It is already a cheap jacket. It is a military style jacket I wear in the fall. Breathability isn't a concern, it isn't a sport coat although I would understand why my question was misleading. I just haven't ever had a waxed jacket before and I am concerned that without the buffer of a lining it will always feels greasy and get my shirts waxy. I would like to make it water repellent though.
Would it be a mistake to wax an unlined jacket? Will the wax bleed through and get all over whatever I am wearing?
Can anyone speak to the breathability of the cotton canvas fabrics. I would like an unlined jacket and pants but don't want to spend the money that won't let air pass through easily.
I assume dying nubuck is like dying suede, which I have done. My main point of advice would be to be VERY careful when taping off your soles. Make sure everything is well covered and that the tape is firmly pressed down. I thought I did a good job taping off my bucks but there are a few places on my soles where the dye dripped over and stained the sole.
I have been considering having Luxire make me a bike jersey and I am thinking I might use this fabric. Any opinion on on whether this would be a good fabric option?
For those of you allowing for shrinkage, did you make your own adjustments to your measurements or did you just ask Luxire to add an allowance to account for shrinkage in laundry?
Probably not. I have received three orders from them. Each has taken roughly 6 weeks for delivery.
I somehow completely missed this. Thanks for pointing it out, I appreciate it.
Has anyone ordered a shirt for black tie? I am unclear as to whether I need to supply any special specifications. Frankly I could probably use advice on nearly all aspects since I have never before owned my own black tie rig. Obviously the shirt should be white, probably with turn back cuffs, but that is about all I know.
I have a pair of suede AEs where the suede has cracked, for lack of a better term, at the stress points on each shoe. Because of the crack I can see through to what I believe is the sock liner. I am going to take them to my shoe guy to see if he can fix them, but anyone have suggestions on how to avoid this problem in the future. This isn't my first pair of suede shoes, but it is the first time this has ever happened.
