    Taxes are what they are. It's not like Luxire can go ahead and singlehandedly lower them. We will pay them one way or another. Canada's tarifs are ridiculous for clothing (and maybe everything), it's just something you have to deal with.

    It can be worn with a tie, but it depends were you inted to do so. It will always look a bit soft, wrinkled and asymetric. Some might say sloppy, others might embrace it and call it sprezz. For me it's fine, since I don't wear a tie for work, but for private occasions like summer weddings or restaurants I wouldn't hesitate to wear the one piece with a tie.

    What tie was that, if you don't mind me asking?

    What does this mean? When you specify the measurements, that is what you get - if you specify a 30" waist, the waist is 30". Please post info on your ordered measurements as well as pics of the real measurements.

    Perhaps you should have used Luxire's instructions since you are making the pants with them and not Epaulet.

    Wow, sincerest apologies. I have two Styleforum threads open and I posted that on the wrong thread. My post has nothing to do with Luxire with whom I've had only good experiences. I'm sorry for the confusion cbfn and kulata.

    Just received a new pair of pants + a shirt. Pants fit perfect. I haven't tried the shirt out yet, but since it's based on old measurements I'm sure it'll fit great. I'll post a fit pic later:

    @EFV shirt looks really nice! Both in terms of colour and texture, is it pique cotton or oxford?

    Cheers! It's the Linen-Cotton: Blue Knitted Pique. Actually less saturated irl than on their product page, which is great imho.

    Very nice fabric. I am very interested in all cotton-linen blends while it is still hot here. Looking forward to fit photos

    I'll be getting a one piece collar for my next shirt order and am after some advice regarding details (I already have my block down pretty well with Luxire).

    Are there any particular details, apart from collar point length, collar band length and shape that I should look out for? Such as specifying the type of fusing or canvas?

    From this thread, most examples of the one piece collar look like the English spread, how would it go with a semi spread?

    Lastly, what would people think about a one piece collar shirt with side pleats at the back? If it doesn't seem right, do you think that shirring would provide a better match with the one piece collar, but some extra room for expansion?

    Thanks!

    I'd say be aware of the weight of the fabric and then, if you do not have swatches, ask Luxire how will the unfused/unlined behave. You don't want it too floppy. I am not an expert but I can imagine that the less spread the more difficult it is to have the one piece right.

    I think that one piece would look best without any side pleats or with elements that add 'casuality' to the shirt. IMO side pleats are more formal, too formal probably for one piece soft collar. Would be interested to hear what others think
