Anyone have any suggestions for summer pants (business casual) that are pretty versatile in color from Luxire?

I'm dealing with weather between 80-115 degrees soon here so, like I said.. definitely summer weight. But not as easy to wrinkle as linen.

The Summer Light Navy Chino is a lovely shade of blue, a touch lighter than navy (lighter than the other Navy Chino fabrics Luxire has, which are fairly dark), with a really nice light weight. Some may even think it too light for dress pants, but I think it'd be fine.

My only concern would be, as with most cotton pants, maintaining the crease - perhaps get the stitched crease like someone else suggested above.

Are you able to source shirting fabric like the following:

 

 

 

 


                                        80/2                                                                         100/2

 

 

                                       100/2                                                                         100s

 

 

 

 

 

                                140 twin dobby                                                             140 twin dobby

 

This is a good match to one of the designs shown above. Am sure we have a match for a few more of these. Will need to look through the fabrics and update.

Could anyone suggest a shirting fabric which would be suitable for a black tie?

Luxire,

 

Do you have any plans to get more colors in the same fabric as the Navy Summer Light Chino? Great light weight pants, would love some more.

Yes, a few more colors are being worked on. Hopefully in time for summer.

The material and printing are of the very best quality. Introductory price $49.99

My second attempt at MTM-shirts by Luxire. Adjusted  the first shirt in terms of reducing neck, yoke, sleeve width. Waist was also reduced slightly and "back panel" reduced by 1". Armhole and chest increased slightly. 

 

I'm quite happy with the fit, but now I'm almost thinking that the shirt sleeves are too long. Neck could be better as well I guess. I must say I'm quite happy with the way the shirt sleeves have been slimmed down.

 

And I must add that sky blue oxford is a nice cloth. So what do you think, good enough to order some more OCBDs (this is shirt #2) or anything that should be corrected before that? (Shirt fit now is not perfect, but I should add that all my OCBDs go under sweaters 99% of the time and I'm not going to wear them with a tie)

Looks fine to me.

Bear in mind I am a young guy, so probably I like my shirts to fit slimmer than you would like yours to do - I'd wash it several times, probably get rid of the center pleat and further slim down the sleeves, but it does look not too bad already.

Hehe, I hope that I don't look old... at 23. tongue.gif

 

IMO, chest is where it should be and waist could probably be reduced slightly, but I like my casual shirts (OCBDs) to not be much tighter, so alterations there would be nitpicking.

 

Why get rid of the center pleat?

 

I will wear it to uni tomorrow and see how it feels, and possibly reduce the sleeve width slightly. Sleeve width/bicep measurement is here at 8", what do you have your bicep measurement set to?

Any ideas on this shirt? I am not trying to thread crap, but I want to nail this down before Luxire becomes my MTM shirt maker of choice.

I would tighten up the armholes and maybe take some fabric out at the chest and waist. You can simulate the latter changes by pinning it up and seeing if it works better.
