We may actually have a polyamide fabric in Navy. Will check and revert. Polyester mesh is not a problem. A couple of the epic options should work well too. As they wont soak water, should dry quickly.

 

Am not sure how it would react to sea water, cannot imagine an issue though.

Extremely happy with construction, fit and mostly collar. Wished buttons were more pearly than milky, but small nit pic.

Very nice ensemble! What fabric is this, and what collar style?

I would be interested in those swimming trunks as well.

Epic is a fabric with a silicon interior, sea water shouldn't be a problem for its performance. May not get along with the dye too well.

How about chlorine? (I use my OB's for swimming pools as well.)

Should be fine (not that I can promise anything). You may slightly lower the life of the fabric versus a coat if the chlorine breaks down the polymer. I think you'd be very happy with it though. I have a coat in Epic and it preforms extremely well.

Luxire, am I right thinking thin MOP buttons can be had cheaper than thick ones because they can be cut from thinner (parts of) shell?

Just like NOBD I would be willing to pay a premium of up to $10 for more pearly buttons compared to the misty ones but $20 or $45 I definitely would not pay.
In general I would love to see a greater offering of thin buttons. Not flimsy, but something like 1/2 to 2/3 of your regular option's thickness so the buttons could be made up more easily.

Just placed my test fit order.  I can't wait to get the shirt. I'll post pics for critiques and to get a perfect fitting shirt.

Luxire should think about making custom peacoats for F/W this year in navy or gray melton wool offerings.

We will be glad to make peacoats if anyone would order. As with anything we make initially, the prices are very attractive.
