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 wink.gif ), 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. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ok, the pictures then:

Do you have a draft itinerary for locations?I need to start saving up for a bespoke suit from you guys!

 

I understand if you don't want to say anything to misalign expectations if things don't come to fruition.

Do not have an answer as nothing planned so far.  We are taking things as they come.

 

What we know is that we will be in Oslo, Stockholm and Zurich a couple of times more before Christmas, primarily for trials of current orders.  By then end of the year, we hope to have a good idea on how the process is working.

These are part of our Made-to-order shoes offerings we launched recently. Available in standard sizes and quick turn-around.

 

The penny loafers are here.

Currently no. We intend to offer just 2 styles of shoes initially: Penny loafer and a style of brogued oxfords. Both these are with leather soles.

Gents,

 

Appreciate this has probably been asked 1 million times, but is there a general view on the best light/pale blue work shirt from Luxire? Looking through the options and from the pictures they all look incredibly similar. Pale blue, sky blue? I can hardly tell the difference!

 

Thanks in advance.

One note on blues, especially since you asked specifically about colors like pale and sky (and their cousins, ice, navy, etc.) - how well those coordinate with your other colors can vary a lot. Ice probably won't pair well with browns (too pale), unlike a good Sky probably will (it's "warmer"). Same thing with your gray trousers which might range from light to charcoal to steel. Add to it the fact that accurately comparing colors from photos online is a crapshoot and it's a very tough call.

Unless you're not picky, I'd suggest getting some returnable OTR shirts in a variety of blue hues to see what you like and will work with your wardrobe before picking colors for MTM. It won't guarantee success, but it will at least whittle it down to a more manageable risk. And/or, get a bunch of swatches from Luxire and use those to gauge; but I find I have more success with trying them on versus swatches since.

All that said, Beatlegeuse's recommendation of something in a Sky Blue is probably the most versatile - most likely to work with tans, browns, and grays.

Razl, great post.

Very simple my end. Light, mid grey, navy and brown suits. Completely agree regarding hues, I suppose 2-3 different blue shirts would work well for me so very open to suggestions there!

Has anyone tried the "Cotton Poly" range of shirt fabrics? Is it truly non-iron?

Thanks

Order page is really cool, not sure if that's your own doing or shopify's, easy to know if you screwed up your shipping address. Jumped on the sale should be in time for Australian summer.
