    Not sure if anyone on here can answer this but what do you do when you get something made that does not fit? Is there a process to start up to modify my existing patter or do I just try again and order another shirt with different measurements?

    You can send it back with what you want changed but you have to pay shipping, which I think is absolutely silly. I sent in a shirt with minor adjustments to be made and it came back but the arm holes were to tight. I didn't bother sending it back so I"ll get it altered locally when I get around to it.

    Why is it silly? If you asked for the wrong measurements, but they executed it correctly, that's on you, thus you pay shipping to get it fixed.

    So I read on this thread with someone talking about 200$ approx for pants and 400/450 for Jacket - basically putting a Fresco Suit at around 600/650$.
    What are your thoughts on that? Assuming that you ask them to "not do" the button holes and get that done locally?

    Refined in what terms? Fit, Stitch, Button hole issue? What are the pieces missing - FEEDBACK for them and for us to know what can be improved.

    So any try their clearance shirts?

    table21, first check your emails, your order confirmation lists all the measurements you gave to Luxire.
    Second, wash and measure your shirt, has Luxire followed the measurements you gave them correctly? Well, in case so, it's not their fault the shirt does not fit you.
    If not, you can contact Theresa and discuss what you options are.

    As for your shirt, obviously you need a greater bottom width, other from that it seems you have too little fabric in the back of the chest and waist.
    I can't comment on the height of the armhole, you need to know yourself whether or not you can move around as freely as you want to.
    As for the sleeve length and width, I would keep it as it, but I like my sleeves to drape with as little break as possible and thus shorter and tighter than most others.

    Luxire, I would like to learn about the means you have got to account for forward sloping shoulders.
    I feel most people nowadays have forward sloping shoulders and definitely do I.
    What do I need to expect from a shirt that account for it?
    A differently cut yoke, different shoulder seems, a different shape of the armhole?

    Besides a red oxford shirt I decided to go crazy with the collar of a Easy-to-Iron Blue Chambray Shirt:

    One-piece button-down collar inspired by a Gulielminotti-collar

    I don't see the part where you button it down, though? Looks good, I have the same cloth swatch sitting here and decided it was too pink for me. I might have opted for longer collar points and a button down function.

    I like the way the sewed on your buttons.

    • Clapeyron, the red shirt is not from Luxire, it's an older shirt Guglielminotti. I just took the pictures to illustrate the collar for the shirt I've ordered today. The original collar doesn't have button-downs, but I thought I'd try it with it. Anna Matuozzo has a very nice Chambray with a one-piece/Capri collar in her tumblr and I think this combination is looking great.


    The shirt is more red (strawberry red) than pink, and it's knitted pique. I wish Luxire had this color of knitted pique...

    What happened to the Alumo Light Blue University Stripes 140/2? I'm guessing it ran out of stock -- if so, will it be restocked? When?

    Bump, bump, and bump on TWEED. I am curious about the calvalry twill as Luxire has marked them as tweed as well, but from the online swatches, I can't see a jacket being made from them.

    I just feel the current selection is primary herringbone (which I used to fancy, but inexplicably have fallen out of favour for me personally), and windowpane/check. Looking for more textured and flecked solids. The sad thing is, fall is already here and winter is around the corner.

    Speaking of winter, anybody get feedback from Luxire on overcoats and peacoats? I am in Canada, so I would be looking at a pretty heavy wool/cashmere.

    The cavalry twill is definitely not something I'd make a jacket out of. Great for trousers, though.
