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.

I sent in a Zegna jacket and it was duplicated exactly. I posted pics on the Luxire thread.

emiristol, that is great.

Looking really good @emiristol. I do agree with the poster in the other thread that those shoes even in a slightly more casual blucher model would work a bit better, but that's basically nitpicking at this point.

 

Sort of a casual "northern lights" for me today:

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. shog[1].gif
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.
