    Good to know. You were satisfied with the luxire sport coat? I will be doing the same shortly. Your original coat made it through shipping around the world in good condition?

    What fabric did you go with for your sport coat?

    The jacket was beautifully made, lots of hand work everywhere. The only noticeable difference between the reference jacket and the Luxire jacket was that the shoulder padding was very slightly thicker. I will be posting pictures when I get around to it - hopefully before the new year. I have ordered another sport coat. As far as I can tell, my Zegna jacket was very well taken care of.

    Did you pack it yourself?

    Very interested in seeing pictures.
    What's the construction on the jackets - full fused, half canvas or full canvas? I assume one of the first two, and I poked around the website but didn't see an answer.
    And since I was already on the question of handwork earlier today, I assume, as with shirts, the handwork is an additional charge (same same with pants, right)?

    Sorry, should have only quoted the one line.

    Did you pack your jacket yourself to send back to India?

    @luxire Out of curiosity, what is the process for custom shoes? Foot tracing?

    Is that the same fabric as back then? I got it as well and it's my favorite chino fabric.

    Not the same fabric, but similar.

    My jacket is full canvas which I believe is the standard method for Luxire. I didn't ask for any hand work it just came that way... I assume this will be standard for all of their jackets (hand work where it makes sense, machine work where it makes sense to do so).


    Yes, I turned one sleeve inside out, nested one shoulder inside the other shoulder to fold the jacket in half vertically then folded again horizontally and put it in a bag inside a box.

    The new jacket arrived in a fabric suit bag with my original jacket inside the new jacket. If I recall, it came in a box not a bag like the shirts but either way it arrived safe and sound with minimal wrinkling.

    @luxire: Does this mean you guys can now last for weird feet like super wide feet with narrow heel?

    We can last for all foot types.

    What we have learnt is that getting the fit of shoes right is an iterative exercise.

    We are now trying to get to the process for perfection and fitting that into the global online model.

    What's the weight of the cloth? It doesn't seem to drape as nicely as a Oatmeal and brown Donegal cloth from Molloy & Sons found here. Weight is 600 grs / 21 oz. [​IMG]
