aren't chambray and twill two different weaves? wouldn't that be like saying "broadcloth oxford"?
What I've been told by a textile designer is that chambray isn't necessarily a distinct weave. It's a weave with one color in the warp and a different colour in the weft. Most commonly it's a variation of a plain weave, but can be done in a variety of weaves. Technically oxfords and end-on-ends are chambray as well. I could have been taught wrong.

Speaking of timelines, how quickly are people receiving their MTO/MTM suit orders these days?

Consistently within 4-5 weeks since fall except one piece for which the delay can't be blamed on S&M.

That’s wild. Maybe it’s because I usually do MTM but it’s been mostly 10-12 weeks for me.
Another factor might be that I hardly make any changes to the RTW cut. Only sleeve length and minor details.

I suppose, but they’re still making a garment from scratch. Maybe it’s just that MTM takes longer.

I guess so. Just double checked my last MTO order. Placed 21 March, shipped 26 April.
