    I just wish they'd get fabrics with the pattern running the same vertically and horizontaly. Just looks weird to me otherwise.

    Hand Welted. Except the stitching on the uppers, everything is completely hand-made.

    Our standard button-down. This was made stiff and is fused on request.

    Agree completely and am holding off ordering more trousers until a solution is found.

    @nostalgiaultra Adjusting shoulder angle for sloping shoulder, as has been suggested, adjusts the shoulder angle at the front of the shirt. However, the back of the shirt is where your main issue seems to be. I recommend showing Luxire these pictures with the request to adjust the shape of the back piece for a rounded back/prominent shoulder blades.

    Thanks for your comment, I will definitely send the picture as it best articulates the issues I'm having. It's strange because I've never had major shoulder slope issues with any OTR shirts. Hoping third times the charm...

    The description says nothing about the weave, but from the pictures it looks oxfordish. Is it more like Pinpoint or Classic Oxford?

    Isn't that just a regular end-on-end weave?

    Looks like plain weave with a relatively thick yarn.

    Received my military green duck canvas pants yesterday. I based the fit on the Epaulet ducks I own and added a few extra details:

    Very happy with the coloring (closer to the bottom two pics) and construction, will probably go back for the chocolate duck soon.

    Yes, I was pleasantly surprised at the darker olive color they turned out to be.

    I, for one, appreciate @althanis ' exuberance. I'll probably break them out later this week and will post some pics if I do.

    I feel like Luxire sent me the wrong material now...mine looked like a much brighter green, not a dark olive like yours. Do yours feel stiff like Epaulet's duck canvas? My "military green" felt a little softer than the chocolate duck canvas I ordered.
