Nice, I will keep an eye out for how it turned out.
I'm more accustomed to non-iron shirts since most of my shirts are purchased at Brooks Brothers. I recently ordered this shirt: http://luxire.com/products/luxire-gold-white-with-blue-stripes
1) While the shirt is soft, it definitely wrinkles a bit much. Are there shirts in the $70 to $130 range I should consider that is high quality but doesn't wrinkle as much as the shirt in the link?
2) What is Luxire Gold?
3) Can somebody recommend me some fabric that is great for a specific price range (best bang for the buck)? It's mainly for business wear, so nothing too funky.
The soft herringbone is really nice, definitely true to the name and irons very easily.
When did the compulsory $25 shipping charge to the UK come into action?
Quote:would you be able to link me some examples? Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. Mostly to a business casual office and to church. Note that in Colorado business casual means no suits and no shorts, but anything in between is fair game. At church anything is fair game, including suits and shorts.
^ Do you know how easy the fabric wrinkles, and whether or not it comes out of the dryer wearable?
Shirts don't go in the dryer....
Yours might not.
If you did put it in the dryer, which I really, really wouldn't recommend, it would be wearable afterwards. It essentially needs no ironing, ever. It reminds me a lot of micro fibre.
Yeah, I don't use the same level of diligence as you when it comes to my clothing. I spin them on low heat for a few minutes. Convenience over optimal care.
No idea about the dryer as I don't have one, but it's a 2 minute job to iron the shirt.
comments on fit. Do I need to taper the forearms and biceps a bit?
I think slimming the arms a very small amount would be good. All round it's not bad! How is it when you sit? Looks like it could buckle across the buttons a little due to being slim but I can't tell.
