The Minnis flannel I also ordered (0307) is heavier and to my taste the better choice for a F/W trouser. It also has a nicer drape while the lighter VBC flannel tends to get caught easier on knee socks for example.

 

Any thoughts from other users?

 

I look forward to the "directly from the mill" fabric that will be on the site in a couple of months. Hope for heavier wollen flannel options.

 

Very light or very soft flannels, though comfortable, do tend to be a little fragile. Still popular as they are comfortable.

 

We will be adding a wider variety of flannels for A/W 2016, 9 Oz to 16 Oz.

 

If any particular fabric has not served you well, do share feedback over email. We can then move those out of circulation.

I avoided ordering them for this exact reason. They wear through so quick, I had a pair from Zegna (via ebay) done in a VBC flannel that I only got 2 seasons out of. Its just too thin to last. 

 

I ordered a pair in 0300 Minnis, and the Mid gray 540g. Fox bros. from Luxire, both of which are fantastic. I am thinking about ordering the new flannels from Minnis via Luxire, the colors are excellent. 

 

I too am awaiting the "direct from the mill" cloth to see how it looks. I need workhorse flannels, I am hoping they are substantial, and not just thin and fancy. The cashmere blend scares me a bit, I don't mind cashmere, but I want them to be substantial. 

 

DL-

 

The E. Thomas Cashmere blends are good, should be scared of.

 

Problem is not the Cashmere, but the weaving to make it feel softer, to let the cashmere shine.

We tend to avoid such fabrics as our wools are used primarily for pants.

@luxire The cloth I was referring to was not from you, but rather a flannel from VBC via Zegna which subsequently was made by Incotex.

 

I degress...Anything similar to the Minnis Flannels or Fox Flannels would be greatly welcomed by me for sure. I am always happy to be a guinea pig should you need someone to test the cloth for you.:nodding:

Thank you. I think I also need to defend VBC here and also maybe Incotex. Zegna, am not sure :)

@luxire Are you able to get Fox Flannels? 

 

Anyone else....what other mills is it possible to order from with Luxire? I am looking for a good Fawn or Oatmeal flannel, but I can't find anything at Minnis or Fox. Any suggestions?

Yes, Fox flannel is available. Will revert with any options in the said colors.

^ shoulders look good!
post #21368 of 25185

That does look good.

I am awaiting a jacket (essentially a remake of an earlier order) that hopefully will also have natural shoulders. Really looking forward to it.

post #21369 of 25185
Damn this looks good. I think a lot of people's hesitation to order a jacket will be eased with this.

Nice. So what was the request? Was it just for 'natural sholders', or minimal structure.

Just interested as to how to communicate it properly.

The VBC flannels are very comfortable and I'm not complaining. I just wanted to give a heads up for those looking for a more substantial cloth and the Minnis I have are perfect. I am wearing them today. Will try to post a photo later.
