I haven't ordered in a while. The days of 5 day turnaround are long gone you say?
I ordered my latest pants on 24.05 and 2 shirts on 9.06 and neither of them have been shipped yet.
I hope my new shirt won't take long, because I need more linen.
I don't think the pants length is unreasonable
If you go mtm it would take a month or maybe even two months and it would be twice the price
Btw, for those that ordered pants already, do they come with the shirt gripper things?
No, but if you request it they will probably do it. I suspect they assume that you are also wearing one of their shirts which has a 90 degree sleeve angle and doesn't pull out due to arm movements despite being tailored in the body. It's noticeable when I'm wearing an OTR shirt the day after wearing a Luxire shirt.
Not sure they will make the 5 days. Fed-Ex is posting something about a "shipping exception" that is delayed "beyond our control." No idea what that means. My first order made it out without any issues, though. Patience is a virtue...a really shitty one, but what else are you going to do?
Just got the ripstop khaki's in cargo style today. First impressions are pretty good. Nice balance between fashion and functionality. I asked them to make sure the stitching is rugged. Fit is good if not slightly loose...need to check measurements given. It's very likely I plussed up the measurements from normal slacks for the cargo style.
DAKs with belt loops...turned very well actually. Color is same hue as copper chino (they used copper chino as the waist liner) but more muted version. The ripstop material is softer than expected and not at all course like my other OTR ripstop shorts for example. They made a button closure on my leg opening per my request to reduce the diameter an inch if desired. They put it on the inside of the leg so it's not visible from side. Nice.
Will consider ordering the black ripstop after wearing these on vacation soon.
Woah, this is all 100% linen?
The fifth one from the left (blue stripe) is linen/cotton.
Tehbunny x Luxire attempt(s) at the Mercer collar:
I think it turned out pretty well Though it took just under a month
The blue one looks very nice, which specifications and/or order number?
I think the pale pink one only needs a wash and will turn out just as nice.
Both same but may be nature of fabric or my shitty photography; order number is #3361, unlined and unfused.
Nice. What is your linen shirts to cotton shirts ratio?
1:3, I think. I love linen, and wear it almost every day in the warmer part of Spring and in Summer.
