Great, thank you. I will get a swatch (if possible) when I order my first shirt.

 

 

Question for everyone. I am thinking about getting Luxire to fashion me a pair of swim shorts. They are going to be an almost exact copy of Orlebar Brown's setter (Not sure about color, but Orelar brown doesn't make a size that I would be able to wear, too small in the thighs for my waist). Wondering if anyone has any idea on the fabric I should consider?

Yes, can be done. but, do expect slight color variation

Probably in dark navy but not grey. Will check.

Thin MOP buttons can be requested. No additional cost.

I'd like a swatch of that OD Green Ripstop shipped with the last two orders I put in. Can that be done? I'd really like to see that because I've been looking for something like that.

I had them make me a pair of swim shorts.  When I spoke with them (sometime in August) they had navy polyamide, which is the material used by OB.  I ended up choosing the navy shade of Epic fabrics stocked by Luxire.  I haven't actually had a chance to use them given the weather where I live, but the shorts look great.  The only question is how the fabric reacts to chlorine, however I don't expect that to be a problem...I'll just rinse off after swimming.  Hopefully that helps.

Fantastic. Also, have you done any jersey-lined shirts at all? I love the version from Steven Alan, it's just too bad they're made for normal-armed guys.

Yes, that actually helps a lot. Do you think you could post a link to the fabric you chose? I think I am leaning towards navy, so this could be great. I'm not really in a rush to have them, as its currently -20C where I live, and I don't do tons of indoor swimming. Thanks

Just placed my first order, dark blue chinos. I elected to send a pair for them to copy measurements. Unfortunately, I couldn't send direct to India, shipping was cost prohibitive. Does anyone have experience going through New Jersey? I assume this will add significant time to the order....

I sent a pair to Jersey. Took about 5 weeks and outcome was great. I recommend it.

I already have another shirt in the making, the collar points will be 0.75" longer then.

What's the order number I can quote for that collar?

post #6325 of 14622
Order # is 4440.

I have another, slightly different BD coming to me next week, will again post pics here.

Thank you! It would be nice if the fabric was heavy and had 'high contrast' i.e. was made of darkish green and white yarn.

Do you mean India Post? How would Luxire ship something from Bangalore with Canada Post? That would be like asking you to ship something from Toronto using India Post. :)

 

Your best option for getting delivery via Canada Post is ask Luxire to ship with EMS Speedpost (a service offered by India Post). Parcels shipped via EMS are handed off to the destination country's national postal service. For Canadians, that means they are far less likely to be hit with duties and silly customs fees.

 

The big question is, how safe and reliable is India Post?

post #6330 of 14622
India Post offers EMS with tracking number in the standard format of AB123455165IN and should be trackable in the destination country also. However, Luxire would have to send someone to the post office and the paperwork would have to be filled there. We are talking about one of the slower Indain government departments here. I am sure Fedex and UPS offer them pickup with very little headache of documentation.
