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.
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.
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.
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.
