Seems like a ton of blue striped shirt fabrics are OOS. We need a refresh!
Edit: Or the names in the thumbnails haven't been updated to show that they are no longer out of stock?
A few of my orders from luxire:
Chino and jersey shirt:
Oxford university stripes
With shirred shoulder & cuff
10cm long tab collar (Ok, it was too much! I'm now waiting for a 8,5cm tab collar! )
I will probably make the pants larger from the knee from now :/
@CruzAzul I'm really entertaining the idea of ordering a CruzCoat!
We never see the back of these coats. Did you ever ask for an action pleat or a half-norfolk belt? Or even a shirred back?
Would Luxire charge anything for one of the specs?
Last question, is the cruzcoat based on the "4 pockets shirt jacket" or the "safari jacket"?

Collar and fabric isn't exactly what I wanted, but none the less very happy and it will get a lot of wear, both in place of lighter jackets as well as a layering piece.
@luxire Do you guys have any experience in doing a banlon style polo, i.e. a polo where the hem is a waistband, as opposed to the more traditional tennis tails?
Can be made, with the limitation of having the right color rib. We have ribs in few colors and glad to use those.
Yes, we can source any of the H&S fabrics.
Light, Medium, Stiff for each. Also unlined is an option.
So, unfused with a light interlining or fused with a medium interlining, for example. The famous NOBD collars are lightly lined but unfused. I personally prefer my dress shirt collars with medium fusing. You can also specify to have different fusings for the band and collar, such as a lightly lined but unfused collar combined with a medium fused band to help it stand up (which is the basis of the broke and bespoke collar).
Hope that helped!
There's nothing wrong with the fabric itself, the cotton and quality both seem excellent, it's just less structured/thick than I ultimately would have preferred
(it's also something I was kind of expecting seeing how it is 100% cotton, but one can hope right)
For reference, this is what the design is based off:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
If they ever offer some type of thick felted wool fabric in grey in the future I will probably get another one of these, which might turn out more similar to the picture above^
(would also decrease the width of the collar and change the construction a bit to also make it more like the above)
Didn't mention it in my original post, but Luxire actually made two versions of this, one in dark blue and one in a lighter green.
This is pure speculation, but since I decided to only get the blue one I assume someone else could buy the green one if they wished
(afaik it's identical to mine besides color, so it should fit someone else who's around 6' and a EU46 in suits)Green version (Click to show)
