I just ordered the 16oz version so I can wear the coat from September to March and not just in winter. I am going to keep you in the loop. However, I haven't submitted my full specifications yet.

Any plans for a polo fabric in brown?

I think I dun goofed.
On both my promotional pricing offers, I put the promotion code in the special notes section. I didn't put it into the pricing page or anything. I was assuming the price difference would be given as a credit.
Yooops

Congratulations!  Are you planning on providing them measurements (using the online form they have) or are you sending in another coat to copy?

Has anyone tried the grandi and rubinelli cam 200 range and can give comments as to wrinkling and thinness of fabric? Thanks! the link to the fabric is below

Cheers! As Luxire has already made two suit jackets for me (+1 in the making), I assume they will be able to translate the measurements to an overcoat. What I found very helpful is to provide a pdf-document with mock ups that I create with SketchUp & Photoshop (As you can tell, I am not an expert :D ). This document will probably include measurements for the sleeve length and back length as these are very different to a suit jacket.

@luxire is the autumn code still valid? Want to place an order later today.

My Sunday brunch wardrobe today included a Luxire white dress shirt and the maiden voyage of the just-arrived Campore Light Tweed trousers. This stuff is hella nice and I can't recommend it strongly enough -- it's very soft, cashmere-esque really. Very luxurious. Right at home here with Mr. Ford's blazer. biggrin.gif Code for this one is "TC_12402_Perivale", it's 8 oz, woven in Italy and was $200.

Sorry for the quality of the photos; I was running late. The colour in the detail shot is the most accurate.

I've got this one.

In regards to wrinkling it is brutal. It's so bad I think I've only ever worn the shirt once. It wrinkles as much as my linen shirts which is not a great look for the office.

I've also got the G&R white twill which at $130 is really nice and not that wrinkly.

Very nice, CruzAzul.  I think you need matching jacket in that tweed.

post #20366 of 24669

@CruzAluz: very nice.  Thanks for reminding me about those tweeds.  I think I'm going to have to get a couple

Has anyone ordered (and admit to have doing so) pants that have both belt loops and the elastic button (Daks) adjusters?

 

I know some of you might consider this sacrilegious.  I actually like the look of Daks or the other pull adjusters for times when you are wearing a suit or a sports coat. 

 

However, I prefer belts for more casual looks.  The problem is that my waist size tends to fluctuate a bit from time to time and I don't like it when the belt makes the waist bunch up at the back. I was thinking that the button adjusters could actually have a more functional (rather than style-driven) purpose in this context, helping me cut down on the bunching while being discretely hidden by the belt.

 

Has anyone tried something like this?

About to send measurements to luxire for a shirt

I am having trouble working out how to measure "sleeve length"

The description on the site suggests:
Measure the sleeve length by beginning at the center of the yoke(Red arrow) right to the end of the sleeve (Green arrow)

To me the centre of the yoke should be directly below the middle of the back of the collar

However the photo that is associated with this description seems to suggest that they are not actually measuring from this point, but rather the most lateral point where the yoke meets the collar




I am getting a sleeve length of about 31" using the latter method (from the lateral junction of collar and yoke), versus a length of about 33" when using the method as described (from the "centre of the yoke")
I am bout 177cm, average length arms

Can anyone give any insight? Sorry if I am being dumb

I measured mine from the horizontal center and the vertical top, and the sleeves came out just as I'd expect.

This is great. May I ask how it drapes? Is it wearable during late autumn?
