    Can you estimate the price on a "barn coat"? I would want it lined, probably in a quilted, flannel lining.

    With Luxire shirts, you have the option to provide neck and sleeve measurements, and then choose a generic fit (slim, standard, super slim, etc.)

    It would be nice to have the same option with pants. Provide waist and inseam, then choose a fit (slim, standard, relaxed, etc.)


    Even better would be to have the standard pattern measurements for a given waist size published somewhere, so customers could see what a "standard" fit looks like, and use that as a baseline when making tweaks to fit.

    Those flaps ain't wimpy. You make an interesting point. I have almost the exact same measurements, and I too have searched far and wide for a collar that can accommodate my long pencil neck. I have an order in for a 1.75" collar, and I'll wait to see how that turns out. Anyhow, thanks for the response.

    Luxire, any intention to introduce seersucker material for trousers (and possibly a suit) in the next 9 months or so?

    Did some red stripe options get removed from the menu? Was looking to order them in a few weeks possibly.

    I am.
    Should I send them an inquiry?

    I both like their natural MOP as well as eggshell.
    The shape of the buttons looks very nice too.
    The only need to come in smaller diameters - 14", 16" and maybe 18" (9 to 11mm) - and should be 2 to 2,5mm thick.

    Natural MOP:

    Eggshell:

    The buttons shown run between 0,45€ and 0,55€ each, so I am positive a set in smaller diameters but with greater thickness could be had for less than $10 a set (seven to eight buttons on the placket, two to six on the cuffs/gauntlet and maybe two more for button downs).

    EDIT:
    Had a look at the buttons of a lot of shirt makers and think I have found my favorite.
    The color too looks very nice:

    From the front I imagine them to look something like this:

    Another less yellowish but more pearly coloration I like is the following:

    Curious what you guys think.
    By the way, inquiry to Augsburger Knopffabrik sent.

    Got a reply of the Augsburger Knopffabrik, they produce buttons from buffalo horn, buckhorn and ivory nut.
    Special orders can be had from 500 buttons per design.
    They only sell, but don't seem to produce mother of pearl buttons. Bummer!

    So far we've only seen one jacket posted in this thread. Surely someone else has gotten a suit or sportcoat and can comment on the fit and quality?

    That's so weird that that happens. They're always ultra responsive to me.

    Just got a shipping notification. Shirts/23 swatches.

    Last time I got very quick replies, this time no reply at all.
    Was posting here to bring it to their attention.
