    This described my experience almost exactly. Took two iterations. I sent in carefully made photos each time, explained my particular concerns, and received their concerns. A detailed plan was made for corrections to the next shirt. One of those last corrections for me was to lower the collar line in the back and open up the armholes more. I'm not an expert at clothing and taking measurements, but together we got it done.

    I've worn one of my Luxire shirts twice now, and both times it garnered compliments from unexpected co-workers (it's a repost from a few pages back). A girlfriend even went so far as to look at the neck tag to see who made it.


    Yes, you do gamble a little time, energy, and money. But Luxire made it easy for me to come out ahead.

    This shirt was ordered with neck and sleeve measurements in standard fit, because standard fit shirts tend to fit me fairly well. It needs some tweaks, but it is not "completely useless." The biggest problem is that the cuffs are substantially too large, which also affects the sleeve length. As it turns out, the Luxire standard for cuffs at the size I ordered (17.75, 36.5) is very large. Mine measure at ten inches, much larger than the cuffs of my 20 or so similarly sized shirts. But that's easy enough to fix, and of course Luxire will take care of it for me for free.

    I guess that it would be a problem if I had ordered the shirt as an "emergency shirt." But then again I have no idea how any custom shirt, much less one ordered online, could serve in an emergency.

    I know I need to do slight adjustments to my shirt fit. I'll take some fit pits and send them in. Would collar pitch, and all the very minor, detailed stuff then be fixable?

    Exactly. You're SOL if the shirt is too small for you. If it's too big, you can leave it or take it to your tailor for some, hopefully, minor alterations.

    Could you provide the details for collars #1738 and #1746, shown on your website under Recent Shirts?

    Would like to order some shirts and really like the look of these collars...

    TIA.

    Both the collars have 3.5" points. The 1746 has a 1.5" neck band height. Will need to check for the 1738.
    1746 is soft and unfused, 1738 is fused.

    These collars can be ordered by their name. You can simply add to the notes: "I would like the #1738 Collar" and we would use that pattern.

    Just received a new shirt today. :slayer: This is my second order and I have to say it turned out really well. I worked with Theresa to correct some issues with neck drop and shoulder slope from my first try. I tried it on briefly and I think we figured out my "settings". It's hard to tell from the picture but it's the light blue university stripe. The fabric is soft and lightweight. Highly recommended if you like blue and white striped shirts. I went unfused on cuffs and collar and it really has a Barba look and feel.

    Is that the university stripe in the oxford weave?
    I have a shirt of that fabric in the making as well and am very curious what it really looks like.

    It's not an oxford weave, the link I have to the particular fabric is not working but it's pretty much this one with a lesser thread count and it's $69.95.

    A while back you and I were both asking about various white and blue stripe fabrics and Luxire posted this picture. I think the fabric I have is one on the left.

    Thanks!

    Am really curious which stripes I'll receive in my swatch package and how the oxford university stripe will turn out :)

    Looks lovely and suspiciously like one in my recent order :)

    The way the fabric pattern lines up so well at the collar tips, yolk seam, and anywhere else has been great on my other shirts too. I've always been impressed with that. Look at the placket for example.
