I thought general consensus on SF , which I don't follow, was darker colored trousers always look like orphaned suit trousers.

Seems that some people in this thread don't have as much of an issue with it.

There is a lot of SF consensus I don't agree with.  Pattern and texture come in to play with pants

I saw Luxire has a few fabrics from Harrisons now. Does anyone know if they can source any fabrics from them currently? For example, their coatings and moonbeam fabrics?

I am looking for a white non-see-through fabric for a shirt to be worn on formal occasions. I already have the lusterous fine white and the white fresco chambray, so I am looking for alternatives. What fabrics can you recommend?

 

I am also looking for a pale blue dress shirt for business wear. I have the pale blue popling 100s, which I don't like. I also have the  pale blue end-on-end and a couple of oxfords, but I want something finer than oxford. What can you recommend?

Try one of the royal oxfords.  Despite the name it is fairly different and more formal fabric than oxford or pinpoint oxford.  A slightly heavier cotton twill should work too.

I agree here. I don't at all mind a light upper/dark lower look.

I am a big fan of twill and royal oxford (thicker fabrics in general) as they tend to be less see-through and wrinkle less.

Has anyone specified alternate cuff stitching for their shirts? This is how my cuffs came on my sky blue oxford, which is fine for an informal shirt but I can't help but feel it could be 'evened up' for a more formal single cuff shirt.

Any thoughts/picture examples?

In not sure I understand what you mean. Here's my cuff for reference

Thanks for the pic. I mean that the stitching is not the same distance from the edge at each end so it looks uneven and to me, less formal. I was wondering if anyone had requested cuffs with stitching that looks symmetrical.

(Btw, your cuffs look tight! Do they fit over your watch?)

I think yours is standard. I asked for 3/8" edge stitching resulting in what you see in my pic above.

I can't stand loose cuffs. While not being tight, it doesn't ride up the forearm either when reaching forward. It stays in place. The watch barely fits under the cuff. Here's another pic

Are these really suitable for formal wear? I associate twill and oxford with more casual occasions.

Depends on what you mean by "formal wear". For example, I have a specific tuxedo shirt I wear with my tux, but if by formal, you mean with a suit, then yes I would and do wear both fabrics with suits. Royal oxford is a different beast than a regular oxford, even amongst oxford cloth, there is a big difference between a coarse heavy oxford fabric and something finer made by Thomas Mason (for example).

Something like a wedding or other festive event, where a tux is excluded via dress code.

Yes, absolutely. I like the texture of twill and royal oxford over broadcloth, it also seems to garner most compliments, perhaps because it's more noticeable. If you saw (again for example) Thomas Masons Goldline Royal Oxford cloth in person without me telling you what it was, I am sure you'd have no problem pairing it with a suit. As with most things in life, "there are dinner jackets and then there are dinner jackets."
