1. 1400 GBP (1850 USD) is their start price for base 100s-110s fabric / cottons. Our $1000/$1200 includes fine fabrics(Minnis Flannel, Fresco, Drago 180s, EThomas Wool-cashmeres) and in-person fittings.

 

2. Our jackets are fully hand made, inside and out. They are not just hand-made, hand-made with the purpose of shaping, durability and aesthetics.

3. There is a lot to canvas jackets: Apart from the materials used, there is also the aspect of molding the canvas to the body. That is something that very few suit-makers globally do.

 

To put in a nutshell, our jackets will be comparable in workmanship to to the $3-4K  bespoke jackets we buy.

What is the typical turn around time on the trial pants? I ordered a pair 15 days ago and just wanted a ballpark time frame.

Sounds fantastic and makes sense.  I just hope you can come to Toronto at some point!

Thanks for the explanation on the standard jackets vs bespoke option. Unless you guys are planning to visit Florida, I will probably be sticking with the standard option, which still results in a very good jacket, especially for the price.

@patliean1 With your indigo chambray shirts, given you have now had them for a little while, have you seen much shrinkage over time?

@Luxire: If I order one of the new, bespoke jackets with fittings now, can you later on use the pattern and measurements to make your regular, less expensive jackets as well? Or are the measurements for the new jacket reserved for making premium jackets?

After the fit is perfected, ordering more online makes a lot of sense. The online prices will be applicable without any bespoke surcharge.

You should visit London with this..... I am sure the orders would flood in.

This is a huge competitive differentiator.  Are you coming to Chicago?

Agree with this completely - for those contemplating this service, this is an unreal pricing difference from the rest of the bespoke market.

I have three pairs of pants that I am more then happy with. I am now thinking of ordering a pair with a few cm higher waist. Is it easy to get them well fitting just by requesting that they make them higher from my previous measurement or is it risky to do that?

Luxire studio agog with preparations for the trunk show:

That is seriously awesome. Hell, might even be worthwhile shelling out for airfare to a given trunk show to dial the fit in with bespoke measurements.

I'm fascinated by luxire doing this without a "house style." I've seen the ability to copy ideas, so I wouldn't worry about it, at all, I just think it's interesting.

Hello, Luxire Thread!

 

First, I would like to thank you all for such a tremendous feedbacks and discussions that certainly helped Luxire to perfect their products. It took literally few weeks to read this thread in  a free time, but it was worth the effort :-)

 

Since I have pretty difficult silhouette (narrow arms, barrel chest, wide hips, shorts arms etc.) and RTW shirts fit me very poorly, I finally decided to give online MTM a try. I ordered the cheapest regular (non-trial) shirt and also the trial pants (RTW pants, unlike shirts, fit me pretty well, but I was still tempted by the Luxire’s selection of fabric and customization). It took two months to complete the order, I guess mainly because of the time needed to make a pattern for pants – meanwhile, the trial fabric I requested run out of stock so it was changed to “dark military green”. Then, it took only a week to finish and ship the order. The trial pants feature rather sacrilegious combination of both Daks adjustors and belt loops, as I wanted to test the former option.

 

 

 

 

 

I am pretty impressed by the quality, especially for the pants which are nothing sort of amazing at this price point. I still have to iron and wear the pants to assess the fit, but I am already able to share the fit of the shirt. As I stated above, RTW fits me very poorly, so I think it may be interesting to compare side by side the fit of two random RTW shirts I own and the one from Luxire:

 

 

 

Here are the better pictures of Luxire shirt in the daylight. The fabric I requested seems pretty stiff (well, it’s 60s cotton) and probably requires some washing/wearing to soften. On the other hand, it irons well and is rather wrinkle-resistant.

 

 

 

All in all, I think the fit is pretty decent for the first try - of course, I will make some amendments in the next order, like slightly narrowing the cuffs and maybe changing the yoke height. To sum up, I am very happy with how the order turned out, and I will certainly be using Luxire in the future.
