What'd you order?
It's tough, but not uncomfortable at all. They're perfect for the British/north European climate. I wouldn't want to wear them in 25C weather, but that rarely happens here anyway.
And I'm over here preparing for 49C in a month or two. MORE LINEN/COTTON!
How much are sportcoats/blazers running from Luxire? I couldn't get any info from their website.
Very interested to see how the linen-cotton looks and wears. Look forward to seeing those MrJ
"Wrinkle free white fabric for shirts" - Like some of the other members, I find the lustrous fine white to be a bit too wrinkly. Any other suggestions? While we are at it, any suggestions for a similar wrinkle free fabric in a light blue color?
A nice resource for nailing down collar measurements and such:
It's great because of the descriptive pictures of each collar style and the exact measurements of each collar, which one can use for luxire.
I see some of the stripes shirts have a seam in the middle of the upper back, and the stripes get together forming an angle, I never seen this before, is it common in bespoke shirts?
That's a split yoke.
I recently ordered a minimally structured Dugdale wool sport coat and it was $650. I think prices are lower for fully unstructured cotton. Best to send them an email describing what you want and they will quote you a price.
Me too. Will be a while though. I don't know what the turnaround time is for chinos (and am too lazy to look in to it) but I don't think it's fast. Going to wait for this pair first.
Can you post some pics when it arrives?
Has anyone else had experience having a SC made by Luxire?
I am seriously thinking about getting one made, I was impressed by my first pair of pants that arrived yesterday.
I'm ordering another suit from Kent Wang, as long as it comes out perfect, I'll send it in to Luxire to have them make a copy in a Fresco fabric
I honestly can't help staring in awe over the picture of your tab collar shirt, which leads me to ask if you already have plans to do the same thing with a club collar.
