I have a suit from Luxire. Fit and review will come when I get around to it. See spoiler picture for a quick picture of the cloth.
I am happy with the outcome.
I sent an existing MTM suit to replicate, with some adjustments.
I would advise against solely providing measurements based on an existing garment. There are too many variables. This isn't specific to Luxire, this is specific to any online MTM suit.
There are significant cost savings on offer from Luxire, but I believe the value proposition is diluted by the absence of a trained fitter to assist through the process.
You must open communication with Luxire before going any further.
Be patient - If you are in a rush, this may not be for you. My suit took about four months, however, I was recently told suits can be done in significantly less time.
Temper expectations - be honest with what you are buying; a low cost garment from an inexperienced suit producer. Do not expect standards that you might be used to from more expensive, more experienced tailoring houses. Inevitably there will be something that is not perfect (be it fit, construction or execution) and if you cannot accept this upfront, you may be disappointed.
Be specific - Set out all details clearly on spec sheet - I used a table format. The easier you make it for Luxire, the higher your chances of everything going to plan.
Hidden costs - Budget for either local tailoring and/or paying the return shipping to have amendments made. Luxire have started considering "all-in" packages that include a return postage label to cover the first round of alterations. Discuss this with them.
Provide a garment - Send them a suit/jacket to use as a template. Shirts are generally more forgiving than jackets, so if shirts take a few iterations to get right, you should expect the same for jackets.

Thanks for the info and advice. Have you got a chance to get a quick full body shot in the suit?
