The order took a little while longer than expected to be made up, because a fabric was out of stock. Every other part of the order process was smooth & streamlined.

First impressions:
- excellent quality. Not just for the price, but actually really well-made regardless of price. Accurate stitching, no off seams, everything attached strongly, etc, etc.
- all measurements & details done exactly as requested, first time.
- very nice shape/roll to the collar. I'm not a roll fetishist, unlike some, but even I can see when it's done well.
- will definitely be ordering more.

I made a slight error on the collar band height I wrote down on the order (0.25" too high, so not a big issue and the slightly higher band height looks nice anyway) that I'll correct in future. Once I check for any shrinkage after first wash, I'll be ordering many more shirts. First I'm going to add all the remaining buttondown collar shirts I need, and tag onto that order one regular business shirt in order to get its collar shape right. Once that's sorted, I'll be able to order the business shirts I need to replace my existing, aging & somewhat fraying set.

Good job Luxire.

Pics or it didn't happen.

 

Ha ha, they're in the wash at the moment. But don't worry, pics will appear in the WAYWRN shortly & I'll x-post into here. Maybe even tomorrow, if I can be bothered to do some ironing tonight!

Thank you Holdfast. I must say that you were kind and forgiving given the delay and the last moment intimation about the fabric.

 

Am glad the shirts were liked.

 

Out of stock issues happen; no point in getting annoyed by that sort of thing!

 

Thanks again.

Ain't going too well, am afraid. Still trying though.

I know they are very good at constructing the trousers and I would want a suit with trousers made by them.  The jacket is a different matter....I'm waiting to see more exampls first.

 

Luxire, do you still intend to make suits or has that been put on hold?

 

Very much in progress, like the one below shipping this week. (cellphone image)

Hope you're able to source something. Would be nice to have something between the $90 wool/poly and the $300 Minnis.

BTW, that is definitely the best jacket pic I have seen from you guys. Is it a copy of an existing garment or did the owner just provide measurements?

Big +1...that jacket looks fantastic. I'd love to get something just like that at some point. In fact, I may want to copy that exact jacket, with just the measurement changes to reflect my size.

Definitely. Based on that picture, if I could just take that pattern and provide my own measurements, I'd be pretty happy.

In other words, Luxire, you guys should learn that pattern well. Well enough that you can recreate it without the mother garment there if necessary. Cause that jacket is light years ahead of the other ones I have seen from you guys.

Luxire - what's the price on that jacket? And is it completely unstructured or is there some sort of lining and padding in there?
post #4942 of 12771

I'm also potentially interested but would like to know whether the jacket is fully canvassed?

post #4943 of 12771
Count me in as a fan of that jacket! Details please!

All their jackets are fully canvassed except you specify otherwise.

I'd definitely be interested in ordering odd jackets in the future, providing the quality is sufficient and the price is right. I so far have no proper tailoring in my wardrobe, and as a first acquisition have been searching for the perfect double-breasted navy blazer.

A double breasted navy blazer isn't really a first piece to buy. I could think of 5 other coats to buy before hand, starting of course with a single breasted navy blazer.

What would the other 4 be?

I don't think it's in 6th position but that's just me.

 

1. navy blue blazer in worsted wool

 

2. royal blue blazer in fresco or wool/mohair

 

3. A FU jacket like this or a guncheck for instance

 

 

4. A DB blue blazer, for sure

 

5. Donegal grey jacket

Blazertalk aside, I really need some flanells in the sub $200-range for the upcoming fall...
