    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks good; actually fairly similar to my own custom collar, except fine has a lower collar band height IIRC. I find this kind of collar shape/size fits nicely under jackets and despite lack of tie space, the spread itself is enough to allow a tie to sit comfortably.

    Looks pretty close to me... Would have to see a closer comparison to really know.

    It's exactly what I was looking for, so I'm quite happy. Nice fabric, too.

    The stripes on Betelguese's shirt are obviously wider than on yours.

    The contrast is stronger in Betelguese's photo. That's the difference. The rest is an optical illusion.

    If I wanted to decrease the inseam of pants by .5 and increase rise by 2, I would simply do the minus .5 for inseam, increase 2 for pants length and rise right?

    ^ 2 inches or 2 cm? 2 inches difference in rise would be a very drastic change. If you want to increase rise and decrease inseam, just say increase rise and decrease inseam. don't think you would even have to mention overall length, unless you wanted to throw that in there as an extra fail safe to make sure every measurement was accounted for. Actually, if you are increasing rise by 2 and decreasing inseam by .5, wouldn't that translate to roughly a 1.5 increase in overall pant length instead of 2?

    Look at the number of stripes on collar.

    Well, I hope you are right.

    Either way, it will be a useful dress shirt.

    To me it looks the same. [​IMG]

    Would you mind sharing the details of the collar in an image? Something like this

    Have any of you guys, who own the Luxire selvedge jeans, washed them?

    I managed to spill redwine on them on friday. No visible marks, but the smell is not so nice.. :p

    Instructions on the site say: machine wash cold, tumble dry. I haven't got a tumble drier so I'm thinking washing it on a cold cycle and hanging it over a clothes horse (seriously strange word...) until dry.

    Additionally would you recommend turning it inside out for the washing?

    Air drying is always the gentlest of ways of drying your clothes, isn't it?
    I turn inside out every garment I wash, as I think it will preserve the front facings of my clothes from the fricition it is exposed to in the washing drum.

    Well, our Miele washing maschine is a front loader and does have a softcare drum, still I better am safe than sorry.
    I guess it's part of my German nature, which in this case you happily do no share? :embar:

    Hey Clapey. I am thinking of trying out your collar for my next order. Two questions: how do you think it would manage with just one button on the collar band? I am not really fond of the two button thing. Also, how do you think the collar would look if modified into a BD? I personally am very fond of the Italian style of BD with higher collar band and points, and your collar might be a good starting point...

    Guys, I recently received a shirt with what I suppose is the "Barba BD collar". However, I feel a bit unsure, and I suspect that I might have gotten the stock Luxire BD collar. Could someone who has the Barba collar please post (or maybe update the collar spreadsheet) the back and front collar band height and point lengths so that I can make sure which collar I actually ended up with?

    Many thanks! It is much appreciated.

    Nice! I was one of the people asking for more info about this collar. Could you please update the spreadsheet with measurements (collar band and point lengths)?

    You can find the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...9ScVo3VkNlR2JRSU5tTFFOMlE&usp=drive_web#gid=0
