I'd wear it and wash it about 3-4 times before making a decision.
Just got sent an email to review a recent purchase of a shirt I ordered but actually haven't received/gotten shipping notification for yet. Wonder if something is up with their automated system that makes it think I got it?
It automatically sends an email after a certain amount of time after you've placed your order, nothing to do with fulfillment status. They really should change it to send the email two weeks after it's been fulfilled.
any experience with the Micro-Gingham linen, is it light or medium weight? wrinkles? I can't find any swatch pics.
I'm also deciding between Blue Chambray Linen and the Indigo Summer Chambray for warmer days..Thoughts?
Is the Navy Brembana Chambray too heavy for Spring/Summer? Should have jumped on it before the price increase...TIA
I know quite a few people have had this same issue but did anyone successfully find a solution?
I'm referring to the the pulling of excess fabric around armholes. From the front it's less noticable and I can live with it but
would like to fix it for future orders.
Tell them to account for your sloping shoulders. If you shrug your shoulders up the wrinkles will dissappear, so they need to cut your shirts with the slope in mind.
This looks like the issues with my shirt, only a bit more extreme. I already specified a quite heavy shoulder slope, and Theresa told me to decrease it. Since your shoulders seem to slope quite a bit and you didn't say you specified a slope already you probably need to increase the shoulder slope. Just look at the bottom of the plaquet and how it slopes on the first and last fifth of your shoulders: this shouldn't happen, the bottom of the plaquet should be a straight line.
Also, you probably need to decrease the armholes a bit and add darts. to clean up the back. After that you might still need to tinker with the chest and waist measurements.
It's actually been posted a LOT. Not sure how you missed it if you really looked. Look in my pics, or a few others. I won't bump them to the top as I already have three times, I think. It's lightweight. It's linen. It wrinkles. I have it on right now and... it's a wrinkled mess. Love it.
Been posted by many members. NOBD has posted it feels like flannel nearly every time he's posted a picture. I agree.
Anybody have good recs for a mid grey linen pant? There's so many options available, not sure which one would work best. I'd be using them mainly a business casual pant to wear to the office during the summer. I was looking at these Luxire grey linens or maybe this similar Dugdale cloth.
Ditto for a khaki/tan/ecru linen pant, there must be 30 different options there. Looking for something not too white or see through, and not too brown, but somewhere in the middle. I kinda like the look of these, these, and maybe these. If anyone has experience with any of these, let me know!
Thanks for the feedback that's very insightful, I'll try this on my next order. Hopefully adjusting the shoulder slope will solve my biggest issue here.
The size of the armholes actually feel quite good, I don't think I'd want to make them any smaller. However I think I will decrease the circumference of the sleeve at the bicep because
there seems to be too much fabric.
Which fabric is this, and how would you describe it? I've been looking for a navy blue shirt similar to this.
Eight weeks and counting...
has anyone ordered the any of the pale purple zegna or pale purple G&R fabrics?
Its navy denim chambray. It was quite rigid out of the box but softens up nicely after a couple washes. Slightly thinner material then I had imagined but lovely texture to it, ideal for spring/summer.
Luxire Denim Owners,
I'm looking for a denim color similar to the raw color of apc new standards. Based on the pics in this thread and on the luxire site, it appears that their "raw" color is a brighter blue? And that the dark indigo is closer to a more typical "raw" color? Is that right?
Also, I saw some have requested jeans be pre-soaked. Does Luxire charge extra for that? Did you find that it eliminated any shrinkage?
And after extended wear, did your jeans stretch at all?
