A lot of those PJT suits are cut as one button coats with a second button attached. I personally don't care for unfitted tailoring on women.
 Sean from Vince Maloney & Co works there now. He's very good on fit for either alterations or their MTM services. 
 Thanks for the code. Can fabrics not listed online be ordered as an additional service? Also, if we are buying an additional service for a new order, such as MOP buttons, do these count as products? I assume additional services for old orders can't be included?
As I mentioned, I'll report back in a few weeks on the G&R poplin. Perhaps you could try a white pinpoint shirt or ask Luxire for a voile?
 Thanks for the review. Realistically, almost all Poplin wrinkles easily and is slightly sheer. I'll report back on the G&R 2/140s soon, but my Alumo Supraluxe shirts all crease significantly throughout the day. However, I do have a sample of Alumo Soyella 2/170s, which I believe is a voile, and the sample is showing crease resistance. 
 I believe that the following waistband interlining choices are correct (@luxire please correct me if I'm wrong): Default - soft unfused interlining Ban-Rol - thicker/stiffer unfused interlining Fused - a light fusing to the main cloth provides the structure Rubber Grippers - these are not part of the interlining, they are part of the banding. They replace part of the skirted banding, with the rubber helping to stop the shirt from falling out. The grippers have a touch to...
 Would it be possible to confirm that this is an unfused interlining and that it is different to/independent of the rubber grippers?
 I think they have a stiffer unfused interlining. You can also ask for a lightly fused interlining (unless you are getting suspender buttons placed on the banding) which I think gives an even better result than the thicker unfused interlining.
This was my first Luxire shirt order. This Alumo 120s is not the same as the Supraluxe 120s. In this price range (based on specs alone) I'd try the http://custom.luxire.com/products/luxire-white-poplin-100-2 as it's an Egyptian cotton. I think it's still a part of a special.
Regarding the TM Lewin Fox Brollies, they have the TEL5 Telescopic for $70, and the GA1 and GM1 basic tube umbrellas for $90. These are very cheap compared to the Fox online store. I bought the former for practicality. I almost went for a GM1 as well, but decided to save for a GT1 tube or a stick.    They also have 20% off atm if you sign up for mail.
