I would like some classic SF advice, however. I don't have a jacket that fits particularly well. I'm generally a 38s and I'm looking for some of the same types of cloths and styles available at Drakes... soft rounded shoulder with a higher gorge and wider lapel, patch pocket, but would like some additional details like a more rounded patch pocket, maybe a barchetta, and some nicer buttonholes than the regular (milanese?), but I'm not able to send them in a jacket.

I assume a 'practise jacket' is the most idea choice in this situation... though I don't see this as an option on their site...

 

You can only order a fit jacket if you also order an actual jacket/suit. So place your order for the jacket you want and add a $75 additional service. Then email Luxire details for the fit jacket. You can do as many fit jackets as you like (for $75 each) to dial in the fit, but you have to have an actual jacket on order.

Has anyone made this fabric up?  I really like the blue pinpoint oxford and was thinking about having the white made up as a dress shirt.

Only if you want it to wear like a sweater. It's light weight and soft. I think I would go with at least a full lining and some structure in the shoulders and chest.

Yeah I'm pretty sure my H&S were $350 last year. $200 for the Campore seems like a no brainer.

Before I order another jacket I want to make sure Luxire can do a natural shoulder a little better. I like the shoulders on my cotton unstructured jackets from Luxire, because they're completely unpadded and unstructured. On my VBC hopsack blazer, I still like the jacket a lot but I think I would like it better if the shoulders were more natural, and not as roped looking. I'm not sure what Kent Wang does, but I have a completely unstructured suit (which is 1/2 lined) from him in a lightweight 100% wool fabric that I think drapes really well, so I was thinking I could do something similar with one of these Campore fabrics.

What are the most popular business/work appropriate pants from Luxire?

For the shirts I just searched "Business" and a few ones came up.

Same situation with my order, which shipped the same day (10/30). I've emailed Luxire asking about it and I'm sure they will clear it up soon enough!

I've been very happy with my shirts and linen trousers, so now that winter is here it is time to get some winter weight trousers.  Anyone have any thoughts/comments on their corduroy offerings?  Any recommendations on flannels?  Ideally, I'd like to be <$150/ea.

I'm waiting on a pair of the Dugdale cords. They do a heavy (22-25oz) and a lightweight (15-16oz) option, both at $149.99. I'll post when they arrive, but that seems good value and the heavier option is something not usually available RTW. They're not specifically listed as Dugdale in the title, just search Corduroy and pick out the $149.99 pairs:

Most practical, and quite favourably reviewed on here, are the wool / poly or 'wool rich' blend. If you want to spend more some of the VBC solids are good:

Wool rich -

When is a cuffed hem a good option? Does it impact visual aesthetics in any way? Good for bottom heavy men? or just personal preference?

Are you opposed to moleskin? I have a pair of moleskin trousers that are great (Dugdale, though not sure they're labelled as such on the website). I'd imagine the Dugdale trousers in general would be good and they do have some corduroys.

Dugdale flannels are okay for $179, though they are worsted and not woolen flannel. I greatly prefer the Minnis flannel, but they're $300 a pair. I do think it's worth paying up a bit for a good pair of grey woolen flannel trousers, but of course YMMV.
