 You mean make them wider, like the original jacket? That makes the collar gap even bigger. 
 This jacket was an experiment to begin with, so might as well give it a try.  Just to avoid any confusion, I've been a happy customer so far and have been one of Luxire's biggest advocates, which why I thought I'd give this a shot. Too bad the jacket didn't work out, but that doesn't mean I'll stop buying their pants and shirts, as they're much better at that. Just thought I'd post my experiences to help others.
 Got in at the discount price, so a $200 loss isn't too bad. I believe they're $400 now. The fabric is pretty cool, but be prepared for everything it touches to become completely blue. Might need to wash it several times. Maybe I'll wash it in hot water in the hope it'll shrink the shoulders.
 Asked for an exact replica, except for patch pockets and a slightly longer jacket and lower buttoning point. The shoulders aren't roped, they're just too big which means they hang way past my actual shoulders, and the sleevehead has been made way too puffy. The collar of the jacket is so big you'd probably need a 25" neck for it too fit. The fabric is cotton which of course wrinkles a bit more and doesn't drape as nicely as wool, but I was hoping Luxire would at least get...
 Pretty expensive insurance if you ask me.
Nope. As you can see, I'm holding a camera while wearing the other jacket as well. I tried to make the two pictures as similar as reasonably possible.
More like 100%. Wasn't there a Sicilian tailor who went from sub €1000 to €3500 when the dude from London lounge got involved? Pimping bespoke tailors is good business.
 Tucked in flaps are essentially the same as besom pockets, right?
Nope. I want a suit that's a bit more casual, and I want a blazer that's a bit more formal.I have regular navy worsted suits for when I need to be super CBD, but for casual Fridays and such a hip patch pocket AF blue fresco suit is perfect. So, it's not a compromise. For a very nice dinner on Saturday night a hip patch pocket AF blue fresco blazer is perfect as well. Again, it's not a compromise.Don't really see your point here.
