    It is the blue-grey 100% cotton material for 69.00 dollars. I wanted to error on the side of cheap for my first try.

    Don't worry will last a nuclear war the way it's going. Though it's pretty heavy best for winter.

    I think this question was missed; interested to know the answer as I would like to order some more conservative shirts (white and blue) with a similiar collar.
    P.S.

    A quick of review of my luxire Light Tan Cotton Linen Pants (http://luxire.com/collections/pants/products/light-tan-cotton-linen-pant). I don't know anything about tailoring so I'll be using layman's terms...

    I sent Luxire a recent pair of tailored pants to copy. The turnaround was roughly 3 weeks from the time they received the pants to the time I got both pairs back. Both pairs arrived back in good condition.

    The fit is spot on - I didn't take a comparison shot but they were copied exactly.

    The Luxire pants include a bunch of features that I hadn't had on pants before, including an extra fabric closure across the top of the pants (you can see it in the pics Luxire themselves posted of my pants above), a curved waistband and working cuffs . I wasn't advised that these would be included in the pants, and perhaps it would've been better to be asked whether I wanted them (the pair of pants I said in had none of these features).

    Still, I personally like them all - you can't really complain about "extras" that make the tailoring all that more special and intricate. I could see some people not liking the curved waistband, though. So perhaps a page that lists and describes these "standard" features that a pair of pants will come with would be good so that people know what they're getting into. I really can't see too many people complaining though, they're all good things IMO.

    This is along with all the standard features one would expect in terms of pockets, split waistband etc.

    The constructions seems very very sturdy. On par and exceeding pants I have owned from Epaulet, and my tailored pair that I send in. I agree that the internal lining used for pockets could be a bit smoother, especially for wool suit pants, but for the fabric I chose the rough and ready fabric they have used it actually pretty perfect.

    I really can't fault a thing in terms of features or construction - these things seem to have it all. They even included a very appropriate interior lining fabric which works nicely with the casual feel of the pants.

    See the pictures Luxire posted above for shots of the interior.

    The fabric itself is reasonably heavy - was hoping it'd be a bit lighter but I will certainly get a lot of wear out of it. I see it as being perfect for sunny spring days and the like.

    Possibly the one small negative I can think of is the buttons - they seem a little plastic-y. I could be wrong, though. Hardly an issue on suit pants where only two buttons are seen, though. Perhaps an optional upgrade to horn buttons could be included on the new website?

    There was a small misunderstanding about the pleats, but Luxire offered to correct it gratis.

    I wore them straight out of the box after a bit of a hang, they could really do with a press to get a nice crease going. It remains to be seen how well they hold a crease - I think they'll probably need regular pressing but what else would you expect with a linen/cotton blend.

    Bear in mind that they are unpressed/ironed, straight out of the box and then worn for a day in the pictures below.

    In conclusion, I can't recommend them highly enough. To save a lot of the hassle of tweaking measurements, I recommend sucking it up and just sending them a pair of well fitting or tailored pants if you have any - you won't be disappointed with the result.

    And without further ado, some pictures. Sorry about the "background" - was trying to make the most of the sun in my backyard.

    I've seen some sport coats being mentioned here in the thread. Don't see any options for ordering one on the website, though?

    The option is not available on the website currently, need to be done by email. You can Contact Us to get started.

    An automated "e-commerce" option is certainly preferable, we need to do some background exercise to enable that.

    I have a couple questions regarding jackets:

    - What would the pricing be like for a full suit made from, say, one of the linen fabrics that is currently priced at $150 for a pair of trousers? For just a jacket?
    - You have mentioned in earlier posts that jackets would be made completely unstructured with no canvassing or using only multiple layers of fabric for structure where necessary. Does this mean that you currently only have the capability to make unstructured jackets with no canvassing? Certainly I would want a linen jacket to be very unstructured but I would kind of like some light canvassing in the upper chest and lapels for a nice roll.

    Obviously the jacket offerings must be a work in progress, I'm just curious about the current capabilities as I plan my spring/summer acquisitions.

    A jacket using the linen fabric would cost $300

    We will be glad to make structured jackets too, complete with layered horse-hair canvassing, shoulder pads, lined with silk/Bemberg and hand-made detailing.
