Any plans to make replacement flat waxed laces available for purchase? I've worn through mine and the locally available laces just aren't the same.
Ideally yes but I'm not sure exactly what gets recorded with each order. I would love to have more information so that, as you say, I could do a better job of micromanaging my orders. I'm a bit neurotic about consistency.A few times now I have said "same as order XXXX" but have recieved different results (not attributable to fabric differences) so I have been using order numbers only to refer to fit and restating all of my other details with each order.
I find that the fabric itself also has a profound impact on the perceived stiffness. I have unlined shirts in heavier fabrics that maintain their collar shape better than some of my medium fused collars in lighter fabrics. It's always challenging to place a shirt order and get a consistent result, especially when the Luxire site doesn't always provide information about the fabric weight, thickness, stiffness, etc.
Actually I requested for them not to reproduce the hidden placket. It looks good on the Armoury jacket but I'd like the more casual look of the buttons.
$300. I had it in mind specifically for travel to hot humid countries. Requested inside zippered passport-sized pockets as well.
Just placed an order asking Luxire to reproduce the Ascot Chang Armoury Safari shirt jacket (with a few modifications). I'm excited to see the results. http://luxire.com/collections/pants-sorted-by-price/products/linen-olive-green-plain-pants Was going to order a CruzCoat (@CruzAzul 's design, here) but the Armoury jacket is a little closer to the length and collar that I wanted. Should come out being very similar though.
Wow those are nice. Can't justify ordering flannels at this time of year but I hope there is some of that left over (or reordered) for this autumn!
You're going to need better photos... like ones taken outside in daylight.
@TheBeardedGatsb I think it's probably the washable ink used by the tailors... I've had the same spots on mine and they come right out.
@GuP - looks pretty good! I would add a bit of length to the sleeve and possibly move the shoulder seams in a little bit. Maybe 1cm on your left shoulder and 2cm on your right shoulder (but that's more a matter of personal taste). @LeBeef - I would wait and see how your next shirt comes out. My recent order of 6 or so shirts had some variation in the fit as well... just goes to show that it doesn't pay off to have razor thin margins on shirt sizing. Leave a bit of room...
