    You should probably be sure of your feelings before you post in haste and possibly impact a business's online reputation.

    Amazing jacket, Ashish. You guys are already really popular around here, but with unlimited options for customization and the recent additions of Grand and Rubinelli, Brisbane Moss, Ventile, and shoes, we may soon have to rename this "Luxireforum"!

    I think it's time that Luxire conquers the SW&D crowd.

    Simply buy bulks of black virgin wool and black viscose and black leather basically stick to black in different textures and offer to replicate Damir Doma Silent, Rick Ownes and Yoji Yamamoto. The SW&D crowd will never complain that something is not "fitted" enough and will never complain about having too much fabric somewhere they love voluminous, drapy silhouettes.


    I wonder how easy it would be to draft up a pattern for drop crotch pants...

    Luxire to me is one of the greatest gems in this forum along with viccel and sam hober.

    Great quality paired with great service. A business that really listens and makes proper use of their client base.

    I'm getting some trousers made based on some Lanvin's I own, very much SW&D, though not particularly drapey. Also, a huge black scarf.

    If I remember correctly someone came in here maybe 6 or 8 months ago and asked about getting drop crotch pants made.

    As soon as my Luxire Oxford shirt drops in I'll order a BD made with this fabric.

    I can recommend this for all the blond haired people out there. It's an ideal F/W/S fabric for casual outfits for cool skin tone types.

    Can't wait for mine. Ordered it about a week ago. Should be shipping soon, I guess. I'm not blonde but I'm sure it'll be just fine :)

    You're on the list for shoes right? Have you gotten a price?

    Same here. Almost feels like a cotton flannel. Very nice blue too.

    Yep, shoes are $200 for this first initial run, not sure yet how much the price will increase on future runs. They said that 2-3 people got in but I haven't seen anyone else post about it here since then.

    How is the fabric? Is it soft? I have never experienced chambray before.

    For those of you asking about http://custom.luxire.com/products/navy-linen-chambray my shirts arrived last week and I thought I'd share some pictures and thoughts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The color on my monitor is a bit more grey than the actual shirt, but the fabric is best described as a navy gray rather than navy.

    As for the fabric itself, the finish out of the box can be best described as somewhere between your grandmother's favorite woolen blanket that was easily mistaken for a fire ant colony and a cat caressing your flesh with its claws. It was the first shirt in a long time I was unable to wear without an undershirt, which is somewhat disappointing. On the other hand the fabric seemed to relax considerably with each wash and I'm sure with time will be as comfortable as your favorite pair of 10 year old jeans.

    So the answer to whether I would recommend the fabric is yes, with a big, pulsing asterisk next to the yes that assumes that you understand that this is a shirt that you're going to have to work with to get the most out of.

    Just received my first shirt from Luxire. Pleased with the feel and weight of the fabric.

    One question though, is the horizontal button hole on the placket a standard feature?

    Yes. All of my shirts have it.

    It's ideal too - gives the shirt a small amount of movement as your waist size varies throughout the day.

    Having shirts without it annoys me.
