I've found that linens tend to sag or stretch, resulting in a looser fit compared to wool in the same pattern. I like a looser style for linens anyway, so it works out.

Yes, different fabrics will fit and wear diffrerently-- wools can have an elasticity that often makes them feel more snug than other materials made to the same measurements. Linens will stretch and sag, particularly in the knees and seat. Cottons can "crumple" instead of "drape" ... then there are all the other variables, such as blends, fabric weight, type of weave, whether they'll be exclusively dry cleaned or laundered in water, etc.

 

I've come to "middle of the road" measurements that work pretty well for most things, then just take it to the tailor if it needs slight adjusting.

Standard Luxire BD collar with 3.75" collar points, 1.75" neck band height and 2.25" collar height. Unfused and unlined. This is how I have all my BD collars set up on all my shirts.

That collar though. Reminds me of Timo BD V2 which is my default collar for BDs.

Looks great. Did you ever post the finished jacket?

I think I've read somewhere luxire can make changes down to a 1/4 inch tolerance, is this correct? If so would the tolerance for the half measurements (sleeve width, shirt width) be 1/8, and finally do you specify the change to the half measure or whole measure?

I have worked in 0.25" steps when providing measurements but from my (limited) experience with shirts and pants measurements that I checked, I have concluded that it will not always be accurate up to 0.25'', more like up to 0.5''. This is not really a problem with most measurements, but has had unwanted results when I specified a custom collar (indicating with your order that measurements should be extra precise might help). I always take this into account and err on the safe side.

Any updates on the new suiting program?

+1!

Oh yeah, Ive been lurking the thread the whole week to check whether the ebespoke service has taken flight.

post #23444 of 24678

ebespoke is kind of clunky as a term, and not technically correct given that if it's "e" then it's really not truly bespoke. probably better to drop the "b" and go with "e-spoke"

I like e-spoke! I've been able to get jackets made at other places, but the only pants I've ever gotten that I really like the fit of are my Luxire pants, so if I want a suit I'm going to need to give Luxire a try. Fingers crossed they can nail the unstructured shoulder.
