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.

...

Interesting re. sunglasses.  What are you measuring the pocket in relation to when you say it's too low? And where should it be in relation to that?  I'm genuinely interested.  I haven't given much thought to how putting stuff in an external breast pocket would affec tthe jacket shape, since I pretty much only use them for pocket squares.  Sunglasses tend to fall out (which is why I have buttonholes put on my shirt pockets -- so I can stick a temple through for security).

 

Though I haven't given much thought about external pocket placement re. holding stuff, I have for inside breast pockets.  And they should be a little lower even than an external one, allowing stuff placed inside to hang right below one's pectoral muscle.  There, the stuff is pretty much invisible and not able to be felt, particularly when a jacket has some drape.  I would think the same would be true for an external pocket, ie: placing the pocket below the pectoral muscle helps keep the shape of the jacket.

 

For fun, here's a pic of iammatt/itsstillmatt's jacket w/ external pocket placement that I like:

I finally got the pictures uploaded from the meetup. Again, thanks to Binge/Aaron for taking the initiative to make it happen.

And finally, the obligatory shoe and socks shot. Anything else would not be Styleforum-worthy!

 

Spoilered are other pics of Matt, Labelking, and others, incl. me, at the very first Styleforum meet-up, iirc.

Hey, just found out about this brand on Reddit. New to clothing in general and is still very much a newbie in terms of fabrics and such.

 

I have a question: How much better value would I be getting from Luxire than compared to, let's say, Gustin and Jomers? What are some cool fabrics that they have compared to those two?

Just took the delivery of a few shirts yesterday, including the new Cotton Linen: Light Blue Chambray fabric. For anyone else who was looking for a linen-cotton version of the Brembana Sky Blue Oxford, look no further. This fabric is the perfect shade of light blue, not oversaturated at all like the other cotton-linen blend pale blue or sky blue options that Luxire has. It's a little thicker than the other cool linen cotton fabrics I have ordered in the past, but it's lighter and more breathable than the standard sky blue oxford. I just unboxed it last night but I'll snap some pics once I wear it. If there was ever a OneShirt for me, I think this might be it.

The two really aren't comparable. Luxire makes custom clothing one garment at a time to the buyer's specifications; Jomers (I don't know of this Gustin) sells machine-produced off-the-rack clothes.

@psychodealer I don't know Jomers, but Gustin's model the last time I looked was essentially crowd sourcing. They post a fabric and you choose a stock cut and size in it, etc. You don't specify details. You are essentially just letting them establish their production run for the item in a specific material that they choose. It's a nice model for everyone I think if you like the products and fabrics they offer and their sizing and cuts work for you.

With Luxire it's really custom: You pick the fabric. You tell them what you want to have made, pretty much exactly how you want it. But that means you have to know what you want and be able to tell them. Either you send an item in you want replicated with any changes specified or you can send measurements.

StanleyVanBuren's jacket project discussed just above is a very good example of what Luxire does.

As are all the great CruzAzul coats etc. you can see browsing this thread.

Oh chill. I just really want some of the fabrics that is done by Gustin, like their linen chambrays. This might be even better for me. Gustin's fabrics always seem very soft to me since they were from japanese mills apparently. Do the fabrics from Luxire match those of Gustin's? Does Luxire have any Japanese fabric? Could they do the pivot sleeves that Outlier's Merino-Co shirts have?

Huh. I saw their blues, not a big fan of a lot of them. Seem very boring. Would love to see some pictures of it though. How wrinkly is it?

 

I just got a cotton-linen shirt from J Crew. Too stuffy even at 50% linen! Not Irish linen so I wonder why?

 

This website really has so many fabric. Do they have a nice black/dark grey color shirt or a good creme color chambray? Ugh... So many choices.

the dark red looks interesting but my concern is that the white thread will take away from it bit as its eoe.

some good colours there, no white though?

Are you still happy with these pants? I was thinking of getting a pair.

Indeed. They are in the regular rotation.

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

Thanks


@luxire Any updates? The two examples on your site are confusing in color. Thanks!
