The rust grenadine looks great with navy, brown, and even green jackets. I can see it complementing a range of gunclubs and houndstooth patterned jackets as well. Basically anything you'd wear a brown tie with.

For items that we do not make, we are planning on selling those from other manufacturers who do a good job. We have thus tied up with Zimmerli for underwears and Pantharella for socks. We are also working with Marcoliani for socks and Bellroy for small leather accessories.

 

The idea of our tie-ups will be to present the highest quality to our customers. Some of these brands are not cheap, but, we will try and infuse the value proportion to our offerings by pricing them competitively.


I am partial to Bresciani for socks, they present the best range of colors and materials (hemp, linen, wool, silk, cotton and cashmere) as well as specific sizing options.

Thank you David. Will try and offer Bresciani socks. Seem to be a favorite on SF.

I like Breaciani but I find marcoliani hold up better after multiple washes. Just my experience not a rule of thumb.

I'll be honest, I think it is odd to have really high priced accessories like socks and underwear when the rest of your stuff is sold on a value proposition.  I know you have a very differentiated product and are high quality, but a few posts up you're talking about how you're less expensive than Sam Hober for high quality ties.

My two cents.

Thank you for writing.

 

Am not sure how to react. In my experience so far, the Luxire customer is very conscious about quality. So, even if our manufactured offerings are value priced, I strongly believe that they are bought because of the "absolute quality" and not because they are "comparatively better".

 

There are not many makers of good socks and underwear in the lower price segment. Not any I know of.

 

Remember, we are not trying to sell Gucci or Burberry. Zimmerli, Pantherella etc. are not luxury. They are just high quality, the best that are made. Like Luxire, they are small factories, proud people, working hard, working with passion, trying to make quality products.

 

I do not see a mismatch between them and Luxire. I see Luxire customers posting pictures of themselves in Luxire clothing and Rolex watches. That is how I see Luxire. 

 

So, the choices are:

1. Do not sell socks and underwear

2. Sell inferior ones at value price

3. Sell quality ones at the best price possible

 

To my mind, there are no choices here.

 

As for the ties, we were selling them for $49.99. They were still "lined, six fold, hand rolled edges, without tipping".  With the new development and the Italian fabrics, the pricing dynamics have completely changed. If we do good volumes, over time,we can possibly expect good discount on fabrics.

Do compare and see: Luxire ties are no way inferior than any other brand of ties in the world and much superior than most SF approved brands I have seen.

 

We want people to associate Luxire with quality. "If it is on Luxire, it must be really good".

 

We make quality affordable.

That is my world of Luxire. Do share what you think about us.

From my first experience with the company, I have said that I would be happy if I could purchase my whole wardrobe from Luxire. While my initial thoughts were that this would ideally entail having all items made in house by Luxire, I think it is admirable that you aim to provide the best product at any cost. I would rather purchase a better quality product (be it socks, ties, or anything else) at a higher price due to being produced by a different maker, than accept a lesser product just because it MUST be made by Luxire. In my mind, I associate Luxire with excellent value and limitless personalization. Obviously due to economics of scale it would not make much sense for Luxire to attempt to make absolutely every garment and accessory under the sun. In situations like this, I would be happy to purchase products by other makers that live up to the same value proposition offered by Luxire. They do not have to be as inexpensive as some luxire products can be (compared to bespoke, or both in-house and online MTM), but I would expect that they offer a similar level of quality at a reasonable price. In other words, I would be disappointed if you sold high-fashion items where the majority of the cost is spent on marketing, etc. 

 

I would be happy to purchase products manufactured elsewhere, as long as they are competitively priced and of a similar standard of quality as the things traditionally made by Luxire. Even if you were to sell ready to wear trousers and shirts from other makers, I would be supportive as long as the quality of the custom clothing options remains a priority. Personally it would save me plenty of time if I could reliably search through Luxire's website and purchase all my clothing and related accessories from the one website, rather than having to constantly browse through dozens of other sites and pick through their pages just to find a couple items worth buying. Additionally, saving on shipping by buying all from Luxire would be a huge bonus, especially in Canada where nearly everywhere charges $10+ just to ship out a small order.

A wool shirt sounds intriguing but... itchy? Anyone own one and could comment?
post #23023 of 24641

Thanks for these, I was planning to email Luxire this week about what you had from Schoeller. I'm looking for a fabric which will match or be similar to what Outlier uses (probably focussing on their OG pants, unless someone convinces me their 60/30 cloth [ 64% cotton/29% nylon/7% elastane] is better for travel). That fabric has had a level of use/review compared to my knowledge of the ones you have listed.

From Outlier's website (their pants just don't fit me):
  • Some variety of Schoeller Dynamic
  • 80% Nylon, 10% Polyester, 10% Elastane
  • Midweight doubleweave twill: 240gsm
  • Four-way stretch

Do you have any suggestions on what you have that might match or be similar? Or the possibility of ordering something similar to the Schoeller Dynamic 80% nylon/10% poly/10% elastane with 4-way stretch?

Lxuire's Schoeller pant fabric offerings:
  1. Performance Merino: Charcoal Grey Twill: 57% Polyester, 33% Wool, 8% Polyurethane, 2% Elastane, 310gm, 10oz, 2-way stretch
  2. Performance Chinos 3XDRY Black Grey Herringbone: 64% Polyester, 34% Viscose, 2% Elastane, 250gm, 8oz, 2-way stretch
  3. Performance Chinos 3XDRY Navy Twill: 97% Cotton, 3% Elastane, 200gm, 6oz, 2-way stretch
  4. Rugged Pants: Ocean Blue Heavy: 100% Polyester, 485gm, 16oz
  5. Performance Chino: Light Fade Beige Twill: 51% Cotton, 44% Nylon, 5% Elastane, 195gm, 6oz, 2-way-stretch
  6. Performance Wool: Grey: 59% Wool, 29% Polyurethane, 12% Polyester, 2% Elastane, 260gm, 5oz, 2-way-stretch
  7. Dynamic Climate Control: Grey Wool: 46% Wool, 30% Nylon, 19% Polyurethane, 5% Elastane, 310gm, 10oz, 2-way-stretch
  8. Performance Chino: Grey Herringbone: 55% Polyester, 28% Wool, 15% Polyurethane, 2% Elastane, 280gm, 9oz, 2-way-stretch
  9. Performance Chino: Brown Herringbone: 55% Polyester, 28% Wool, 15% Polyurethane, 2% Elastane, 280gm, 9oz, 2-way-stretch
  10. Technical Wool, Performance Pants:Charcoal Grey: 42% Nylon, 39% Polyester, 14% Wool, 5% Elastane, 220gm, 7oz, 4-way stretch
  11. Performance Chinos 3XDRY Tan: 49% Nylon, 48% Cotton, 3% Elastane, 235gm, 7oz, 2-way stretch
  12. Performance Chino Black: 67% Cotton, 31% Nylon, 2% Elastane, 295gm, 10oz, 2-way stretch
  13. Performance Chinos 3XDRY Navy: 51% Cotton, 44% Nylon, 5% Elastane, 195gm, 6oz, 2-way-stretch

Thanks!

I think this is worth it only if you can offer these on really good prices. Otherwise it can end up being something that takes resources (more insourcing and stock) from your core business which can be a bad thing.

While choosing, considered both but opted for the one with wool. The feel is much more natural.
