http://luxire.com/ is a new website making good ready-to-wear dress shirt sand aiming to produce high quality made to measure shirts.

“Dress shirts that fit”, is a difficult slogan to live up to for a ready-to-wear shirt maker. I would say that Arnaud Rousseau can claim a right to that tagline.

The website is taking the right approach - easy to read (no white letters on a big black background - which I personally hate), easy to navigate and order. Shirts start at $30 to 60. (Yes that is not a typo)!

I ordered these patterns:
1x Blue Checks Stripe - Blue / 16/34-35 for $29.99
http://luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/blue-checks-stripe-dress-shirt

1x Sky Blue Hairline Stripes / 16.5 /35-36 for $29.99
http://luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/sky-blue-hairline-stripe-dress-shirt

I like Luxire dress shirts approach to fit. In terms of size, they are pretty standard for most boutique shirtmakers. In my measurements, they were close to the fit of Brooks Brothers. But what makes it even better is the tailoring. The mid-section is tapered, sleeves are slim and the armholes are slightly smaller. Overall, the shirts give you a more stylish and slimmer look than most ready-to-wear shirts. No billowing fabric at your.

The quality and attention to detail is way above the price. Good100% cotton fabric, 7 front buttons with a horizontal bottom button hole,fused, layered collar, 20 stitches per inch, split yoke on most shirts,mother-of-pearl buttons, removable steel collar-stays, yes steel collar stays.

The blue checks I ordered is one of those fun patterns that work well as a sport shirt or a dress shirt with a necktie is less serious occasions.

The hairline stripe would work well for most business occasions.They currently have an excellent mix of designs and colors.
One less desirable feature, is that the shirts have adjustable sleeves - two cuff buttons -- you choose the one for your sleeve length.

As if the fit is not surprising enough, the pricing does make you think. My first reaction after looking at the price was that it probably was one of the run-of-the-mill mass shirt makers with a fancy tagline. But, after seeing the fabric, quality, fit and attention to detail, -- these shirts are certainly a bargain.

Shirts start at $30 and go up to $60. Free shipping, free returns and satisfaction guarantee makes it beyond compare.
Plus they offer a large selection of tasteful silk knots cufflinks for around only $4 a set!!

I'm trying to figure out something.

I believe I am approximately a 17.5 and 35/36, but I don't find that size available in several shirts I looked, nor in their sizing chart.

Am I looking in the wrong place? Will a representative of their company be posting here?

Thank you.

:icon_viking:

Edit/Follow up: I went back to the website and a chat box opened up, the person confirmed that they simply don't make my size, unfortunately. The chat box is very convenient for questions and so forth, just too bad they don't make my size.

Eh that's what I get for being too fat.


But. . . after some delay another message has come up stating that they will be adding more sizes in January and also will be doing MTM. They are aiming for a turnaround time of 5 working days on the MTM, which would be rather amazing, wouldn't it?

He says if I order one now and it doesn't fit well, it can be returned to New Jersey, from where they ship. Free shipping both ways as well.

Nice looking stuff, I'm going to think twice about ordering what they have now, which is a 17.5 with a 37 sleeve, I think it is just too long. Probably wait till January.

:thumbs-up:

The shirts have a really nice collar design, but the cuffs are nothing special and the shirts all seem to have pockets.

That was my suggestion to them - offer monograms, and choices for no pocket, and different cuff selections!

Nice to see an easy to find size chart, the one dimension they are lacking (maybe I missed it - most other sites don't list it either) is the yoke width.

It does seem a little odd that the only payment options are PayPal or direct bank transfers. Why no option for paying with a credit card?

You use your credit card on PayPal but I think it's a much safer system.
