Thanks, yeah the gorge is a bit high. And with a lower gorge, the breast pocket location might look better, but functionally, it's too low for what I use it for, which is glasses/sunglasses storage. With it as low as it is now, that puts the bottom of the pocket too low for the glasses to fit in with the shape of the jacket. So I'll probably end up doing both; lowering the gorge a bit and raising the breast pocket, and I think overall that'll give a better overall balance. Pretty minor tweaks at this point.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the result. This is a completely unlined, unstructured shoulder jacket in brown linen/cotton canvas. I wanted a casual jacket in this style and the only stuff available OTR in my size was way too short with far too high of a buttoning point. So this one is 30.5 inches long with what I would safely call a "low" buttoning point. The lapels are 3.5 inches wide. Buttons are brown horn.

I do have a couple nitpicks; first, the breast pocket is on the low side. I didn't specify anything for its placement, so Luxire guessed at where it should go and I would say their guess is at the lowest end of the acceptable range. For future orders, I plan to have them raise it 1.25 inches. Second, the lapels don't actually roll to the buttoning point; it looks like they were made to roll to a point about 3 inches above it. I had to press them flat to get them to cooperate. It's almost like they designed the body for a 3-button jacket and then just didn't put the top button or buttonhole on. So that's a design aspect I'm going to take up with Luxire and make sure they fix going forward. Luckily, this fabric is pretty forgiving and pressing was able to get me the result I wanted, or at least, close enough.
Finally, and this is my mistake, the armholes are a little large/low. It looks like I should have used a longer "in sleeve length" to get the armholes higher, since they don't ask for an actual armhole measurement. This may have had something to do with the breast pocket location as well, but either way, this should be easy to adjust (for future orders).

I'm under the impression that the arm scye dimension is controlled by the bicep measurement. The smaller the bicep measurement is the smaller and higher the arm scye becomes. Do the sleeves feel a bit large?

 

Luxire offered to fix the lapel issue, so I'm going to be sending the jacket back to them for modifications. They also confirmed the armhole is based largely on the sleeve length measurements, so a larger inside sleeve measurement should result in a higher armhole. They also said they can just reduce the circumference of the armhole (which in turn will result in a longer inside sleeve measurement). So they may address this as well, depending on what needs to be done to sort out the lapel issue. If the lapel thing requires that they remake the jacket, then I've asked them to tweak the armholes while they are at it. Otherwise, this'll be a revision for my next order. We'll see how it goes.

 

The jacket is wearable as it is either way, but they did say the lapel rolling appeared to be a mistake in production and thus they offered to fix it.

I received my test pants today. I must have messed up in the measurements somewhere. They are so large, they look like clown pants on me. Wife and I got a good laugh out of them. I will wash and dry them to see if there is a difference, but we are talking (eyeballing) 2-4 inches too wide at the hips and 1-3 inches too wide at the thigh. I love the rise but everything else is a joke. If I retry this in the future, will be probably sending in a pair to use as a base.

@Luxire 

 

I will try one more time since I am not the only person with the same question.

 

Does luxire save a template of shirts sent in for replication? (This is my main question)

 

I have placed several orders over the years and have followed this thread extensively so I am fully aware of the nuances of ordering with luxire (referencing order #’s for example).

 

I screwed up and added changes to the first shirt to be replicated and I would like to just replicate the shirt I sent in and go from there. I just don’t know if luxire has the original measurements (without my screwed up changes) of the shirt I sent in. I understand this is my fault for requesting changes instead of a straight replication for the first iteration but I still think my original question is a relatively simple one.

Possibly try a soft twill like http://luxire.com/products/monti-white-twill-2-100. Mine seems to resist wrinkles pretty well. Although its pretty warm at the height of summer.

Thanks @StanleyVanBuren for info on your jacket development. I'm considering one also, but been a little apprehensive given various things. Did you work purely off measurements you provided to Luxire, or was it influenced by previously made shirts from them? Just wondering about the process, and if im brave enough to order given I'm still refining my shirt measurements.

The process is:

When someone sends a garment for replication, we manually make a paper pattern based on what the customer needs. So, if there are any style or measurement changes, they are reflected on the original pattern.

 

In subsequent orders, if changes are requested over the original order, they are done on the original pattern. The initial pattern is NOT saved.

 

We can, in theory, undo those changes on the pattern and get back to the original pattern. But, there can sometimes remain small differences.

This is the first post I have made about the website and it was meant as a good natured joke.  Sorry if it offended you but it truly wasn't meant to be pointed at you or anyone directly.  Just a joke about the fact the new website has been in progress for so long.  No malice harboured toward anyone or the current website.

Sorry if I confused you with someone else.  There is a poster that jabs at the website every few weeks.

This confuses me because I have not liked certain changes and directed Luxire back to the pattern from two orders ago.  I never got any questions or follow-up.  If that pattern non longer existed, I'm wondering if Luxire recreated it by reverse engineering the changes from the most recent pattern or by some other method.

Does anyone have pants made from chambray cotton? How about the durability of them?

post #22736 of 24966
Anyone can help me with this questions ?I usually buy Borrelli,Isaia shirts. What quality are the Mops buttons on Luxire shirts , and in term of work done at the shirt, are there any similarities?
post #22737 of 24966

@luxire @LuxireStudio

 

Is this shirt blue stripes with grey stripes, OR is it blue-ish grey stripes with white stripes?:

I read it differently. If you send in a garment and advise changes to be made, they will make those when creating your original pattern.

I guess if further changes are requested in successive orders, they modify from that original pattern. So they can always go back to it if needed.

Very nice, Luxire and whoever had that made.  Jackets really seem to be coming along.

You may be right.  This would assume that Luxire keeps track of the modifications to that original pattern that accumulate over numerous orders with their individual tweaks and then uses the sum total of all the modifications to alter the original pattern. 

 

I had been under the impression that Luxire draws a new pattern for every order with modifications and then works off of that pattern for future orders, but that may not be correct.
