The main item I'm looking to have made in the early 2016 is a Sea Island cotton shirt or similar.   My Luxire 2015 product of the year has been the bespoke shoes. I'm looking forward to having the final version done shortly (I had two trials - final delayed by my long road testing), and I've already ordered a second pair during the previous sales. The raw materials and construction of the shoes is first class (> English handgrade levels), and the lasting and finishing...
Does anybody know when Kent will be back to answer emails?
The above shirt options are quite close in price to Charles Nakhle. The attraction to Luxire for me is the quality of the make and their flexibility not so much the price as they are in line with Nakhle for similar quality fabrics.
I saw the Fox Solid Oak Umbrella at Stand Hatters. To be honest, it is elegant, but a little too understated and expensive for what it is.  I think I'll get the Kent Wang Tiger wood or Whangee instead.
Where is the best place online to buy a solid fox umbrella? I'm thinking of a cherry or oak with a navy canopy.
 Thanks. The only worry I have with the semi cutaway is the points showing if I wore a coat and tie. How big a faux par is this?
For a plain white, french front shirt with no pocket, would you get a semi cutaway, full cutaway or the 'curved' cutaway popular these days? It is likely I'll be wearing it with no tie most of the time.
@luxire , are any of the Albini fabrics just added from the Thomas Mason Goldline range? Thanks.
 You could try the Dugdale 120s and cashmere, of the 130s. Ask for a quote via email.
I think it's kind of crazy that an MTM service can't get you a trouser and coat to fit simultaneously, that is the point for a lot of people. That can often be achieved via MTO and split sizes.
