    You can always send Luxire a mail and ask them where they are in the progress. I wanted a rough estimate of my last order and received information that they were making the pattern. By their estimation it will arrive next week (after ~6 weeks). I'm really looking forward to seeing the results.

    How do you like the indigo overdyed? It looks darker than on the website.

    How is it compared to the classic blue oxford? I ordered the Peach casual oxford but it was not casual at all.

    I'd thought of that but wanted to ask here first to avoid bugging them with another "Is it done yet?" email, but your tact sounds good. If I get some sort of eta (1 week, 3 weeks, whatever) then I can at least stop hovering.

    Follow up - I message'd Luxire and got a response from Theresa in, what, less than 5 minutes? It's shipping today or Monday.

    Like I told her, if I could have been patient just one more day...

    Agreed. But it's what I'd expect it to be, deep indigo blue.



    There's no sheen on both and but the classic oxford is much thicker and substantial. Looks pretty casual to me.

    All three after a quick wash

    (sorry for my past few messages that read like a play-by-play but...)

    ...and, just like that, I get the "it's shipped!" message with tracking and was pleasantly shocked that Fedex from India is expecting to deliver to me in the US in 3 days.

    That's crazy fast, is that normal? Just curious, I've never ordered something directly from the other side of the planet before.

    It flew that fast for both my orders. Initially stated to be delivered on Monday but it arrived today :slayer:. Shipped 3rd - arrived 5th.

    Pretty standard for Fedex imho. We've used them for our company as well and they're always very fast.

    The Aqua Blue Casual Oxford is not casual either. More like a pinpoint if anything.

    If I reduce a chest measurement does that automatically taper downwards from there? If so, is it an exact taper (i.e. -0.5 chest would equal -0.5 straight down from there to bottom of shirt)?

    It will be tapered to the waist measurement that you give them. If you want it tapered all the way down to the bottom you should also reduce the waist and bottom measurements accordingly.

    Just got my two shirts in. The short sleeve fits well but Luxire ignored my request to increase shoulder slope so I have lines running from armpit to trap AGAIN. Same problem on the long sleeve and they didn't make the 0.5" reduction in the bicep that I requested. I guess I can ship them back and deal with that pain in the ass or just accept it. I'm starting to think they can do pants great and shirts just ok.

    Edit: Went back and measured everything. Looks like they interpreted me saying 0.5" as the total but their photos show half widths everywhere so I assumed 0.5" would amount to 1" in total.

    How do we know when they are interpreting our requests as total measurements or half measurements?

    The slope issue is what has me more frustrated than anything. I provided pics and instructions that I needed additional slope added. At this rate I'm going to return to J.Hilburn for my shirting needs.
