I have the Original Gitman Shirt of that. I fucking love it. Wore it to the Disco on Thursday.
Seems like my package is taking the scenic route!
Bangalore > Mumbai > Dubai > France > Mumbai (again)
I'm starting to think that FedEx screwed up and sent it toward Austria instead of Australia, noticed, and then sent it back the correct way.
I am wondering if anyone knows if it is possible for @luxire or anywhere else to print custom fabric. This interesting shirt that was posted, has reminded me that I am looking for a special fabric pattern that I think would have to be a custom job. It would a similar idea what foxhound just posted. Would only need enough fabric for one or two shirts.
I think sometimes the package is scanned at once place and then moves on to another, and then it registers again in the system even though it's moved on. I can't imagine how a company like FedEx would allow for packages to go around the world like that. It costs money to move things.
Well now it's in China. Even if you map out the points without the duplicate entry, it has gone toward Austria, and then back toward Australia. Someone screwed up.
Can be done. We had offered such a service on the forum about a year ago.
Printing is digital, similar to our pocket square printing.
What sort of fabric would it be printed on, and what's the pricing for this?
That becomes a broad set of options. Contact Us to discuss.
My latest Luxire order for one shirt, one pair of pants and two polos from 29 April just arrived: To sum it up: Each single piece is more amazing than I have ever imagined.
However, there are two flaws, that I would like to address right at the beginning:
1. One polo is in the wrong fabric - I ordered Crimson red (burgundy) and received Fire Brick Red (bright red).
Personally, I try to avoid wearing warm colours. Precisely, I don't wear bright red, pink, salmon, orange, apricot and turquoise. I just don't feel like I am looking my best, when I am in one of these colours (my troubled skin is accentuated).
What makes this even more sad is that both polos were shown on this thread about a week ago. On 15 June I wrote an email asking if the pictures showed my products, as one of the fabrics was not the one I requested. I didn't get a reply up to this day.
2. The shirred back yoke on the shirt is, at least for my personal taste, too high and wears uncomfortable. Apart from that I wouldn't change a thing.
A few notes:
0. My second Luxire shirt, my third pair of Luxire pants, my first two Luxire polos
1. These pants should be worn with suspenders, but I was in a hurry so I didn't put them on
2. The wrinkles below the seat, that were an issue with my last pair of pants, are completely gone (thanks to recommendations by Theresa based on photographs)
3. The pink linen lining was not requested but is very tasteful
4. The shirt collar is custom and awesome. Exactly to my liking.
5. The polo collar is a recreation of the Eidos Lupo collar
6. The polo measurements themselves are taken from a Kent Wang polo size M
7. Order-# is 6997
I'm going to let the images speak for themselves right now (sry for the horrid quality/lighting):
Loving your Polos, thanks for providing order number, I might just order 1-2 and recreate the same collar! Also, I really love the shirred shoulder on the shirt, especially in linen!
The placket is a bit deeper than my eidos, is that by design? Or is it just the way the picture looks, and it's actually an exact copy? Just deciding if I copy your order for the 1 piece or send my eidos in for copying. Thanks, it all looks great.
The collar has been modeled after a single image. I haven't sent in the original polo. I think the result is really close and it will become even closer wash per wash when it softens down.
Any suggestions for summer chinos? I'm looking at the Summer Soft Khaki Twill. Anyone have any experience with this fabric?
Did you intend for the rise on those pants to be that high KingPSQ? Maybe it's the perspective of the image.
