    I'm looking for a milky coffee coloured polo, khaki brown or beige might fit this colour. It's hard for me to decide based on names. I personally steer away from brightly coloured fabrics and stick with nature colours.



    I could see myself wearing, burnt orange, pale green and light blue. A white navy striped polo could be considered as well.

    They have also gone back to the old system where the shipping cost does not cover taxes, which is quite a bummer as this increases the total by about ~30-40 per cent, depending on order price.

    Here is a pic of my first luxire shirt straight out of the box. Fabric is blue dress stripe seersucker. I am pretty happy with it and will be making some small adjustments on my next one. I will post more detailed pictures after it is washed and ironed.

    That's a good looking collar. Which one is it?


    Did you pay $25 for shipping?

    They covered it on my last order when I did pay $25, but have recently changed backed to the old system for Norwegian customers.

    You mean you didn't have to pay for shipping and then got hit with customs?

    The new shipping T&Cs only apply to a couple of countries, Norway is one of them. Thing is that instead of the $25 shipping - all duties paid method, we now pay $15 for shipping but are responsible for all duties.

    The costs of i.e. one shirt is now the price of the shirt, plus shipping and then 25% vat and toll fees. Would also probably have to pay dhl's criminal toll processing fees as well.

    I think the shipping time is slower compared to fedex too.

    The seersucker fabric in action. Absolutely love this shirt. Highly recommended to everyone, even though it is $20 more expensive now.

    @luxire, do you think you could source a fabric (3/4 wool 1/4 cotton) similar to that used to make replica Browns Beach clothing (that isn't ridiculously expensive)?

    If there is sufficient interest, we can get the fabrics made. Making the clothing is relatively straight forward.

    I believe the brand is now dead and a few companies are doing some reproductions.

    Looks great, well done! Would also like to know the collar deets.

    Also, did you have to specify anything other than length to get a shirt that works untucked? How well does the shirt stay tucked in at this length?

    In my future orders I'm thinking of attempting to get shirts that would work both untucked and tucked so I can swap between casual and a little dressier.

    That collar looks amazing. Great roll for a non button down. Details please.

    Excellent. If another three, then I'd go with Wine, Racing Green, and medium Grayish Brown. But light gray's not a bad idea, particularly if heathered. I also like Clapy's stripe, if that's possible.

    I know that everyone has preferences, but I think light grey would sell the best of all the colors. I'd personally like to see a pale yellow and a pale pink.

    A very pale blue, like a dress shirt, would be nice.

    if I had to guess best sellers, I'd rank crisp white #1, then pale blue and then khaki or white with navy stripes. no agenda.
