Classic Blue Oxford:
Less pronounced (paler, less contrast between the blues) than your example (which is quite nice).
There were some questions and PMs on pricing of the branded fabrics.
It is always a challenge. We like to keep our items affordable. One reason it took so long. We have been able to find a way now.
Most shirts in Zegna, Scabal and Sic-Tess will be ~$300 - $350 (You read it right! )
Will add some in the $150-$200 range as well.
Zegna cords and moleskin will be $400
Shirts in the USD 300-350 range will be rather hard to sell if you ask me. I might be mistaken but at that price, I can ask CEGO in NYC and do my shirt on site with them at a lower price.
I understand the fabrics cost you a fortune but being on the internet also removes a bit of the charm of MTM. Sometimes, it's nice to come to a MTM shop and discuss, sit and have a drink. It might sound curious to some but it's actually an important part for me.
I would try to focus on some Albini and Alumo shirts in the 150-200-250 range.
Was wondering, has anyone tried to specify a curving collar band that enables the collar to sit higher up like this:
I think I'm going to give this a go for my next shirt.
Yes, I have. See this post.
I'm not entirely convinced with the results. I suspect this works well when really bespoke to the slope of your shoulders but cannot be copied by online MTM.
Talking of which, do Luxire do bespoke pyjamas? I could use another pair of flannel ones and many of their flannels currently in stock would work well. I generally either buy M&S (flannel) or Derek Rose (regular cotton); I reckon Luxire would be able to do them for about the cost of the M&S but with the potential spec of the Derek Rose.
