    I'm considering moleskin pants in brown or light beige. Anyone have "real" pics of either color? I'm weary of luxire's pics. It wouldn't take much difference from the pic to be a color that isn't as versatile for me.

    Any other thoughts on moleskin from luxire or any other winter weight fabrics would be appreciated.

    Are you sure this is the Bengal stripe fabric you ordered? It looks to be a completely different scale stripe than the shirt Luxire shows with that fabric.

    What kind of conversions did you guys do going from body measurements to peacoat measurements (as in, add an inch anywhere or whatever)? Also, did anyone get theirs yet / have fit pics to go along with it?

    How much extra would hand-finishing the button holes be for shirts?

    That's been gone for quite a few hours already. When you enter the code, it no longer works.

    I'm interested in the moleskin too, and almost made that my first order of trousers, but didn't want to spend that much on a Dugdale moleskin yet for my first pair. I'm curious if anyone else got them, I hear that they're good for winter.


    If I were you, I'd really try to get a peacoat to try on, measure, and adjust it accordingly - adding and subtracting wherever you need. Even if it fits really badly, I think it would be better than trying body measurements. If push comes to shove and you don't own one already, I hesitate to recommend this but you could just buy one, do the measurements then return it.

    I used to own a sterlingwear... i think 38 short. I'm not sure how all the measurements line up. http://www.sterlingwear.com/cart/index.php?p=page&page_id=size_chart I remember it being fairly boxy and could shave off a few inches in the waist, but i'm not sure if it would even look okay.

    Sometimes the measurements differ from those charts, just a warning. And sometimes they don't have all of them.

    Good luck whatever you decide to do!

    Got this email from luxire about the peacoat measurements:

    Use body measurements and add the following to it:

    Chest, waist, bottom: + 8.00 inches to full/rounded measurement. +4.00" to half/flat measurement
    Biceps: + 8.00 inches to full/rounded measurement. +4.00" to half/flat measurement
    Cuffs: + 6.00 inches to full/rounded measurement. +3.00" to half/flat measurement

    Yoke will be measured same way as the shirts. Adding 1.0" to may be a good idea for some more movement of the arms.
    Sleeves should end about an inch below the cuff joint. Measure about an inch smaller than shirt sleeves.

    Will try and explain the way to go about it. (All numbers are in inches)

    Talking about the chest:
    Suppose, the body measurement for the chest is 42.00
    The flat/half coat measurement for a skin tight fit will be 22.00 (44.00), taking into account the thickness of the fabric and lining etc.

    Now, we do not want a skin tight peacoat. We need to add room for the shirt, the sweater or jumper or any other clothing we may be layering inside.
    We also need some more room inside so that there may be some amount of air circulation and we do not feel suffocated or are not uncomfortable wearing the coat walking out from a restaurant after a heavy meal.

    If you need to err, err my making it bigger, not smaller.

    A lot of queries on peacoat measurements. We have thus added a standard size chart:

    For garments like these, if the fit is good on the shoulders and sleeve length is right, it will look nice even if there is a bit of room in the body/sleeves.

    Also, if you have sloping shoulders, it should be mentioned in the notes. Gives a much more elegant fit.

    Is there any way of getting full details of my previous order ?

    I want to order more shirts with the same measurements as last time and dont want to go through the hassle of taking measurements again :embar:

    Just quote the order # in the notes of your new order. That is all I do (i.e. Use order #4000 for style and measurements but with the following changes...).

    I really should have, just didnt cross my mind that the order confirmation email would have full details. Anyway, I checked my mail after your advise and funnily I dont have any mail from luxire maybe because I didnt create an account while ordering the first time.

    That sounds odd, because in my experience, everywhere sends an order confirmation regardless of whether or not you create an account with them. I'm sure after some back and forth they'll be able to find your order number. Good luck.
