They back up their craftsmanship with responsive customer service and if they make a mistake they are generally quick to remedy it or offer a solution.


+1.  I think your comment are dead on.  The customer service, communication and flexibility make Luxire a very special company.  Definitely a markedly better experience than any other MTM online service.

 

@irunfast: the one caveat is that you need to be a little patient and realistic.  As good as the service is, you can't expect that people at Luxire pyschic.  It takes a few tries to get the fit dialed in, so you need to be prepared to invest a little.  Having a well-fitting garment helps, but you there may be a need for further teaking. 

 

Also, although rare, there may be inadvertent mistakes in the production/copying process and a measurement or two may be off.  There are honest mistakes that happen in any businesses with so much customization and you need to be understanding of that. I think that the important thing to remember here is that Luxire is always willing to rectify the problem and to leave the customer satisfied.  Occasionally, you will see posts here of people who are unsatisfied, but in my opinion, the vast majority of the time, there is some sort of misunderstanding at root of the issue or people are plainly just being unreasonable.

Regarding pricing, will all of these styles be offered at $90 for the initial trial?

-shawl collar cardigans
-v-neck
-roll-neck
-cable knit

Also are patterns possible or solid colors only at this time?

 

All of the above :)

 

We can do multiple colors and complex designs.   Something like below is possible, for example.

Really interested in the Coffee Brown Tweed and the Charcoal Grey Birdseye for my next pants.  Do you think I can wear these for work if I typically just wear Luxire Chinos + Luxire shirt tucked in without a tie to work?

Just emailed you guys about this via your "contact us" page on the website, was that the correct way or is there some other email I should actually have written to?

Yeah that's what I use to contact them and they always reply. May be a day or so for a response.

They seem more than willing to try new designs and work with a customer on very specific requests. Their pricing is very competitive. 

Waiting for them to respond to my mail, seems to me they used the wrong fabric on a pair of pants in my last order. That said, everything else has been great - get your pattern sorted, then order and just sit back and wait for it to ship.

I think it could be fun to go shopping in NYC for wool or cotton that strikes my fancy and then buying it, shipping it to have it put on a suit--or shirt--just for me. I know a lot of the fabric stores closed in Manhattan, but there must be some left? Acorn I know sells their cottons direct to consumer and has a good website, which is very very rare in this industry...

Yes they do - mail them for current pricing. My recollection is it's more expensive than even using some of their basic house fabrics, and they want more yardage than my usual tailor, probably to minimise the consequences of a cutting error.

Also bear in mind Luxire have historically been very open to establishing a relationship with new mills / merchants, so there's every chance they can obtain something directly and at a better price than you sourcing for CMT.

1. Blackwatch shirt :)

2. Summer wool: A hopsack in 100% wool. Perfect during the warmest days.

3. Linen-cotton canvas. We think it will be loved the most this summer. Available in 22 colors. Already available.

Absolutely.  That is basically the same way I dress at work and the Coffee Brown Tweed's that i have definitely work.

I have ordered many items from Luxire and I've been very pleased with their shirts and trousers. Jackets are still IMO somewhat of a work in progress in that I am not yet convinced that they can reliably make a jacket with soft shoulders. This is after three jacket orders to date, based on an Attolini jacket that I sent in. Their 'house' style seems to be a more structured and roped shoulder. However, they have been accommodating and I think genuinely interested in improving their tailored jackets. Buttonholes, for example, are much better on my most recent jacket.

This is literally the best news I've heard all year!  :rimshot:

 

I just put in my details for a midnight blue roll neck sweater!

post #21101 of 24968
Luxire - can you give us an idea of the measurements you will need for the sweaters?
post #21102 of 24968
Looking forward to some merino knitwear.

Of course - in that case, I have also tried "White Pinpoint Oxford". I would consider it to be just a shade less formal than actual CBD shirts like a voile or a poplin. I have mine made up in a nice English Spread collar (duplicated from a bespoke number), and the Luxire standard fused construction actually gives it a REALLY nice roll. You might want to try that with yours.

 

Alternatively, not an oxford per se, Brisbane Moss' shirting collection is great. I would say they are casual to the extent that I wouldn't wear them with navy/grey worsted, but I will wear it with everything else. You can search for my posts in this thread, I posted a few photos of that fabric in action.

 

Good luck!

I received my new shirt in Light Powder Blue Twill from Luxire a couple of days ago. Great fit, and great fabric. It looks really wrinkled on the picture, put that's just because the picture was taken after some heavy wear.

 

 

How do you guys like to collar? Would you consider it "classic"? Would some changes make it more "classic"?
