Just measured and realized that the inseam is nearly 5 cm shorter than it is supposed to be in my pattern. Easy fix but still weird!

Is there anyone who has pants in this fabric?


How is it? Am looking for a pair of moleskin and ideally in a dark-ish green...appreciate any recommendations.

I was considering this, but take a look at the colour chart (it's on one of the Brisbane moleskins) and you'll see it's not really green.

The Luxire regular green moleskin isn't going to be restocked either (I emailed this week to ask).

While I'm thinking about it, it seems like a lot of things are currently sold out and I had a few suggestions for new fabrics. It would be good to know if others are interested so we might recommend to @luxire

My thoughts
1. More moleskin (ideally dark green / dark olive, cream/off-white, any others?)
2. More needlecord shirting (Brisbane moss is nice but $150 for a shirt is pushing it for me): navy, dark green, terracotta are all good options
3. Washable (70/30) mid-grey flannel

Cheaper than dugdale cavalry twill or covert twill or whipcord.

For me it’d be darker green and dark brown.

There are very few suppliers for moleskin around. Our other source has dried up. We tried getting these made but no success so far.
That leaves us with Brisbane Moss as the best priced and best quality option. We are on it though.

Needlecords are in the works. Found some sources, working on them.

Any update on the VBC Cavalry Twills?

Anyone having difficulty accessing their old orders under the Account section? The pages just don't load for me, been a couple days now.

Just received my pressed Luxire Dugdale Fine Worsted Charcoal Plain suit from the March 2008 Jacket promotion and send the following to Luxire for feedback as we continue nailing down fit (some may remember my Luxire Light Navy Fresco from a few months back that I’m continuing to work with Luxire on). Natural shoulders, 3/2 roll notch lapel, full canvass upgrade

I welcome any feedback.

Pants:

Full suit:

I feel like there’s a bit of a collar gap in the back, but my wife continues to tell me I’m crazy.

The jacket looks to fit well in the shoulders, upper chest, and back. Sleeves look good. I don’t see a collar gap in these photos but you should feel that the collar hugs the back of your neck. I would suggest that you lower the buttoning point and consider lengthening the jacket slightly. Your shouldn’t be able to see your tie below the jacket button this easily.

Trousers: not a tailor so I’m not sure what is going on exactly but the rear could use some work. The back rise could be shortened at bit at the waist to reduce the excess material below the waistband. But I think there is more to it than that.

Hope this is helpful.
