Per the description of the handwork service:

Quote:

The service entails quality hand work all round as detailed in the images. 

The collar is completely attached by hand. The sleeve attachment, and yoke are hand finished. The gusset is added by hand or the side seams are reinforced by hand. The buttons are attached and shanked by hand. Buttonholes are hand-made.

 

Anyone bought the peacoat yet? I'm seriously considering it, just got to think it over financially first. :p

Probably the best trench-coat option available: Light weight water-proof breathable fabric from Epic, Bemberg lining for the warmer days, removable wool lining for the cooler days.

O.O wow, nice.

Luxire, I have emailed you a few times about those new collars and cuffs of mine. Please check your inbox and get back to me.

My guess would be that Luxire does not specialize in hand finishing and the labor for it comes at a relative premium. Perhaps they only have a few people who can do it, or it's so much slower/time intensive than the machine finishing that they must charge that premium to make up the cost.

Impressive! Didn't think you had Mrs. Merkel on the payroll ;) 

 

@Gibonius I agree, it might be some kind of a early adopter price. Probably I'll ask for only hand sewn armholes (not sure whether this expresses correctly in English what I intend to say) next time, because this is a hand finishing I personally really like.

I just received my first shirt with a NOBD collar, and the collar feels a little bit stiff. Is it supposed to be fused and lined? And am I supposed to specify that I want it unfused and lightly lined? My collar doesn't have that wrinkled feel. 

 

Aside from that, I am very satisfied with my order!

The standard Luxire collar is pretty stiff, in my opinion. I have learned to not only specify design specs., but also construction specs.

Leave no detail you want to chance...

If you want a less stiff collar what do you tell them?

How do you guys like the buttonhole on the shown suit? What could be taken as a reference point (as I clearly am no expert to this)?

 

I do certainly like these ones:

I thought NOBD collars are unfused.

If jacket button holes are starting to look this good, I may have to change an upcoming order from fake button holes to real/functional ones.

Thought so, too. Now, I need to tell them that I want it unfused.
