post #18931 of 18936

For jackets, do you generally just send them a picture to give them a starting point?

 

I've bought about 10 shirts from them now and have been very happy with the results thus far, but ordering a custom jacket online is a much more complex endeavor.

After being very pleased with the results of my recent shirts I would like to get my first pair of pants.

 

I am looking for a versatile cloth, that is suitable for temperatues as low as 10° as it is suitable for temperatures close to 24°, without me freezing / swetting all along.

 

What kind of cloth could you recommend? Is there anything specific I should look out for, regarding the weight of the cloth for example?

 

Thanks in advance!

I think you'll be much better off sending them a jacket that fits you reasonably well as a starting point - jackets are a lot more complex than a shirt. They also offer a wearable test-fit jacket that I think is very much worth while - it's an unstructured jacket made out of cotton khaki, and I think having a first iteration as a test makes a lot of sense (I just received my test fit jacket today, and I'm very very impressed).

My only recommendation would be to get a swatch before making a big investment because some of the neutrals are hard to photograph.

I like the colour, and I like that it is mostly opaque, these trousers for instance are not lined to the knee unlike my other white chinos. I wouldn't describe the fabric as wrinkle prone, but what you see in these images is after 6 hours of wear, initially they were pressed but they loose the crease during the day and start to look more casual. For that reason, if I were to redo them, I'd opt for a slimmer leg below the knee, since once they loose the crease, they are slightly too wide.

The fabric is a little on the heavier side which I like, though it can get hot in these during the summer, then again that's what makes them wearable in spring and autumn as well (labour day yada yada...).

 

The fabric, while costly, is much nicer than the less expensive noname white trousers I got prior to this through Luxire. In addition they are much easier to care for i.e. removing smudges and stains and ironing is very simple, likely due to a high quality textile finishing. Overall I can recommend these at 149.99

 

Thanks guys. I think i'll have to buy blind, as the last two times i've asked for swatches, Luxire hasn't been able to provide me with them. I'm looking for something versatile and semi dark. I am thinking about going to their tobacco color, as I think it will fit the bill, and look nice with lots of different sport coats. I am basing the color off of this photo more so than the luxire stock photo.

 

Open to color suggestions if people have some. Currently, I have a pair of olive pants that needs replacing, a pair of navy that I just got from luxire and I love, and a pair of the luxire copper khaki ones that are pretty popular here. I don't mind the fabric but the fit isn't perfect on those ones. And just ordered some stone colored ones that I'm sure will fit well but haven't arrived yet. Looking for a pair of cotton chinos I can wear with different sport coats to work. I'm still building my sport coat collection, but it will be lots of earth tones, navy, brown, olives, etc.

, could you tell me what the weight is for the grey pique please? 

Cellulare.

This pic is on page 1, is the shirt Luxire? If so, does anyone have an order # or description for the collar?
