Similar question - I don't have nor ever have owned any lined chinos. Has anybody lined their chinos - if so, what was the purpose? And how were the results? TIA

I half lined my test chinos but only as an experiment, as I intend to half-line a linen sale purchase and some mid-grey wool trousers (haven't chosen my fabric for those yet so I'm open to suggestions!). I have no complaints with the half-lining so far.

@Luxire: Is there any news about the knitwear offering?

whatever the material when it's lined it prolongs the cloth's life by handling the perspiration better...I think. I always get my pants lined since wool always scratches me, I got used to it so just got my chinos lined anyway

I 100% am in favor of this.

I agree here, but I stick to only lining pants in a cloth that has a habit of stretching out of shape (flannels).

 

I prefer pants to be unlined personally, the longevity does not outweigh the comfort/airflow/sweat factor for me.

Hi all.

 

I'm getting the navy chambray for my next shirt and was wandering if you get white or brown buttons for this one?

I have a denim shirt (washed) with white buttons and I feel the contrast is to big.

 

Also could I get your suggestions for alterations on this oxford adjusted for sloping shoulder and taken in 1" from lower back. Sry forgot to iron.

I would personally go with white button.

One of the legs looks a bit wonky at the cuff, but these are straight out of the box and haven't been pressed yet, so that should be fixed easily with a good ironing. Shirt and shoes in this pic also from Luxire.


Did you send them measurments or a sample of your best fitting pants?

I started by mailing in a pair of decent fitting pants a while back, and it took several iterations of changes to get the fit exactly the way I wanted. Now that I've gotten this fit I won't be messing with my pattern any more.

Has anyone had much luck getting a true zero tie space collar? 

 

I have requested it, but the way the button is placed in relation to the button hole does not result in a zero space as the button naturally slides to the edge of the button hole when tight.  The button placement is set up to achieve zero tie space at the opposite end of the hole.  In addition the collars are not attached in a way to create the almost-crossing effect necessary to achieve zero tie space.

Maybe they're having a hard time visualizing what you're going for. I bet if you sent a shirt (or even took a picture of one with notes) with a collar like that, they could copy it pretty easily.
