    The gingham looks awesome! Would you mind to share it's order # for the collar. Maybe it has been mentioned here before, but it's one of the nicest BDs seen for a long time.

    I noticed that Luxire's ginghams are always made the wrong way round. The darker strips run horizontal as opposed to vertical. Do the customers realize this or is it a special request?

    I always thought the Navy Oxford Gingham looks like a nice fabric, but the shirts are underwhelming. I couldn't put my fingers on it and thought the checks might be too big or the lighter checks might be too light, but I think your explanation is right. I guess we aren't accustomed to vertical lines in a (dress) shirt, opposed to a polo etc.

    Is there anyway to prevent this on future orders?

    The sleeves are bunching, they're a tad long. Otherwise pretty solid fit imo.

    Everybody else

    Surely its a personal choice, but it seems vertical gingham is the unspoken default.

    Hmm, they run vertical on my small blue gingham. Never thought about it before you mentioned it, though, tbh.

    Yeah, its kind of a mixed bag. I was looking to have a gingham shirt done up recently so I've noticed some inconsistency with their product shots.

    Just something to look out for if you cared. Maybe specify it in the details for your next order if you want to be sure of what you're getting.

    I just wish they'd get fabrics with the pattern running the same vertically and horizontaly. Just looks weird to me otherwise.

    Hand Welted. Except the stitching on the uppers, everything is completely hand-made.

    Our standard button-down. This was made stiff and is fused on request.

    Agree completely and am holding off ordering more trousers until a solution is found.
