The art was commissioned to be available to the public, it's not like you're taking money out of his pocket. Hermes already paid him for the work, they're just making it openly available.

I have some shirts with, some without them. I like it to stick my sunglasses inside e.g.  You could ask as well, why are there so many pockets on a suit. Both questions can only be answered through a historical perspective, which is not my key KPI for defining personal taste. So the reason is: sometimes I just like them. To argue with functionality within a styleforum is quite absurd, isn't it? Though I can use it, the question 'what is it for' is quite obsolete wink.gif

There was a time a couple years ago I tried to take all my shirts pocket free, but I found myself gasping something in my hand like my smartphone, security card, business cards, or otherwise. In an environment where you don't wear a jacket 95% of the time the extra breast pocket on your shirt as well as additional functional pockets like change and credit card sleeves in your trousers make a difference.
+1 about the usefulness of pockets, particularly for sunglasses, which are too easy to break in a bag or another pocket and too irritating to keep on the head. The only problem is that they sometimes fall out when bending down to pick something up or leaning over a rail. But that's solved by getting a button and sticking the temple through the hole, as in this linen shirt from Luxire:

One just came. Here's pics of the buttonholes:

They're nice and even. Good for a casual jacket, but still room to improve. The front ones are a bit long and the stitches could be tighter. I'll take pics of it on me soon.

Another vote for chest pockets on shirts. I have to carry eye drops since my lasik, so I always have 'em in my breast pocket.

Pockets on casual shirts and BDs... No pockets on dress shirts - that's what your jacket is for. Especially on those shirts with a French Cuff or no placket.

This isn't a "rule", but I think it's fairly common practice.

Seems to be quite an improvement over some of the other buttonholes we've seen. Is it a structured or unstructured jacket? Looking forward to pictures.

The Luxire denim are not selvedge. This would make your standard jeans, similar to the premium jeans you would buy OTR, but custom made.

 

The selvedge is "selvedge". The denim is of supremely high quality. The difference can be experienced every time the jeans are worn.

 

The common image on both pages is the 13 Oz "slumby". The one on the selvedge page is the 14Oz dark.

Sorry if this has been asked before (it almost certainly has):

What's the expectation with shrinkage, stretching (and therefore sizing), and also colour-fastness (will these bleed onto you shoes until washed...)

awesome. it'd be great to know, too, how you did the measurements (i.e. how did you communicate that information to Luxire)
post #4260 of 12748
^^^ agreed. I've emailed Theresa to ask about the process but haven't heard back.
