I agree, Doc. Especially looking forward to seeing Sic-Tess. And we'd like some Thomas Mason Silverline as well, wouldn't we? smile.gif

I have a suggestion for managing private shots of samples. How about using a Flickr account for that


The cloths are seperated into the two categories:
TROUSERS = http://flickr.com/gp/103291446@N05/6Ssf35/ 
SHIRTS        =  http://flickr.com/gp/103291446@N05/Ev98m3/

I added some information about the cloths to my very best knowledge and added tags as well, so it should be possible to search especially for "Oxford"

 

If you like to add samples, which would be great, I suggest the following process to keep a homogenous structure:


You could simply send a mail with the pics (linked or original) according to the following pattern to the according address luxiresamples@yahoo.de:

Trousers:
Name of the cloth
Link to the cloth

Price
(optional: own comments to the cloth)
picture of the cloth

Shirts:

Name of the cloth
Link to the cloth

Price
(optional: own comments to the cloth)
picture of the cloth

 

This is only an idea, if somebody finds a better way to share the cloths, feel free to do so and to use my data. 

I just thought in this way a more homogenous structure could be provided.

Good idea. Now, we need an overzealous student to go through this thread and find all the swatch pics, crop them to one fabric per pic and label them. smile.gif

There were some questions and PMs on pricing of the branded fabrics.

 

It is always a challenge. We like to keep our items affordable. One reason it took so long. We have been able to find a way now.

 

Most shirts in Zegna, Scabal and Sic-Tess will be ~$300 - $350 (You read it right! )

Will add some in the $150-$200 range as well.

 

 

Zegna cords and moleskin will be $400

Any chance for Thomas Mason/Albini shirtings, luxire? They usually have a nice price/quality.

Working on them too. Recently got a small collection of those, working on adding. Examples below:

My point exactly. I'm not interested in a $300-$400 shirt even though I'm sure that's better value than other shirt makers using these fabrics.

Indeed, I would say some additional quality fabrics in the $100-150 range would be preferred, sorting through the website there's definitely a gap at that price point.

adding Thomas Mason will just about supercharge my orders, if not already since receiving my trial shirt....IME, best value for the money so far, material and construction wise

Is this an unfused collar?

Adding my vote for more TM Silverline!

 

My guess is, if added, they'll price into the middle of the gap between the unbranded stuff and the Sic-Tess level suggested upthread, which would be really excellent value.

Yes, unfused. Light and soft lining.

I don't think there will be many bites for shirts in that price range.  The draw to Luxire (for me at least) is the affordable price of total customization MTM.  When you get to that price range, you are exiting out of the range which attracted many to Luxire and into a territory where someone could go to a brick and mortar store for a total MTM shirt.

 

If someone cares about purchasing a fabric that has a "brand name" behind it then they most likely would not be a Luxire customer.  There is nothing wrong with the added choice but hope that finding more fabrics in the $70-125 price range are not something which get put as lower priority as a result.

For the details, though, you definitely want to specify those each time, lest they get missed.

 

I'd agree on that Chuck. I just recieved my last order this past Friday where I referenced a past order to take measurements from and I think they used another order that was 2 digits different. Not a big deal...The shirt fits more snug than I'd originally intended but it does fit. Despite that it looks pretty good.

Fed ex just changed my estimated delivery to: n/a.

Anyone else ever gotten this? It's stuck in Tennessee I guess?
