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.

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.

Can't really help you with that, I just received the photos without much (if any) additional information (no weights, etc), sorry. Best to ask Luxire directly.

I received my first pair of trousers today in linen. I am very impressed and want to order some more trousers. I am thinking of ordering a few pair of chinos but I am thinking of making them lined. Either fully lined or to the knee. I don't think I have ever seen a pair of lined chinos. What are your opinion on this?

All my chinos from Lux are lined to the knee.

Hoping you guys can give me some advice on measuring as I haven't heard back from Luxire.

I submitted 31.75" for sleeve length on a cotton shirt I have only washed cold / hung to dry, but when I measure the shirt per the website instructions it appears that my sleeves are only 30 - 30.5" Here's 8" from yoke to shoulder seam and 22-22.5" from shoulder seam to sleeve end.





And while I ordered 27" on the shirt length, it seems to measure around 25.5", or 26" with a stretch:







The shirt's too small in each of these measurements so I'm hoping someone can either point out that I'm measuring incorrectly or that this looks like a mistake / that I should use my original numbers on my next order.

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.

Yes, quite a few. We have cotton blends, wool blends and some other interesting poly blends as well.

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.
