bb, thanks for the informative post!
Those fabrics indeed look very pricey, most likely too pricey for myself at this point of time.
As seems, I will have to do with a lightweight windbreaker/traditional fabric quilted jacket.
Still, maybe Ashish is able to do some magic and announce some more afforable prices.
Regarding the Epaulet jacket, a $1200 piece and not on a single seam or closure the patterns are matched? What a shame, ruins the whole look, imo.

The older style Boggi is nice looking, but I think the newer one with patch pockets would be a better choice for myself. I got the pic from Tumblr.

Definitely not to my taste at all. The patch pockets and the piping just make it far too busy.

I would go with the Drake's one has patch pockets if I wanted something with patch pockets.

I prefer the construction of the Mandelli and would do only minor tweaking to it.
Instead of the patched breast pocket, I'd go for vented, I'd make it surgeon cuffs with 3 to 4 buttons, remove the patches on the elbows and would line the inside of cuffs and collar with a shade of dark brown or navy corduroy darker in color than the rest of the outer just like on the RL Kempton.

EDIT: Just found a link to the Wool Coat with vented breast pocket:

I think the in the collar blue is not a good match and I'd favor matt navy or dark brown buttons.

Patch pockets are still going to add lines to the jacket that really just ruin the sleek lines of the other Boggi. The Mandelli is almost too sleek, and I would just prefer waterproof material over wool.

Wow! The interest in the quilted jacket is encouraging.

 

Answer to some of the questions:

 

Prime: Overall quality of shell material, lining, filling, details, workmanship will be top notch. Without that, we would not offer to make a product.

 

1. Shell material: Sheeting, cotton, technical, wool, canvas, denim - Yes ; Gore-tex - Need to find out

 

2. Filling: Cotton, wool, goose-down - Yes; Aerogel - Need to find out

 

3. Buttons, snaps, brass etc- All yes

 

Pricing:

 

Any samples sent would be very helpful and rewarded :)

 

None of the jackets are available fro pre-Christmas delivery.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Quilted shirt-jackets will be delivered before Christmas though.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Pre-Christmas, the focus is on shirts, pocket-squares, pyjama sets, dressing gowns, and yes, custom-made boxer shorts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

If you would like to gift the ladies nice custom made shirts / tops, blouses, shorts do let us know and have the measurements handy. Nothing would delight them better.

First Luxire Shirt -  Fit critique appreciated

 

I finally got to try my first Luxire shirt.  It matches my specifications nearly perfectly.  The circumference of the cuffs are about 1/4 inch smaller than requested which makes them a little difficult to do up. Fabric feels wonderful and the finish is very good.  I can only repeat what others have said that the customer service is first rate.  

 

I will order more, but would appreciate your comments on the fit before deciding if there are any adjustments to the sizing I should make. Apologies for the poor quality iPhone pictures.  Thank you.

I have another version of a Boggi quilted jacket and it's my favorite quilted jacket atm because of the patch pockets and the thin material, making it a perfect light weight quilted jacket as opposed to the more thick Barbours.

Fit seems nice, but a little long sleeves. Also, I recommend you to try unfused shirt collars, much more comfortable and better looking imo. I also like their new English spread collar.

Could you please post pics of you Boggi
post #596 of 12468

I too would be interested in the quilted jacket. I really liked the first picture of the Boggi (the one luxire provided a link to), but I didn't like the one Mr. K. posted that much.

 

I find the arms to be too baggy waramanga.

1.  The collars on both shirts are stained with a blue dot -- see attached photo.  

2.  The white collar on the shirt shirt is a different color white than the rest of the shirt.  This makes the shirt unwearable.  

3.  The monogram looks awful -- see attached photo.

4.  I ordered on Cyber Monday and asked for the collar stay package... they sent a pink gingham pocket square.  

 

 

 

I'm on my 6th shirt - and I've had them make me ones in exactly those fabrics and I've not had any issues what so ever. As for the pocket square vs the collar stays, I think it was actually a random gift - though don't quote me on that.

 

I'd definitely email Luxire and see what they have to say. I'd be surprised if they don't sort things out quite quickly.

 

Donovan.

For the one that I requested I could certainly send you my current trench. There are also a slew of similar items to gore-tex (and I don't have a major preference) such as dupont's Ulmex and Polartec's Neoshell. The advantage with these is that they don't need filling and are breathable enough for most weather. The two ply can even be lined with Bemberg for comfort. From what I can tell on my trench the construction isn't overly detailed, just a single layer of fabric.

Ventile is preferable for trench coat construction.

If I recall it is heavy and only so-so in waterproofing along with expensive. While a good choice perhaps not the best for a cheaper trench?

 

Look here, for example, at a lot of cheaper waterproof fabrics available with relatively similar performance.
