Seriously, you're an inspiration and this is exactly what I'm hoping to do.  Starting with a shirt jacket (albeit made up in Brisbane Moss Canvas) and hopefully evolve it to more complicated Eidos-style Field Jackets...

I want to buy a polo shirt with the Broke and Bespoke BDC and I'm wondering if I should change the lining/fusing. Any thoughts on ordering a polo from Luxire in general? Should I measure an existing one or just stick to my shirt measurements and alter them where it's needed (length, chest etc)?

Do you replicate outwear or is that service only for shirts and trousers?

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.

IMO, clapeyron, this (quite awesome and unique) style of pants works much better in a very relaxed/loose fit, as in the example pic you provided. Yours are much too slim. I bet they are very uncomfortable to sit in.

Cannot but recommend the Navy Royal Gingham on White Oxford. The fabric is incredibly soft and the colours are vibrant. And yet again Luxire executed my pattern perfectly.

 

Here it is with the Mercer & Sons collar (with soft interlining added). Nice and beefy. I'll snap a tie pic later.

Nice collar! How long are the points? I'm thinking about using that collar for a pique pull-over shirt. Thanks

So this is me apologizing for the order creep comments last week. This is my most recent order, based on the pattern for my best-fitting pants, and Luxire nailed it. My last order before this must have been an aberration, and those have been sent back to be altered. These fit great and I'm 100% happy with the fabric and execution. One of the legs looks a bit wonky at the cuff, but these are straight out of the box and haven't been pressed yet, so that should be fixed easily with a good ironing. Shirt and shoes in this pic also from Luxire.

It's the standard Mercer & Sons, 3 7/16 inches. It deviates from that collar (i.e. of just saying "classic Mercer & Sons collar") by adding an unfused lining to it.

Can someone recommend a summer weight chambray? Mostly to be worn with sport coat, tie and no tie. Thanks

Thanks! I'm definitely saving this order number and measurements to make sure all future trousers fit just like these

I just got this made up Sky Blue Summer Chambray - wore it with a tie today, and really love it. Slight texture that looks solid from afar - which makes it really wearable in multiple seasons.

That fabric is one of my favorites.  I have two shirts in it and I may get a 3rd.  It's not cool enough for summer shirt in a tropical climate but it's fine for me in the Southern US.  It feels "richer" than it is.

Great to hear!

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.
We currently have Alumo, Carlo Riva, Grandi and Albini. We can add more but not in a hurry as most needs can be taken care of in these.

There are so many things we want to do and so many that can be done.
Sadly, we have a small team and each one of us have their plates overflowing, a situation we have been trying to improve for a long time.

Once the new site launches(will be sending beta links to a few random customers for trial this week) and stabilizes, we hope to have more time for interesting and interactive work.

We will be adding a crowd-funding ordering option on the new site as well.
