Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 925

post #13861 of 16653

One of my favorite things from them is an unlined harrington in red Epic fabric with two-way front zip and pit zips.  I'd been wanting something like that for bicycle commuting for years.  It also has a large, open internal pocket on one side to hold a book and a small internal zippered pocket on the other side for wallet, coins, etc., both of which make it great for subway/bus commutes or general travel.  

 

They're now making me a Belstaff type jacket for motorcycle commutes using Ventile's heaviest fabric, one often used for tents.  They've made me a reversible bucket hat of plaid wool flannel and charcoal Epic, a few totally deconstructed, machine-washable sport coats, hemp jeans...  the list goes on.  And as always w/ Luxire, every last detail is customizable.  If you can imagine it, they will make it.

 

It's true that when anything is possible, mistakes sometimes occur (in the customer's designing or occasionally the execution), but the rewards are great.  Almost everything Luxire has made for me is counted among my favorite stuff.  And this is true for lots of guys on the CM side.  Their expansion into SWD will have a learning curve, but I'm sure lots of guys will be very happy with their products over here.

I see Luxire has a new PR, as nahneun suggested. :happy:

What if we don't want bucket hats or Harringtons, but just want to discuss the best leathers we've seen or owned? Can there be a thread for that?

You can always look at their CM thread to see that people like their stuff.  Classic menswear "design" sensibilities are more codified and thus more easily understood, however, so the learning curve in SW&D will be steeper.  But people can learn to do a lot of stuff merely through experience and being thoughtful about those experiences.

This was a total non sequituur.

The guy sounds like a shill
Does the fact that my question has been avoided mean the answer is yes?

1) I don't know what @emptym's relationship with Luxire is, other than that they are personal friends.

2) He is one of my best moderators, and not to be disrespected, period.  We cool?

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

very true. like many other skills, mastering the classic is a ideal start before leaping into more creative form.

I think it is good that they have a solid knowledge in classic menswear, while that DR was not a prime example, but from the other link, that brown "moto" looks alright.

Twice out of 30+ garments over the past three years, once for the hat and once for a suit (for which I provided the fabric and sent pants and a sport coat for them to learn from).  Both times it was the first they'd ever made of those items, and we figured there'd be some consequent trial and error.  But this is common to Luxire.  If you check out the thread, you'll see they often make the first few of anything they make available at a great discount, or even free in a few cases for very good or very bad customers.

 

I also have to confess that I got a few free meals when I visited their shop in Bangalore.  But again I'm sure you'll find the same is true for you if you've bought several of their products (I'm about to send over a grand for some of their goods) and buy a ticket to India.
