    ...and the Luxire stamp of approval.

    It does have a pocket (visible under a microscope) and the sleeves have vertical stripes.

    Anyone order a full suit yet? I'm considering taking the plunge since the price is right, but I'm a little concerned about how the button holes and shoulders are going to turn out, given some of the examples we've seen so far.

    amen. Pockets with shirts that are for daily wear. No Pockets for shirts I know I wear with suits. (white herringbone with FC for one example).

    And if Its always Casual, I add a glasses pocket.

    For my jacket (the brown cord jacket from a few pages back), I don't have any complaints about the shoulders--they came back pretty much exactly as I wanted them.

    My personal advice would be to avoid functional sleeve buttonholes to err on the side of safety there (though it sounds like Luxire is actively working on improving in this area).

    Tons of shirts but this is the goldmine. Best pants I own. Luxire brown linen. 2" cuffs. Everything else is pretty regular.

    Fit looks good, but the pants look a little long. Are you wearing shoes? What's the break like?

    Not wearing shoes. They may be slightly long, but I actually have abnormally long legs. I'll get them hemmed.

    And let me remind you of what Luxire and I were working on together. Right is the first pair. There is no mistake in measuring, this is how pants usually fit me. Left is after I pinned all the excess fabric. And you see the new pair, above. Quite the overhaul.

    Definitely an improvement from your first pair to your most recent pair. Brown linen looks great, can't wait till my pair is ready.

    Very nice mrjester ^^^. I don't really need linen pants here in Canada, but damn that chocolate brown looks very nice.

    Thanks guys.

    Smooth - I need all the linen I can get. I only have one linen shirt and one linen pant, which are both pictured above and arrived today.

    Luxire will be getting more orders for trousers pretty soon here.

    The only weird thing is on the buttons that hold the cuffs. It makes it hard to alter and hard to have one of the trouser clamp hangers. So I guess I'll get my length right next time as I like no break. Debating if they're worth it, since they are cool, or to not have them on again.

    Yeah... The buttons are cool, and I may have a pair of chinos made up with them, but for dressier pants, I'm not sure I like it.

    I think that's what I'm going for. I didn't ask for them and didn't even know the first pair had them. They're pretty badass though, a great idea. Since I didn't ask, I'm guessing it's Luxires standard. Kind of a cool signature.
