Thanks @luxire. Technically i wonder how that happens? I assumed 130's 140's etc would be fragile fabrics. But i guess you can still have high twist etc to make them stronger. Mind you my knowledge of fabric construction is basic at best.

The super number denotes just a part of the fabric construction. We often hear the term micron as well with it, denoting the compactness of the yarn.  A combination of yarn strength, count, construction, weave and post processing can be used for making distinct fabrics using the same type of base material.

 

Often see fabrics, in 180s/200s wool, woven compact for natural sheen, layered weave, that feel soft to the touch but still be strong and durable.

Does anybody have experience with Luxire replicating (or using as a baseline) a Mercer & Sons BD collar?
post #23764 of 25373

I don't have any experience with it, but I recall I already saw other members mentioning it so maybe a search will be helpful?

I received 3 pairs of pants last week:

Vitale Barberis Canonico (VCB) - Mid Grey Hopsack 

Minnis Flannel 15Oz – Fawn

Dugdale Grey Birdseye

 

Here is a quick pic of the VCB Mid Grey Hopsack at the airport this morning around dawn (over Tricker's dark green Polo boots):

 

I love the Hopsack so far.  It feels like soft burlap and breaths about as well.

 

I had some trouble with an order in the past - this order was perfect from my point of view.  My pants had all features and I think I have dialed in my size (despite the excessive-looking break when I am bent over in that pic).

 

I am not an easy customer and I can tell that Luxire is trying to get my orders correct.  It's time for me to try a blazer - I am thinking hopsack (maybe even this grey).

Has anyone used the Dugdale Royal Classic 12-13oz fabrics for trousers? Specifically http://custom.luxire.com/collections/pants-sorted-by-price/products/dugdale-royal-classic-traditional-prince-of-wales-with-blue-overcheck. Just wondering how soft the fabric is, and would half lining be recommended?

I have a Luxire Blue Denim Slubby Chambray shirt. I love it. But the placket is very wrinkly and folds over all the time. Any idea on how to fix this or what caused it?

I have a dark brown one, @lefty has a very nice dark green one, and I believe @unbelragazzo has a navy one.  They're nice.

thx, do you happen to have any photos if you don't mind sharing? I'm fond of the mix of the casual construction, and velvet fabric. 

post #23772 of 25373

Not sure which you're referring to - blue velvet or dark green washed moleskin. I believe you would have seen both.

 

I like velvet. Very '70s.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a shirt that would be appropriate for a medical college interview? Preferably something relatively low in price, as I am working with a limited budget currently.

I'm so glad Luxire has decided to spend a day in Oslo for an upcoming trunk show. I have already booked a slot. A rare opportunity in what is otherwise a total sartorial wasteland
post #23775 of 25373

@aidanc I would personally recommend finding something off-the-rack, unless you've already got your pattern dialed in. White, preferably. I like Paul Frederick for inexpensive white shirts. Charles Tyrwhitt also pretty good--neither are Luxire quality, but I think you can still get a PF white shirt with your choice of collar and cuff for about $20.
