@emptym and @lefty and anyone's else who has had a jacket made, for that matter. Did you send in a sample jacket for replication? What are the limitations on Luxire's capacity to replicate the "guts" of the jacket? Were you relegated to getting the jackets unstructured?
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.
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.
