The Luxire shirt is the fourth and last shirt of my recent order. It’s my favorite of all the shirts yet. The rather strong oxford fabric of the shirt just gives the perfect collar roll.

Hi there! Impeccable dressing today! The MTM SS suit looks fantastic. Can't wait till they open up in my city. Anyway, can you give any details in the Luxire collar (order #, point length)? /Fred

Answer:

Hi chefen123, thanks a lot. I’m happy you like it. The Luxire order number is #7814. I’m still waiting to upload a comprehensive post of this order, until I have worn the fourth and final shirt.

This is the image that I have sent to Luxire for this order. I haven’t checked the exact measurements of the finished shirts, though. You might want to wait for that, although I don’t think that there are significant differences.

Also, for my next shirt, I might reduce the tie space by appr. 0,5-0,75 cm. I’m not quite sure about that. I asked Luxire for a tiespace of ~1,0 cm and the space on this shirt seems to be a little larger.

I guess building up lots of excitement in the last week wasn’t bad at all because I totally love this suit.As for the main specifications: I chose a (suitsupply) spalla camicia shoulder, wide lapels, single pleats, side adjusters, 2” cuffs. The white shirt is the third shirt of my most recent Luxire order. The collar is similar to the collar I wore on 7.31.14.Finally, a short reminder to myself: I need suspenders.

After picking up the new suit last week, I waited until this morning before I wore it for the first time. I guess building up lots of excitement in the last week wasn’t bad at all because I totally love this suit.

As for the main specifications: I chose a (suitsupply) spalla camicia shoulder, wide lapels, single pleats, side adjusters, 2” cuffs.

The white shirt is the third shirt of my most recent Luxire order. The collar is similar to the collar I wore on 7.31.14.

So this is the second Luxire shirt that I’ve received a couple weeks ago. The blue fabric in its micro herringbone texture is a little darker than the blue shirts I usually wear. However, once the sunlight shines on the shirt, the color of the shirt really brightens up.
Overall, I’m very happy with this shirt. Especially the texture gives something special to the outfit, since you can’t really see the texture until you look at the shirt very closely.
What I like most about the shirt, though, is the collar shape. In my first Luxire order last year, I tried modifying a already designed collar by another customer. This time, I’ve created my own collar shape, with all the angles and measurements. The collar is only lightly lined and unfused (same for the cuffs).
