Thanks Newcomer. Looking good yourself.

It is hard to tell with this fabric, but how impressed are you with Luxire's ability to nail details and measurements? Would you trust them replicating a "nicer" jacket?
Edit: I have used them for shirts, just on the fence about mailing in a jacket. They seem to be improving, but I have been waiting until I feel more comfortable.
Thanks. Yep. This jacket and three previous ones were made by duplicating (and improving) a Chan jacket I sent. The improvements made were broader shoulders, wider arms, and more rounded patch pockets.
I agree that it's very relaxed. Goes well w/ jeans. I'm even tempted to wear it w/ a t-shirt and jeans.
Looks great w/ the collar up too. I'll probably wear it that way while traveling on a cold plane or bus, or a chilly evening. It's the summer version of this hot-washed flannel jacket Luxire made for me a few months ago:

Here's the page for jackets.
They'll make anything you want. The first couple they made for me were totally deconstructed, w/ no padding, canvasing, or lining (except for the upper back, but not the sleeves) so they could be machine washed. I got this fabric from a furniture store called Cisco, which I think is based in LA.
I f-ing love the fabric and the jacket as it's constructed. I highly recommend upholstery linen. I'd hoped it'd be like tweed for warm weather (lots of texture, low maintenance, easy to dress up or down), and it is.
