To clarify, changes are made over the original / modified original pattern. So, a pattern, over 5 orders will undergo 5 sets of subsequent changes. The original pattern is not retained.

Added some "affordable" summer Loro Piana fabrics. They are beautiful fabrics. As with most new additions, we will offer a $50 discount per item over the next few days. Please use code: WELCOMEPIANA

 

Start here.

OK this is a clear answer.

But it's still strange, if you have a long tucked in shirt, and than you request a shorter untucked shirt based on that pattern, the original pattern is cut so can never be restored.

I think you are still reading it differently. I take luxire to be saying that there is always 1 pattern per order, so if you make 5 orders, each modifying the last, there is a series of changes, call them pattern v1, v2, v3, etc. Therefore when you make changes on order 5, what gets modified is v4, not v1. 

 

I don't think that past patterns are destroyed, which is I think what you have understood? In fact, since I can reference someone else's old order number (for a collar shape, say) this can't be the case.

 

So you can certainly ask for a shirt made to an order pattern other than your most recent. But I think the point is that 1) if you send a shirt and some modifications, they don't keep the shirt pattern and your modified pattern from the start 2) Changes are made to the pattern you reference in your request. There is no 'master shirt' against which all possible modifications are made.

But then, following the same logic, v4 is a modified v3, which is a modified v2, which in turn is a modified v1. This means that it is v1 you're updating in the end...

Unless v5 is a modified copy of v4, and so on.

Yes, but the important point being that it changes iteratively, rather than all modifications since day 1 being accumulated and applied to the original pattern each time from scratch. I think we're getting into the realm of angels dancing on pinheads here!

I do not think this is correct.  Why would Luxire destroy the original pattern, but keep versions 1 through 5?  I read the response to say it only keeps the most recent pattern.  My suspicion is that Luxire keeps meticulous records regarding the measurements for prior orders, which is how we are able to reference prior orders.

As far as I can see you agree with me? My second para says "I don't think that past patterns are destroyed". 

 

This is getting a bit farcical, but I think the confusion comes from people understanding Luxire's sentence "The original pattern is not retained." to refer to orders in general, when in fact it refers to the original pattern of a shirt sent in for replication.

 

Anyway, I remember earlier in this thread someone visiting the factory and seeing all the paper patterns kept on file. Cheers.

 

Edit: yes, exactly what @SeaJen is saying below.

The original question concerned copying a sent in shirt, but with modifications. So I take it to mean that Luxire only makes and keeps patterns of shirts they actually create, and since the customer in this case never actually ordered a carbon copy of the mailed-in shirt, a pattern for such was not kept...in terms of process I would assume that means that they create a pattern from the mailed-in shirt, but immediately adjust that pattern in the ways the customer requested. That is then the first pattern they have, use, and keep. Subsequent revisions to that pattern are kept.

Now, if the customer had requested a carbon copy Luxire would have that pattern as the first pattern.

TL/DR. I suspect Luxire only has patterns for items that have entered production.

LP fabrics generally have a better hand-feel. They also have good drape.

 

Most of these fabrics are from their summer range: Tasmanian, Travellight, among others, which are comfortable for wearing in the warmer season and look rich for their weight.

 

I do find them a bit pricey but are still a good value for the comfort they provide.

Pretty sure Luxire was referring to a very specific scenario: "copy the provided garment but adjust the waist to 16" - the pattern created would match the original garment except the waist measurement would be different as requested.

If you just send a garment to be copied without any adjustments then the pattern should be an exact match to the garment.

Just got a few items from the linen sale in. Thanks to Luxire for prompt and careful attention on this order, as well as a on two previous orders.

This seersucker (not a sale item) is as really nice shade of red/pink and cream:


Also got these:






They were all in-house when I ordered, so turnaround was quick.

Very pleased.

So they mean original pattern of the send-in shirt. 

For 5 different orders (with weeks in between), are there 5 patterns or only 1?
