    I have a few pairs of the 9oz, and purchased them a few years ago during a Luxire sale.

    Honestly, I wasn't expecting much but they have been worn a lot including cycling to work, and I was just reflecting the other day that I can see no visible pilling, sheen or bald spots. They hold a crease as well as can be expected from light flannel.

    They are also versatile - sure, not what you would normally think of as 9oz 'warm weather' trousers, but wearable year round in London.

    So I would certainly buy them again, and it's made me view VBC more positively as well.

    I don't want to come here to spread negativity, as I love Luxire and completely admire what they do. I have all my shirts and trousers made by them, and as a result have almost completely given up on RTW.

    However, I've been having trial pieces made in order to refine my measurements. The latest one has taken nine weeks so far, and I've yet to hear anything about it. It's a trial shirt and trousers. Moreover, the last few orders I've placed have taken equally as long or longer. I understand that these things take time and I'm perfectly willing to wait for quality. That being said, Luxire's website still makes the claim that most orders are shipped within two to three weeks. I don't think I've ever received an order as quickly as they claim, and I've placed a lot of them, dating back to 2013.

    Is it not about time that Luxire update that claim, or better still, work towards improving their lead time? The quality and value of what they do is so exceptional, the only thing holding them back to my mind is the time one has to wait.

    Unless an organisation is exceptional you can have two of these three things:

    Cost
    Quality
    Time

    Send them an email, I've had responses within 1-2 business days.

    I've only had trousers made by them over the past few years and Luxire typically ships them out about 1 month after the initial order, so 9 weeks does seem a bit too long.

    2-3 weeks is indeed the usual. I've had 5-6 during periods with many orders and sometimes under 1 week during summer months.

    Mailing them is your best bet. Stuff sometimes end up in the wrong pile :)

    My recent order (fresco cotton pants, modification of existing pattern) took almost ten weeks to complete, but I have also experienced pants/shirt orders completed in two weeks, seems a pretty random thing. I have a hypothesis, though (based on small sample of orders) that orders with attached pictures (for replicating a detail etc.) take significantly longer than the orders with just notes.

    Regarding fresco cotton – I ordered the rust brown and the color representation on Luxire website is pretty correct. It is rather dark and warm brown, like dark mahogany, very versatile. It lightweight, but not super-lightweight (I guess about 200-220 gsm). I am not posting the pictures because I am unable to get the accurate color representation on my camera, and I don’t want to confuse anybody.

    I also received OCBD in Warzone Plus White Oxford, and, contrary to some comments on the website, it is super-heavy fabric (my shirt weights about 12 oz., and I am pretty small guy, wearing 36R suits). For the comparison, my Sky Blue Oxford shirt, which is also a heavy fabric, weights 10.5 oz. I know Luxire changes and updates their “flagship” fabrics, so it may be the case. But I am by no means disappointed, in fact, this one is fantastic and makes great addition to Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

    We recently made a Guayabera shirt in a Dugdale wool fabric. We did this for the first time. Some images below.
