FWIW mine are on the waistband (and I didn't specify anything about their placement).

That ticket pocket looks oddly high on this jacket... other than that, pretty decent fit. Did you send in an existing jacket?


Thought I post a couple pictures of my chinos:

From left to right:


Cream Twill Chino, Light Tan Chino, Copper Chino, Bronze Twill Chino, and Navy Twill Chino (250gr/m²). The navy twill is very dark, I suggest ordering a swatch if you are unsure.

The first two are from previous orders and haven't been ironed yet after washing.



















The fit with all five is near perfect. Even though the manufacturing quality is very high in all cases, there are some slight imperfections and differences between the five. On one hand I suggest specifying everything with your order on the other hand specify as little as possible to avoid confusion.

For instance I've requested both side metal adjusters and belt loops with the bronze twill chino and the latter was apparently overlooked. Or the rear pockets are suddenly with a loop, they look fantastic, so I don't mind.


In any case I'm highly satisfied and the value vastly outweighs any and all of my nit pickings.

The first 3 pants on the left, are those DAKS adjusters?

 

Yes.

I asked them to replicate these:

Of course you could for an upcharge specify one of Dugdale's coating fabrics (I think they have a navy melton), but that may bring the price up to similarly available coats RTW.  I think it's worth it but YMMV

 

Good point, I'll email to ask about the weight of the wool they will use for the peacoat.

I guess our mind  tricks us into seeing what we want to see... I for one see a damn fine pair of trousers.

The side adjuster in that position looks pretty damn good, I like.

There is a bit of moose knuckle there, Clapey...

They haven't posted any specs as of yet. I'm waiting to hear as well, as for some reason J crew's peacoat this season is fits boxy and long... When I tried it on last year it fit perfect.

I got my first Luxire shirt recently and despite the armhole and cuffs fitting well, the sleeves are rather baggy. How can I specify making the fit of the sleeves slimmer? I heard that the sleeve width measurement (the one at the shoulder) won't do the trick.

post #5620 of 9786

There's a bicep measurement. Make that smaller.

post #5621 of 9786
Clap,

would you mind giving me the order-# of the pants with the side adjustors?

Also, do you feel any "advantage" of the side-straps against the DAKS?

Thanks

Post pics and email them about it, they can adjust pretty much everything.

What is the name of the J. Crew peacoat model this season? I thought they only stocked the Bayswater, which is out of stock and only available at Ebay at the moment. Are you thinking about the Dock peacoat at Jcrew.com? I thought the Bayswater also was quite boxy.

Have you kept the same measurements (arm length) when ordering a shirt with double cuffs as you did with one with barrel cuffs? I guess so but I'm just not used to measure all my own.

post #5625 of 9786
So I ordered a shirt a couple weeks ago and FedEx said they delivered it yesterday...no shirt.

Any ideas on what I can do here?
