Word is that wool prices have dropped to 2016 levels due in part to the trade war. Anybody want to take a bet on whether mills will lower prices in the future?

Though prices not there yet, some mills may revise prices next season.

As anybody in business can explain, cost increase is a constant. Linear increase is usually absorbed by businesses, till the point of it being manageable. When market factors bring in an exponential change in costs, they need to be passed on to the buyer. But, the change in price usually takes effect over some time.

If market conditions turn favorable, the change is used to soften the blow of the constant linear increase.
Savings, if small, are not enough to decrease pricess across board. They are then used for offering volume discounts and encouraging growth.

Here, another factor is the competition from wool mills in China. That may encourage some of the European fabric sellers to revise prices.

There a lot of articles on post-Brexit GBP impact on cross-border trade, to understand how things often work.

@luxire What's the turnaround time for sending trousers in for replication and getting them back? I only have one good pair of suit trousers at the moment, so I wouldn't want to be without them for too long.

Can someone please give me advice on how I can improve the collar fit of my shirt? It's the last thing I am struggling with.

The shirt is a Semi Spread collar with default measurements and it unfortunately does not fit in my jacket properly (there is a gap between the collar and the jacket).

A wider spread will look less bad (you want the collar points to reach the jacket lapels) but the issue is that the jacket does not fit.

Trying to order a Ivory colored pair of test trousers and it keeps changing it to cream in my cart. Anyone else notice this?

can you add space to just the 'front' knee measurement in the pattern? I have some tightness when I flex at the front of the knee, but pletny of the space in the back.

or should I add space to the calf?

Your jacket is at least one size to small, shirt collar is fine, unless you're unhappy with the spread of the collar points or something, but that's just a styling point.

Can anyone here comment on some of the button options? I've gotten mostly the default MOP buttons but am looking for something a bit larger and thinner for my shirts. Any suggestions?

I have trousers (not from Luxire in this case) where the front panel is bigger than the back panel so I'm sure it's possible.
I guess it depends on where the tightness is. Pants tend to ride up when you sit down, causing tight trousers to stick to the calf and making the whole lower leg feel tight.

Will recommend that you send images to our email so that we can understand the issue better and make changes accordingly.
