    Have added this product for ordering the item above.

    Affordable Pricing. It is a standardized product, no customizations allowed.

    Can be a good option to order your first jacket to test fit.

    As we have a small team and limited capacity for making these jackets, will disable the product after about 20 orders,

    Surprised to see the "no customizations allowed." Isn't that your whole raison d'etre?

    Were not sure either. But, this is a quick and low-cost product with a purpose.

    Fully customized jackets are always available.

    Does this one have a number?

    Or will "@luxire English Spread" do?

    It's the "English Spread" but with 3.25" points. (The standard points are only 3".) I also asked for it to be lightly fused with a soft interlining.

    Thanks. I was going to customize it like you, but the base is Luxire's English Spread, name-wise?

    Had three pairs of pants made. First pair weren't linen. Second and third were.

    Both linens are Luxire linen. Brown/chocolate and the off-white. They're unpressed above since they were straight out of the box. But I press them myself.

    I like them a LOT. They fit great. The only complaint I have is when you press them, the press at the knees is gone in a heartbeat since, well, it's linen. I was thinking that, if I got a 3rd pair, I'd ask them to run a stitch down the front and back for a permanent press. I forgot what it's called but I know it's hardly visible. Obviously that's not a complaint against Luxire. It's just linen being linen.

    The off-white linen was well received on multiple dates. :)

    Are the off white linens see through?

    They are a little bit. They're linen and they're white-based. Just something you'll have to deal with. Honestly, linen is casual. So it's not a big deal. I don't wear these to the office, I wear them because I go on dates and it still gets over 100f at night in Phoenix. [​IMG]

    The off-whites are ridiculously comfortable. They're the softest linen I've ever felt, and they're even Luxires own. I'd highly recommend them.

    thank you. they look great. Was there any reason you did not opt for the Dugdale? (thinking of getting a linen pair but undecided on which)

    Theresa assured me their linen was quite close to Dugdale. I haven't felt Dugdale, but both pairs of Luxire linen are extremely soft, and a little cheaper.

    They don't at all have a cheap feel to them.

    MTM is a process.

    Here is my chronological progress from first to third shirt order:

    On my current shirt I'm happy with the collar, the yoke, the chest, waist, seat and the forearms. The only thing that still needs fixing in my opinion are the upper arms/armhole. Suggestions welcome.

    The Brembana fabrics are really great value.

    You making excellent progress, Clap. All of those are better than %99.99 of shirts you will find out in the public.

    They look good, Clapeyron. What collar do you get?

    I just received my 2nd and it's much better than the first. The arms could use some work. There's also some billowing in the back when the shirt is tucked in. Other than darts - is there a measurement adjustment that would fix that? Is it as simple as reducing the waist measurement?

    Just reduce the back of the waist, i. e. "Waist: Front 20”, Back 17.75”"

    Kinda cool to see the progression and it actually improve like that.

    The only suggestion I could see would be to decrease the bicep measurement. If you reduce the billowing in the bicep slightly it we be perfected IMO.

    It is hard to comment on the armhole without seeing, but if you can lift your arms straight out in front of you and not have it pull up the shirt from your trousers, then it is fine.
