    In my opinion those sleeves are a good length but are hanging too low due to a cuff circumference that is too big.

    Good catch guys.

    The shirt pocket starts below the armpits for some reason, but all my other RTW shirts start the pocket a couple inches above my arm pit hole. I'm not sure why Luxire did that, but I can always request to move the pocket up for my next shirt, no big deal.

    It's a simple alteration that a tailor can fix right? It doesn't seem like it's a hard alternation: to move the pocket up a bit.

    I'm not really a fan of the fit. The sleeves appear too long and there is not enough taper from elbow to wrist. If you like the feel of a more relaxed fit then I think the sleeves are okay from shoulder to elbow but after that they need to contour better with your forearm. Something about the collar is off. I think it is laying down too much. Take everything I say with a grain of salt though as I prefer a slimmer cut and that might not be your thing.

    Oh crap. After seeing that Henry Carter milano spread collar, I just want to pick up a bunch of luxire shirts. Not sure where I should start

    This is mine! I hadn't used Luxire before and wanted to use my first order as a bit of a fun experiment - I grabbed the first page I flipped to from my sketch book for clothing and sent it to them in an email with measurements. I wanted a linen trench with a bit of an exaggerated shape to it, almost like a morning coat but very casual. The pictures look very true to my sketch, and I'm mostly just excited to see the quality and enjoy having a garment made to such odd specifications!

    Both very nice. Luxire, is this the same fabric as the shirt you made for me when I just asked for a heavy, natural-colored linen? That's probably my favorite shirt. The linen is really wonderful. Very crisp and super wrinkle-resistant.
    Good to hear. I'm still holding out for some hemp-blend denim.
    Wow, that does look perfect.
    Aiyiyi. Must... resist... the temptation...

    Both are different emptym. This one is a little thicker/heavier. Both being non-standard orders, the fabrics were selected from our collection to suit the individual needs of the garment, keeping in mind the provided specifications.

    Thanks. Could you give more details on the blue one please. Is it a linen, chambray linen mix ?

    The off white linen trousers and the cotton/linen shirt after a wash and a pressing. I'm really happy with the way they turned out. The fit is pretty much spot on, except for the shoulders, which I've decreased a bit for my next shirt.

    ^ excellent fit! Looks like you've got your patterns pretty locked down with Luxire now. I'm really happy with my trouser pattern, and I made some very small adjustments to my shirt pattern (my shoulders were also a little larger than I liked, so I reduced that measurement a bit), and I have a new shirt coming in a few days with the changes. Hopefully it comes out perfect, then I'll finally be able to make future orders with no more changes.

    Does this collar look okay without a tie on?
