    In relation to that, I appreciate that you put the weights of each fabric in the description. And these new colors do look great.

    As a reference point, how heavy is the original white pique (which I really like!)

    Thanks for the information, good to know the weights of different fabrics! And could you update the website with that information as well?

    Two questions:

    The Alumo 140/2 - university stripes - will it be restocked? And secondly, have you started sweater production (white sweater below)? Connected to that, will you get wool fabrics to make wool sweaters?

    No, this Alumo is gone for now. We may get it back but do not know when.

    Sweaters: Not this season, but, may be next. This particular fabric can be used for making something interesting. Opportunity to imagine.

    Does anyone have pictures or picture of a swatch of the amazon green twill chino you want to share with me?

    Oops, sorry I missed this. I sent in the tan jacket in one of the pics and requested a few changes (like the two-way zip and larger interior pockets).

    Hmm, it looked like a great fabric.

    OK, good, would be nice to get sweaters from you as well. Btw how is your new website (Luxire 2.0) doing? The website is OK now, but needs improvement as you've said yourself.

    Curious on the shirt order wait time at the moment. How many weeks is the current average to ship?

    Just to expand on this, what about pants?

    Could one order and expect to have a pair by the end of Nov?

    I just placed another order yesterday, so we'll see. [​IMG]

    Last order was within a couple of weeks or so, IIRC; very fast!

    Thanks for the detailed description! How much did you pay for customs? I measured two shirts that fit me pretty much perfectly, so I hope the shirt will turn out all right. If that's the case I see no reason for ever buying a standard RTW shirt anymore. Might just order a couple of shirts with your beefy BD collar next!

    I've ordered shirts each of the last months and the turn around time seems to be about 2.5-3 weeks. Shirts have usually shipped by the 2 week mark then pending on the time fedex usually takes about 5 days. Eg they shipped on the Thursday and arrived the following Tuesday last time.

    My turnaround time seems to be about 4.5 wks.

    I've ordered about 12 shirts now.
