For the denim, we would like to know your preferences. We know that selvedge is loved and cherished. Apart from that, what would your wishlist be - for finishing options, garment options, denim color options, denim type options and denim weight options ?

Awesome news :)

 

11-13.5 oz is great, but another couple around 15-16 oz would make me happy with the range. Colour wise, we need a dark black.

If you are going to, you need to have weights up to 17 oz. You need to have selvedge. It should be 100% cotton, preferably from Japanese mills or Cone Mill in North Carolina.

 

Why does it have to be comparable to $300+ denim brands? Why can't they just do quality, Levi's-tier non-raw options for those of us that want decent quality jeans with minimal fuss.

 

The majority of denim wearers don't care about insane quality denim and super high quality sewing and options.

If you've been on the fence about that particular cloth/pattern, I can recommend it. It dresses up and down quite easily depending on the rest of your outfit (I ordered mine with no interlining).

 

The odd part is that is was the shirt I was least excited about, but the one I ended up liking the most.


My first shirt from Luxire as well. The fabric definitely feels heavier and nicer than most of the RTW shirts I had before. It's used to be $59 btw.

Not sure if an unline collar is appropriate for this type of fabric though. What kind of collar did you order?

Classic collar, 2-3/4" height at back. I work as a software developer in a jeans/shorts/sandals environment (no ties, jackets, or suits). It's an interesting choice and probably not as obvious as you think except to the most observant of dressers.

Quilting in  progress for a jacket. Should be ready next week.

 

Done completely on a single needle machine, the work is slow, painstaking but impressive.

Would it be possible to request embroidery on the front of a shirt? The family crest for example.

Yes. That can be done. Would be an additional charge though.

I see I made wise choices.

How would I get the best collar roll? Completely unlined and unfused? Or unfused with light interfacing? I figured I'd use the 3 7/16ths that Mercer uses on it's collars.

Placed an order for 6 shirts from Luxire now. 

 

2x sky blue oxford, 1x navy shadow stripes oxford, 1x warzone white oxford, 1x blue university stripes oxford and 1x pale mauve stripes oxford.

 

Yes, I'm totally renewing my shirt collection and as you might have guessed I hardly ever wear suits/SCs, so all casual shirts this time around. At 395$ total w/shipping, 65$ pr. shirt, I think it's a deal hard to beat, when you know what you are getting in terms of quality and sizing. I just hope their consistency issue is no issue anymore... :p

 

If you saw the previous pictures I posted of my second shirt from Luxire I'm going with a plain back (change from box pleats) and reducing/tapering sleeve from elbow and up by 0.5".

The six shades of denim. The top left and bottom right are for shirts.

Will post better images soon.

 

Agree with all the thoughts. Interesting discussion.

 

Gave Teger's assertion some thought and I think it has been misread.

I read it as, if we want to do it, we better do it right. There is more to denim than what meets the eye and we must be up for it if we want to make it.

 

What I believe is that the first jeans that would be made would still be better than many we are glad to buy. But, in a few months, they would be as good as any we can buy.

 

Do keep the thoughts coming.
