Does luxire have any technical fabrics (such as gore-tex, etc) to be made into hard-wearing outdoor gear? I know they carry ventile, but I'm looking for more "advanced" stuff such as that used by Stone Island, Arc'teryx, and Acronym. 

 

Has anyone had any tech wear/outdoor gear made that does not have a more traditional menswear look? 

I usually prefer a more traditional stile, but I've been wanting to get some all black weatherproof clothing for mountaineering and hiking. 

 

We do have some Epic fabrics as well.

 

But, the timing of your message is perfect. I was at Schoeller in Sevelen on Friday. Saw through their complete collection and also ordered some fabrics. Am expecting these to be shipped to us in about a week and we should be able to start taking orders then.

 

Among the ordered items are fabrics for making jackets, trousers, some shirts, polos, thermal wears and underwears. The fabric for underwear is a blend of Merino that wears cool, dries quick and is very comfortable.

 

If things go well, we will be offering the complete spectrum of technical clothing over a period of time.

 

 


Fabrics being processed at Schoeller.

When will the current range be available for order?

 

They do not offer cut-length service sadly. The ones we got should be listed this week.

 

We will create a listing for the pink voile as well.

Very exciting! I would be very happy to be one of the first to do a trial run of some of the new technical clothing options. Will the high quality of your traditional clothing be easily translated into more "hardcore" gear? I do not mean to insinuate that Luxire is not capable of it, but I am more curious as to what new features will be available for use in combination with the tech fabrics.

 

For example: while bar tacks, single needle stitching, and good canvassing are hallmarks of quality traditional clothing, quality performance clothing often is measured by completely different standards. Features such as taped seams, reinforced gussets, and breathability are in much higher demand for performance gear. 

 

Do you plan to accommodate for this new set of requirements, or will it be more a case of the new fabrics being adapted to more traditionally styled clothing (ex. making a waterproof but still traditionally constructed blazer)?

Having visited a Loro Piana store and seeing their cotton flannel trousers, I can't help but wonder if Luxire has any similar fabrics. Does anyone know, or do you Luxire have any plans on stocking some?

No worries on the quality front. Global best practices will be adapted and improved upon as required.

Shoeller will be guiding us with the techniques and technicalities.

 

We will first begin with improved traditional clothing, targeting summer comfort, rain protection and travel.

With the learning we will gather over the next few months, we will plan on things like overcoats, winter pants, shirt jackets, may be hats for the colder months.

 

These will be primary.

 

Apart from them, we are more than happy to make skiing/high altitude clothing, if anyone would order.

 

To summarize, we have the fabrics, we are adding the know-how and anything is possible.

We do have access to a few different types of cotton flannels for trousers. If you let us know what you have in mind, we can try and offer something similar.

Did you pick up any high loft fleeces?

With Spring around the corner, in our view, this ain't the best time to stock up on them. We have thus shortlisted some items which we intend to order in July to sell during Autumn/Winter.

I'm in love with this quilted jacket. Anyone got a direct link to it? Not seeing it on their website

Very excited about the technical fabrics - with a 36" inseam I'm not able to find waterproof trousers anywhere...

This was a custom request, it's best to ask Luxire directly via email.

Thank you! 


@luxire May I ask again?  :)

Luxire, would you be able to mimic Mammut's ultimate hoody or a Mammut jacket similar to this or this . 

 

Unfortunately, their cut doesn't work for my body otherwise I'd buy directly from them.

 

 

What kind of rain/wind protection do you offer for these jackets?

 

Also, somewhat related, can you make any hunting jackets (with tweed fabrics)?

Was going to order a CruzCoat (@CruzAzul 's design, here) but the Armoury jacket is a little closer to the length and collar that I wanted. Should come out being very similar though.

Curious how this order turned out. Can you share any pictures @Thrifter?

Now this is why I keep coming back! I'm thinking a pair of spring/summer trousers, quite cool, in a light beige, stone, color with that softness that flannels have. I do have a limit of around 150€, I'm unsure what these fabrics would run.
