Shirt and trousers by Luxire.
 Wish they'd make a solid version of it.
@luxire which fabric is most comparable to the maroon university stripes oxford?   I don't mean the colours or pattern, but the properties of the fabric itself. The way it feels, the weight, how it's virtually wrinkle free, etc. I must say this is the best oxford fabric I've ever had. It requires hardly any ironing after a wash, it doesn't wrinkle much throughout the day, it's very soft, it's not too heavy and not too light. Simply perfect!   Please let me know if you...
 I don't have any Vass at the moment, but when it comes to construction they're supposed to be far superior. Read the shoemakers thread for example. There's also a whole thread about Vass on SF. I'm sure you could find all the info you need on there. To be honest, I don't find the leather quality on my G&Gs to be as impressive as the price suggests.

Those G&Gs are nice, but a bit overpriced for Goodyear welted shoes. In that price category you should really go for hand welted. Check out Vass.

It's pointless ordering 3 things right now if you won't wear them 3 months from now because the fit is off.
 If you want casual and Italian, get the widest lapel, unpadded spalla camicia shoulders, light full canvassing, 3 roll 2 notch lapels, patch pockets, rounded (barchetta) chest pocket, brown horn, dark brown corozo or smoked MOP buttons, double vented, 3 sleeve buttons, pick stitching, high rise flat front or single reverse pleated trousers with 2" cuffs. If you want you can go for side adjusters over belt loops. I prefer side adjusters, but it's up to you. All these...
