    Will try to post some later. Ran home during lunch to get the package and try on / hang up so didn't have time for proper photograph taking.

    If anybody wants some honest-to-god art in their pocket and was waiting for the right opportunity to get some custom printed squares, Hermes just commissioned some Moebius pieces that would look killer. The images are available online in hi-res

    Those are gorgeous but I refuse to blatantly get someone else's artwork and send it to Luxire. Shirts are one thing. Full on PS art is another. I would think that could even be a lawsuit.

    The art was commissioned to be available to the public, it's not like you're taking money out of his pocket. Hermes already paid him for the work, they're just making it openly available.

    +1 about the usefulness of pockets, particularly for sunglasses, which are too easy to break in a bag or another pocket and too irritating to keep on the head. The only problem is that they sometimes fall out when bending down to pick something up or leaning over a rail. But that's solved by getting a button and sticking the temple through the hole, as in this linen shirt from Luxire:

    One just came. Here's pics of the buttonholes:

    They're nice and even. Good for a casual jacket, but still room to improve. The front ones are a bit long and the stitches could be tighter. I'll take pics of it on me soon.

    Another vote for chest pockets on shirts. I have to carry eye drops since my lasik, so I always have 'em in my breast pocket.

    Pockets on casual shirts and BDs... No pockets on dress shirts - that's what your jacket is for. Especially on those shirts with a French Cuff or no placket.

    This isn't a "rule", but I think it's fairly common practice.

    Seems to be quite an improvement over some of the other buttonholes we've seen. Is it a structured or unstructured jacket? Looking forward to pictures.

    this is actually super helpful. Guys, when you order swatches, can you upload/show them as well?

    The Luxire denim are not selvedge. This would make your standard jeans, similar to the premium jeans you would buy OTR, but custom made.

    The selvedge is "selvedge". The denim is of supremely high quality. The difference can be experienced every time the jeans are worn.

    The common image on both pages is the 13 Oz "slumby". The one on the selvedge page is the 14Oz dark.

    Sorry if this has been asked before (it almost certainly has):

    What's the expectation with shrinkage, stretching (and therefore sizing), and also colour-fastness (will these bleed onto you shoes until washed...)

    awesome. it'd be great to know, too, how you did the measurements (i.e. how did you communicate that information to Luxire)

    ^^^ agreed. I've emailed Theresa to ask about the process but haven't heard back.
