I'm a sucker for florals, and this strikes me as both tasteful and fun to wear. The one item I was the most surprised didn't sell out. I've been lusting after these for months - gorgeous take on a familiar shape. Grey stripes are generally underrated. Easily one of the prettiest fabrics I've seen.
My linen coat arrived, and while I will post something a bit more substantial with better pictures after alterations, I thought I would share some quick pictures. The construction, fabric, and buttons are all amazing. Only issue is that the top button of the 3-roll-2 was somehow missing (buttonhole in place,) but that's easily fixed and I imagine it's a communication issue about what I wanted with the lapel. They hit all my weird pocket requests on the inside. In terms...

This is mine! I hadn't used Luxire before and wanted to use my first order as a bit of a fun experiment - I grabbed the first page I flipped to from my sketch book for clothing and sent it to them in an email with measurements. I wanted a linen trench with a bit of an exaggerated shape to it, almost like a morning coat but very casual.

I'm sure much of this was passed on through training between butlers, but...
Those Polo chelseas and that weird Barbera thing are everything I need in life.
http://custom.luxire.com/collections/linen-shirts/products/linen_pink_bengal_stripes_on_white I searched the thread, but couldn't find any extant pics - I would greatly appreciate if anyone had some shots of this as a shirt. I adore the colours and texture, but I need to see how it looks on a body-sized surface first.
I wish I could make it, but I'm back home for the summer. Have fun, everyone!
Does anyone know where I could find a black linen knit? Preferably a crew neck with a decently slim cut and a bit of a wider gauge knit to add some texture to it.
