1) Get your clothes from Luxire

2) Try them on

3) Note the measurement and styling changes you want

4) Order more clothes from Luxire with your new measurements

5) Rinse and Repeat

 

The "test" clothes are just a cheaper option to get your measurements dialed in.

Wool Rich Grey Pants
- Price is great, but does the 30% polyester minimize the value of this fabric?

Minnis Fresco-Light Grey Plain - Same fabric as the photo above. I really like the color of these pants, however, according to the reviews this fabric is very thin/light. Price is $250 which is on the higher end.

Vitale Barberis Canonico - 120s 2 Ply Summer Grey - Price is $149 and the fabric is 100% wool. There are currently no reviews on the website for this fabric.

Vitale Barberis Canonico - Prunnelle 110s Light Grey Twill - Price is $149 and the fabric is 100% wool.

I have the first 3. The best cloth is the Fresco, it is a bit scratchy, but is a much better drape than the other two, plus it wears cooler and wrinkles less. Second would be the VBC but followed closely by the Wool Rich.

 

If price is not your concern, get the Fresco all day. But for an extra 30-40$ get the VBC over the WR.

 

I wear them (VBC) quite a bit in the summer, and I golf in the Wool Rich because I can wash them.

 

Good luck. DL-

This is great! Thanks for the input.

I have VBC, wool rich, and Fresco (but the latter not from Luxire). Would rate all three very highly, wool rich gets my vote as a travel fabric since it hangs well and resists creasing, plus you can give it to the hotel laundry without too many worries. For general wear I rate the VBC highly; Fresco is nice but the price gap is not justifiable in my view.

When it comes to durability is a twill weave preferred over worsted? Or are they both about the same?

 

EDIT: I didn't realize worsted wool could also be woven into a twill pattern.

Anyone know if there would be problems with pockets showing because of the light fabric? I've had that problem wth cream Dugdale new fine worsted trousers.

Help anyone?

post #21686 of 24706
I would also get new pants. The pocket flare is quite bad
post #21687 of 24706

Yes the pant are horrible, but are OTR.

Currently working on getting either a bespoke or MTM pair for sendig in to Luxire.

But regarding the shirt, what do you think?

The yoke definitely needs reduction, although 1.5' might be a bit too much.  Put the shirt on and have someone measure the right appropriate length along the yoke line to figure out the best measurement. 

 

I'm not sure what you mean by reducing the bottom.  Do you mean the length or the width at the bottom.  Assuming it is the length, I think there is some room to play with and personal preference is also a factor.  I tend to like my shirt a little on the long side so that they won't untuck as easily.   If you make it too short, the shirt will pull up all the time. Yours seem a bit long but not too much, definitely not 1.5' which is a pretty big change in most cases.

 

As for the the sleeves, I think they look fine.  They need to have a little extra length so that the cuffs won't pull up whenever you bend your arms. 

post #21689 of 24706

^Yep, unless the shirt is to be made of spandex, I would only reduce the width of the yolk and the waist by about .5".  I'd actually add a half inch to the sleeve length and reduce the cuff width by .25".
