Any chance of finding these in a more neutral shade?

The pink is a lot more saturated, but I have no problem with it personally. For me, it's the type of pink that will fade well over time. Did someone here bleach this pink in the last year or so?

@luxire any update on the new website and the new Alumo offerings?
post #22443 of 24617

Does anyone happen to know if Luxire can source Acorn shirt fabrics?

I bleached mine, and I also have another that I did not bleach, and I still wear both. I bleached the one a little too much so it's very very pale right now, and I haven't done anything to the other one, so I'm still looking for something in between the shade of my bleached shirt and my un-bleached shirt. Also - the un-bleached one has been worn and washed many times over the course of about a year, but has not had any noticeable fading. Maybe over several years of washing and wearing it will fade a little.

Is there an example of how a perfect shirt should fit?

I made some pictures of a MTM shirt I made in a local $$ tailor: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mrj3wdrbql7pox0/AAANJ_hzpE3xeuHw-YcbBXJ-a?dl=0

 

I would want some extra room at my shoulder when I cross my arms. Other thoughts?

Someone here can post pictures on their Vitale Barberis Canonico - 120s 2 Ply Summer Grey? Because there is two of this kind on the website and both use mixed pictures? Some are the same and some not? Do they have one kind of Summer grey or two? Anyway if someone got this summer grey please post pictures on them

 

Thanks

They're exactly the same. The pics on the website are actually pretty accurate and there are a ton in this thread if you search.

Guys,

 

I would kindly like to ask you for a fit advice.

 

I recently received my latest Luxire order, which includes 3 pants made of the following fabrics:

 

Vitale Barberis Canonico - Flannels Mid Grey (270g)
Vitale Barberis Canonico - Flannels Sapphire Blue (270g)
Linen Cotton Canvas:Tan

 

Measurement wise the two VBC Pants are the same, while the Linen Cotton Canvas has a slightly higher rise and is wider around the hemline

 

Which fit would you suggest, and what do you think about the fit in general?

 

Thanks in advance!

Thread Starter 

Some of our sweaters were shipped recently. We have been satisfied with the outcome so far.

 

 

 

post #22453 of 24617

Latest order:

 

 

 

1x Olive Green Moleskin trousers
1x Linen: Grey trousers
1x Sky Blue Summer Chambray shirt
1x Cool White Linen Cotton shirt

 

Fit:

 

On the last run my trousers were a bit baggy and the shirts a bit tight; I have slightly overcorrected the trousers but corrected the shirts pretty successfully (Luxire had suggested removing material from the back panel of the shirt pattern, and I added about 110% of that at the chest / front waist to compensate, which has solved both the tightness and bagginess problems simultaneously). The trousers fit pretty well but the waistbands are very snug. The shirts have a little bit of leeway around the yoke now, but I'm happy enough; I remember this was debated by people with better adjusted patterns than me but I like the fact that a bit of aggressive tumble drying will shrink things, it gives some room for tactical shrinking where necessary. Trousers I am expecting will stretch a bit around the waist over time, and then be perfect.One tiny manufacturing error, from the look of it, the linen shirt has been shirred as well as the blue summer chambray.

 

Fabrics:

 

Initial impressions only, but the linen shirt looks great, isn't too see-through (it is a little bit, another benefit to it being on the roomier side). The linen trousers are pretty light (considering I got 'grey' and not 'light grey'), comparable to my palest flannels, but lovely mottled colour and nice texture. Blue summer chambray, a well-discussed shirting, seems fine and I am looking forward to wearing it. The real stand-out is the moleskin though, which is a fantastic deep, rich green colour, and very hard to photograph. I've tried, but it comes out looking green-grey or else very dark (as it looks on the website).

 

 

 

 

Luxire's tumblr photo gets closer, but my pair are darker and more saturated than this in real life:

 

 

I know a few people were debating green trousers and if you want something dark and rich in tone and fairly heavy in cloth weight (these will work for Autumn to Spring in the UK I think, maybe less useful in warm climates) I'd recommend the moleskin as an option.

Any of you guys experiencing slow order processing? I've put in an order on the 7th of April for a shirt in lustrous fine white, based on a pattern with small adjustments from previous order.
According to the website the fabric is in stock, and from other users in this forum I've seen really short processing times. In my user account it says that the order is unfulfilled.
