Huh. Perhaps they sent me the wrong swatch.
Probably. I bought the light gray for my girlfriend, and I'd say the colour on the website is pretty accurate.
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.
Thanks for linking to these; do you remember/know if they are all worsted cloths? (And, for that matter, similar prices?)
I've an eye out for something grey with a bit of texture and/or heathering, nearer wool rich prices than loro piana prices, so these are very interesting options.
All my chinos from Lux are lined to the knee.
This should not be necessary, but I've found that you should follow up with Luxire through an email. I have purchased a prepaid shipping label from them three times and all three times had to email them to get the label. Be aware that they may also have arranged a pickup by the shipper; if that's not what you want or if you want to reschedule it, call the shipper (DHL in my case) to cancel.
Customer service is a bit slow right now as we have a new team taking over. You will hear from them soon.
As a general observation, using a metal tape for measuring garments is a bad idea. Use a tailor's tape for better accuracy. So, if you have sent these images, prepare to send new images using a proper tape.
We are getting some queries on Merino shirts.
We will be adding the Merino/cotton blends from Alumo in September.
But, want to understand what do people think about Merino shirts. We do see some good Merino fabric options for shirt, like a recent bunch from Holland and Sherry has some nice plains and checks.
