    Could you give some estimates/ quotes for a fresco suit? Maybe inbox message it. I was told you guys offer great bang for the buck

    The hunter green is a better match.

    The bronze twill is a good match, though not exact.

    Brown chinos - No reason to say no, just not come across the right fabric. Hopefully soon.

    Suits in Fresco will start at $600. The attached image is a testimony to the "bang for the buck"

    Hi,

    I have one pair of your chino's so far and I like them very much. I am now looking to source dress slacks.

    Are your closures on dress slacks different from your chinos?

    that is a three button closure like Zanella?, an elaborate closure like Incotex?

    Pleated and curtained waist band?

    Thanks,

    jb

    To clarify, this is a full suit with, I'm assuming, the $225 Fresco fabrics?

    That was fast!

    Thanks. Just wondering what your standard is if one is not specified.

    Nice jackets too.

    The standard chinos and standard slacks have similar front opening and curtaining inside.

    Second shirt from Luxire with another good result. One thing though, your yoke seems to be shorter than all my ready to wear and it causes bunching at the back just below the shoulders like what someone posted earlier.

    I have a polo shirt from the Stretch Line of Lacoste (silver crocodile). It's pique is more finely woven than that of the fabric Luxire uses, which makes the Lacoste shirt look more dressy. To me polo shirts are casual by nature and I prefer it's more loosely woven pique Luxire offers. The heathering is subtle but very nice. The fabric is also soft and very comfortable against the skin. Like I said before, highly recommended.

    The construction, too, is very good, as I am used to of all the garments I have had from Luxire.
    They use the same MOP buttons as in their dress shirts.

    I asked for a non standard collar, like in a Kent Wang polo shirt.
    http://www.kentwang.com/polos/polo-grey.html
    Sadly it did not turn out the way I imagined it, the collar is not nearly as cut away as I wanted it to be, the lining of the collar and collar band sizzles and the buttonhole and button on the collar band were not included.
    This is definitely caused by a misread picture though, not because of the lack of skills of the Luxire tailors.
    I will speak to Theresa and am certain the shirt can be saved by simply attaching a new collar to it.
    This time I will give the following link to them.
    http://www.thesimplyrefined.com/kent-wang-polo-shirt-kings/

    Also, as I really want Luxire to offer an option like it, I did a bit of research on a nicely striped linen fabric like I have seen it worn by gentlemen at the mediterranean plenty of times.
    My idea was to ask Luxire if they would be willing to do a limited (or permanent) run of shirts from a fabric sourced and sent in by customers.
    So if enough people enter the group MTO, the fabric could be sourced and a shirt made by Luxire to your own pattern you have with them.
    Imagine something like a NOBD navy linen gingham MTO with a fabric hand picked by our master of MC Casual. :)
    To begin with, I found this Thomas Mason fabric which I would love to have a shirt made of.
    Would you like to have a shirt made of it too and be willing to join the group?
