Yes. They belong to you.
Could you please detail what type of collar that is (fused, unfused) ? And maybe the dimensions ?
Ain't it tough to think of peacoats in summer?
I still get all OCBDs with unfused/unlined collars and cuffs, and I did the same on my last order for dress shirts with cutaway collars to be worn with ties, but they felt a tad flimsy. The below post is the one I used to help me decide to go with light lining, medium fusing on my last order. Anybody have any experience with this type of collar?
I am also a Man-Sized Collar Guy. If you have a high neckband you absolutely want to ask for a firm neckband. They can do that while leaving the rest of the collar soft.

To get around the issue, we did a set of internal experiments to determine what would work best, trying things inhouse and involving some customers in the tests........
^ I think it was for all collars. IME the oxford cloths are just fine unlined/unfused for BD collars.
Thank you, those look awesome.
Does anyone own the 14 oz dark indigo or the 13 oz dark indigo stretch? Would love to see better pictures of each before I pull the trigger on some new jeans.
Mind giving me the order number and what things you specified on those jeans? Like them a lot--very similar to what I'm looking for (simple, straightforward jeans basically).
Would it be inappropriate to post constructive feedback on the aesthetics/balance of a few of the designs posted by Luxire? I feel like some of the images should get Foofed to bring them to the next level of awesomeness.
Lovely peacoat. I want one like that
Which fabric was that?
I wonder if there is a way to get softer lining that's a bit more substantial with a bit more volume. I don't really want anything stiffer, just something with a bit more body to it.
Man, MTM makes you picky as all hell.
Haha, so true. I'm constantly making little tweaks here and there, always striving to make everything juuuust a little bit better
It kind of makes me feel like an ass when I say things like ".25 smaller through the bicep" or something because I know some dude cutting patterns for my shirt on the other side of the world is like "Oh ffs." and rolling his eyes.
