    I'll keep any eye out in this thread for you to announce availability of wool trousers in a formal fabric, something like a 120 or therebaouts.

    ^PM sent.
    Regarding the shape of the collar, I snapped a couple of pictures comparing the two and you can see that the soft (striped) collar is shaped at a slightly different angle.

    Both of the collars do measure out the same however. Two things that we tweaked quite a bit on the second order (striped shirt) were my neck drop and shoulder slope, so I think the difference in collar angle is a result of that tweaking rather than a miscue on Luxire's part. Regardless, I do like the spread of the soft striped collar more than the fused collar after all. I hope this helps.

    If I provide exact shirt measurements on the Custom Measurements option, how does Fit Type affect it? Would it alter my measurements?

    No, it will not affect or alter the provided measurements.

    The fit type is for people wanting to order a standard size.

    Luxire, Is there a maximum on swatch orders? What is the current price per swatch? Would you consider counting the money spent on swatches as a credit towards future orders? For example, if I order 10 swatches for $10, you would extend a $10 credit toward a purchase of a shirt.

    We are still streamlining the swatches process. Currently, they are priced at $1 each, plus shipping. No minimum or maximum. If ordered with another item, shipping of swatches is free.

    No store credit is currently provided for ordered swatches.

    Hey Luxire; just wondering what your most popular fabrics are (top 3/5) and also do you have any brown horn buttons currently?

    We do not have a ready "Best-Selling" list. Thank you for sending me on that search. Was a bit surprised to see what I saw. Below is the list of top 5. 3 whites and 2 blues.

    1. Lustrous Fine White

    2. Monti White on White Stripes

    3. Warzone White Oxford

    4. Classic Blue Oxford

    5. Pale Blue Poplin 2/100

    Got corozo in white, grey and black. No horn buttons yet. Should arrive in a couple of weeks though. Work in progress.

    White on white stripes; didn't expect that on the top 5 :) Also would you say that the 'Lustrous Fine White' is the best white for year round CBD wear? I currently own the Warzone White Oxford and find it too heavy for summer.

    Button down. Button downs are IMO the right choice whenever you arent wearing a tie.

    I was thinking of ordering my first shirt from Luxire, and I mostly use casual shirts so I was thinking of getting, at least firsttly, a OCBD-shirt.

    I'm of the impression that unfused collar/cuffs are preferred to fused cuffs/collar when it comes to casual shirts. Is this a correct starting point?

    I should add that I would like for Luxire to make the collar somewhat like the Epaulet high-stance collar, if that's possible. I think I read about a member here who did this when ordering a shirt.

    Not necessarily. Fused don't necessarily look stiff; they just look tidy. Unfused can sort of pull and wrinkle in unattractive ways. I like both but one isn't necessarily better.


    I had Luxire make a custom larger collar for me where I specified the back height, point length, etc. and it came out great.

    While unfused and fused are usually a matter of preference when it comes to OCBD's always go unfused and partially or completely unlined for some awesome collar roll!

    I hadn't read this thread for several weeks, just scrolled through the latest posts. Luxire just keeps on delivering. You've added some very interesting categories and that dress shirt is more akin to an artwork than just something to be thrown on.

    It is possible to have the free shipping to Mexico, as you offer in your web site"]free shipping in all orders"

    Luxire,

    What khaki chino material do yall have? Just what's on the site? I'm ok with spending $150 on chinos, but not until I'm a bit more dialed in on fit. Anything else available? Many thanks
