    @LuxireStudio Is the Loro Piana Birdseye pretty similar to the Dugdale one above?

    Also, is that washed chambray shirt, the product of washing the indigo chambray shirt?

    10 weeks? Yikes! I just ordered a pair of pants last week, with no changes to existing pattern as well.
    I gave myself two full months with the hopes of receiving them before May 4th. Never had a pair of pants take longer than 5 weeks so we shall see what happens this time.

    @patliean1 @soaped I budget 2 months too, it's usually about right. Just put in for a cotton/linen canvas trouser that people seemed to like last summer, plus some casual shirts and a replacement pair of chinos.

    This is a question that I've asked before on here and directly to Luxire. But I never got a clear answer.

    I got my fit for pleat-less trousers pretty dialed down. What adjustments should one make to these trousers in order to account for single pleats and double pleats?

    Increase Half Hip Measurement?
    Increase Front Rise/Back Rise?
    Increase Thigh Measurement?
    Increase Knee Measurement?

    In the past when I submitted the same measurements for pleated trousers as pleat-less trousers, they would be way too tight. Unfortunately, I do not even wear those now.

    I’d just write a note saying ”adjust measurements for pleats” when placing the order. For me this has been a better approach than manually change the measurements.

    I placed this last order when they had a discount on certain pants (stretchable), which probably explains the increased production time.

    I guess I'll leave some comments on the fabrics. Both of the pants from my last order have some sort of stretch. Not sure I like the stretch but I really like the color of the green cord. The beige pair is OK, it has a sateen sheen to it which I hope goes away with wear. I'm probably going to give the cotton-canvas a try and order another pair of the cream twill chinos mentioned above.

    Hello,

    Do any of you have collar recommendations?

    For spread collars, I have tried NOBD 2 (Presto sale) and the Italian. I like the Italian collar, but I think I would prefer a collar with a slightly longer collar point length and with a tad less spread, if that makes any sense.

    For buttondown, I have tried the Broke and Bespoke and the Trad. I like them both for casual wear without a tie, but with a tie I find the spread to be too small. The collar point are quite far from the lapels, and I would like to try having a BD collar with the collar points quite close to them or even under. I could try the Kamakura, but I am not sure if the extra 1 cm spread is enough.

    I know that I could just design the collars myself and have a go at it, but have any of designed collars similar to what I am describing? I would greatly appreciate suggestions.

    Received my selvedge demon jeans the other day and wore them today. The fitnis great and quality so far exceeds my expectations! They are a bit stiff still, but that is expected. I’ll be breaking them in!

    After the FIFO change, on an average, orders are currently going into production within 10 days of receiving order.
    Many orders are being shipped within 2 weeks. Most within 4 weeks.

    The cycle is getting shorter at a good pace.
