Great, what would the price on shorts be compared to pants?
The same, you just make the inseam shorter.
I've only worn them three or four times but I haven't noticed any exceptional creasing.
But you use less fabric, so it should affect the price a little, 3/4 of the trousers price would be fair.
But the work is minimally less, which is probably the cost driver. Differentiating prices between shorts and pants also leads to extra work, which again leads to higher prices. What about those who wants 11" shorts vs, those who want 5" shorts; same price? $60-$90 for MTM shorts is also ridiculously cheap as we pay the same for crap quality shorts here in Norway.
I need to replace a shirt that Luxire made for me since the collar was somewhat off from what I had specified. Does anyone have experience with shipping to their facility in India and what service did you use and how much did that cost from the States?
got my shirt in the linen chambray in
fabric close up:
I like the fabric a lot. It's definitely very casual, but has a great texture and a lot of depth. It's a medium weight linen, and it's somewhat rough to the touch, so I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with especially sensitive skin.
I've also noticed that certain fabrics make up slimmer than others (despite having identical measurements from shirt-to-shirt), and this is more of a looser fitting fabric.
I don't know if I'd order another shirt in this fabric (it's pretty unique), but I'm very happy with it for the price. Should be great for the summer.
I literally just wrote 'I want a nice collar roll."
I think specifying collar point length/width/spacing is just too much micro managing.
it probably helps that I have a 16.6" neck on 18.5" shoulders and a 41.5" chest.
I've written a number of different things, including 'good OCBD style collar' or 'borrelli style collar' and they all turn out looking like that with no particular difference.
also - luxire I think you consider using thinner MOP buttons for collars and gauntlets. can be a pain to use them with smaller button holes
That is what I tried to convince them of earlier myself. Sadly it seems there are too many people who love very thick MOP butons, eventhough they are a pain to do up.
The linen fabric looks lovely by the way!
I occasionally struggle for a second or two with a button, but it's well worth it IMO. I have other dress shirts with thinner MOP buttons and they don't look nearly as nice as the thick ones Luxire uses.
just got the info that my pants & pocketsquare will ship next week. can't wait
It took me a while (sorry about that), but here are a couple fit pics of the copper chino. The leg shape looks a little funky in the pictures, mostly because they're in need of a little ironing (this was more or less straight out of the package). It is a nice fabric, I'm pretty pleased. The shirt is luxire's blue striped oxford (also right out of the box, so somewhat wrinkly). The fabric on the shirt is just how you'd expect an oxford to be - nice and hefty (it seems considerably heavier than the purple striped oxford I have from them).
Is this a photo or the colour of the fabric does not seem to be even similar to the one at luxire web site? It's much more brown than yellow, isn't it?
You may have already tried this...but specifying hand-shanked buttonholes makes it a lot easier to do up the buttons in my experience. And the gauntlet button becomes easier if the same orientation as the cuff buttons.
