the pricing, but should start at about 69.99

    Wool, cotton, linen would all be available gradually. The selection at launch is a blend of interesting cottons, with a small sprinkling of wool and linen.

    I believe that shirt on the right will do quite nicely for lounging about with family on Christmas eve up north. Hopefully it arrives before I fly out of course.

    Yes, these are flannels, but all 3 are different weight and feel.

    The one on the left in the picture above is super heavy, not only our heaviest, but the heaviest I have ever come across. There are more though. Will update.

    Weights of flannels? Are they brushed and super-soft?

    Got my shirt today. Sleeves and shoulders appear to be all too long, and this shirt was made using body measurements according to Luxire's PDF guide, measured by a professional tailor.

    Aside from the fact that the customer service has been pretty good and turn around time was fast, I can't say that I will necessarily be a repeat customer.


    I have to say though, for the $70 price point, the fabric is pretty good (Lustrous fine white) and I like the collar (reminds me of Kiton shirt)

    Are the measurements off from what you submitted? I always figure it takes one shirt just to get the measurements right, then another 1-2 to get them perfectly tweaked. One thing MT does is get a discount shirt made out of crap fabric to test fit.
