I think I understand what you're saying about back balance, I'll mention to Luxire and see what they can do on my next order. Could the sleeves also be bunching because they are just too long?

The bunching is localized around the back side, around your elbow. That's what makes me think it's the shape/balance that is wrong, not the overall length.

Gotcha. Thanks again for the critique!

Is anyone planning on having a jacket constructed with the Minnis fabrics anytime in the near future?

Luxire, are you planning on stocking piqué cotton for polo shirts?

Pulled the trigger on my first Luxire shirt last night--excited to see how it turns out.

Hmm, that's an interesting question.

I would be interested in polo shirts as well. Anyway, finally got my 4th order shipped. Hope I nailed down my measurements for sure this time. Kinda funny that I got a much faster reply by PMing Luxire in the forum instead of emailing.

Is it 1 fabric per swatch?

Coming soon :)

 

I sometimes wonder about the timing of these questions.

1 fabric = 1 swatch = $1

It was 70F here yesterday and I donated literally every polo shirt I owned at the end of summer. It appears Mother Nature and a wardrobe void are forcing my curiosity.

In any event, glad to be Johnny-on-the-spot.

Edit: Uh apparently my phone opened the thread on an old post and I replied to something from way back, never mind.

Nothing beats polos when the mercury rises. The question was perfectly timed. thumbs-up.gif

I did this too a few years ago. I am back to Polos, however. Wearing coat & tie during the Winter in a business casual environment is one thing. In the Summer it is pushing it.

Agreed. I'm going to switch mostly to pop-overs in linen or an open-weave cotton, but I want a couple polos in the rotation as well. The only maker I've been able to find that fit me well OTR are Boast. And, unfortunately, their logo only lends itself to weekend wear.

I have a couple linen polos from Polo and they're my favorites. But for really hot weather, seersucker's best imo. I love Patagonia's cotton poly/blend seersucker. Probably the best hot weather fabric I've ever used.
