post #3421 of 12771

Luxire just wanted me to note that in the comments: adjust hip and back area. That was it. You should ask them. I can make a photo of me wearing last and previous pants (next to each other, preferably from the back) and Luxire can point out the difference

Thanks, I'm still figuering out the measurements, but as soon as I get my pant that fits nice, not perfect, I will send them some pics.

  • This is a program that's just getting started and they're still ironing out the details.
  • I apologize for the picture/outfit quality. It was still before dawn and this wasn't the jacket I was wearing that day, but I decided to take pictures anyway because I knew I'd never get around to it otherwise.

(Just realized I left out two of the screws on that light panel. Ask me how many times I've shocked myself while troubleshooting one of the switches. shog%5B1%5D.gif)

So, are there fit problems? Of course. Almost all are derived from the same problems that the sent in jacket had, but to a much lesser degree, which is encouraging. I'm not at all sure why the sleeves are too long, the sleeves on the sent in jacket showed a bit of cuff in my photos. The imbalance problem at the collar is actually an issue with one side of my chest being bigger than the other, and the collar of the shirt being messy from running around.

I already have a list of changes I want to discuss with Luxire, but if the forvm has input to add to make a jacket more in its image, I'm open to suggestions.

Also, I know the photos aren't the best, but that's the non-iron blue chambray shirt fabric from Luxire in the first photo, since people were asking earlier.

Is your jacket padded in the shoulders or you have a very square but rounded shoulders?

Hmm.. Very odd shoulder padding... Also, do my eyes betray me or is the right lapel wider than the left?

I think pictures with just your shirt showing your natural shoulder line would be helpful to compare against the shoulder fit of the jacket. I assume this a linen jacket with very little structure and padding? It would appear you would benefit from a more structure jacket construction.

That is actually very little shoulder padding, I have very straight, broad shoulders which are also slightly uneven. I expected this to be the main issue with cut and structure, even my local tailor made and annoyed sound when they were trying to figure out my shoulders, it took a few jackets to clean it up.

The lapel size my own fault, sloppy camera work which you can see more clearly on the back shot; I'm facing the wall directly but the shot is slightly angled.

TTO, those pants look wonderful. They're very generous to use the horn buttons even where invisible, like on the cuffs. There is one potential disadvantage to them though. I prefer hanging my pants by the cuffs and buttons there make that difficult. So I've gone back to stitched-down cuffs.

A reversible harrington is a great idea with, as you say, just a few tweaks. I'd probably want the collar and cuffs to match when reversed. How's my unlined red one coming along? Any trouble sourcing the two-way zipper?

That looks great for a first jacket imo, particularly the back. Does the collar hold snugly against your neck?
The lower fronts look a little off balance, based on the angle of the checks. But maybe that could be solved by a slight tug on the front of the jacket. It could be caused by your broad shoulders and relatively narrow hips. I'm no tailor though.
The sleeves do look a bit long. But I'm told it's best to have linen sleeves a bit long, since they wrinkle and that causes them to ride up.
Based on the side view, I would taper the sleeves a bit toward the wrist. Thanks for posting the pics.

I just placed an order for a shirt with very much the same collar. What did you specify to get that one? I just sent in a bunch of pictures...

Thanks for lending your opinion emptym. I'm actually pleased with the jacket for what it is, and none of the problems shown are really Luxire's fault, and hopefully people understand this is all part of the process.

 

The collar did seem to sit well against the neck, but I didn't wear it long, so I'll have to give a second opinion after an actual wear. The jacket is in fact off balance where you pointed out, I don't know the cause either, but I'm sure if I bring it up Luxire will have ideas. The sleeve fullness is partially my fault, with the overall silhouette and heavy material of the sent in jacket the sleeves looked appropriate, I didn't think to ask to have them slimmed down along with the rest of the jacket.

Yes, the collars, cuffs, and the bottom can be faced accordingly. We should be able to get the 2-way zippers for the jackets. Would be visible on your red one, which is in progress.

The 4 on the right are the same denim fabric with different washes.

The 2 on the left are shades on the same denim fabric.

It appears a bit creased as has not been ironed or finished. This was done quickly to give an idea.

When mentioning the 3, New Fine Worsted by Dugdale should be considered too. Very similar.

My personal favorite summer wool currently is their Cape Breeze.
Do you currently stock the Cape Breeze fabrics, I couldn't spot them, could you let us know the current price?

For this one I didn't know that I could customize the collar a lot, so I asked for the English spread, I think that how it's called in the website, but I asked for the height of the collar to be 1.75".

Yes, we have not yet added those on the site. Can still be ordered. Pants would cost $249.99
