Yeah, last i asked for swatches of the trousers/dugdale they refused to do so as a matter of policy.
i have chinos from both and quality is similar. Luxire wins for me, though because I have to special order for my small waist and get the pants tailored a bit whereas with luxire turnaround time will be similar, i can make modifications and custom requests at no extra charge, and no tailoring needed after receiving them. Price wise, chinos are cheaper on luxire and trousers seem to be similar price with epaulet. If you can nail down a good fit, I'd say go with luxire and buy from epaulet when they have some special pattern or material that luxire doesnt have
Glad to make a quilted vest. We use breathable waterproof fabrics from Epic and can make any kind of outerwear using them. Epic fabrics come in in different materials like cotton, poly, nylon and their combinations and thus allow a lot of flexibility.
