Recently received my order of a navy overdye OCBD. Think I need a slight adjustment down on the shoulder, but the fabric is nice and soft for an overdye and the color is dead on and really great.

I'm still waiting for 2 shirts ordered just over a month ago. However, mine is a first order not a repeat, and I suspect those take a bit more time, as someone's got to get round to drawing up the pattern. I'm sure it'll arrive sometime over the next couple of weeks.

Yeah, this was my sixth order, and I specifically mentioned on my order that I was going out of town and wanted it by now. It would make sense if it takes longer for a first order (as it does for pants).

how much would a long sleeved version like this (notice the cuff) run me?

Hi everyone,
I'm not an active user of this forum but this thread really helped me evaluate Luxire before my first order so I thought I'd pay it back with a couple of pics of my first Luxire pants. Fabric is navy twill and I got measurements from my favourite Incotex chinos. I'm very happy with the result, no doubt. Fit is incredibly exact and the detailing is terrific. Already ordered a khaki pair with minor adjustments also and considering a pair in Minnis mid grey flannels for the winter.

Awesome. I appreciate you sharing some of the positivity!

 

Luxire recently answered all my questions quickly. I'm with emptym, started to realize they were probably getting a bigger dent than I was.

+1. If they replicate my pants exactly, they will be getting a whole lot of business from me.

Bixby, I hope you don't mind an unsolicited suggestion before your new order goes through: those pants are too tight and taper too much IMO. It makes you look a little carrot-like, especially with the pleat.

I think they look fantastic, the length is debatable but they work great in this outfit. The crease emphasizes the taper but I don't think they are carotty. I actually really dig this look, I might get myself a grey POW odd jacket. Or a sufficiently large scale POW suit.

 

 

 

I'd also like to mention that email correspondence and customer service is superb with Luxire, Theresa replies almost instantly and has been a pleasure to deal with.

I think it depends on what style he is going for. If he's going for classic menswear, no bueno. If he's going for something else, he may have gotten it.

 

So, it'd have to be known what he was going for in order to make any kind of assessment. But first and foremost, he asked for that and he got it. Sounds like everybody wins, here.

What would be five shirts that would be great for a work wardrobe if I split my time wearing suits as well as being able to wear the shirts without a tie?  I currently have a blue graph check, pink graph check and red micro gingham and I am looking to round out my shirts with a few more now that I have the fit perfected.

Get two blue shirts, solids. I love the summer blue chambray. Maybe one of those and the perfect Monday Oxford. Then maybe a blue stripe of your choice (University Stripe?), red stripe (I love burgundy stripes) and some white shirt that you like.

 

That's what I would do if I was limited to five. And I have most of those patterns.

-Blue university stripes - I am a fan of this one

-a blue poplin -  standard type blue dress shirt

-Lustrous Fine White - standard white dress shirt

I've been really happy with the unstructured cotton twill jacket I posted a few weeks ago. So yesterday I bought some heavy linen for another one:
AppleMark
This will be a very, very casual jacket, really almost like a sweater because the fabric is so open and soft.

Been looking for a good linen or hemp for years. About four years ago, I saw some upholstery fabric from Cisco that seemed perfect. Kept looking around, since it was pretty expensive and I was naturally hesitant to use upholstery fabric for clothing. But I've never found anything I've liked nearly as much. Finally bought some to try. Mine's the second from the top in the middle stack. The color should be very versatile. I'd call it taupe, but it may be closer to what Manton's called "donkey" if I understood him (something between brown and gray with a little green). Color's a little more true in this pic:
AppleMark
They have lots of beautiful shades, weights, and weaves. And the company is really careful about environmental and social impact of their materials, a few more:

Excellent emptym!

 

Some of the best fabrics are made for upholstery. They are liberal in using different materials like linen, silk, cotton, rayon, polyester and their combinations. Experimenting comes easier to them.

 

We have a pale blue linen-silk fabric that would make a wonderful jacket. Not sure what occasion it can be fit into for men. I imagine it being made into a ladies suit. Better be for a woman who enjoys compliments.

 

One thing to be careful about is that they are not made for the skin. So fabric contents should be closely looked at.

On a side note: Will be back soon guys. Working on bringing back the delivery timeline to ~3 weeks instead of the 4-5 weeks we have slipped into.
