Thought I should share some pictures and thoughts with you guys. As most of you are aware by now, Luxire is now moving towards real bespoke with fittings et al. Of course I wanted to try out this concept, since I've been a happy Luxire customer for years now.
I met with Ashish at Hotel King's Garden. They had brought a nice selection of the products they offer. I have to say, their ties and pockets squares are as nice/better than a lot of the stuff I've seen from some very hyped Italian accessory makers. Of course the silks are sourced from the same mills as the Italian premium makers use, but everything is made up in Bangalore. I was also very impressed by their leather work.
My main goal with visiting the trunk show was to have a sports coat made up. I had some ideas of what I wanted to go with beforehand, but ended up with a much more sedate fabric than I had planned. I decided to make a double breasted sports coat in a dark blue flannel from E. Thomas. I'm currently considering dark brown Corozo buttons (don't worry if you don't have these Luxire, I have a bunch at home ), but we'll see. After choosing the fabric, Ashish took my measurements. I'd say the measuring process was over in half the time your usual bespoke measuring process takes. Is this a good or bad thing? We'll see in November when they're back in Stockholm for the first fitting. Anyway, there´s still so much you can change from a basted fitting until the delivery of the final result, so I´m not worried. Considering how happy I've been with the things I've made with Luxire since before, without any fittings, I have very high expectations on this project.
Ok, the pictures then:

We still have the tie-up with the maker but I think we are spoiled by the high standards we set, which we are only able to achieve when manufacturing on our own.
As the requirements of making sweaters are different in terms of manufacturing and team, it is not our priority for now. Will revisit it later, may be in a year.Quote:Originally Posted by JubeiSpiegel

Do you have access to Loden wool or any green wool/cashmere overcoating to make up a topcoat like the one below?
Many options on different weights, compositions and textures are available. If you send us an email, we will be glad to share the details.post #23934 of 2496910/15/16 at 3:34pmpost #23935 of 2496910/16/16 at 3:49pmpost #23936 of 2496910/16/16 at 11:58pmpost #23937 of 2496910/17/16 at 12:01amQuote:
Last time I asked they were able to do a permanent crease but it's not the same method as the supercrease. They sent me a picture last time so do request it from them via email.post #23938 of 2496910/17/16 at 9:51amQuote:
I'm keen on the cottons with a bit of elastane in them (check the "pants" box on the left to filter). It gives them a little wrinkle resistance and of course makes them a little more comfortable as well.post #23939 of 2496910/17/16 at 10:22ampost #23940 of 2496910/17/16 at 12:27pmQuote:Originally Posted by CruzAzul

It also makes them warmer as they dont breathe as well as 100% cotton. This is a factor for me as I tend to run Nuclear hot...
