Wow, how's that for coincidence? On the other hand, I'm not completely surprised by the choice of a man of good taste smile.gif.

Thank you. I posted pics of the previous jacket here. I'm sure this one will look as good or better.

Me too. A lot of unconstructed jackets are made rtw nowadays, but they're usually too short in the body and with too high a button stance, which is why I asked Luxire over a year ago to try to make one. They've done a great job imo and why I have a few more in the pipeline (that cotton twill, some vintage flannel I washed in hot water to make more dense, wind-resistant and durable, the heavy linen I posted earlier, and probably a corduroy jacket after that).

The fabric in the picture Luxire posted recently was stuff I sent in. But the suit I posted a month or so ago was Luxire fabric, probably this, which is very nice too. I believe clapeyron posted pants made of it too.

VBC flannel is very good, as would be Drapers. Drapers is softer than the Minnis and probably less durable. Was I (and someone else above) mistaken in thinking you once had a Dugdale flannel that was less expensive than the Minnis?

Just FYI, the blue hounds tooth is much much softer than the end on end. I'd get it. And forgo the swatch.

Thx. The end-on-end is already quite soft. Will have to wait until Spring...

Finally got the fit down with only minor alterations from the second pair ordered. Just ordered one pair of trousers in each of Minnis mid-grey flannel, medium grey plain Dugdale Royal Classics and the tan version of the Dugdale Yorkshire Cavalry Twill (went with one of the 15-16 ounce ones, the 20 ounce ones are probably a bit heavy). I'll be excited to see what other medium grey flannel Luxire is able to source. $300 for good MTM flannel trousers is definitely a good deal, but the ability to get a good flannel trouser for less would be excellent.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Oooh, that would be mine. Part of my second order, and the fit's great. It's still pretty cool here in Melbourne, but next order's probably time to get on the linen/cotton bandwagon.

Has anyone ordered trousers in Duck-Egg moleskin? Is it sort of olive green?
