Easier to wash at home? And what are other benefits of no lining?

I get no lining on my linen pants to make them more breathable. Linen is supposed to wear cool for the hot summer months and adding a lining kinda defeats that purpose imo.

Agreed. But question - will lining help them
Hold a crease a little better? And maybe wrinkle a tiny bit less?

Possibly, but I've never had an issue with losing a crease in any of my Luxire linens. And really I'm not worried about having a super sharp crease in linen pants anyway.

Due to my impatience, yesterday I purchased the Grandi & Rubinelli Twill White for $129. I regret not waiting another day before the restock of the more affordable white twills seeing as the price difference is $40. However, I'm confident the higher priced fabric will be worth it. Thanks

you won't regret it. It's great, I have both and I would pay the difference any day.

Is the grandi and rubinelli good for all year wear? How opaque is it?

I live in a tropical country and it's great for my climate, but I don't see why it shouldn't be good for all year wear in a seasonal climate, twill is a versatile weave/pattern(for a lack of a better word). On me, very slight skin tone can be seen, but my skin tone's on the darker side of the spectrum

I'm going to get one casual shirt in my next order and I'm thinking about making it the Dark Indigo Denim Chambray. Does anyone have advice about choice of collars? I have considered

 

  1. A soft spread collar, probably NOBD II
  2. Button down, eg. this [and therefore also shirt pocket]
  3. 1 piece, admittedly mostly due to this photo [& no placket?]

 

I'm guessing the risk of getting a more traditional dress shirt collar is that you end up with a shirt neither formal nor casual, but somewhere in the middle? Or could it still be versatile?

 

Secondly, if I get the shirt unwashed (which I'm inclined to do), will it 'mature' into mid-blue over time? I'm still wary of saturated colours in shirts ['Soft Indigo Chambray' being the non-saturated alternative, I guess].

 

Thanks gents.

I ordered this shirt with the NOBDII collar and a "medium" wash. I wear a lot of sportcoats and odd trousers so the collar type made sense for me. It's honestly my favorite Luxire shirt along with the Blue Denim Slubby Chambray.

Like the dark color of the shirt in the aspirational pic, look forward to seeing how this comes out Ques

Looking to place an order for a couple short sleeve white shirts to wear independently for the summer (as per office dress code regulation).
Would Warzone White Twill stand against frequent wash /daily wear? There are so many fabric choice I don't no which one to order- which is a good thing I guess!shog[1].gif

Hi Luxire, is there any update about this?

Seeking advice on lining options for summer weight trousers.  They look quite sheer, so definitely front lining to the knee. What about lining in the seat?  Any experience or thoughts?  THanks in advance

Hello,

 

Got my first pair of trousers from Luxire (navy soft twill chino). I used measurements from a pair that fit me really well, but I feel the position of the crotch seam is different on the Luxirepants so that the rear rise is in fact lower. This results in a lot of fabric in front at too little in the back. Should Luxire be able to handel this for the next pair? Or am I advised to send in my measyred pair?

 

The hips also feels a bit wide.
