    Is that a hidden button down collar on the second shirt?

    Which white fabric is this G-man?

    Short sleeved shirts get a bad reputation due to most of them not having fitted sleeves. This one with it's sloping shoulders looks very good on you.

    If it comforts you, you are just a minor offender. Now imagine.

    Is this the Italian collar? What is the height (rear) of the collar? Around 1.6" (~4 cms)?

    These are beautiful shirts. Thanks. Hope to use your services soon. Am looking for office shirts with a bit of flair (collars - like 2" height, Italian, semi-spread, Marconi II but with one button etc.) - not familiar with fabric specifications though. What fabric would you recommend in solid blue, white, pink and perhaps some stripes here and there?

    I have my second order being carried out right now, and couldn't be more stoked to see the result!

    Luxire, mayhaps I could ask you some questions?
    I'm curious of your ability to provide wider and thinner MOP buttons for shirts, something like this.

    Would this be possible? How much would that cost I wonder?

    I'm also Very interested in your progress with leather, do you have any samples of jackets you could show off perhaps?

    Cheers, can't wait to see your latest work!

    Yesterday I received my first shirt from Luxire and I am very disapointed with the results, a few pictures:

    I assume you're disappointed in the fit? Did you sent in body measurements, shirt measurements, or what?

    Online MTM is always a bit of a crapshoot on fit until you get your measurements dialed in, especially if you're going off body measurements.

    Also I asked for a collar like this one:

    They told me that the collar they did is similar than the one I ask for but in my opinion both collars are completly different but maybe I am wrong...

    The main thing as it is very clear are the huges wrinkles at the chest because my type of shoulders, also I ask for a soft sleeve shirring and I got something similar to a lady shirt.

    I sent body and shirt measurements and also pictures of myself explaining the problem with my sloping shoulders, in my opinion a very complete information but not enough I guess...

    So now you have a better idea of what to adjust for your next order.

    The default cuts of online MTM outfits differ from one another. If you say "more" sloping, you'll get different results from each maker.

    Adjust your measurements, get feedback from Theresa, and have fun building your wardrobe.

    Collars always look a little more spread when the shirt is folded than when the same collar is worn on your neck. Also, try wearing without collar stays to let the collar roll a little. It may look closer to how you want. Not sure.
