    The delays in emails and product delivery can be frustrating and I have some stuff that's a bit overdue too. As Ashish and someone else mentioned above, they've been caused by the recent holiday season. Workers travel by foot or bus or other means of various reliability. So a couple day holiday may turn into an essential master pattern-maker, tailor, email checker, and/or packing clerk being gone for a week and a half. Then the next holiday begins... I've emailed Ashish about this recently and he's more frustrated than all of us. Every day he hopes this person or that person will be able to show up. He's trying to see it as a difficult learning experience for the first year in business and plans to make adjustments for next year. Hopefully things will calm down soon, and all the workers will be back from their sometimes-epic journeys. But as I've said to him a few times, "better right than rushed."

    SB: Thanks for clearing that up, I thought I read of others getting shipping notifications as well. Guess mine is still being made then. No worries. Having yet to hear a truly bad review, I feel fairly confident it will be worth the wait.

    I'm sure this is non-recurring. After all, this period of time is a major holiday in India.

    If all goes well, I'm sure I'll be placing subsequent orders in the near future. And I'm confident it won't take nearly as long.

    Thank you m for summing it up perfectly.

    Quality wise, we are uncompromising.

    We are also committed to the 5 day delivery cycle and are working on building the infrastructure around it.

    Some more amazing fabrics will be added over the next 3-4 days and would continue to be added in time for Christmas

    That is true, but common sense dictates that, no matter what the website says, there will be occasions through the year where the advertised times are not achievable. Think about it, you're getting MTM shirts, at a very high standard, for not a great deal of money. Waiting a little bit longer, on occasions, is hardly going to hurt you, nor is it reason for complaint here. Exercise some common sense and patience, at times, and everything will be fine.

    FYI, my shirts - ordered almost a month ago now? - are on the way, so things are happening. At least a week-week and a half of the delay was due to my changing things around etc.

    Thanks Lachyzee. I guess I misunderstood your initial comment. Have included swatches for the couple of new linens we received. I have a feeling that you would like them. Will try to have them on the site later today.

    Luxire,

    Can you give an explanation of what the different fabric composition of the linen blends mean? Eg Medium weight - Linen 21 x Cotton 70s, Medium weight - Linen 14 x Linen 14, Medium weight - Linen 21 x Cotton 120/2

    How do these translate to the percentages that the blends are usually given in e.g. "Linen 60/Cotton 40" or similar.

    What are the practical consequences of, e.g. Linen 21 x Cotton 120/2 vs Linen 21 x Cotton 70s ?
    Thanks

    The Linen numbers and Cotton numbers basically depict the counts and construction of the fabrics.

    The blends are about 50% cotton and 50% linen.

    The 70s vs, 120/2 blended with similar linen fabric is done based on the look of the linen achieved after the dyeing and finishing of the yarn. Thus, the best match cotton yarn is used for weaving them together.

    What exactly makes a fabric "Easy to Iron"?

    Now I really can't wait to get my shirt and go through this process. A couple of those fabrics have my name written all over them. Thanks for posting.

    These are 100% cotton, the cotton is of a higher quality and the yarn is finished for better ironing performance.

    In contrast, the non-iron shirts they sell in the mall are treated with a layer of non-iron coating which gets washed off in a few laundry cycles.
