Not a great photo, but a great material -- brown/black linen from the recent sale.
I steamed out the wrinkles (as much as is possible with linen) but haven't washed it yet. It'll be a little slimmer with a softer collar after that.
Again I have to object to the tie requirement, particularly if socks are optional. CM just doesn't mean the same thing in every industry, every culture and every part of the world.I'd rather have the option to participate with my kick-ass herringbone suit, pocket square, etc. than to be disqualified entirely.Please reconsider?
Thank you, gents. I encourage everyone to have Luxire make a coat; the process is very rewarding. Start with a lightweight less expensive material and make a spring/summer garment, get the fit right, and then move up to something luxurious that pulls out all the stops.
On the downside, it was 39 degrees. On the upside, brand new custom coat from Luxire just arrived.
