    The cotton lines will be overdyed for now. So, have ordered the white with navy stripes in 100% cotton.

    If the cotton-linen are well received, we will add a few patterns next season. Seems to have been liked so far.

    Will go with the light blue, light grey and one of burnt orange/wine, depending on how the dips look.

    It is the Turner one piece hidden button down collar. I like it but it is a little to tall for me. On my next order I will get the same collar but shorter.

    I sent in a shirt to be replicated with some adjustments as well as a picture of how I wanted the hem to be shaped. I have not worn the shirt for long periods of time tucked in but just wearing tucked in around the house it stays tucked just fine. I wanted this to be a versatile shirt that I can wear tucked, untucked, and with or without a tie. I will be making a post soon with more details as well as measurements.

    Which plain white fabric would you guys recommend for a dress shirt? Should be relatively airy but not be transparent or wrinkle too easily.

    I am awaiting the delivery of two shirts with an updated collar band today. I'm sure Luxire followed the changes and I'm thrilled to get my perfect collar.

    Sounds great. Please post pictures and details on the changes you made to the collar when you get a chance.

    I have both the Alumo White Poplin and White Broadcloth, and I favor the broadcloth.

    That is it. I am getting those pants. I really like the width of the waistband, although I am probably going to do a pair with single button closing instead.

    Do you mind giving the order-# by the way?

    Does anyone have the problem where their placket near the top 2 buttons sort of collapses when worn? To mitigate this problem, when I take my shirts out of the washer to dry on the hanger I button them up complete, but it still happens sometimes.

    Is there a way of maybe having the placket reinforced at the top to stand better? Is this even a thing for other people?

    In which fabric you would like it? We do have the knitted navy rib. Making is easy.

    Speaking of bomber jacket, what would be the likely hood of one like this is either navy or a tan ?

    I had one, but sold it because the collar just did not sit right for me. I think nit would be a great jacket, just with a smaller collar that does not go up so high.

    Speaking of jackets, how about an Arnys Forestiere in either cotton, cotton/linen or corduroy? Arnys is quite a legendary brand, so maybe we can get more people on board for it? It would certainly make for a great fall jacket, depending on material/lining.

    speaking of clothing, we can make anything.
    We do have ribs in a few colors and getting more made is easy. The shell fabric, if chosen from our collection/sellers we work with, the jacket can be made as desired.

    If Corduroy / cotton, this is an easy project in terms of material sourcing. Making it will be fun too.
