I just ordered some new wool pants based on my improved pattern (see picture below).
I think for online mtm (or bespoke) this fit is pretty good

If I were working for Luxire I would study which customers buy at their sales. I would keep having the sales events if it brings in new customers who then will go on and shop at regular price throughout the year. If the new customers does not become regular customers or if most people that buy at the sales are regular customers I would stop having the sales. Instead I would implement another sale or loyalty system to reward repeat customers.

I usually order during the sales events but the extended delivery times and some issues that always come up (like unavailable cloths) actually impact both my annual spending and also my view on Luxire’s services negatively. I have had problems with several sales orders but never with “normal” orders at regular prices.

The number of shirts under $100 is not the issue and I stated they added more expensive lines, not replaced existing​ - I was discussing the comment which stated Luxire should not be bothered with those who want keenly priced products from them.

I don't think anyone ever implied that people who buy Luxire for their sub-$100 shirts should go elsewhere. I think quite the opposite was suggested. People who are looking for mega deals should look elsewhere and everyone shopping at Luxire should know that the quality is high, the price is low throughout the year and not running constant sales will actually ensure that this is the case in the future.

Big Bird is obviously right and I assume that they have done exactly that. Most of the big haulers at sales were actually former regular Luxire customers and now only shop twice a year.

FYI, I completed an order 12 days ago and heard today that it should ship within a day or two.

I ordered one shirt + pants, both with many alterations to my pattern (read: lots of extra work required for Luxire).

Fulfilling a normal order without pattern alterations in a couple of weeks would be really good. Fulfilling an advanced order like this is amazing! My local alterations tailor often takes longer for minor jobs. If Luxire can consistently deliver this quickly I'd gladly sacrifice sales.

Just a heads-up to the group as it effects lead times pretty significantly.   I ordered 3 shirts and 1 pair of trousers in 3 separate orders over a 2 week period starting on 2/5/17.  All fabrics were shown on the website as in-stock or available.   I've yet to receive any of the items and when I inquired via email I received a response that said one of the shirt fabrics and the trouser fabrics were "on order" from their supplier and delivery time was unknown.  This situation appears to be holding up the entire batch of orders.   I understand Luxire's desire to save on shipping costs but it sure would be nice to get those items with fabrics that are available completed.    Also, if a fabric has a longer lead time or unavailable it would be nice to know that prior to ordering.  My initial experience was so flawless and timely that my expectation was high that I'd have something in a few weeks.   The stuff is great quality and a good value but the unclear timeframes make it frustrating.

Interesting.  I placed an order on 2/22 (two OCBDs) and it has not shipped yet.

It seems there is some misunderstanding.  A fabric being available to be ordered on the website does not signify that Luxire has it in stock.  There are a ton of fabrics that Luxire orders from the mill after they accept the order on their website.

Didn't mean to touch off a huge debate here about the merits of item sales v. bulk order sales. I just need to place a huge order of linen and tropical wool stuff before June so figured I'd ask.

I'm one of the "price sensitive" Luxire buyers but I'm fine with the bulk approach. It would be nice to have some predictability wrt when the bulk sales (e.g., a spring/summer sale) are going to occur or to keep the bulk order discount at a constant level. I'm looking to sink in about $1000 in the next couple months but am currently hesitating for that reason.
