Doc, I am disappoint. There's not a single leery item in the bunch.
I'm still replacing worn-out but essential stuff at the moment.
The time will come...
NM. Answered my own question and realized if you click on your order number you can see the fedex tracking number.
Yes, you can pretty much request anything that you want.
Luxire, regarding your selvedge denim fabrics, how much stretch is to expect from them?
Am I save to assume the inseam will shrink approximately 1/2 inch on the initial wash, while the waist will stretch out 1 inch and thighs and knees 1/8 to 1/4 inch each?
Well first shirt came in today. Way too tight all over. I love the button/button hole combo they just seem to fit right. Also the collar turned out right.
-way to tight in the arm hole openings its pulling the whole shirt.
-A bit too tight on the sleeves width, might need another 1/4" in sleeve length too
-needs to be let out in the waste, and I am not sure If I got a measurement mixed up or if something was messed up on there end but the hips need to be let out like 4", they are slimmer than the waste.
-The one that I don't really know how to fix is the back of the shirt I seem to have a C shape pull going from shoulder to shoulder running along the yoke about an inch back of the collar (at the center) and ending at the front of the shoulders. I tried showing it in pic 3 but its a but tricky.
finally shirt is about 2-3" too long imo.
What do you guys think?
imo, front/back chest too tight. Why don't you xref the measurements you provided vs. the actual shirt? Take a seat. If your buttons are gaping, then "WAIST" D) is too tight.
its funny they dont really gape at the waste when I sit but its hard to tell because I can't close the bottom button (or two if they are over a pair of jeans)
question? Where do I find the measurements I gave them? I was looking if I had a profile or something on the site but I can seem to find it.
I just got a denim jacket and a pair of grey flannel pants. Pleased with the jacket. Pants have to go back (long drawn out story that I won't get into). I just wanted to mention to anyone thinking of ordering the 99.99 flannel pants. They are incredibly thick. Think of material used for an overcoat. These pants are thicker than all of the other tweed, donegal, wool and other winter weight pants I own. This is great for some, not so great for others.
Luxire, do you have access to Porter and Harding 'Thornproof' tweeds?
Do they have access to tweed other than dugdale?
Nobody has, I guess? I hate to be the guy who bumps his own post like this, but final sale is final sale.
have you looked at their size chart? presumably you can compare these to whatever shirts you have that fit the way you like. the size measurements look like pretty full-fitting shirts, at least for me.
Wow, can't believe I missed that size chart. I'd agree, those are some pretty large numbers. Oh well.
Just got my latest order. The 16 ounce cavalry twill fabrics make up into a very nice pair of trousers. I'll try to post pictures at some point when I get them back from being pressed. Looking forward to trying the new flannels as well.
