Just received a package in the mail from Luxire! I gave them a very challenging assignment and it became a long and difficult journey... I won't get into all the details here, but April 2014 I placed an order for an unstructured patch pocket navy blazer. There were some miscommunications along the way but Ashish and I worked out an agreement that would allow them to regain my confidence and follow through with my intent to order more jackets in the future. Let me tell you...
Please let us know how that fabric holds its shape and whether it shrinks much in the wash. I think it would be great for a summer popover.
I would wear, launder and iron them a few times before you make any decisions.... they will relax quite a bit and I think you'll find the fit is pretty good (possibly a bit of extra material in the seat).
Would love to see the requester of those jeans post a fit.
I have a shirt in that fabric ordered... hopefully will receive it in the next few weeks and will post photos.
I think this is on topic: Very good looking men cannot pull off complex looks as easily (lots of patterns, bright colors, 'uncommon' articles of clothing) and are better off wearing well fitting, simple, co-ordinated outfits. Otherwise they are perceived as too high social value and try-hard or unrelatable to most people. (Think like this: a guy with 9/10 looks and 9/10 style is too far off the social value charts to be relatable) Less good looking men can pull off more...

Honest question, not trolling here... @PatrickBooth How do you mentally separate the idea of wearing a suit to a BBQ for your own comfort as being different from 'that guy' who wears cargo shorts on the red carpet (for his own comfort). Do you place any value in situational appropriateness? Is being comfortable more important to you than perhaps making the other guests feel uncomfortable? Or perhaps it's still that kid with the purple hair expressing the same message in...
I'm reiterating my desire for a Savile Row style tag: - Luxire - Hand Made for: Customer Name By: Maker's Name Date: 04/02/2015 Until then I will be requesting "no Luxire tags".
Love that jacket and love the introductory pricing, but I already have so many similar items in blue/navy. If it were another color (forest green or wine color) I'd be all over that. Very difficult to pass.
