I have some that are lined to the knee and others (mostly lighter summer wools) that I've gotten unlined.
 A good alternate to the Minnis Fresco would be the "Dugdale Fine Worsted" line.  They're also in the 8-9oz range and made with a slightly open weave.  Though I can't speak to the Frescos, I've found the Dugdales to be pretty good for the hot and humid DC summer and they're about $50 less than the Frescos. Example: http://luxire.com/products/dugdale-light-grey-plain-8960
 As others have suggested, I'd also recommend lengthening the shirt and not reducing the waist measurement.  I'd say go for an inch longer (at least) if you plan on wearing the shirt tucked in.  As far as darting, I have it on two of my shirts. It works well but I'm personally not that big a fan of the darts. For my subsequent orders I asked that the back waist be reduced by 0.50 inches.
 This topic comes up every now and then and people pronounce it differently.  Luxire themselves say: 
I ordered the light grey plain (8960) dugdale and am finding it really comfortable. Haven't hit peak summer but I think it'll do the job and have placed an order for the darker grey (8961 I believe).I've attached a few images for general reference to compare to shades of Minnis Fresco. Take what you will from them. Photos take on an iPhone do don't expect professional quality here (as seen in comparing grey shade of the 8960 one photo to the next).
Thoughts on Dugdale Brothers New Fine Worsted as a comparison to Fresco, Crispaire, etc? Cutter and Tailor goes into a short, limited discussion but curious if anyone has any first hand experience. http://www.cutterandtailor.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=537
 "Avacci Telagio" has been around since I started following Luxire through SF. It's the name of the parent company and is used in some of their international (non North America) operations. http://custom.luxire.com/pages/about-us
 I don't check my mailbox too frequently. Was pleasantly surprised to find Viccel's package in there.  17 days from the date of order to my pick up. Minus a few days (possibly) to account for my lack of checking.  Not bad.
 If you have an account though FedEx's website, you can manage your incoming packages and electronically sign for them.  I'm never home to sign for packages myself so I do this ahead of time. 
 I received my "Indigo Chambray:Light and Airy" shirt today.http://luxire.com/products/indigo-chambray-light-airy On first impressions it seems like a really nice fabric. Much softer than a similar J.Crew shirt I have. Will try to update sometime in the week after I've had a chance to launder and wear. Probably shouldn't have gotten it as a button down, but meh. Out of the box:   Please excuse the lower quality cellphone pics. (Also ordered "White With Blue Black Checks")
