    My emails have been answered very quickly. I have emailed a few times within the last couple of weeks.

    I have, but i think it has to do with the fact that my inquiries might be a bit trivial.

    I was inquiring as to what Dugdale or Molloy fabrics they had on hand, so that i could order a variety of samples that could actually be shipped. I thought i would ask rather than take a shot in the dark, so hopefully some email news will come soon. I have some jacket projects in mind, and wanted to see some swatches in person first...

    Corrected, thank you!

    We have implemented a new customer service system and also have 3 more people replying to emails, a total of 5 of us now.

    Though most mails are being replied to quickly, there are some pending mails as we jostle between the older and newer systems.

    Should get streamlined in about a week.

    Got a small roll of a new white fabric few weeks ago. It is an enhanced cotton fresco chambray.

    The mill that makes the fabric spent about a year developing the yarn. They were trying to create a cotton yarn with a linen look. I think they achieved much more.

    The fabric has a bit of a linen like look, is soft, airy and extremely comfortable.

    It is pure white, images appear slightly off.

    We are trying to convince the mill to make it for us in light blue as well.

    Beautiful! Is the fabric see-through at all? Do you think an undershirt will have to be worn?

    Well, I'm game. Order placed. I'm going to guess blue would be very nice in this. As would an indigo (assuming that by blue you mean a more typical dress shirt blue).
    Yes, I think so too... and we'll see what a popover in this looks like in a couple of weeks. :)

    Light blue in that fabric would be excellent. I'd definitely give it a try.

    The yarns are thick but the weave is not too dense. Can be called a bit see-through.

    Wore it without an undershirt today and I did not feel I was missing the undershirt.

    Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I will probably order a this fabric in a short-sleeved popover in the spring (hopefully this fabric doesn't sell out before then). Too many cold-weather items to order in the meantime.

    @luxire : Thank you for the explanation. If I have a time sensitive request (i.e. I need a tuxedo shirt by 2/4/15), should I send a PM here or just wait for an email response? I'd prefer to order it through Luxire, but it may be too late if I wait another week.

    Hi All,

    When ordering your shirts specifically based off previous orders, are you still specifying how much fusing and interlining or is it assumed to be the same?
    @evilmerino @ammanati Can you guys chime in?

    Thanks

    I specify fabric and previous order number. That's it.

    Sorry if the following question seems a bit noob-ish, but by that, you mean you add the fabric to the cart and leave all the measurements blanks, and specify "use the measurements and style of order #xxx", that's it?

    Never ordered from Luxire, but hope to give it a go in the next months.

    Yes. "Made to same specs as #XXXX"

    All I did was specify fabrics, my own measurements, and collar style based on previous orders within the Google Doc. The reason I ask is because on one of my shirts I ordered the "Longflower" collar which didnt include fusing or interlining details in the Google Doc. The shirt looks good but I assumed the collar would be more sturdy but instead it has no fusing or lining. Obvious this is my own user error but going forward I wanted to be sure how I can approach this better. I suppose I can just include those sort of details next time.
