This is the II:
First pair of trousers I have ordered from Luxire - 14 oz flannel from Hardy Minnis (0300, I believe). They turned out very nice, I must say - fit is spot on with the measurements I sent in.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Fish-tail bac and brace buttons:
How did you guys send your measurements for pants? I can probably send a well fitting pant to them like I did my shirt but might be costly.
Did you guys just measure a well fitting pant and send in your measurements?
I sent a pair of pants in and gave a few adjustments over email...not to the measurements, just to the details like belt loops, cuffs, etc. I had them copy the measurements of the pants exactly. Should have the new pair here on Monday!
I really like that collar. I'llbe ordering a couple of those after I receive my first shirt and make sure every thing is dialed in.
When ordering that collar, how to specify? Just "the II"? Thanks.
NOBD 2 collar. Or collar from Order #3559
I placed an order for a shirt with that collar in mind, I hope it turns out like that.
I just took measurements from a pair of MTM trousers and entered those, with a few minor adjustments. I got side-adjusters so I'm hoping that will give me a little leeway with the waist measurement. Theresa said it would ship by this week, so I'm hoping they arrive by the end of the week or early next week. I'm hoping Luxire adds a more affordable all-wool grey flannel soon, so I can put in my next order asap.
I just looked back and saw that they did add a Dugdale flannel for 200, but I agree that 9 oz. seems way too light for a fall/winter flannel.
Our only option may be HY or Epaulet.
Just checked the tracking for my order and saw that it changed from expected delivery of Monday (today) to Wednesday
You might be right, but I'm still holding out hope they'll be able to source something. Didn't they say they reached out to VBC about their flannel? I wonder if anything will come of that. Either way, if I'm happy with my first pair, which I'm sure I will be, I'd probably go with the wool-poly blend from Luxire than deal with the hassle of alterations. Ammanati posted a picture of his trousers made with the blend a while back and they looked great. We'll see.
That's the worst.
Yeah, rather than wait to hear back about whether they can get VBC flannel (or pay $200 for 9oz flannel, or $300 for minnis) I broke down and ordered a pair of the $100 wool blend, since cold weather is a'comin here in the upper midwest (42 degrees this morning).
Separate names with a comma.
