Anyone else that has ordered the vbc pants a little underwhelmed with the feel of the fabric? I thought it would feel a little more luxurious. It feels closer to a wool blend.

To be honest I actually had a similar impression upon delivery. My Rust VBC have a similar hand and weight as my two pairs of Woolrich trousers.

 

However, the VBC are at least marginally better in both drape and wrinkle resistance. I'd say they are worth the $30 extra over the Woolrich.

Honestly? Not really, no.
I bought 5 pairs during the sale last year and think they're lightweight, smooth, with a silky hand and lovely drape.

I will say that I've never ordered anything heavy weight or anything in cashmere etc. given that I live in a tropical climate, so I'm not sure if I'm really the right guy to compare them to heavier/more substantial fabrics.

Those trousers looks very good. Are they lined or unlined?
post #23466 of 24673

They are unlined. This fabric is quite thick and has a some weight to it and is definitely not see-through.

Thank you. Are they still quite cool compared to cotton trousers?

Always nice to see the Natural Ecru Hopsack out in the wild.

i love my linen hopsack pants. It's a great material, drapes well but open enough to breath well.

It's my favourite Luxire own-label fabric. Currently getting a shirt jacket made up in it too (not for wear with the pants, can have too much of a good thing).
post #23471 of 24673

Agree that it's a great fabric. Yes, it breathes well and I also agree with going unlined. It is definitely on the casual end of the spectrum, though. The linen-cotton canvas fabrics are somewhat more formal IMHO as they are less slubby, rumple less, and hold a crease better.

Does anyone know if Luxire does coloring? How would you go about to get a shirt with a coloured line on the collar like the one Archer is wearing in the picture?

I love those retro piped polos. I would absolutely be in the market if Luxire can make them.

Kind of curious. Can Luxire make these but as a flatlock henley instead?

post #23475 of 24673

Maybe this could be cut and sewn together with regular navy jersey to achieve something similar.
