A few questions about the peacoat:


1.) What is the weight and type of wool?
2.) Do you have pictures of the black vs. navy?
3.) Is the back vented (2-piece) or 1-piece? Or is this a customizable option?
4.) It appears that the coat has 2 inside pockets... is that right?
5.) What type of lining is in the sleeves?

6.) Are the sleeve tabs a customizable option?

 

 

Thanks!

Can anyone who purchased the cheaper flannel for pants comment on the quality? I am not a fan of nylon, but don't want to jump out the window on my 1st purchase.

Long time lurker.  Recently ordered a shirt in lustrous white and thought it was a decent every day white shirt--especially at the price.

 

In my next order, I'm considering one or both of the alumo or monti 2/120 white fabrics instead of the lustrous white.  I did a search but couldn't find anything; can anyone comment on whether either of these fabrics are much nicer, especially for the money?

Can't tell about those specific one's, though Monti and Alumo in general are really decent in terms of value, but i'd really recommend you the 200/2 of luxire's ones cloths. It is quite thin, well this goes with the type of weave, but a REALLY nice cloth in general and though a bit more expensive highly worth it!

I'm looking for a dark green 100% cotton chino. Are there any current fabrics that come close to the one posted below?

Got my first shipment from Luxire; quite impressed. I ordered a shirt and a pair of chinos.

However, it doesn't really nail it. Would be interested in exactly the same farbric as shown as well.

Has anyone of you ever tried to send Luxire your own cloth for making either a shirt or trousers?

 

Cannot remind reading anything like this in this thread but it might be interesting for some as I remember that beeing common practice with ModernTailor.

 

So any experiences?

They do CMT.  I don't have any personal experience with it, but I know at least a few others have mentioned utilizing that option.  

 

From what I can tell, the price is normally the same as the lowest priced item in a specific category.  So CMT shirts would be around $60, chinos $70, and so on.  But this is just my assumption.  I may be off base.

You are correct, but you have to pay for shipping to India.

Try this: http://luxire.com/products/white-pinpoint-oxford

The description says "royal" but the URL says "pinpoint", which is closer to the truth, I think. Lightweight, not too dressy, not too casual.

I ordered a shirt back in August, have tried to contact Luxire two times in order to ask about shipping status without success... maybe coming through here?

post #5578 of 13333

My shirt fits are like 98% perfect but I still occasionally have tightness across the top of my back. If I'm sitting at a computer chair leaned over the keyboard or sitting on a bar stool leaned over the bar for example. Nothing too bad, more annoying than anything (not really restrictive).

 

Has anyone had a similar issue and fixed it or is this a standard "problem" with dress shirts? I've increased the yoke some which helps but I really don't want to have a bunch of extra fabric back there just to fix this minor issue.

Have you considered adding a box pleat?

^Box pleats are rather useless. Side pleats, however, might help.

Or um, you could just add a tiny bit of extra fabric. Why would it have to be a "bunch of extra fabric"?
