    We have also added an 85% Merino , 15% silk Blue Shirt option. This is also made for us by EThomas, a Luxire exclusive.

    100% in for Minnis Flannel group buy

    @DavidLane - since we never were able to work through the other two frescos - do you think Luxire would be open to a flannel group buy? It's gonna start getting cooler fellas.

    Agreed! I will send an email to inquire.

    I’ve got another idea in the works which I will be posting on soon. Sorry for the lack of details but I want to get my sample piece in first. Should be good for the fall too.

    You wash wool pants at home? In a washing machine? I was always under the impression that wool garments are dry clean only and washing them any other way would damage/wreck them. is this not true? I would love to wash my wool pants at home to avoid the harsh chemicals involved in dry cleaning.

    Not is a machine. Usually just rinse in plain water or sometimes using mild detergent. Then, I dry them flat. I do not wring them.
    Ironing well is important and I get that done professionally.

    Washing machine and strong detergents will certainly wreck them.
    I have met customers who only steam their woolens and then iron.
    Some in northern Europe also said they never wash. Just hang them and let the natural disinfectant in wool work.
    Everyone has their own little trick.

    Worth trying initially with old or the less favored garments.

    Manufacturers and mills say that wool should be dry cleaned. That remains our official line too.

    No, just some photos of the swatches against each other, against a white background, etc, as the light gives a different perspective.

    When it comes to colours, it could be a solution if @luxire add a greycard (a card used in photography to set whitepoint and exposure) to all future photos. Everyone can then choose to tweak with the pictures as they wish. A prerequisite for correct colours is also a calibrated screen and everyone who has one should have a tool change white point with.

    Awesome.

    Also though I've always gone the way of VBC, Minnis, and Wool-Rich for trousers - I've also been eyeing these two fabrics from Holland & Sherry:
    https://custom.luxire.com/products/holland-sherry-tweed-wool-flannel-grey
    https://custom.luxire.com/products/holland-sherry-tweed-wool-flannel-charcoal

    Though I'm aware of H&S's overall approval and favorable reputation, I've never given them a shot myself.

    Can anyone comment on either fabrics?

    I'm really tempted to try the 17 oz cream Flannel H&S has via Luxire

    Aren't you in LA? Does it ever get cold enough for 17 oz flannels?

    Yes, and probably not, in terms of actual necessity...but that's the beauty of central A/C. It's not unheard of for high 20s/low 30s in the winter, if far enough away from the water. I do travel for work to the northeast/midwest every so often, so perhaps that's how I justify it :-D
