post #21376 of 24668

Looks like I might be moving to a significantly warmer climate in the near future so I need a wardrobe revamp. Here are my thoughts for my needs:

 

Dress pants: fresco wool

Dress shirts: linen-cotton?

Casual pants: linen

Casual shirts: linen, chambray, seersucker. Are any of these more breathable than the others?

 

I'm already in the process of buying a rotation of loafers. Any advice from others who survive in high heat most of the year?

I work in Dubai and the middle east a fair bit. I tried to implement more breathable fabrics, but by the time you get indoors or into a vehicle the A/C is on full blast and you end up freezing. facepalm.gif

Specifically white with checked patterns... I find these extremely versatile
Thanks

What is a normal inseam difference for a military hem and how do I specify this to luxire? I'm thinking it's between 1/2 and 3/4 inch

If it's a place with mostly driving (I live in Houston), it's not too big of a deal. Hopsack jackets, heavier fresco pants (to survive indoor buildings), cotton shirts.

Casual, you're dead on. linen, linen-cotton, madras, seersucker

@luxire Are you able to get Fox Flannels? 

 

Anyone else....what other mills is it possible to order from with Luxire? I am looking for a good Fawn or Oatmeal flannel, but I can't find anything at Minnis or Fox. Any suggestions? 

The new Minnis flannels have a few fawn and oatmeal colors in 14-15oz. weight:

This looks awesome.  Not only the shoulders, but the way the collar hugs the neck, the shape of the lapels, and the cuve and position of the breast pocket welt are perfect.  The only thing I'd change is to lower the patch pockets so the top is even with the bottom button.  This would also put the bottom edge of the pockets right where I prefer them, namely 1.25-1.5" above the bottom hem.  But that may just be my personal preference.

I like that jacket. What fabric is that? Thanks.

@luxire what sort of shoulder is that jacket done up with? Looks very soft (a good thing to be sure)...

Good points. I'd probably ask to open the quarters up a bit as well.

Here's the pair of Fox flannels Luxire made for me. They are soft and warm and toasty.

Do you know if there is the possiblity to send Luxire our own fabric for shirts making ?

 

If so do you know the price of the shirt  (same as trial shirt ?)

 

Thanks,

Yes, but there's a significant charge for it.

The speculation is that Luxire doesn't really want to be in the CMT business, handling incoming cloth, dealing with replacements if mistakes are made, etc. It's not really competitive with their normal product offerings unless there's a specific cloth you really want and they can't get it.

Last order was 7 days to my door.

Vista Blue Dress Stripes and Dark Grey Wool Rich pants.
