    Knitted polo shirts are launching soon, may be a couple of weeks. Just awaiting some key machinery.

    Sweaters and anything knitted as per order is being planned as well. Will take some time though.

    Sweaters would be great, as I'm having trouble finding sweaters of decent quality at an OK price, and I guess Luxire might fill that void.

    Knitwear is a very different animal from shirt and trouser making...

    This.

    Good knitwear is expensive for a reason. It's very hard to source high-quality materials and to nail down solid construction. This is why the best knitwear makers in the world only do one thing: knitwear.

    Not to say it's beyond Luxire to bring something of quality to the market, but bad knitwear is very easy to find. It would be interesting to hear if they have consultants on-hand for their tailored and knitwear forays.

    Quality is a mindset. We will not launch the product till the level of quality is achieved. A lot of different steps and processes go into any product launch. Many people contribute. Being in the garment hub of India and close to one of the largest knit centers in the world, Tirupur, we have access not only some of the best equipment used in the trade, some of the best brains as well. There may be initial flaws, but the quality will shine through them. Once these are ironed out, we will be ready to start work on the next "difficult" product.

    This is our older "silky denim".
    The newer ones will be posted later this week. One jeans and two shirts in them were made and are being tested. One of the shirt fabrics is worth living in all summer.

    Theresa, the jeans doesn't look too bad for a first try!

    From what I can judge from the picture, I have to agree you definitely need to get better hardware and replace the buttons on the fly.
    Like I have said before, I would love to see nickel plated rivets and buttons, I think they pair very well with the indigo of the fabric.
    Also the rivets on the right pocket need to be positioned closer to the edges. The lower rivet on the left pocket is positioned best of them all imo.
    Also the money pocket looks a bit off.
    The waistband, belt loops and stitchting does look quite well already.

    EDIT:
    The green gingham shirt looks nice.
    Are those the new, thick buttons on it?
