Got a quick reply from one of the manufacturers (Bruunz Bazaar - DK brand) and they said their peacoat was made with 26 oz wool. Its not the exact  same jacket as I had from BB, but I'm guessing the weight is quite similar to the model I owned.

 

That jacket was 70% WO/30% PO, and the cheapest Luxire one is (well for navy 14 oz) is 90% WO/10% PO, which I'm guessing also might affect how warm it feels.

Dugdale Duckegg Moleskin, transformed into this wonderful jacket.

Unrelated, but where is that fair isle sweater from? Exactly what I've been looking for.

Jacket looks nice as well.

Nice jacket.

"Action pleats" in the back would have been nice as well for that one:

The KW polos are my hands down favorites in the summer. To be fair to Luxire, I have other shirts made by them, and they are the best-fitting shirts I have.

The collar is what's keeping me from ordering the pique just yet. I'm thinking that fusing might provide some needed structure? This may be worth some discussion with Luxire before ordering anything. I've noticed that if you leave something crucial un-discussed, then you are rolling the dice and may or may not get what you thought you would.

Here's a photo I posted a while back of a white pique Luxire polo I had made. I went for a man-sized Tom Ford-style collar, unfused, and it's soft (as you'd want for a polo collar) but holds up pretty well. My only caveat is that the pique did shrink a little in the wash so make sure to account for that in your measurements.

Does this problem happen to anyone else? my shirt collar changed from the last order.  I requested that I be the same as the last batch I got.

^^ looks like collar size, length and style changed? which one is the latest order? Im curious as I just placed another batch with reference to previous order.

Any chance you guys will be making something like this in the near future?

I changed the collar size by a 1/4 inch, however I asked in the comment box to ensure I get the same collar.  This is not a disaster in anyway however I am just not sure how I even tell them that on future shirts I would like the original collar.

 

Note: the one on top is the first shirt and the collar that I want.  The one on the bottom is way they sent me yesterday.

wait, if you asked for a +.25 inch then asking to keep the same collar from a previous order, it seems conflicting to me.
As you pointed out, ti doesn't look bad at all, as long as other measurements are spot on. I normally sent a separate email with latest order# with instructions "For measurements please use order# xxxx, with the following changes: 1. xxxxx 2.- xxxxx ...." So far everything has been spot on...

Is this the usual turnaround time now? I placed order for 1 shirt on October 6 and still order unfullfilled (payment authorized - what does it mean?).
