    Has anyone tried the wrinkle free white poplin? http://custom.luxire.com/products/wrinkle-free-white-poplin-80-2

    I'm looking for a white fabric for every day wear that will resist wrinkling but be crisp, formal, and simple enough for suit wear that isn't heavy or hot wearing like a twill tends to be. Open to suggestions for potential fabrics that fit the bill from people who have tried other white luxire fabrics.

    I did -1 on the whole back panel, so over the whole length, and +1 over the whole front panel. I'll let you know what the results are.

    Beautiful collar IMO. Would it be possible to get a picture with a tie as well? Would be interesting to see how the collar handled it.

    Order #3257, 14oz dark indigo. Use measurements from a well fitting, but slim pair dress trousers. Pleats are necessary for me in order for the trousers to accommodate my quads while still being somewhat slim, but you can leave those out. Same goes for side adjusters if you prefer belt loops.
    • Zip fly with hook-and-bar closure
    • 2 rear buttoned welt pockets
    • Side adjusters
    • Single, shallow reverse pleats
    • Plain seams, so not welt seams


    That's a fantastic collar. A picture with a jacket or tie would be great. How high is the collar band?

    Thank you for the very detailed response, very appreciated.

    Like the others above if you get a chance to snap a pic with a tie on would be fantatic.

    This should be added to the spreadsheet, if hasn't been done already.

    This looks pretty close to the details in the pair I'm waiting to be made. Hopefully this means it might not be too much longer!
    I agree with this, when I placed my order I was looking for a slightly dressier shoe, so I think the welt should probably not protrude too much. I don't think the last looks too bad, maybe could be slightly sleeker, but I don't like really chiseled lasts, I like a rounder toe. Also, I'd like the edge trim color to be a little darker, it looks more casual with the lighter edge trim, and would be harder to pair with a suit. However this is all speculation and those may not be a prototype of my shoes at all...

    Your shoes style have much narrower edges.

    These were made with the pattern we have for your shoes, but, for more casual wear as we wanted to try antiquing leather. The person wearing them is heading our leather goods making exercise, helping test the shoes. Initially tolerated a lot of pain in the feet with some of those improperly made shoes.

    These were made for me and I enjoyed wearing them yesterday. They were amazingly comfortable. The finishing on the outside is pretty good, the inside needs to be finished to look better.

    Also features the New Luxire Shoes logo.
