    Timo, please post fabric on the striped shirt. It's lovely. Also, are those buttons the standard or the thicker upgrade? Want to get a feel for relative thickness as I don't like buttons too thick (or thin).

    How green is the beige green trouser material? I've considered this color in the past along with the beige grey but since they don't give swatches of the dugdale......

    Is that the default second button position?

    The 2nd button on my shirts look a little bit higher than that.

    Not very green and a dark shade of beige. Not quite what I was expecting, but I still like it.

    Luxire, do you have a mid-grey stripe fabric similar to the picture I've attached?

    Well, how it fits, will vary due to the MTM process, but I think mainly the difference is in the leather details, f. ex. the leather on the neckband.

    Do you have an Olive colored ripstop fabric for chinos?

    For those in the know, especially luxire, what are the shirt button options if I'm looking for a thinner button?

    Will check on Monday, else, will get a shirt length dyed for you.

    Probably in dark navy but not grey. Will check.

    Yes, but a very heavy fabric, truly military grade, sourced from a military supplier.

    Thin MOP buttons can be requested. No additional cost.

    I have a great navy overdye oxford from Luxire. If I send a photo of a specific color, can it be replicated for another overdye oxford?

    Great, thank you. I will get a swatch (if possible) when I order my first shirt.


    Question for everyone. I am thinking about getting Luxire to fashion me a pair of swim shorts. They are going to be an almost exact copy of Orlebar Brown's setter (Not sure about color, but Orelar brown doesn't make a size that I would be able to wear, too small in the thighs for my waist). Wondering if anyone has any idea on the fabric I should consider?

    I'd like a swatch of that OD Green Ripstop shipped with the last two orders I put in. Can that be done? I'd really like to see that because I've been looking for something like that.

    I had them make me a pair of swim shorts. When I spoke with them (sometime in August) they had navy polyamide, which is the material used by OB. I ended up choosing the navy shade of Epic fabrics stocked by Luxire. I haven't actually had a chance to use them given the weather where I live, but the shorts look great. The only question is how the fabric reacts to chlorine, however I don't expect that to be a problem...I'll just rinse off after swimming. Hopefully that helps.

    Fantastic. Also, have you done any jersey-lined shirts at all? I love the version from Steven Alan, it's just too bad they're made for normal-armed guys.
