    @matt22616 I just received my chambray one piece collar shirt ;) Please find a few photos below. I will post more (including a photo of buttoned collar and a tie) on my blog possibly this evening together with some description and my opinion on the wear. If anyone has doubts the fabric is amazing. Quite light, breathable and very soft - highly recommended.

    Well, I think its very rough and feels a lot like unwashed raw denim. The weight and texture makes it more of a fall/winter pant for me. It has a nice drape though, because of the weight.

    Nah, you guys seem to be so deeply involved already that I wouldn't want to put a monkey wrench in anywhere.

    Nice one piece but tell luxire to dial down on the shirring.

    Also specified that link and received a more aggressive shirring. Fine on back but shoulders on the verge of looking feminine.

    Do you guys construct pants with full-lining, half-lining or no-lining?

    Lining is simply to reduce the wool from causing an itch to the skin and prolonging the wool from excessive friction right?

    Why do people ask for shirring?

    As for lining, as far as I know it's mostly needed in the thighs down to the knees. You're pretty much spot on as to the use of it.

    It can also be useful for linen trousers which are much more see-through.

    I have some linen pants that are unlined, but I do 1/2 lined to the knee for my wool pants.

    I have some that are lined to the knee and others (mostly lighter summer wools) that I've gotten unlined.

    Great pictures. Which chambray fabric did you choose and are the pants Luxire as well? When I get my first pair from Luxire I will ask for a loop to secure the belt buckle as I have on two pairs of HY trousers, but unfortunately not on my pair of Jack Donnelly khakis. It is a nice feature that keeps the belt in the middle of the waistband and prevents it from riding up.

    Here is my most recent shirred shirt from luxire. I had complained about the aggressive shirring that rendered some of my shirts unwearable

    I've found one of the advantages of the heavier fresco, in addition to the weight resulting in a nice drape, is a fair bit of wrinkle-resistance. How badly/quickly do the dugdale worsteds wrinkle during the day? Thanks
