Hoping to order some pants from Luxire soon.

 

Can anyone advise whether any of their pants fabrics are brushed cotton?

I'm pretty positive they have moleskin, if that's what you mean.

Hey, these might be mine! Although I ordered them in Stone Twill Chino, otherwise identical. First impressions are good. They are in the wash now and will see how they fit after that.

One issue I'm having is with the rivets — the copper ones might look good on jeans but I was hoping to get something a little more elegant for a fabric like this. The waist and fly buttons seem somehow cheap as well. Also, would have been nice if the rivets and buttons we're of the same material (or color).

Do you have any other options for rivets and buttons? I'm considering a similar 5-pocket design in a dressy wool fabric.

I am about 5'11" - what is a good shirt length to wear both tucked and untucked? 29inches?

jko, I think they're having their own rivets and buttons made. I'm sending over some hemp denim for a test. I've long wanted to try hemp jeans, they're almost impossible to get in a non-ultrabaggy cut.

Does anyone have pants in Bronze Brown Rich Twill? Would really appreciate pictures of this fabric, even just a picture of a swatch would be great.

Looks familiar. Pretty sure that is my flannel shirt. Love it!!

X-post. New luxire dugdale flannel and summer chambray. Shirt is spot on but the trousers need a bit of work for next order. Mostly a bit added to the thigh and the length has come in a little long, maybe only 1cm though so not too bad. One thing I was dissapointed with is I asked for full lining but the lining is cotton. In my experience, and maybe I've just been lucky fully lined trousers I've ordered in the past have been satin lined, point being to reduce friction on the legs, especially on fabric like flannel. I'd ordered them fully lined to wear with OTC socks but the cotton lining creates too much friction. I guess I better specify in the notes next time.

Shirt looks great, HC. You've really nailed the collar. Great tie, too (yours, I'm sure - we need a special luxire threaders discount)

Thanks, I think it still needs one more slight tweak to be not so spread and we'll be there. Yep one of my ties, no need for a Luxire thread discount we do a 10% site wide SF discount already. Best not to discuss in this thread though but you can check my affiliate thread on the first page for details or send me a pm.

What's the measurement of the spread and collar points in inches if you don't mind me asking? I'm still trying to nail my custom collar measurements.
post #11727 of 13269
It's based on this collar - http://propercloth.com/collar-styles/milano-ii-spread-collar but with 3.5 points and 1 button closure. Though I feel it's come out a bit more spread than that. I'll measure the actual distance for you a bit later.

Our experiments with bags continue...this one is made with unbleached canvas and full grain leather.

I agree. Looks like Milano II is less spread, a bit more pointy. 

Btw - lovely herringbone coat!

looking to start ordering some pants from luxire. and i'm wondering what the purpose of the lining is? do most people get lining and if so, to the knee or all the way to the bottom? thanks!
