    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.

    Another of the trial shoes. Keep getting better in our eyes.

    Sounds great! If I order it in August, will it be ready around October?

    Thank you for your quick reply. Haha, of course! There's no deadline for this, so plenty of time to focus on the details. I'm confident you'd be able to recreate this, after seeing the quality of my first Luxire jacket. I'm sure you'd be able to make it part of a regular lineup, like that shirt jacket, as it is a coveted jacket on SF.

    I suppose proper product photography would really benefit you. It'll be a bit of an investment to get the setup right, but I think it's worth it for an internet business. You should take a look at Malford of London's product photography. As far as I know, it's a one man business, but his pictures are amazing. This is good natured advice, and I certainly have no intention of insulting your current photographer!

    Thank you M. Those are very kind words.

    Is the Arny's jacket also an orphan now, with no one making or owning it?

    Photography: Completely agree. We are doing it in steps. Good photography will include equipment, space, lighting, props and photographer.

    We recently invested in a decent camera and also setup a tiny room for the task. What we do lack is a dedicated professional photographer and your comment will hopefully hasten the search.

    Arnys has been acquired by LVMH and is now named Berluti, and I believe most original people have left or are retired. I'm sure they still make quality goods, and they do have some sort of Forestiere in their lineup. Either way, it would be way out of my price range, and the original Arnys jackets are almost impossible to find second hand. Besides,you allow me to use my own measurements and pick a fabric, which is pretty unique when it comes to online MTM!

    Good luck with sorting out the photography!

    Would you be able to duplicate the quilted lining?

    Another pair of shoes: Tan leather, antique finish, after a few weeks of wear.

    looks good, just needs a sleeker last, and the welt edges needs to not protrude as much.

    Out of curiosity, do you have access to specialized/obscure (I don't know what the right word would be) hardware?
