I think the best thing to do will be to send in pre-existing clothing to be replicated. For those who have done this do you ship to Portland, or to India? I cannot find the pre-populated FedEx label that I once saw on the Luxire page.


There you go: http://custom.luxire.com/products/prepay-for-shipping-an-item-to-us

You can find it also by Googling, that works better than the search engine on the Luxire website.

I've been sending them to Portland (and before that, New Jersey). I think it takes a little longer since they bundle shipments going back in India, but not much. Never had any problems.

Nice. I think I'd rather do this. Any place to find the specific address and instructions for this?

@wilsonhuang top block looks good, but waist/stomach look too tight. Maybe +2 inches. Collar looks great.

@Darkside instructions for shipping to Portland are still on the website, but the address has been removed. I'd email before sending. custom.luxire.com/pages/replicate-existing

My plan is a more tapered fit. Perhaps decrease the rise, hip, thigh, and knee measurements ever so slightly.

Yes-- my denim/casual pants measurements are basically 0.5" reduced in nearly all measurements besides the waist and length (which I like actually slightly longer for casual pants). There's some exceptions to that, taking in consideration the type of material/expectation of shrinkage and which season it's for.

 

The gist is that I like the extra drape in the dresser fits to balance better with jackets, etc., just as Patliean1 says, and contemporary casual works better with a slightly snugger fit.

The Brown Cotton Linen looks great but it's been sold out for quite some time. I added swatches for the Dark Brown Cotton Linen and Dark Gray Cotton Linen to my summer sale order, so I should be able to get a feel for those pretty soon. I haven't tried any of the linen-cotton canvas fabrics yet, and I was thinking of making some more casual pairs out of those (something to wear in place of jeans if it's too hot), but I haven't gotten around to making that pattern yet, I only have my dress pant pattern made up right now.

I got the brown cotton linen, they are not my favorite because they are very lightweight and prone to stretch/sag and will not hold a crease.

 

Most of the their linen-cotton blends sell out very quickly, they are a great option.

 

I recently received a couple of the linen cotton canvas ones, which are my new favorite. They're weightier fabrics, but I get them unlined and they stay nice and cool in the Florida summer heat, drape excellently, and hold a crease nicely.

Honestly, I can't be bothered to do them myself for the most part. The place I take them to has always done a good job and is family-run business that I am happy to support. I know that it's not always the best option for the shirts, but at the end of the day I prefer the convenience. Plus if anything goes wrong I have a good excuse to buy something new

Seven weeks and counting for a pair of trousers and a trial shirt.:dozingoff:

On linen blends, we just received a new book from Dugdale with some very nice silk-linen cloths. Will try and post images next week.

 

They will make good 3-season jackets. 

 

Talking of jackets, our new jacket team is in place and we are seeing some great results. This is the step one of the Luxire bespoke service. Later this year, we intend to start traveling to different cities for bespoke orders.

 

Fitting will be done in person during subsequent travel (planning every 2 months) and delivery can be done in person or by courier as preferred by customer. Planning on start from Stockholm and Oslo in September.  If you are there or around, start planning. We will make the events unmissable.

 

Jackets will be fully hand -made, full canvas, great button-holes and top of the line quality, details.

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

We are also testing an e-Bespoke option in parallel.  We will use a simple 7 point measurement system. Easy-at-home measurements plus customer images taken from front, back and sides will be used.

 

Unfinished jacket, with canvas and padding in place, will be shipped to customer for at-home trial, along with a return shipping label. You try, share images and send the jacket to us. We will finish and send the final jacket back.

 

High quality, quick service, affordable.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Will share some images of both options next week and also launch a crazy offer.

On it like white on rice! Also good call on Dugdale - like Luxire, great quality product at a keen price made by people with a passion for their craft.

Sounds awesome - will you guys also be available to check out pants and shirts previously made so that we can work directly with a tailor to perfect a fit in person?

Absolutely!

 

---------------------------------------

We have really improved our pants making process over the last few months. A lot of experiments were done with pattern making. The feedback these days is really good.

 

 

If pants made some time ago were not satisfactory, do a fresh start.

 

Can suggest a trial order and ask us to make a new pattern. Also include fit images from previous pants, if previous pants are unaltered.

@JIMB Thanks for the feedback

@luxire can you comment on the fit of this dress shirt i received recently from your company?
