    Thank you BrandonJG! It really was as simple as that? I'm going to do the same going forward.

    If anyone has any advice on the monogram question, would be keen to heart your experiences.

    Does that mean that there would be custom made shirts in some random, but nice, set of fabrics , may be 3 for $100?

    Worth giving a thought. Thank you for the idea.

    We are working with a British mill to produce the cloth using boiled wool and a small Italian process house to do the processing. We should have something soon. Camel and racing green are currently in production.

    I think totally random would be too much of a crap shoot for most people. If you got 3 heavy flannels and lived in the tropics you might not be happy.

    If you just gave a title to each fabric or something, that would be ideal. No need to create a new page or picture or anything online, so it would save you the work, but customers would still have a rough idea of what to expect. Make these fabrics $35-50 each or thereabouts, depending on Initial price or something.

    Does Luxire have a heavy pant fabric that would match this shade from Left Field?

    Our jacket maker setting the collar by hand. Our suit jackets are now made almost entirely by hand with only a few straight seams made using a machine.

    Thanks for the picture Luxire. Would you be able to let us know a bit more about and share a few more images of the coat making process? For instance, construction of the interfacing and shoulder, and quality of the button holes? How about some more detailed shots of how the finished collar sits, shoulder and sleeve hang?

    Additionally, what options are there for the coat making process? For instance, is the suit partially finished, sent to us for a try on, images taken, and then the coat returned to Luxire for final alterations and finishing of button holes? Is a polyester fused throw away mock up of the jacket to assess fit and cut prior to constructing the final garment possible?

    I'm sure many of us who enjoy the old world constructed shirts and trousers would love to see more sports jackets and suits from you!

    Yes, will add some more images next week and beyond.

    Sending a partially finished jacket for trial is optional for additional $100 per cycle, including 2-way shipping. Some kind of trial mock is an option too.

    We too are fascinated by the process of making jackets. Our offering is still in its infancy. We will standardize the process and add them as a product on our site soon.

    That's great! Let me know when it becomes available and I'll be the first to place an order.

    You're absolutely correct. Thanks for your response, althanis. Let me try to provide some more details:

    Pink dress shirt recommendations

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a sub-$100 pink dress shirt? I already purchased the pale pink oxford, but am finding oxford a little too casual for business wear (would anybody disagree with this assessment)? My office dress code is business casual, but many people wear a suit and tie. I searched for pink shirts on the Luxire website, and there are just so many options! Has anybody ordered any of the pink fabrics and had a good experience that they would recommend?

    Thanks again!

    A couple of pages back, someone posted a photo of a very nice pink striped shirt. Maybe the stripes are a little out of CBD, but it might fit your taste!

    Indigo Canvas Pants - Part canvas, part Oxford, part Chambray

    My personal favorite among the casual pants fabrics we have. Simply amazing.
