Hands-on: Lumina Clothing

Lumina Clothing creates durable clothes using quality materials, right here in the USA and sells them at prices that make sense.

Their clothes reflect a southern textile heritage as the company calls North Carolina home. When handling their shirts, the first thing I noticed was extra detailing around the buttonholes and the heft of the buttons themselves.

Their sizing options are a bit unique; there is the standard small, medium, and large. But they also have “+” sizes, for example, “Medium +” is between a medium and large. This is great for all of us out there that are between sizes.

They sent me a small shirt, and while I am not the heftiest guy in the world, the cut was very slim in the chest but fit everywhere else perfectly.

They also sent along one of their ties, which you can tell is a quality piece the moment you handle it. Not too wide or too skinny it is a great piece for today’s modern gentleman.

All in all, Lumina Clothing are doing great things in North Carolina. They offer great shirts with a slimmer fit, higher armholes, a shallow collar, and detailed stitching on the cuff buttons that are an awesome alternative to any big brand mass-produced offerings.
