Lefty, I may have seen both, but I remember the green one best, or I thought I did.  It looked about as good as a jacket could imo.

 

Sure smilence, here's one, shown w/ Luxire shirt (warzone oxford) and pants (Minnis fresco):

@emptym and @lefty and anyone's else who has had a jacket made, for that matter. Did you send in a sample jacket for replication? What are the limitations on Luxire's capacity to replicate the "guts" of the jacket? Were you relegated to getting the jackets unstructured?

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.

Agree with this, IF the fit is somewhat suitable for you. Having done the PF option ($26 or so, can't recall if shipping was free) a few years back, I wound up getting it altered, which brought the cumulative total up to around $80 :angry:

I personally have found much success in dialing in my fit by way of altering cheap RTW garments. This worked extremely well for my initial Luxire shirt and trousers.

Same here, my first Luxire pants were copied from a cheap poly-blend pair from H&M, and it only took a few iterations to get it perfect.

@emptym I remember you commenting on that coat at the time. Isaia made for P Cole. I have a matching burgundy one as well that's quite natty.

Thanks for the input guys, fortunately I already have my fit with Luxire dialled in. I should have been more specific in my question, I was looking for options in the sub $100 range (as apposed to some of the much higher end stuff), as I'd like to stick with Luxire's level of quality.

Per your request.

A bit more about hopsack, some of you might not know anything about it.  If you will forgive my cheap parlor trick this picture demonstrates they "Why" of hopsack for me:

 

This is in a well lit room and shows how much light and air can move through hopsack.

 

My grandfather had a hopsack blazer when I was a boy.  My tailor has warned me never to get hopsack pants.  I listen to everything my tailor says, but I don't DO everything he says since he works for me not the other way around.

 

In any case, you might want to have hopsack pants lined in back (these are not) or at least consider the foundation garments worn under them. 

 

They are breezy and well worth the effort on a hot Texas day.

@luxire, can I request that more casual shirting options be brought in.  Casual = untucked with jeans. 

 

I do not know if it is the website or if there are a lack of options that I like but the casual shirt fabrics seem to be missing a "je ne sais quoi".  When I browse a place like Epaulet or Gustin I want a high majority of the shirting fabrics but Luxire has a ton of options and I can never find anything.   

post #23786 of 24662
Most of my shirts are casual, and most of my shirts are from Luxire. What exactly are you looking for?
post #23787 of 24662

I would say asking for "je ne sais quoi" with shirting fabrics isn't very intuitive request. What does that mean in terms of fabric type/pattern/weight, etc.?

Here are some of the fabrics I'd be interested in seeing, or may have missed equivalents on luxire's site.  Sorry, I don't have exact specs for all of them.

The Maritime Shirt Jacket in Moss Donegal Wool: 19 oz. Italian Milled Boiled Lambswool This donegal flecked fabric is a tribute to haberdashers who outfitted gentlemen for extreme expeditions. Boiling the lambswool shrinks the fabric without the use of chemicals. The result is a tighter and more dense wool that is free of itch and serves as more of a shelter than a layer.:

The casual shirt choices don't jump out to me compared the fabrics you see at Gustin or Epaulet. Luxire has a ton of oxfords and casual shirting like the denim chambray but would like to see more Fall plaids, checks, brushed twills, to choose from.

Go shop at Gustin or Epaulet then.
