    Jerry Seinfeld had this great bit about care instructions being the only kind of instructions people take seriously.

    Does anyone have experience with the white pique jersey? I'm interested to know the thickness and if it is suitable for a summer shirt? i.e. quite thin and breathable?

    Do people mind sharing their favourite button cuff configurations/specs? I find Luxire's 1 button cuff a bit uninteresting (it's too short), and I want to know what others have specified :)

    On my MTM shirts from another maker a few years ago, I used to get 2-button cuffs all the time, but when I started using Luxire I switched to 1-button, just to make it easier to button/unbutton. I was also not happy with the length of the 1-button cuff on my first order, so I asked them to make it a little longer and now it looks fine. I haven't changed the button configuration since then and have kept it the same on all my orders.

    I always toss my shirts in the dryer, with the exception of the ones that go to the cleaners for laundering and pressing -- and I'm pretty sure they tumble-dry them as well. They're shirts, for chrissakes. Life's short. If they wear out buy new ones.

    And maybe I'm lucky but I don't think I've ever retired a quality shirt due to wear. That includes MTM shirts that have been worn in regular rotation for 6 years.

    I hang dry all of my shirts. Like clapey said, all that lint you pull out of the dryer is little bits of fibers from your clothes. That's fine when it's sheets and towels and such, but I'm less OK with it when it's my good clothes. It's really not very difficult to hang dry them at all--I live in a tiny NY apartment and either just put them on hangars which I leave hanging from doorknobs for a couple of hours or hang them from the towel hooks in the bathroom. Only takes a few hours for them to dry.

    Honestly, schlepping them to and from the dry cleaners is more of a hassle.

    It is the 10 Oz Indigo Denim Chambray. The worn out look is after multiple wash processes. Yes, can be faded further. Can be ordered here.

    No serious dry cleaner would ever tumble dry your clothes.

    "They're shirts, for chrissakes. Life's short. If they wear out buy new ones."

    Not trying to be a dick but I can't get behind that kind of throwaway attitude. / End of derailing the thread.

    For those that have ordered fabrics from Brisbane Moss through Luxire, how was your experience? Is the quality worth the price and approximately how long did you have to wait?

    I've ordered the white twill beginning of June and hope to get my hands on them by August giving me at least a month to wear them before Labor day. It makes sense that brand fabrics take a little longer to procure and might not have been the best choice for a current season impulse buy. Has anybody already ordered Fall fabrics from Brisbane? I'm interested in these and consider ordering now to have them in time for F/W.

    I've yet to experience any durability issues with shirts. I do hang dry my cotton pants though.

    Clap - I can recommend the Brisbane Twill. See my comment above. Probably not winter weight, more Summer/Fall.

    If I could trouble you for a picture; I would love to see this fabric in natural lighting. I've been looking for some time now for a certain grey green or grey taupe trousering and this seems to be a close match.
