High-end, luxurious polos.
You guys are out of control, and I mean that in a good way.
Too early to comment on the sagging, but I do not think it will. Will try putting some samples through tests and update. The two "robust" ones were made by us? I doubt.
The structuring will work. We may have matching woven linen-cotton for the 3 shades.
When people send in shirts/pants to be copied do you simply measure the garment or do you completely de-construct it, measure the individual fabric panels and sew it back together again?
While I am sure they will confirm, there is no way they deconstruct and sew back together. That would be too great a risk on their part, and when I got my shirt back I sent in it certainly doesn't appear to have been re-sewn in any way.
Well, i have several RTW popovers and regular shirts in knitted cotton pique from Suit supply, Finamore, Fedeli, Kamakura and Guglielminotti. Some of them are can be a bit messy to wear, especially in humid conditions. The fabric seems to stretch much more than regular, woven, shirts. The buttons start to become undone, the arms are getting 3-4 cm longer, bigger waist, sagging collar, neck and cuffs become loose.
However, some have definitely a lining at those parts, like the cuffs, collar and the placket, other have the mentioned structuring or both. Those wear just like a flexible and comfortable dress shirt.
No deconstruction done. Rarely, we may open a few stitches to study some part, but, not unless we are sure of putting it together again without trace.
1) When ordering a jacket, how do you send them out? Panta has these nice boxes where the jacket hangs on a hanger:
2) How do you store items sent in for copying?
3) Would one be notified if you not just examine measurements but open up an item?
4) That Navy LC polo fabric looks great. I'd be interested in a natural light picture when you have made one up.
Luxire what would your thoughts be on having a limited run of RTW chinos or staple trousers etc. I know a lot of these guys are ordering because they might find it difficult to find trousers that fit well off the rack, but I've just got a pair of incotex chinos that I would be happy to send to you to act as a sample 33W RTW and then each person specifies the inseam. Maybe others would be willing to provide incotex or similar in different sizes?
Most recent turnaround time for summer blue gingham, order places 6/4, shipping confirmation received today 6/13.
Ordered the sky blue oxford last night!
Depending how the fit is, its the test shirt for my wedding!
^ I really love the sky blue oxford fabric. If I wanted to be more ish, I would order a ton of them and make it my OneShirt
Yeah it's seriously the nicest oxford material I've ever come across. All all oxford fabrics from Brembana like that?
That is a nice idea. We can make a pattern database of different sizes of different brands and people can simply order using that waist size and varied lengths.
Some shirts arrived today...
Clockwise, from top left: Persian Green linen/cotton, Maroon linen/cotten (I'd call it burgundy), black/maroon tattersal madras (I'd say closer to midnight navy/maroon), cream dress herringbone (more like beige), peach casual oxford (more like a fairly fine oxford), ivory white broadcloth. (Not pictured, a mandarin collar ivory white broadcloth, because the collar was creased a bit in transit and needs ironing.)
Great shirts, as always. Thanks again, Luxire!
