Looking at flannel shirting, not sure which are of a heavier weight. What's the difference between the flannel and the cotton twill material?
post #5342 of 13402
They are totally different types of fabric... Flannel is fuzzy, twill is, well, twill.

The jacket looks great for casual emptym, would also echo the comments on it's 'wrinkly-ness' but being casual still looks darn great. I think your pants would look cleaner with a higher rise, but that's just personal preference.

 

Please NOBD :D

I have a question regarding alterations. I need to make a few changes to the shirts I've received. Aside from the shipping costs, how much do alternations typically cost?

I missed that post, TehBunny.

Yes, I do like linen. (Click to show)

I have a linen and a cotton/linen Luxire shirt. I like both. The linen one is more textured.

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

 

Shirts in the USD 300-350 range will be rather hard to sell if you ask me. I might be mistaken but at that price, I can ask CEGO in NYC and do my shirt on site with them at a lower price.

I understand the fabrics cost you a fortune but being on the internet also removes a bit of the charm of MTM. Sometimes, it's nice to come to a MTM shop and discuss, sit and have a drink. It might sound curious to some but it's actually an important part for me.


I would try to focus on some Albini and Alumo shirts in the 150-200-250 range.

Thanks NOBD had the linen/cotton gingham through last summer, will probably look at some of the pure linens as Aus's summers can get pretty horrible. Wishing the navy of your linen shirt was on the luxire catalogue frown.gif

The pants are exquisite. On the other hand, I'm not so impressed by the jacket. The shoulders' width seems off (too wide) which makes the whole thing lack balance and shape.

The difference between a flannel and a brushed cotton twill is sometimes next to nil, but usually in thickness in the material, I've found. My specific question was is there a difference between in material thickness between the Luxire flannels and their cotton twills.

Thanks for the facetiousness though. Incisive. Cutting.

I think I'm going to give this a go for my next shirt.

 

Hi

 

Yes, I have. See this post.

 

I'm not entirely convinced with the results. I suspect this works well when really bespoke to the slope of your shoulders but cannot be copied by online MTM.

that right.And they're working on making pants too. I'll post more when I receive a test pair they've sent me.

Talking of which, do Luxire do bespoke pyjamas? I could use another pair of flannel ones and many of their flannels currently in stock would work well. I generally either buy M&S (flannel) or Derek Rose (regular cotton); I reckon Luxire would be able to do them for about the cost of the M&S but with the potential spec of the Derek Rose.

Thanks! Although only 3 fabrics are listed, I bet they could make a pair out of whatever fabric they had in stock. I'll think more about this... I already have more stuff I want to get first and have to pace myself a bit. :)
