    I know this is somewhere deep in the thread, but if you have a pic of these, would you mind posting? Interested in collar band height (I know there's a google doc somewhere too). I have a version of the Borrelli/Barba BD made by another MTM which I might try to have replicated by Luxire when I can make the purchase.

    Have you emailed them? Curious what this means in terms of construction. Perhaps for lighter weight pants (to make a guess).

    I'm a fan, good roll. It fits well in the "ivy" category, IMO.

    Do people actually refer to the NOBD collars as such when they place an order?

    Yep, you can just type in the comments that you want either the NOBD I or NOBD II and Luxire will know what to do.

    About to send this jacket in to have it replicated. Fabric will match the pants, Dugdale light gray worsted. Looking forward to having the complete suit. I think the only thing I plan on changing is the hip pockets to flap. Don't think I will mess with measurements at all because I like the fit. I'm open to suggestions...

    You'd have to put your arms down for me to get a better idea about the fit. Shoulders look outstanding. I can't tell 100%, but I think the button stance looks too high.

    I agree, but what do you suggest...-25" or -50"? It also has the slightest of flare at the bottom so I was thinking of asking them to "decrease bottom width .25". I am being extremely picky about that and would probably be better off leaving it alone...not sure yet.

    I doubt you can make an accurate suggestion with my arms in the position they are in. I think I have a good idea...

    The fit on that jacket is great, but the button does appear to sit quite high. It's difficult to tell by how much in this photo.

    I haven't seen any pictures of Luxire's pocket squares on here yet, so I thought I'd take some pictures of the two I just received. Here is one of the "Fine white linen" against a dark fabric. It shows the weave of the linen and how the edges are rolled. I will take some more pictures another time including those of my custom printed square in wool-silk.

    I've had stitch creasing done on three pairs of trousers. Looked good on the two that have puppytooth and herringbone patterns since it blends with the crease. They did a good job on all 3...no issues yet. Looked like it would require some skill to do it right.

    Yeah, I noticed that. It isn't revealing anything other than an expiration date so no biggie, but it won't be there next time.

    Here is a better shot for everyone. Don't mind the Bruins shirt, I was in my jammies...

    You have to mention that you want it unfused and lightly lined too, if you don't they'll make it both lined and fused, which happened to me.

    Would like to elaborate something with you guys. What tie space do you find to be good enough to avoid a gap between the tie knot and collar (collar band showing over the knot). I know this gap depends on many vaiables, such as collar stiffness, tie fabric friction etc., but I think tie space also plays an important role. I genuinly dislike when the tie slips down and allows a gap and would like to avoid ordering shirts that allows this to occur.

    Many thanks.

    #5345 collar in action.

    Didn't have time to iron this morning:

    I think it looks great with a four in hand tie but looks marvellous without.

    Due to the slight curve of the collar points, the collar doesn't slip over the lapels no matter how much I gesticulate. Fantastic!

    Got shipment notice today. Ordered two OCBDs (from existing pattern, unchanged) and a pair of trousers (completely new pattern). Turnaround time twelve days. Fantastic!
