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):
@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.
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
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.
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.
a hardy cotton twill fabric with a soft brushed interior
Pendleton wool flannel
Alumo Lanella Jr fabric; 83% cotton, 17% wool
indigo blue cotton
4.5oz and the surface is slightly brushed
19 oz. Italian Milled Boiled Lambswool donegal flecked fabric
Go shop at Gustin or Epaulet then.
