    Order #7302. Specify that you'd like to have the one button placket one piece polo collar from that order. I'm extremely satisfied with the way Luxire copied the collar based on just some pictures.

    If you want something out of the ordinary, you can just send Luxire a description with a couple of pictures. They're seriously awesome at interpreting your pictures, so don't be afraid to give it a try.

    EDIT: I added it to the collar googledoc, so it's there for future reference.

    Is it hard to get that polo on monkeyface? I have that fabric and didn't think it had much give. Did you relax your normal measurements? Cheers.

    No, not at all! I did relax my measurements a bit, but not much compared to the other shirt.

    Face of the Monkey, I think that the shoulders are big, if I'm not mistaken the chest measurement could stay like that and the shoulder could be decreased. Collars and fabrics look nice!

    Thanks Betel, they came out a bit bigger than I had imagined. I have decreased the shoulder measurement and transferred an inch from the back panel to the front panel for my next shirt, so there's more room in the chest and a less in the back.

    lol @ people who say "luxire messed up the measurements on my shirt, I need it to the re-made" without reading the "how to measure" section of the website.

    and then never hearing from them again once the link is posted.

    My first luxire shirt. Collar is a custom one based on a proper cloth milano collar with a few little tweaks. The band height is high (I'm 6'2" with a long neck) and I'm tweaking it a little for the next one (slightly less spread). Order is #7210 for anyone interested in the collar. The Yoke and shoulders are also a little tight so have added a bit to them and the chest too for the next version. All in all though a very well made shirt.

    Nice @Henry Carter! Could you please update the collar sheet with deets?

    Also, what fabric did you choose? Any reviews?

    Sure, what's the link to the sheet again?

    It was one of the basic dress stripes http://custom.luxire.com/collections/stripes/products/blue_dress_stripes_gtz49536

    For $80 it's a lovely fabric and irons easily with quite a nice sheen to it. I'll likely get another one or 2 in this exact fabric once I get my pattern down (hopefully on attemot no 2)

    Thanks. How much sheen is there? Too much to wear with cashmere, tweed, donegal or other type of rougher materials? How easily does it wrinkle?

    Done and done. I would wear a thicker oxford or something a bit more matte with winter coats and the like personally. This is more of a suit shirt, IMO.

    @HC: looks good; what did you specify for collar lining?
