I'm so confused by those pants. I do like the idea, but I think the second strap across the waistband is a bit much for me.

Not to undermine everything else in the wonderful post, but, the image above makes us feel proud. The fit is excellent. The styling unique and personal. Claps for @clapeyron , pat on the back to the Luxire team.

For my next order, I'm trying to understand a couple of terms that Luxire is using in relation to the discussion going on in this thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/177616/on-pants

I suffer from the problems in Fig. D, E, and G in that thread and all seem related to the so called "fork". Luxire has often suggested to me to make the following alterations to my pants
- Increase back rise at crotch
- Decrease inseam at crotch

Is any of those two related to the "fork" discussed in the thread mentioned above and if so, in what way/how? Thank you.

This is what I sent Luxire to recreate in addition with a dew changes. The buttons are for belt loops. I opted for belt loops in this style to visually break up the back of the trousers, where there are two more loops, I don't intend to actually wear a pistol belt with these though.

CRUZCOAT #4 IS IN THE HOUSE.

See details and comments after the photos.







Holland & Sherry Tweed, fully lined. This is the first I've had made from wool. Ashish, to his credit, tried to give me a less expensive option by showing me a bunch of lovely Campore plaids. And so I had them make a pair of magnificent pants from one of the Campore light tweeds. They're obviously beautiful and I'd recommend that fabric line to anyone. But ultimately I decided the Holland & Sherry I chose was something special, with a unique richness of colour and complexity of pattern, and life is short so I might as well go for it.

My influences for this coat were varied including safari jackets (CruzCoat #1 pictured), 1970s leather jackets, oddball Italian tailoring and classic American workwear.



If anyone's interested in how these coats have progressed, I've made a couple of previous posts describing the process extensively and elaborating on CruzCoat #3 in detail. Changes in this iteration, besides the lining, were primarily focused on adjusting the collar and Luxire took pains to make sure the band holds its shape like a shirt collar while the points have the gentle lie you want in soft tailoring.

Obviously I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It's beautiful, warm, utilitarian and very comfortable--despite being closely fitted I have complete ease of movement and it isn't snug or tight anywhere.

I'm the only person I know who was happy when the temperatures dipped into the 30s around here yesterday morning. biggrin.gif

That coat and fabric are badass.

Related, Luxire should start incentivising customers who design, develop and test garments like the CruzCoat. They should be added as MTO options on the site and the designer should get something in return for their work and for making it available to others. Create an ecosystem.

I have the grey/white tattersall  flannel which I've washed a dozen plus times, and I've had little problem.  It is a little less soft, but no pilling.

I use Tide Free and Gentle and cold water

No need for bashing - Proper Cloth caters to people who want their hand held a bit more, and Luxire is like... your personal wardrobe. You think it, they will make it.

This. Is. Amazing!

@clapeyron The fit on the Ghurka trousers is outstanding.  Well done!

post #22241 of 24692

@luxire Is there a delay replying e-mails? I haven't got any reply and sent you an e-mail two weeks ago...

I've been looking to get my BD collar point buttonholes cut like yours instead of having the collar points with excess cloth below the buttonhole (see the overplayed example below).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Is there an existing order reference for that model or did you specify this feature? The collar buttonholes look a bit smaller than in my standard Luxire BD so I assume the buttons also differ from the standard small MOP buttons in size. Finally, is the collar stitching closer to the edge than normally?

Had the pleasure of visiting the Appenzell facilities of Alumo on Friday and we agreed to work together in bringing you the best of shirt fabrics and our masterful workmanship.

 

Alumo needs no introduction. The fabrics are truly impressive and made with extreme respect for the environment.

 

We have bought a few items that will be stocked with us. They should be available next week onwards. Among them is their famed University Striped Oxford in blue.

 

Sounds great!  Sounds like you've already picked one of the best fabrics from that pool.  Have you considered doing this for other vendors/books?

 

It would be neat to see your top picks, perhaps every other week you feature a fabric on this thread that you think is top of the line for it's class.  You can even consider going the "crowd funding" route for these if you're not sure about making a big order.  I think Gustin does a good job at this: I still subscribe to their email just to see cool fabric selections, even though I'm not happy with the fit of their shirts.  

 

I'd love to see your pick for best classic madras, for example.

Thank you, gents. I encourage everyone to have Luxire make a coat; the process is very rewarding. Start with a lightweight less expensive material and make a spring/summer garment, get the fit right, and then move up to something luxurious that pulls out all the stops.

I didn't specify anything but referenced the 'broke and bespoke'button down collar.
