    Edit: Uh apparently my phone opened the thread on an old post and I replied to something from way back, never mind.

    Nothing beats polos when the mercury rises. The question was perfectly timed. [​IMG]

    I did this too a few years ago. I am back to Polos, however. Wearing coat & tie during the Winter in a business casual environment is one thing. In the Summer it is pushing it.

    Agreed. I'm going to switch mostly to pop-overs in linen or an open-weave cotton, but I want a couple polos in the rotation as well. The only maker I've been able to find that fit me well OTR are Boast. And, unfortunately, their logo only lends itself to weekend wear.

    I have a couple linen polos from Polo and they're my favorites. But for really hot weather, seersucker's best imo. I love Patagonia's cotton poly/blend seersucker. Probably the best hot weather fabric I've ever used.

    I am way anti logo, but I make an exception with polos. My impressive physique means the custom fit PRLs fit me well enough off the shelf.

    I switched to the RL "custom fit" version only since the regular cut was ridiculously baggy and looked bad. The custom fit is decent but not perfect...so if Luxire can do a truly custom fit, that would be great.

    So it appears that the goal of Luxire is to eventually provide a full range of bespoke men's clothing at reasonable prices? From casual to formal and the spectrum in between? Although that's a pretty ambitious goal, Luxire is more than half way there already.

    I'm trying to gradually switch my wardrobe from one of large quantities of OTR with acceptable to mediocre fit to that of higher quality, lower quantity custom fit? Anyone else here reach that same mindset and trying to make that transition?

    Sorry for the prior post -pulled the trigger too fast. Yes, I have a shirt in that fabric and it wrinkles like crazy. I only use luxire for casual shirts though. I wouldn't wear them to work with a tie.

    I'm with you. I have freakishly long arms, and it was always tough to find good OTR shirts. Thankfully, despite some small fit issues after a couple of orders I'm still working through, Luxire has been far and away the best quality and fit of shirt I've had.

    I'm curious as to why? Originally I liked them mostly for my oxford, but now they have replaced everything.

    What is the difference between "Royal" and "Classic" oxfords?

    Royal is a much different fabric. It's smoother, softer (often), shinier. A tighter oxford cloth.

    The classic oxford is... a classic oxford (thick).

    The royal oxford is lighter, a finer weave. Doesn't wear as hot.

    My first online MTM shirt is ordered. I've based measurements off another MTM shirt so hopefully the fit isn't too bad first time around.

    I'll post pics once it arrives.

    Same here...still wearing a hodgepodge of altered adult clothes in the smallest sizes available OTR and some bigger kids' clothes from high school. Trying to mature up my wardrobe while getting a better, more comfortable fit with better quality materials. I've NEVER had an OTR that I could reliably depend on.

    For those complaining about the propensity of the Lustrous Fine White fabric to wrinkle, you might want to look at the White Royal Oxford as an alternative. I have a couple of shirts made from their blue 80/2 royal oxford fabric, and it is surprisingly resistant to wrinkles. While I haven't bought a shirt in the White Royal Oxford fabric yet, I have a swatch of it, and IMHO it would make a good basic white dress shirt.
