    1) description says the pants will shrink, but can I just dry clean these pants rather than washing in dryer to avoid shrinkage?

    2) also, these pants look more gray than blue right?

    3) does it hold a crease?

    Looking to add this pair once I receive my current order to make sure sizing is good to go. Thanks!

    Completely agree. Tried several custom collar styles but the Luxire BD is generally my favourite - nice roll, proportional etc.

    I have a swatch of that fabric. It's significantly darker than that picture indicates. I'd say "indigo" is an accurate description of the color, with some grey as well.

    I might give that a shot - thanks a lot! What does CBD stand for?

    Has anyone had experience making a copy of a Brooks Brothers Black Fleece shirt?
    I'm interested specifically in the placket design at the bottom and rounded hem as seen below.
    Hoping to get an order number that I could reference. Alternatively, would including a link to the image and asking Luxire to copy the hem and placket be enough?

    I'm curious about the scalloped hem as well. Original BB shirts had them and the 19th Century Button Down by Engineered Garments features the same.

    People who have sent clothes to Luxire for replication/measurements. Did you use DHL or send the items via regular postal services?

    Cheers!

    It doesn't seem to calculate the price properly though. In the price table it says that the kind of item I'm sending, from group B, should be charged $30, but when I choose this option I'm charged $55(?!) It's still not that much money, but it seems weird that it's almost double the amount.

    Group B items were, about a month or two ago, when I last used it, $40 at the cheapest, with the other prices being $55 and $70. It seems the prices have lowered, at least in the table, but the actual price is behind the update.

    I am glad the prices for us living in Nowhereland has lowered!

    Regarding shipping to Luxire, how would we determine, "You also need to add the packet dimensions (length x width x height) and weight to the notes". Should we quote the required box size or the garment dimensions so that Luxire determine the required box?

    Additionally, what sort of duties could be charged when sending in old garments for replication? Is there any way to print a label to avoid this?

    Lastly, is the cost of returning the garment absorbed when the new garment is shipped out, so long as it qualifies for free shipping?

    I would be very attracted by this at a sufficient discount.

    As suggested elsewhere, it would make sense to let the customer specify "Nothing especially warm" or "Only especially warm fabrics" or "whatever you have".

    Luxire, if you wonder about the level of interest, consider this a positive vote!
