I'd like to avoid anything shiny, and get something a little heavier if possible, but I think that shade will be most important, since green is a bit unusual and I wouldn't want it to be too eye-grabbing (not a fan of red trousers, etc, for that reason). Any thoughts, experiences, suggestions? Thanks everyone.

 

Edit: @patliean1 did you get green trousers made in the end? I just remember reading that you were talking about it.

 

Looks like green twill might be an option, though it was considered a bit dark by some. There's not much point if it's indistinguishable from grey I suppose. Other options: olive green, racing green, providing they're not too bright in real life. It would be great if anyone who has tried them could comment.

 

I have a pair of olive moleskin trousers and I like the color. Not all shiny. They are fairly casual, however. Perhaps cavalry twill in olive if you need something more dressy?

Dugdale Olive Twill makes good green trousers for winter weights.

Hello sir, I did not. Reason being is after looking at my current rotation I realize there are significant gaps in my "essentials" wardrobe. I really need to focus on revamping all of my odd trousers in classic colors.

Any plan to add linen shirt fabrics in the near future?

Any plan to add to the ones on the site for spring/summer 2016?

I can recommend the Apple  Fresco but it appears to be Out of Stock at the moment

Has anyone had existing shoes replicated, as in sending them in the same way people do with shirts and trousers?

And if you did this, is it a reasonable guess that they would be able to make them more identical compared to if you'd base it solely off pictures?

Edit: oh and a price-estimation would ofcourse be nice too

I've seen one picture of the NOBD II with medium fusing. Has anyone else ordered this collar with medium fusing, and if so, have any pictures of it worn with / without tie?

 

Thanks!

I asked to replicate a collar and they did pretty well too, overall very happy, but I need to tweak a few things for next time ( has more break than i'd like, but thats my fault, I deliberately made them longer so I could alter if need be).

Sorry about the bad photos.








Trial trousers



Polo in navy jersey ( I thought this was gonna be more tshirt esque, turns out its a bit piqueish)

 

Please more pictures of the polo and link to the fabric u used please!

Thanks everyone. I'm not buying lighter trousers until spring/summer, but it's nice to have a few things in mind already. (Has anyone ever proposed a fabric spreadsheet in which we all add notes of our orders and how they performed, like the shirt collar doc? Perhaps it wouldn't work because the cloths are swapped out too frequently.)

Can anyone tell me what the scale of this check is?  Luxire doesn't even provide their usual photo with a dime so there's nothing to go by. 

 

Many thanks.

Im looking at a casual button down collared shirt and going through the Luxire Collars spreadsheet. Just wondering what collar point length the Broke & Bespoke collar has?

These days it’s hard to find good ones off-the-rack (e.g., few have an attractive ‘roll’), hence the discussions here.

Sorry for the late reply, but when you mention roll, what do you mean? [...]

Guys, I'm about to order my first shirts from Luxire, but I need a little help with what collar to go with. Im looking for something that will easily stay under the jacket lapels. The NOBDII perhaps? Or is there a model with longer points? Also, how much shrinkage should I expect? Should I just go with my normal size? Thanks in advance!
