On another note, I have to strongly recommend Bijan and @JayH for alterations.   They did a superb job re-cutting a pair of Luxire trousers, including totally changing the fit in the fork, seat and legs  and doing slanted cuffs. They were also kind enough to provide fit advise gratis for future orders.
@luxire   How would you compare the quality and softness of the newly added http://custom.luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/tpr-pique-baby-pink-knit-tpr_baby_pink_pq_02, with the previously available linen-cotton pique range (http://custom.luxire.com/products/linen-cotton-wine-knitted-pique) and soft knitted pique mesh range (http://custom.luxire.com/products/crimson_red_pique)?   Thanks.
 I'd be interested to know about the comparison between the G&R 140s poplins and the Thomas Mason Goldline 140s Gize 45.
Since we are discussing fabric orders/promotions, my old tailor used to buy a roll of top selling cloth, and offer it on promotion whilst available.   I wonder if this could work for the high end fabrics at Luxire, particularly in the classics? For instance, after some kind of vote/EOI/pre-purchase, Luxire acquire a roll of the cloth, such as H&S flannel in mid grey/navy, Thomas Mason Goldline/Alumo/G&R blue poplin, Dugdale 130s in herringbone navy, etc. As they are not...
Thanks :).
Trial shoes arrived today.

That is the addition of the final linings, insole and upper won't change the inside volume?   It was mentioned before by a member that the trial shoes are not guaranteed for longevity. If we want a second trial, is an...
 I'd be interested in linen-cotton blends, no synthetics (often allergic). I've had blended jeans like these in the past by Zegna, and they're great. But given that the linen makes them more summery, I'd probably lean more towards a classic 'denim blue'.
I went DE about 18 months ago. Apart from some bigger cuts I haven't looked back. I would probably practice with a BIC single blade first, if you can handle that you'll be fine with DE. Just use the weight of the razor, don't pull.   I bought a Muhle closed comb, with a synthetic handle as it slips less than the metal ones. I also got a Muhle synthetic brush, as they require less soap, are softer and lather far faster than the traditional ones. I use Tabac soap, really...
Thomas Mason is owned by Albini, so you can get that exact fabric via Luxire. There are Thomas Mason fabrics on special atm. Or you could go nuts and also get David and John Anderson cloths.
