    If you are in a cooler climate the plain white oxford cloth is worth a look at, nice material, no where near as wrinkly as the LFW and comparatively cheap.

    Anybody has any experience with the "duck canvas" vs the "Brisbane Moss Canvas"? They both seem to about the same weight - are these basically the same kind of fabric? Any differences?

    Thanks.

    Chocolate duck canvas trousers, single pleated, extended waistband. They're very comfortable for duck canvas, and the weave is open, so they don't wear too hot. The trousers are very well made and fit perfectly. I'm thinking about increasing the front rise from 11.5" to 12" or even 12.5" for my next order. I forgot to specify side adjusters, and Luxire generously offered to send them with my next order!

    What exactly is linen chambray? I assume it's just linen that is woven to look like chambray because I always thought chambray was a cotton fabric?

    from what I understand chambray is simply an end on end weave fabric with a certain textile finishing.

    They're both plain woven with a white warp and dyed weft but end on end is typically finer. Though not entirely accurate, it's easy to think of chambray as like denim but in a plain weave while most fabrics described as end on end are much like poplin or cotton broadcloth but with the white and color warp and weft.

    Just wondered what the correct terminology is to see if I can get a slightly different collar point on my next Luxire shirt. I don't mind the length of the collar point, but would like it under my jacket. Would this mean increasing the spread a bit or just the length? (In future I think I'm also going to experiment a bit with wider spreads like English or cutaways).

    Also I've been pretty happy with my Luxire shirt except some of this front wrinkling, although it's already fairly snug around my waist. I saw previously about some people specifying the front and rear waist measurements separately to reduce the amount of billow/excess fabric in the back of the shirt. Any recommendations for the next round?

    Shirt in blue university stripe oxford. Tracking updated suggests that I'll get it on Monday.

    Brisbane is more refined and a little lighter than duck canvas.
