Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 576

post #8626 of 14525
Two questions: what are the turnaround times these days?

And, more importantly: does anyone have a recommendation for a high spread collar (5cm, two buttons) with a nice roll/curve? Would really appreciate any tips. Working my way through this thread's gallery, but that might take some time... laugh.gif

I really like Clapeyron's here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/7065#post_6839569
but it's too low for my swan neck.

1-2 weeks for shirts.

Just tell Luxire to copy the design of Claps collar & let them make it 1 or 2 cm higher.

You're confident it will work?

Sure. Luxire is known to make everything work.
You could also scan or draw a collar you like and send the image to them for replication.
They are very flexible.

Check the googledocs in my sig for reference on some collars.

Oh yeah, what happened to the swimming trunks, the Orlebar Brown based ones?

Thanks, mate! 

 

Order number was #5180

Soft fused, soft interlining collar.

 

And in terms of changing something, yes. The measurement from the front. One centimeter less in the front. This one (Luxire) looks good but sits a bit high in the front part. The other one (Barba) sits perfectly.

Thanks, your collar is my favourite in this thread! I'll definitely get that one on my next order.

a pair of linen trousers I had made up last year which I have been remiss in posting, with a high split back and an extended front tab ending in an adjuster for tightening the waist.
Very comfortable & perfect for behind the bar at work, obviously, they could do with a good pressing again.

^ TTO, what fabric did you use for these? Looks great! I have one linen pair from Luxire and will be adding more as the temperatures continue to creep up.

Definitely curious about this too. I've been holding off on buying a pair of OBs and then having them replicated into different colors... if someone else has already tried it perhaps I could copy their order instead.

Swim and beach shorts can be ordered in Epic fabric. We have them in Charcoal, Navy, Red and Tan.

 

Working on adding custom prints.

 

We have done tests on the lycra fabrics from Carvico, Italy with excellent results. Excited about some interesting swimwear and bikinis for women and James Bond style swim shorts for men.

Any updates on the progress of those Luxire shoes?

2 pairs are expected to be ready next week. One is a whole-cut and another is a slip-on. I will update on the fit :)

 

The first 2 ordered pairs are in progress too. Should take about 2 weeks more.

I have slightly unusual feet. Based on Beatlegeuse's short post on the measurements taken, I'm confused on how you guys take consideration into low arches, narrow heels, and extra width across unusual segments of the foot. Can you elaborate more on that?

A while ago, Luxire mentioned in passing that they had made a shirt with a bi-swing back.  That was actually mine, but I never got around to posting images of it.  Let's rectify that.


French placket, double breast pockets, spearpoint collar, French cuffs... and the most useful detail in the world.  A bi-swing back.
 


I can reach my arms all the way forward, and even across my body without my shirt cuffs sliding up.

Works well as a dress shirt or as a sport shirt.  I think this one is the Warzone Twill fabric.

I also got one in Blue Stripes on Ecru with a detachable collar because why not?  Great job on the pattern matching.


This fabric is great.  The minute I put it on all the wrinkles fall out.

I also got a white shirt with detachable collar and with pleats in the back instead of an action back due to the fabric's lighter weight.  The three white collars are from that one.  The ability to swap out collars makes these shirts so much more versatile.

Interesting range, thanks for sharing deadangle.

 

Whats a bi swingback?  The spearpoint looks surprisingly good undone without the tie.
