Is that triple price for a fully canvassed jacket? Half canvassed? All fused? Can they do all three?

Best simply to email them and ask. Their default is full canvas. I have not asked about half canvas or fused construction.

@DavidLane thanks for posting a whole fit! I really enjoy what you wore on the photo (all the elements together, especially). As a bigger guy myself, I always appreciate it when bigger people are represented in a good light. That's why I follow Ethan Newton (formerly from The Armoury) and the likes!

 

I hope you haven't already been asked without me noticing, but how did you ended up with your Luxire's jacket measurements? You sent them measurements based on a well fitting jacket or sent them a jacket instead?

I appreciate your comments. Luxire is a blessing for big guys like me. For the measurements I sent in a bespoke sport coat I had made locally.

Did you notice any differences in the fit between the local bespoke jacket and the Luxire jacket?

Here's a reference point, at different price points. I inquired about Mersolair and Minnis Fresco/Flannel, all for a 3 piece.

 

If memory serves, Mersolair was $1000, Fresco $1100, and Flannel $1250...using the pant pricing as a baseline, this should get you reasonably close to an answer without contacting Luxire...though, direct inquiry is always going to be the most accurate.

 

As stated above, I don't believe there are any surcharges for full canvass, though there may well be price drops for half/fused...again, best bet is contact Luxire. I can't speak for all here, but I'm happy to share my knowledge on it, but Luxire is almost certainly going to be a better resource for such inquiries.

 

Also, best guess is they can do all 3. From what I've gleaned, you'll narrow the options better by asking what it is Luxire cannot do, as what they can do casts an extremely wide net :slayer:

Yes, minor ones. There is only so much you (Luxire), or anyone for that matter, can transfer even with the garment in hand. The most notable difference was the shoulder, which was different from the cotton "fit" coat I had made first. which is different from the original. I am hoping the third iteration is a charm as they say.

Thanks! I'm receiving my first Luxire jacket on Thursday and am looking forward to seeing how it comes out.

Might be a bit off topic (apologize in advance if so).  Does anyone happen to know of a good Tailor in NYC that you have used for altering Luxire pants.  I went to a Tailor here previously and their skills were clearly not up to par with the measures Luxire takes and it was very obvious to me where they made their alterations. Thanks in advance.

Thanks @ericgereghty. Its useful to have a ballpark guide, especially when I'm 'just browsing'.

Anyone have the Grey Wool Flannel (http://luxire.com/products/grey-wool-flannel)?

 

I am looking for some woolen mid/light grey flannel with some texture and these look nice. Instinctively I am sceptical about the 15% nylon content, but that may be just some irrational fear of synthetic fabric or snobbery.

 

And I am on a budget so the price is tempting.

post #21178 of 24692

Second iteration for pants. Better I think (ignore the shirt). Any suggestions for improvements?

What do you plan to wear them with? I have a pair and they're casual trousers, not formal - OK with tweed or corduroy but not easy to pull off with a smooth-finished jacket.

Synthetic content doesn't really show through in use, but as you can start to see from the close-up photos it's a very rustic weave with a lot of colour variation / mottling and also my pair have foreign objects in the weave as the yarn was obviously not carded very finely.

Overall I think this looks pretty good, but generally a little too tight and a tad too long.

 

It looks a little tight in the seat.

 

It also looks like it's a little tight in the knee/calves area. I think your calves are pulling the fabric back, causing the "rumpling" just below your knees. I have had this problem my self, and I think what solved it was that I made a little more room in this area. It might also have something to do with the fabric.
