    My turn around times
    My turn around times have been around a month. You can add more time for special/non standard requests, if you send in an item for replication, if you fabric choice is not common stock...

    Hang tight

    This has likely been answered but search function isn't too helpful on this. Do you guys do lining on your chinos? I'm about to order the Navy Twill Chino primarily for business casual environment and wanted to see what you guys do.

    I wouldn't use lining on a pair of chinos. They are casual pants, on par with jeans imho. I would use lining for suit pants or odd dress pants (flannel, tweed et c) only.

    You'd be surprised. Luxire added a lightweight lining to my white cotton twill pants, which adds opacity and makes them a little cooler to wear on warm days.

    I just ordered a pair of trousers in a white twill and asked luxire to use their judgement and line it to the knee if the fabric will be see through.

    Fwiw, almost all of my pants unlined: fresco, flannels, linen, gabardine. I'd probably get pants lined for a cool weather, plain worsted suit.

    I'm surprised CA finds the lining makes them cooler.

    My Luxire shoes have shipped today, after about 7 or 8 months from when the order was originally placed. Here's hoping they turn out OK! I'm not really expecting them to be perfect, and Luxire did say these were pretty much a first iteration, so I'll probably have to provide comments and have them remade or fixed. But it is exciting to finally try them on soon!

    All my dress (wool based) and linen trousers are lined; here in hot, humid Florida it helps prevent sweating through the front. And, even if you're just (ahem) moist, the bare trouser fabric will tend to stick/cling to your legs and not drape. Lining helps or solves all of that.

    Hmmm, being where I am and a person who sweats easily (ugh) and has a lot of experience trying to beat it, I haven't ever thought the lining makes them cooler. I'd be interested in more insight...

    Is it possible for you to wash moleskin in the same way so that it has a faded/distressed look? Have a project in mind.
