    I have the NOBD II collar, and it's way too low for my liking. Clapeys collar looks high enough, but it has 2 buttons. I'll have to find happy medium I guess.

    Luxire,

    Any chance of seeing a bleeding madras shirt range? Or more madras fabrics for the summer? I would really like to place orders for some summer shirtings now so I can wear them if the winter ever ends in NY.

    Cheers and keep up the good work!

    David-

    Looks like 5 of my swatches may still be en route.

    And I laughed out loud when I saw the blue stripe seersucker was still that rainbow dealio.

    Linen Chambray feels excellent, @NOBD . I will be ordering a shirt in it.

    Perhaps blame the jacket, not the collar.

    Oops, you're right. Didn't realize that's NOBD. I'm usually a fan of his outfits and have never seen him in such a skinny tie. But my opinion isn't swayed by who posted the pic, and yours shouldn't be, either.


    Nope.

    Luxire, have yall considered really adding on to the ties? Grenadines and such? I get the impression yall could pump out some pretty impressive 4/6/7 fold ties at great prices. I know yall will make them from fabrics you have, but I mean more going out and sourcing tie-specific wools and silks (if such things exist)

    I'm not swayed. I'll admit that tie doesn't look as nice as I've seen that tie look in other pictures he's taken. But when I say NOBD knows what he's doing, I mean if we saw the entire fit, it would probably be to my liking.

    I like it either way. I think the fabric of the tie is a bit more casual, so the width is fine.

    I wasn't aware that I had a skinny tie.

    As someone that has to wear gi quite often, a noragi with a waist closure requires a closure at the chest level if you don't want the chest to gape open in a very unflattering, almost gigolo-esque manner (unless that's the look you're going for, in which case go for it). If you don't want to ruin the lines of the front, take a page from the hakama and have the belt long enough to tie/fasten in the back.

    It looks okay in these pics. In the first two--the closeups of the knot area--it looks much slimmer. Must have just been the way you tied it that day.


    You are contradicting yourself.

    Just ordered my first shirt, a blue hairline stripe with an English spread collar (3.5" points, no tie space and unfused/lightly lined). Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Just ordered my first pair of Luxire trousers in the navy twill cotton cloth, went for the Ambrosi Napoli look with the waistband. Will love to see how they come out, have the trouser measurements down pat as I work with suiting and pants/tailoring etc so will be interested to see how the end product comes out, fit wise.
