Not sure there is really a regular turnaround time, but I'd say something like 2 weeks has been most common for me.

Generally one week for shirts once you have a pattern established.

Thanks -- do you know if they all come in blue, or are some test shirts yellow, as in the photo on the webpage? I'm not picky about the cloth so much as about the colour.

Any chance of a photo of the coffee brown cotton tweed?

I specifically requested and received blue, but it's hard to say if that would work every time. That said, I disliked the shade and texture of the blue one, so my advice would be to treat it only as a means of getting your fit right. If you wind up liking it too, it's a bonus.

Anybody know how to order suits/jackets from Luxire? I cannot seem to find any way to select fabrics and specify jacket measurements.

There are a few options listed, but you can email Luxire for any not listed for pricing, and, presumably, order details.

I've had fast responses on my inquiries regarding 3 piece suits from fabrics not listed in the jackets section.

While obviously not the same fabric, I was thinking about giving some of the 20-21 oz cavalry twills a shot.

I've got a pair of pants that fit pretty well that I'm using for measurement, but I need to slightly increase the room in the seat.  Should I add to the back rise measurement, or to the half hip measurement?  Or something else entirely?

Really????

 

My orders usually take 4 weeks but that has included trousers. Guessing that's the bottleneck.

@Quesjac, I also requested blue, but agree you shouldn't bet on loving it either way.

They are heavy enough that wrinkling is fairly minimal, although some is likely as the fabric softens up. They don't quite drape since the fabric is quite stiff, but from my experience the cavalry twill will be better on both wrinkle resistance and drape.

Generally for fit issues I would just send an email to luxire with a couple pictures and ask for their recommendation. They have been spot on in my experience for things like that
