I don't think we have it, but a few similar ones are here.
Is it this one? Seems eerily similar.

I think this pattern is a bit smaller. If it were the size of the earlier photo I'd be on it in an instant.

@luxire

I need to replace my very first MTM shirt from you (Feb 2017), a blue uni-stripe OCBD. I got some corrosive substance on the front and it developed a few holes. It's now been relegated to under-sweater duty.

I see you have quite a few blue uni-stripe options; can you recommend your thickest/heaviest fabric?
This one is heavy and really nice

@luxire What's the weight (gsm/oz) on the White Dress Stripes on Blue Oxford? Wondering whether I should get it made unlined or with a light lining.

It is among our heavier oxfords, 5 Oz weight.

Not sure if this is actually in stock - if you go to the 'jackets' quick link on the top bar of the luxire page it shows that fabric as out of stock, but you can still click on it through that direct link.

@luxire Some lovely pleated trousers there.

I assume if we'd like to add pleats to an existing flat front block, the half hip is kept the same and the extra fabric added in by default? For example, for 3/4" main + 1/2" side pleat, 5" would be added on the front half hip?

We measure the half hip with the pleats folded. So technically, the half hip measurement does not increase. All the increase is under the folds.
For exact changes that will happen on your pattern, it may be a good idea to send us an email.

This one was mine! A fantastic textured canvas that breathes extremely well. A re-make for me in a slightly looser, more comfortable pattern!
Sounds very nice. Does it keep a nice crease too?

I use it as a casual flat front trouser that is machine washed (I ordered it unhemmed). I think it holds a crease as well as any other casual cotton slightly textured trouser, but I tend to find almost all cottons hold crease well when strongly ironed (in my opinion).

It is a great lighter shade of green/olive but not too light. Works great with gray/blue/light blue/pink/white/navy shirts and polos. I often wear mine rolled up with loafers/boat shoes.

It feels like an odd fabric initially, but breathes very well and handles stains/washing/abuse well.
