@luxire I have been bragging recently in the respective thread about the fabrics I bought in light of an upcoming trip to Mumbai, with a view of having some garments stitched there. well, it seems that the trip is not happening, so I am exploring other options. hence, the question - do you do CMT? thank you!

Sounds good. What option did you go for (machine-made, half canvas, full canvas, handmade)? Do you have some pics?
I ordered it eons ago. The delay in production was my own doing, but I am pretty sure I did machine half-canvas, going for the least expensive option for my first suit. I suspect I will try full canvas for future purchases.

I will try and remember some pictures next time I wear it.

I find the Brisbane Moss twills to be soft, noticeably more than other twills/chinos. They are great pants. I can't imagine cotton being much softer, particularly after a couple wears/washes, unless it is flannel or brushed.
Looks very nice, thank you

@luxire Can you source a cloth like this for pants? This is a swatch from Harrison’s but it is about 5 years old. I tried searching online using the swatch number in this photo but couldn’t find anything.

Yesterday I received confirmation from Luxire that a package has been shipped by FedEx.

Today I received an SMS from FedEx telling me to send proof of the item's value (PayPal invoice). This might be problematic, considering that Luxire usually specify a value of 10 USD per item and not what I actually paid. I sent Luxire an e-mail and will see what they answer, but do any of you have similar experiences?

Furthermore, this is the first time Luxire uses FedEx and not DHL for my orders. From searching in this thread, it seems like it is possible to choose. Can any of you confirm? If so I will definitely specify DHL on future orders.

Not the best photos, but the first is a suit Luxire made for me in the linen-cotton canvas, and the second is an unstructured jacket they made in the heavyweight vintage linen.

Very nice. Looks like the structured piece is a bit more successful in holding its shape?
Yes, although I am also pleased with the cut and fit of the unstructured piece. In the photos above the suit had been worn all day, whereas the jacket was fresh on from being rolled up in a bag

@luxire
you have a very tight standard knee-lining fabric in pants, this lining is good for fall or spring, but not for summer.
In the last order I requested a thinner and breathable lining, I was told that there are no other linings, only a standard tight fabric.
Can you buy another kind of fabric lining for pants from light summer fabrics?
In my trousers of other manufacturers, everywhere is thinner and not like your tight knee-lining fabric.

Luxire has several lining options including bemberg, which generally is considered to be the best. Request bemberg with your next order.
