BTW, did you get contrast buttonholes in white, or is just the lighting?

Looks like they're a lighter shade of grey, rather than white. I didn't specify the buttonhole thread colour from memory. I don't mind it, though. I'll let you know for sure in a few hours... it's "out for delivery" as we speak.

Potentially stupid question: I want to try back darts on a shirt, do I specify a measurement or "add back darts" and that's it? Thanks.

It's not a stupid question, since darts can be of variable length, width, and position. I imagine they have a "standard" darts option. I'd probably only customize the darting if I had an existing shirt whose darts gave just the shape I want (I don't).

How did the process work? Did you send in a suit to get copied?

Yeah I love darts for getting a more on point shilloutte, although to Luxires credit haven't had to add any to most of the shirts so far.  I guess measuring the dart and sending them a pic would be the best way to replicate it though.

Luxire,

You guys need to update your website asap. Terrible layout. shog[1].gif

Well, they put priority (and thus money) in getting better constructionwise. And to be honest, I do appreciate that. The website has everything you need to make an order. It is not terribly userfriendly, but it is sufficient.
Better invest in future business (jackets, suits) than fancy websites. Once they are where they want to be, they can update the website. smile.gif

This is what I did...I used measurements from an existing shirt and told them exactly where to place the darts and it turned out just how I wanted it.

Regarding buttonholes, I use a girl in Paris who takes approx. 200 USD for all buttonholes (front, sleeve and lapel). All are absolutely perfect and equivalent to the highest French quality (Cifonelli, Smalto and so on).

It does make the jacket much more expensive but it also improves it by a great deal. 

 

I'm starting to do the following a lot:

- Order fabric on eBay at a fraction of the price (there are some good sellers)

- Commission a copy of an existing bespoke jacket with a HK-based tailor (and soon with Luxire to test) but without any buttons holes

- do the finishing in Paris

 

Basically, I'm usually off with 600 USD for a stellar fully canvassed and hand-finished jacket

 

It is a bit annoying to do this whole process but it's worth it according to me as I get a jacket very similar to what I would pay 1200 USD+ in Paris
