    Thanks for that. I also suggest you wear your shirts tucked in with your best fitting trousers for the fit pics if that is how you intend to wear the shirt, since the look can change after its been tucked.

    Makes sense, thanks for the info. Honestly I don't really want to try this unless I absolutely have to, or maybe this is something Luxire could offer for a fee? This easier solution would just be to offer a mid-weight standard white oxford. All the reviews I've read of the warzone and warzone plus is that they're pretty heavy.

    It seems that your shoulder seam droops past your shoulder point by 3/4" - 1". In terms of aesthetic balance, I like to shoot for an imaginary nice gentle curve with the side seam from the hips up to the shoulder seam. I could MS paint this if you can't visualize what I mean.

    I got my first Luxire order today! I based it on a well fitting shirt I own, and made small adjustments. Seems to fit well in the shoulders. Not sure how to improve fit with my hyperlordotic back though (it already has darts), I might need to pin it up and see. Also, is the cuff sitting too high?

    Some things I think I'll change for next time:

    - Ask for a smaller (or no) pocket. This one looks unusually large on my small frame.
    - Don't accidentally click 'custom' for the front placket (whoops!)
    - Probably make it shorter, although having it long makes it easier to keep tucked

    I would go with long sleeves and short sleeves only for the hottest days with white linen or voille. Regarding the fabrics, I have the Linen: Pale blue end-on-end

    http://luxire.com/products/linen_pale_blue_end-on-end

    which looks very similar to your first, but is a tiny little bit darker due to a more blueish saturated weft (or warp? I dunno). I think the slightly darker shade of blue is more favorable for pale guys like myself. Given the looks, I wouldn't be surprised if both were from the same mill. It's very very comfortable, airy and drapes quite good. So far my favorite fabric from Luxire.

    The summer chambray is quite dressy and is like a end-on-end at the one side and pinstripes at the other. I think NOBD just got a nice end-on-end.
