Jacket prices seem to have increased dramatically since the last time I was quoted. Will most jackets be $1200+ going forward?

I am very much hoping this reflects a premium for the in-person fitting, as in-person fitting for trousers and shirts will be $50 more over standard online pricing. @luxire , could you please clarify this?

 

In other news, I received the Minnis flannel trousers in fawn last week and the color is very nice. Not yet flannel weather here but I will try to put up pictures when I get a chance.

+1...though I think they came through once before and I missed it.

I believe the $1000 price quoted is the e-spoke service which includes sending an unfinished jacket for fitting for final adjustment. There should still be a different pricing for having a jacket directly made from provided measurements or copied from an existing jacket or previous jacket order, without fitting/final adjustment. The difference from the e-spoke service is that there would be no fitting of the unfinished jacket.

 

@luxire is my understanding correct?

I was told by the luxire people to increase my shoulder slope by 0.25" for my first shirt which I did, so idk if that matters or it had cause this issue. Also is there anyway to get reduce the fabric near the chest area as circle in the attached photo. Would reducing the back width help a little? Thanks again

without all the arrows



@ptr1988 @wigglr did either of you solve the problem with the diagonal pull lines going to the second button? I noticed it on a new oxford cloth shirt with the same measurements as a previous shirt. Never had that occur before.

We will see how the 3 cities go and how well our process works. Then plan accordingly. Austria has been a country that has given Luxire a lot of love so certainly among the places of priority for us.

This is actually not an increase but a discount. Bespoke was supposed to be higher. Instead we threw-in a wide variety of fabrics which would cost upward of $1200 in the current pricing structure.

 

We are trying to find a balance. The goal is to make jackets of the highest quality, fit and finish. These process changes have added significantly to our costs.

 

We never chase high profit margins. Once we have a good balance of cost and quantity, we will revise the prices to something that makes us irresistible value as always.

$1200 seems kinda pricy for a jacket, no? You can get a bespoke suit cut on Savile Row and sewn in India for ~£1400, including fittings and fabric.

I hope these cost increases are limited to your espoke service.  I'd hate to see your espoke venture ruin your bread and butter normal shirt, trousers and jacket making business due to significant cost increases.

If my reading comprehension is decent, I don't see how the espoke services would affect the current pricing of standard shirts and trousers online.

I'm with you. I don't understand how the it would affect the current available services. In fact it's a fantastic option for us where bespoke option is not available.

We do not see any price changes in any of the currently offered products.

 

eSpoke jackets will not see a price increase either. Will continue starting at ~ $600

 

Bespoke is a different business altogether with its own cost dynamics.

Would you mind sharing it on the forum? I had the same question.
