Thanks. Went ahead and ordered the VBC 120's in mid grey. Hope the fit is serviceable seeing as this is my first pair and I did not send in a pair to mirror. Added some lovely Albini linen shirts and a few Rubinelli shirts while I was at it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Define "like this". Low rise with skinny legs? That's just a matter of providing the appropriate measurements. Would be no problem for Luxire.

Hahha I was being lazy. Gimme a sec I'll do it now

Alright - excuse my amateur photography. Very amateur. And extremely crappy iPhone pic. I think mines dysfunctional - can never capture color correctly.

 

 

1. Brown Twill Chino (http://custom.luxire.com/products/brown_twill_chino)

 

Rich, chocolate brown. Exactly what I was looking for. The little swatch online had me scared, but for 89.99, I am extremely happy with these. Thicker fabric too. May not be your best lightweight summer chino at all, but solid for the other 3 seasons. Reattached this picture because it's more accurate than the close ups I tried.

 

 

2. White Pique Polo (copycat eidos lupo collar) (http://custom.luxire.com/products/tpr-pique-white-knit-tpr_white_pq_04)

 

Not see through (probably 4/5 on my opacity rating), which I love. Recently tried the G. Inglese polo from NMWA - loved it but pretty see through. Also a relatively substantial feel to it. Overall, I'm happy.

 

Close up of fabric..

 

 

3. Self-Stripe Chambray (http://custom.luxire.com/products/linen-cotton-white-self-stripes-chambray-pf_24_chambray)

 

I like this - it's unique. I probably wouldn't wear it on it's own, but it is a nice shirt to wear under a sportcoat to add a little extra visual interest. Has a strong linen-like feel to it. 

 

4. Lastly, the white pinpoint oxford. It's got enough reviews.

 

 

Overall, my best purchases from Luxire have been the Sky Blue Summer Chambray, these chinos, Frescos (I have 1x navy, 1x light grey, and 2x light grey on order - in no time, I will have all 3 "light greys", and will be happy to share pictures and how I feel about each of them. Especially the one that only has a swatch and no picture of a pant attached to it). I've been happy with all my purchases, but those are my top 3. 

 

Disappointments: I have ordered approximately $750 in VBC light grey pants and have now donated all of them (please don't ask me why it came to that much before I realized it... live and learn the hard way). For some reason they look extremely sloppy on me. I don't know if it's my measurements or what, but they look like crap. I see other people with them and they look great ... YMMV.

 

I'm always happy to answer PMs if you have any questions!

Could somebody please recommend me a mid-weight (+/- 250, 8g) khaki chino? Looking for something that won't wrinkle too much!

Light tan chino all the way.

post #22497 of 24612
You mean the light tan twill chino?


Only issue with those is that they can shrink. I lost 1.5" in length and maybe an inch across the waist. They were great before that.

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

To me, looks pretty good. The shoulders look OK, but you should follow your instincts if it feels tight. Will you be wearing tucked in? Main wrinkles seems to stem from the hips, which should go away when tucked. Otherwise shorten the length and increase hip size.

Luxire might have advice on rotating the sleeves to resolve some of the wrinkling there, but not sure since arms don't look natural in all pics.

My favorite examples are

Does anyone have feedback on the Luxire shoes?  

 

What types of leather is offered, and type of construction (Goodyear welted construction?)

 

Now that Allen Edmonds doesn't have MTO any longer, looking for an alternative.

 

Would Luxire shoes be comparable in quality to Allen Edmonds?
