    Should be live in March, may be even end of this month. Will hopefully give freedom from notes, without taking away your right to individuality.

    Navy is in the works, should be ready in 3-4 weeks. A charcoal grey in our 30 Oz cloth will be ready next week. That is something substantial.

    I just ordered my first Luxire shirt based off a lot of the advice and reviews in this forum. Because I didn't know how well it would fit I paid $35 for a "fitting trial shirt".

    One thing that I have found that I didn't like was the collar. Below I have a few photos of the shirt against an ETON shirt that I own. The collar doesn't feel as firm as other shirts that I have owned. Is this because I ordered an unfused collar? The picture below shows how easy it is for me to fold the fabric while the ETON stays stiff.

    Furthermore, the picture below shows the ETON collar very flat while the edge of the Luxire shirt has little "dimples". Ultimately my goal is to have a collar like my ETON shirt. I am thinking this must mean that I should go with a fused collar. Any help would be appreciated!

    It has nothing to do with fused vs. unfused, rather it's an interlining weight issue. I have dozens of bespoke shirts with unfused collars and none of them bend and wrinkle like the one in your picture. I've tried to fix the issue in my currently pending order, by sending an existing shirt and requesting interlining of a similar weight.

    Fused interlining vs canvas interlining vs no interlining

    When I want a soft but firm collar, I ask for a canvas interlining and if I want it firm then I use the default fused collar.

    Coat looks awesome, mind telling us the price?

    Just received a pair of pants and a shirt yesterday. 11 days from placing order to being on my doorstep. Decided to branch out on my pant colors a bit and got the maroon twill and holy shit is this color awesome. Liked the swatch but wasn't completely sold, glad I pulled the trigger though as I love the pants even more than the swatch. Will be a great pair to spice up my grey and navy pant collection.

    When I ordered my corduroy sportcoat (which is a $150 fabric for pants) I paid $400. This was back in the fall. I was also quoted $650 for a full suit in dugdale new fine worsted (which is $180 for pants).
    I'm unfortunately still waiting back on a response from Luxire about my questions for my next order (ordering a navy suit to get married in), and it's been three weeks (including a follow-up email I sent)...

    Have you ordered shirts in the same measurements as previously only different fabric?

    About going without your favourite jacket for 2 months while they make the new one - I think you can ask to have your original jacket returned while they make the new one. Might be out of your fave jacket a month or so I guess?

    The thing to do would be to order a shirt as well and have the jacket-to-be-copied shipped back with the shirt.
