My linen sale shirts and trousers haven't shipped yet either, burns think they're waiting to ship those with my jacket when that's ready. According the the most recent estimate, the jacket should be shipping by mid next week.
Those details sound perfect. Although, the shoulders on the jacket in the photo look slightly roped, which I wouldn't really expect to see on a less structured jacket.I went with the sand canvas...seemed like that would be an all-around good color that would be easy to pair with lots of different types of pants. The jacket is unstructured and unlined, and I went with 3r2 button configuration, medium brown horn buttons, wide lapels, dual vents, and patch hip & welted chest...
$400 for an unstructured jacket in Brisbane Moss canvas. My first jacket should be shipping in about 2 weeks. I shipped my jacket to Luxire about 7 weeks ago. I think there were some delays sourcing the fabric so it probably would have been ready quicker if they had the fabric in stock.
Absolutely, I'll definitely post pics and a review here once I get the jacket. If they stick to their estimated timeline I should have it around the beginning of April. I didn't even consider fabric choice, I hope it doesn't make a difference because I sent them a lightweight wool jacket and I'm getting a Brisbane Moss canvas cotton jacket made. The one good thing is that I sent in an unstructured jacket and I'm getting and unstructured jacket made, so hopefully that helps...
It's risky buying a jacket to make a suit with a pair of trousers you already have. Even if you order the same fabric, it may not match up exactly 100% with the pants you already have. But if you do want to have a jacket made, it's best to send in a well-fitting jacket for replication. Several other customers here have done that with really good results. My first jacket is being made right now based on a well-fitting jacket I mailed in. As per an email from Luxire...
Summer is practically here already! I know this angers everyone still battling through the winter, but it was 85 here yesterday. Need moar linen, and luckily this Luxire sale is exactly what the doctor ordered.
what a sale...picked up:
Blue Micro-Gingham Linen
Cotton-Linen: Blue Chambray
Sky Blue Cool Linen Cotton
Linen: Indigo Blue Mini Gingham
Linen: Indigo Pants
Linen: Drab Sand Pants
All in for 4 shirts and 2 trousers I think the total was right around $500. And judging by the quality of the linen pants I already have from Luxire, when you factor in their already low prices with this discount, under $100 for a pair of MTM linen trou has got to be the best deal anywhere...
