Does anyone have a generic body measurements form or chart that I can bring to my tailor to fill out?

There is a collection of fabrics called Ceremonia from Delfino. Made for formal wear. Very nice fabrics in 100% wool and in 75% wool 25% silk blends.

 

Compact weave, subtle sheen on some, just right for the occasions.

 

Ideal for tuxedos, dinner jackets and tailcoats.

We do make plenty dinner jackets and tuxedos. Not made a real tailcoat yet. We did something similar in linen but unable to find the image.

Very interesting! Do you have any photos that you are able to share?

luxire, would you feel confident mimicking a jacket like this? do you have access to Loro Piana storm system fabrics? If not, can you still insulate and make the jacket water and wind resistant? the outside of the coat i definitely want to be cashmere, maybe the inside, depending on the price. does cashmere tend to keep heat in more than a worsted or tweed wool? if i did cashmere on the inside, do you think it would be overkill to have an insulting layer? I live in NYC. They don't have to be reversible.

I'm flexible on changing some things on both jackets. For example, I wouldn't want the drawstring on the hips in the last picture.I just wanted to know if this was a style you can accomplish.

Has anyone had any experience in having luxire make a lab coat? I was thinking it would be nice to have a properly fitted one where I can choose the pockets, wrist closure, etc. Any ideas? 

post #21217 of 24612

Just curious more than anything, but how long does it usually take for polos, trousers? Or does it all depend on how busy they are?

You mean a lab coat for science lab or in medicine? If so, that would be really cool! I'd be happy to go in on an order with you if it would result in a better deal, since I doubt they've done this before! Too bad the lab coat can't be a nice tweed! :)

This is f*cking awesome and truly inspired.

For me one post like this, showing some imagination and a sense of adventure, makes up for 10 "can you make a cheap copy of this designer thing" posts.

It's also nice to be able to source a design you like in a fabric that wasn't available from the original maker.

Oh yeah, cause it is cheap.


god bless Luxire, they are the best source for inexpensive copies of the design and work of other tailors,shirtmakers, and designers.

and Aetna is based in Baltimore,MD USA

 

 

I think that, regardless of the reasoning behind your statement, it's considered bad taste to advertise for a "competitor" in an official affiliate thread.

Then I guess @sugarbutch and I were trendsetters, back in the day? I did not pursue the idea further since I use lab coats while handling resins, adhesives and the likes and go through at least one per month, which would probably break my wallet.

 

Luxire offered to make them though!

How long until Luxire replies, "Would be happy to make this. Please PM to discuss details"? And then special pricing for the first five customers to order lab coats...

LOL!

Glad to make them though.
