Will have the individual fabric weight added to the peacoat options. We did add some heavy Dugdale wool (25 Oz) yesterday for peacoats.

 

I would believe so and I agree that Theresa handles the emails wonderfully. But is the technical issue resolved?

 

Secondly, good thing that you added 25 oz Dugdale wool, but I would like to know the weight of the cheaper option at 249$.

 

What would the production time be? Approximately of course, interested as winter is approaching. And larger pictures of the fabrics would also be appreciated.

Am surprised it took you 4 weeks to discover a damage on the shirt that otherwise was top 3 in your rotation.
In the interim, for 4 weeks, you were in possession of a shirt you had not ordered, did you not feel inclined to let us know that we shipped you a wrong shirt?

Did some more talking. Do check the shirt again. I doubt Lee would have sold you that as Sea Island.

I will post pictures later this evening when I get home. I came back from my honeymoon and have subsequently been travelling for work and I usually waiting 3-4 weeks between trips to the cleaner as I don't wear dress shirts everyday and have enough left in my rotation. Plus this aforementioned shirt had been out of rotation for over 2 months, so I wasn't going to do a special run to cleaners just to get back in my rotation more quickly.

.... Not sure why I need to explain myself though...

Also not sure why I am being questioned about my shirt being Sea Island. It absolutely is and Lee Baron has a good enough reputation on this board to doubt otherwise.

You've got a good thing going on these boards, Luxire. Don't sour that with pissy, condescending responses to someone who has a legitimate issue he wanted to share with the rest of us and who isn't demanding anything from you except information to help explain the situation.

Seems like Luxire could've shot you an email regarding the hole, but it does seem that they tried to do right by you.

That's a fair point. If the shirt was obviously cut to the measurements of someone else, I would totally raised it. To be honest, I thought it was a logistical error on their part and I rather not be bothered to mention it as if they were to ask me to send it back. I mean, if it was their error in sending me an additional shirt, I just don't think I should held accountable with the effort of repacking it up, figuring out what to do with return shipping, and heading out to the post or Fedex office.

I agree with your message. I do not agree with your assessment of the intention here though. 

 

But, will go with your message.

Yes, the issue with our systems was resolved.

 

Weights have been updated for all options.

 

Production time is expected to be 3-4 weeks.

 

Mouse-over on fabric shows larger image.

OK, excellent, thanks. I see that mouse-over gives larger pictures, but I would like to have an option of displaying them as you do with a lot of other shirt fabrics, when double-clicking gives a larger picture.

 

All options of the peacoat is customizable, right? Especially wondering about the sleeve tabs and vents on the jacket. 

 

What do people think of the weight on the standard option? I Imagine the 14 oz with wool flannel lining - how will that work for a coat to be worn in wintertime - when the temperatues might drop down to -10C during winter time?

Wouldn't a 14oz wool flannel shell with a wool flannel lining in effect be double layered flannel, making it a 28oz flannel pea coat?  I'd expect this to be heavy enough for just about any weather.

On Luxires pages it only says that a 90% wool flannel lining is available, I don't know the weight of the lining. I just know that the 90/10 (wool/nylon) is the standard 249$-fabric, whether it be navy or the other colours.

@ timo: the navy, bronze and copper chino, while all different in style, were all one order so I can't give you one order number.

Metal side tabs once set don't give in elastically unlike DAKS. DAKS are great for golf trousers due to the flexibility. They are the sweat pant equivalent to dress slacks.

I like your adjusters very much too and would like to get some pants in this style as they are the most traditional way to adjust chinos afaik. Did you just send them pictures of the style adjusters you wanted?

I just can't see any nefarious intentions here. What would they possibly be?

Any plans for luxire to offer a cavalry twill? Something like Sid Mashburn's is the perfect weight for the winters we get here, i.e. fall for the rest of the country.

Huddersfield offers cavalry twill here http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/gallery.asp?Category=22&Subcategory=&Page=7.  I believe Luxire has access to all the fabrics listed on their site.
