@luxire The wool rich camel is sold out. The other colors are the washable wool?
Yes, they are all washable.
We will be restocking the camel in fall 2021

Have the prewashing routines changed since january 2020? Last time I ordered jeans around that time they shrank to be almost unwearable.

All denim/jeans are now pre-washed, unless requested otherwise.

Serving wannabe raw jeans enthusiasts was becoming a pain.
Seasoned guys know what to expect from raw jeans.

Unfortunately, I'm a wannabe seasoned guy.

I did ask for pre-wash at the time, though, which prompted my original question.
Please send us an email. We can check your order and let you know.

@luxire Your denim jackets. How are they ordered? (Sizing) Are they preset sizes or do I need to figure out my sizing and send it to luxire?

I could use some advice re: linen suiting. I would like one in either a navy or tobacco brown. I will wear it in the depths of the midwestern American summer. This will be my first linen suit so I am not sure what weight to get and whether the fabrics enumerated below are viable options.

1) Navy Irish Linen

@luxire can you tell me what weight this is and whether you think it would make for a good suit?

2) Navy Linen Cotton Canvas

Will this be breathable enough for a suit that will be worn in the 90s and up? I know 11oz isn’t too heavy for linen but does the cotton canvas aspect make this too heavy for hot weather? Will this be too scratchy if made into an unlined suit?

3) Dugdale Tobacco Linen

Is 9oz heavy enough? As I understand it, the lighter the linen the more prone to wrinkles. Since this is the less staid of the two color options, do I run the risk of highlighting the non-conservative business dress-ness of the suit by making it in a lighter weight?

Finally, I know I want it partially unlined. Will telling @luxire I want it buggy lined suffice for directions or should I be more specific? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I really like the Dugdale 9oz - yes it is heavy enough, but it definitely wouldn't be anywhere close to conservative business dress. It is heavy enough to drape while performing well in my hot Australian summers

Always be specific as Luxire deals with lots of custom orders so assuming that there is just one definition for "buggy lined" (just as an example) is probably leaving yourself open to miscommunication and/or disappointment.
The cotton-canvas cloth is not scratchy, but I also wouldn't call it especially breathable or light. I have a pair of pants in it and would think a suit in it would be more Spring appropriate than 90-100 degree Summer....everyone's heat tolerance varies, though!
Just to your last point, linen suits are unlikely to be thought of as "conservative dress" in many places, no matter what the color of the suit is. Obviously, darker and more traditional colors like navy and grey would be MORE conservative, but linen is distinctly different than wool and the linen-cotton canvas has significant texture that will denote it as not particularly conservative (even though it doesn't wrinkly anything like plain linen).

Though we have standard sizes, best to do custom measurements to get the perfect fit.
