    Any hope for some blue/brown/white mixed linen(/cotton)? Houndstooth pattern maybe?

    Thank you, I do have a very prominent seat - as you put it.
    I talked to Luxire, they recommended raising the back panel and moving fabric from the side of the hips to the back.

    We made a leather jacket. Full grain calf leather, vegetable tanned, custom processed for Luxire.

    Theresa, is it possible to tell us which fabrics have a natural finish and which have been treated with, for example, resins?

    Louis, this is the best I can do. Posting it here in case anyone else was interested in these two fabrics. Photo was taken using natural lighting but indoors right next to a big window (will have a blue cast to it all). Hey, it's cold and snowy out there!

    You are my personal hero, thank you so much! :slayer:
    Good catch on your girl and pooch. :)

    Now if only Luxire would add a chino fabric similiar in color to your JCrew chino...

    Resins? Wow! I know the Waterproof fabrics are quoted with something. All other fabrics are "normal". I wonder from where these originate. Not come across any so far.
    I think there a quite a few. No plans of creating an alternate to a paint shop shade card.

    Well, I had a conversation with a bespoke shirtmaker today, and he told me about fabrics being finished with resins.
    According to him a lot of people react very sensitive to those.
    Shirtmaven too hinted at it for no less than an Acorn fabric:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/181380/shirting-fabric-is-acorn-still-the-best-bet/0_100#post_6545469
    Never had a problem with your shirts, just wanted to ask to make sure.

    As for a chino fabric in a light shade of khaki, I have swatches of your
    "Ecru Twill Chino"
    "Khaki Twill Chino"
    "Light Tan Twill Chino"
    "Dark Cream Soft Chino"
    "Beige Cream Twill Chinos"
    as well as a pair of your "Cream Twill Chino".

    Sadly none of them comes close to a pair of Incotex pants I've got, the pair of Epaulet Rivet Chinos in Clay I have posted several times before, or the JCrew chino atoms has posted.
    A shade like that is a chino classic to me, easily to dress up with a navy sportscoat or dress down with an untucked OCBD.
    All of the swatches are either too close to a true white or noticeably too brown in color.
    I would love to see you add something in between.

    I'm hardly an expert but I'm pretty certain those "resins" refer to the resinous treatments used to make non iron fabrics. If you avoid non iron you should be more or less clear. Plenty of fabrics are treated but non iron fabrics contain formaldehyde which sensitive people may react to. Again I'm not an expert but that's what I've read and it makes sense.

    I received my first shirt, a blue Oxford. The fabric and construction are excellent. The BD collar is GREAT. It's what BB used to make...unlined, beautiful roll. I like it a lot.

    Unfortunately, several of my measurements were not correct (some off by a full half inch). I took photos and sent an e-mail to Luxire. I am hoping they offer to remake the shirt as the one I received is too tight to wear.

    Not a big deal. Based on the construction, fabric, and fast turnaround time, I expect to be ordering many more Luxire shirts.

    No, it's their standard collar. The roll is very good. The collar points are not as elongated as on the Barba BD. It's more of a traditional J. Press/BB collar but better than what those companies currently make.

    Looking good. How much (approximately) will the leather jackets cost?

    And will you do leather jackets in black? I really love some of the designs Temple of Jawnz do (or used to do...).

    Like this Double Rider-style in black:

    Just curious, maybe I am missing something, were would one go to find the measurements from a previous order? I ordered a chambray shirt, and I would like to order another and I cannot find my original measurements. Does Luxire keep a record of them?

    Thanks,

    David-

    Anyone have images of their chambray goods from Luxire? Or does anyone have a suggestion as to their best chambray?

    Essentially I am looking for a workwear style chambray shirt: double pockets, contrast stitching, throat latch ect. I have the Slubby Chambray already, wondering if any one has experience with their other options, likes and dislikes.

    Thanks!

    If you want a ToJ, get a ToJ. They're still taking orders, and I doubt Luxire will be able to source leather that's as high in quality as what ToJ have available.

    Oh, I didn't know that they are still taking orders, thought the owner/designer would stop making leather jackets and start his own restaurant or something, thanks.
