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.
