Shoot, my pants pattern is finally perfect. Going to be bad for the ol' wallet. Shirts just about there, too.

Also, major props for making white canvas jeans using just the measurements from Left Field's website (what I requested). Just perfect translation.

That jacket looks good.

Sorry about the bad photo.

I like the shoulder look on that, definitely no roping at all.

EDIT - I love the fabric too. How light is the tweed IRL? Is it wearable in warmer climates?

Soft is a pretty vague term. I will probably request an unstructured shoulder with zero padding. Southwick by Epaulet did a really good job on this in their latest round of jackets.

I just told them a lapel instead of a collar and sent this image as a ref 

they made it a little different, but I didn't really mind, the only thing I would have changed was probably the bicep and overall arm width since it fits a bit snug, wouldve preferred a little looser, not really a problem with short sleeve shirts though, and really a long sleeve shirt would be sort of redundant anyway as this is more spring/fall weight.

How does this fabric work? http://custom.luxire.com/products/navy-denim-chambray

If you don't order extra wash, you get the dark blue? Is this cotton?

That is correct. If you don't specify wash (and pay the extra $20) you'll get unwashed dark blue by default.

 

The fabric is fantastic. Medium weight and doesn't wrinkle much. I actually have this shirt in both a medium blue wash and dark blue. I'll photos of the dark blue once it arrives this Monday.

Any recommendations for plaid/flannels? I'm looking for something casual that looks similar to the Saint Laurent ones.

Fantastic, looking forward to seeing it. I've had that shirt on my wishlist for a while. Thinking about going 1-piece collar and no placket, or else typical button down style.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend suiting fabrics that would work well for the tropics? I live in a country where temperature is consistently between 26C-32C (79F-90F) and humidity is quite high.

 

Would a 84/16 wool/mohair be a good choice for a suit? Is the weight/weave of the the DFW open/light enough to be an option?

 

For SC, would a cotton linen canvas be a good option? It appears to have a very open weave but I'm concerned with the 345g/11oz weight.

 

I was looking for wool linen blends but options appear very limited. Any other recommendation would be welcome.

^ Minnis Fresco is a great option.

I'm currently wearing a fresco jacket as I type this here in humid 85 degree Chicago weather. It's a great choice, just get it unlined.

Thank you Patrick, Beatlegeuse! Ill try to go for a minnis fresco SC, maybe with a 1/8 (butterfly) lining.

 

For a suit that can be worn at more formal settings but still be appropriate for the climate here, should I consider going for a fresco in wool + mohair blend? I think the mohair would give the fabric a bit more sheen than a pure wool fresco thus nudging it a bit on the formality scale.

Fresco is definitely appropriate in a business setting, especially in water climates. That includes both the wool Fresco and wool-mohair blends. When Luxire's new suit program rolls out I plan on picking up a mid-grey Fresco suit (#0501).

EDIT - 1/8 lining is the way to go, only in the upper back and sleeves, that is the plan for my suit jacket.

I was on the fence on that VBC rust. Seeing it now makes me regret not getting one during the sale. Will definitely be in my next Luxire order.

Great choices on all the pieces Patrick!
