Dry Clean.

Usually made for you within 4 weeks, but built to last a lifetime. Please check you are happy with our wait list before you order.

Sizing - There is no charge to make this as a made to measure item instead of a regular UK size but we'll need to get some instructions from you about size:

1. Measure down from the nape of the neck to the waist.

2. Measure down from waist to knee.

3. Bust at the fullest point

4. What bra size do you usually wear?

5. Measure your underbust. 

6. Measure the distance down between this point and your waistline.

7. What is your waist measurement?

8. Measure around your hips at their fullest point.

9. How far down from the waist is this?

What if it doesn't fit?

This item comes as a made to measure item and will be made exactly to your specified measurements. Made to Measure items miss out a trial cotton fitting process, and are instead made straight from your instructions, and so offer a slightly quicker, less expensive alternative as sometimes that's all that's needed. 

Upgrade to Bespoke.

Enjoy peace of mind by simply upgrading to our bespoke service, and we will send you a cotton fitting toile so that from the comfort of your own home you can check all your measurements for precise fit, change any elements you weren't sure about and generally tweak your final design to get a perfectly tailored garment.

Ordering is easy.

We'll need to get some instructions from you about size and colour, so when your order arrives with us, we'll send you a short chart to fill out by return email.

What if it doesn't fit?  

We want you to have a perfectly fitting Lux item and keep coming back for more, one of the ways we do that is by making sure you're happy and inspiring your trust in us.

If you find your finished Made to Measure order doesn't fit you, yet it is exactly to the supplied measurements, and you wish us to alter the item, there is a small charge of £30 per hour plus materials. We often don't charge you for small tweaks here and there.
If you have upgraded to Bespoke service then your order should always fit you perfectly, since it will be a duplicate of the final agreed fitting: and we try and have as little time as possible between final fitting and finished garment, we also keep a record of all measurements and the final fittings stay in the studio until we hear back from you that your item is perfect. But if there is any error on or part we will make good your item immediately, or remake it if necessary. You can be completely confident that with our bespoke service you will have a perfectly fitting item.

To find your regular glove size, take the measurement around your palm, glove sizing is still done in inches, so you'll need to convert if necessary - 2.54cm = 1 inch.

Our gloves are on the tight side, so you may want to round up or down according to how you like them to fit, a good regular fit by sizing up, a super tight fit by sizing down.
