The suit ordering process is not included in this release. Based on the feedback we receive for the beta, we will chart the next set of plans.

 

 

Most of the suit module is complete though and we need to just do the finishing.

Best,

 

DL-

 

We have had to do some changes to the program schedule due to the initial unavailability of the designer.  

 

Later this week, will make a decision on our travel dates for Stockholm/Oslo. 22nd to 26th September are the likely dates.

 

For the eSpoke launch (thank you @StanleyVanBuren) , we will take a call 2 weeks from now.

Received my first shirt from Luxire today. I'm more then happy with it. The fabric feels great and the fit was almost to good to be true.

I've previously bought MTM shirts elsewhere but I never got it right, not even after 4-5 iterations. Luxire took my measurements and produced a shirt exactly to my specifications on first try! I might tweak a measurement or two but I really don't have to.

Pants will take at least another iteration to get right but the fit is already (second pair) pretty good. Styling of the pants is something I have to work on though. Not a fan of the dress style.

I don't have much experience with different fabric types and I'm not sure which fabric to choose. Can someone recommend me a white dress shirt fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily and is a little thicker? Something I can wear without a suit/tie but able to dress up if I choose to. This will be my first MTM shirt purchase.

 

Thank you.

Personally I would start with a white twill or pinpoint. The collar style you choose will also determine the versatility of the shirt.

My new Luxire trousers has pockets inside the pockets. How is this called? 

post #23632 of 24615
I call it a coin pocket but would prolly fit a watch as well ?
post #23633 of 24615

Is anyone else having trouble getting Luxire to produce trousers with deeper and longer pleats? 

My past two trousers have both been made with short and shallow pleats, despite specific instructions for deeper and longer pleats. I even attached photographs showing how I would like pleats to be made.

 

@luxire, any instructions to recommend?

Anyone have these made up? Happen to know if the material is in Stock?

It's entirely up to you, but I think you should consider taking the friggin' hint.

And what would that be?

I think he's implying that Luxire doesn't execute pleats well.

I'm still not sure since I've had some come out very well and some not so well. I think the trouser fabric drape is a huge factor in whether they gape open or not (moreso than pleat depth). Honestly I'm currently on the fence about whether to keep trying with pleats for this reason.

On the contrary—I wouldn't know.

I sent in a pair of bespoke pents with pleats a few months ago to be copied. can post some photos when I get them. maybe you can use that order number, if you think it looks good

I'm going to send my bespoke suit for replication to Luxire. In the same time I would like to order safari and denim jacket. If I understand this process correctly - Luxire will take all measurements and they will create pattern for new jacket. How accurate is this replication? Is it 1:1?

 

Another question - do you think is it a good idea to create safari and denim jacket based on suit jacket measurements/pattern? My imagination of this process is that Luxire will take suit jacket pattern and they will use their experience and judgement to adjust measurements/pattern for safari/denim style jacket?
