    Neat!

    Anyway, I took some pics of me wearing my new shirt from Luxire. My 3rd attempt and I am still playing around with the measurements a bit here and there. If anyone can give suggestion on how to improve the fit, that would be appreciated. For this shirt, I think the cuffs are about an inch or 1 and 1/2 inch too small. I am also not sure how to fix the two crease lines on my shoulders. Should I reduce the york and chest both by another inch?

    What's the turnaround on pants looking like, if it's about two weeks for shirts as you said? I ordered about two weeks ago (January 27th), order 2617. I don't need the pants urgently, just eager to try them on and fiddle with the measurements and details.


    Also just want to mention that I had great success with the live chat in getting my account email changed. Someone helped me within a minute or two and it was quite pleasant.

    Thanks.

    You should wash your shirt before asking for fit advice imo.
    Why do you think the cuffs are too small?
    If I were you I'd worry more about the waist and hem measurement instead of the chest.
    I think you have too much fabric around your belt line.
    Have a look at following link and it's subitem 'Darts'.

    In your place I would begin with reducing the back of the waist.

    I would probably reduce the shoulder/yoke measurement by 0.5" (possibly up to 1"), bottom by 1 inch, chest by 0.5", and waist by 0.5." The first two adjustments are probably more necessary than the second two. The shoulders are slightly wide and it needs more taper, but the fit in the chest is arguably fine depending on how slim you like your shirts.

    Sorry! I was just too eager to get some feedback. Will wash and iron my shirt next time.
    Shouldn't the cuffs fall about an inch more when buttoned? That's why I thought they are too small. Though I can still put two fingers in between the space of the cuffs.
    Thanks a lot for the article link! I actually read it some weeks before but now that you've mentioned the part about darts, I think I sort of get it now.
    But how do I tell Luxire to reduce fabric on the back of the waist (cutting the back seams smaller than the front seams)? And how much?
    This is the measurements of the shirt btw:
    Yoke: 17
    Chest: 20
    Waist: 17
    Bottom: 19
    Thank you! My body is currently quite slim and my chest is not so much bigger than my waist and hip. I think for the next order, I'll experiment with reducing the yoke and chest measurements until I got it right.

    Very nice - which fabric is that? I'll post a review & some pics of my pants soon, soon as I wear them.
