Interesting. What measurement should I modify to increase the seat? The front and back rise?

Half Hip Measurement.

You can also ask luxire to "scoop out" the seat. Or show them pics.

Anyone have pics of Ventile or Epic macs?

This only goes so far before you cross over the line into baggy.

This is the fine tuning that may be required to get the fit you need.

What exactly does a scoop entail? How do they even know how much to "scoop"?

@taxgenius Here's some of Ventile:

Also, these ecru linen pants and Ventile came in today:

 

 

 

Both are perfectly well made.  The linen pants are pretty heavy.  Would make a great suit, or shorts.  Hmm...  

 

The jacket was made w/ the double lapped felled seams Ventile specifies, plus we added an internal cape to make sure it's truly waterproof.  Add the Epic, wool flannel lined bucket hat Luxire made for me a couple years ago and I am ready for some serious storms.

 

Great job Luxire!

 

 

Two others, at least, have posted photos of their Ventile or Epic raincoats.  I bet if you did a search in the thread (button up top), there wouldn't be very many mentions of either word, so you'd find them pretty quickly.

Very nice Don L, I like your kind of taste. Do you got a lot from luxire? shirt/piques/pants?

Colleagues:

 

Well, it turns out that the “Wool Rich” grey fabric is a lot darker in real life than on the website (I’m glad I got a swatch).

 

Can anyone suggest an alternative?  My desiderata:

 

(1)  light grey;

(2)  wool or wool blend but no nap;

(3)  takes and hold a good crease;

(4)  no more than $150.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

They have a ton of different shades of the woolrich fabric, so if you like how the fabric feels I'm sure there's a colour you like.

The light grey Wool Rich is nice. Im wearing them right now. Definitely a light grey.

Actually, I find only four (Wool Rich Dark Grey Pants, Wool Rich Grey Pants, Wool Rich Khaki-Tan Pants, Wool Rich Navy Pants) of which only two are grey, viz.:

Huh.  Perhaps they sent me the wrong swatch.

 

Thanks, guys.

Hmm, yes. Their website is not always up-to-date when it comes to fabrics, but rest assured they have a bucketload of them.

I've asked for fabrics a while ago, and received a lot of photos, see: http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/20580_30#post_8190796

 

If you're looking for a specific shade I think it really helps to just send Luxire an email, as I'm pretty sure they'll have exactly what you want.
