    I'll post pics later on. The material is medium to light. Like a chino material. Pattern is more subtle than what it looks like online. I just tried them on...pretty good fit. Some minor tweaking at best but that had to do with my measurement set. Daks are really cool. Perfect waist. They definitely have a tailored look when I have them on. Nice. I had cuffs done...they do working cuffs(?) on pants...interesting...never seen that before. Some tweaks i can think of: increase leg opening somewhat for cuffs and maybe increase thighs slightly to accommodate the perm stitch crease a little better. Otherwise.....I need to wear them for a day at work to really know but first impressions are really good. I will measure them this weekend to see how close they got in reality.

    Great, can you provide some construction/fabric details or pictures at all? Any word on the technical natures of the fillings and fabrics? Cant wait to order.

    Not being an expert on quilted jacked fillings: can you describe the practical differences between them, and perhaps compare them in terms of warmth?

    A bit difficult to tell from these pictures but looks like you got the fit down quite nicely.

    Chest might be a bit tight, agree on the armhole measurement as well, but why add to shoulders? I think they look alright, but then again I'm no expert.

    I might add to general shirt length as well, as the shirt might look a bit shirt when tucked, but that's easier for you to decide on.

    These are the ones we currently have. Would have loved to have one in olive green, but could not find.
    There can be many permutations and combinations.

    I think it would be best if you can send image of what you have in mind. We can then suggest options.

    @luxire - was wondering what's the current turnaround time look like on shirts right now? Contemplating placing an order today/tomorrow (need to get your thoughts on current fit pics) but would need to have the shirt in hand by next Thursday at the latest. If things are backed up right now, I'll probably hold off on that and order a few things later on.

    Luxire,

    General question / comment about the product variety versus the website. Obviously, your product offerings are outpacing the ability of the website to make standard orders. Is that going to change going forward?

    How does a permanent stitch crease work? I googled it and all it said was to sew a line down the crease?
