    @luxire Are any of the additional colours for pique cotton polos going ahead still? I remember there was a fair bit of interest in an orange/ burnt orange, and maybe a dark green?

    They are all unfused.

    We did receive 2, grey and wine, in linen-cotton.

    Will try and make them available on the site tomorrow.

    I'm also having this problem as shown in my pics. Is it possible to reduce the angle through alterations @luxire ?

    I've made one order earlier and are now planning for some flannels.

    Here's a pic I snapped of the shirt I'm wearing today - Luxire standard BD with 3.5" points, unfused and unlined in a linen-cotton fabric:

    They're still working on my shoes. Lots of delays over the past few months, but there's a chance they may be finished in about a month from now. I'll be sure to post pics and a full review here when I get them.

    Hi guys!

    I just received my second Luxire shirt and was hoping to receive some feedback before placing my next order. Following some suggestions in this thread, I ordered the pink end-on-end fabric. It's nice - certainly much dressier than the previous pale pink oxford that I ordered (not to say that the oxford wasn't nice as well).

    Here are some photos that I took with some linen pants. The shirt hasn't been ironed yet, as I was eager to get these photos up and place my next order.

    Is there anything that you guys see that you would change? From my observations, it's a little billowy in the back. Would you guys also extend the shoulders (I have pretty broad shoulders for my height)?

    Thanks!

    Not an expert at all when it comes to this so I'll just touch on your concerns with the back of the shirt. Waist measurement on the front looks fine, but for your next order you could always specify that you want a 1/2 inch (or whatever the correct number may be) more taken from the back.

    Interesting - thanks a lot for the help. A few quick follow-up question to your recommendation:

    1) If my current waist measurement is 20.50", would I keep it at 20.50" and just request that 0.5" or so is taken off from the back?

    2) Doesn't taking fabric only off the back panel make the shirt uneven when you lay it down flat?

    Thanks again!

    Hopefully someone could expand on this to help you out a bit more than I can. Many people in this forum have specified that they use a different measurement for the front and back of their shirts to avoid this. I've never seen anything too dramatic as its usually just an inch different max. Sorry for my lack of knowledge.. waiting on my first custom shirt to be delivered from Luxire, so I'm still learning as well.

    I didn't have this problem with my last pair, so it seems like they've fixed it.

    No worries at all, and thanks for your input. Hopefully someone wouldn't mind chiming in on the best way to adjust the billowing as well as any other adjustments that I could make! :)

    The rise looks great on those. Are you willing to share the measurements of the top block?
