I would be very interested in that first herringbone for a jacket.
I'm also still waiting for some grey/white and brown/white striped shirting fabrics. Luxire, can you please ensure this is on your radar for the near future?
Agreed. I ordered a few of the most recent flannels as well. The fabric weight is borderline light for winter but I absolutely love the fit - particularly the slightly higher rise versus the Epaulet Walt and the HY Italians.
Construction seems on par for the price; far better than H&M, perhaps better than Club Monaco, but not quite as sturdy/refined as my trousers from the makers mentioned in the previous paragraph.
Personally, I'm going to hold off on the sportcoats for...
Gentlemen, if I may ask, I'd love for some first hand experience with finding the perfect shade of blue.
I can never remember the details of colour theory, and even if I could, I'm sure it's all changed by now.

My new favourite lasted about 5 hours on its first outing.
Tiecrafters will end up costing me approximately the cost of the tie. But, considering I got the last one (I think), I'll likely do it if the prognosis is even 70%.
Thoughts from those that have been in a similar situation? (It's a somewhat greasy sauce stain and I've currently got baking powder on it, if that helps.)
