    If I understand correctly, the cotton is highly compacted, making the shell rugged, thus immune to brushing against the bush, for example. Something like canvas. Difficult to achieve that with wool.

    as with all of Luxire's clothes I assume it will be completely up to you to tailor it to your preferences. Nonetheless it is a hard decision for the jacket, there are some cracking examples on the web.

    The lvc lookbook is cool. The clothes are less Fritz Lang metropolis and more Lewis Hine / empire state building but it's cool to mix both for a fictional storyline. They just got the women's hairstyle wrong which looks much later. Why not bobbed?

    Huh? Was it? I dunno but in the lookbook the pictures without the women cleary look more "real". She seems to belong to another collection maybe the hot rod fifties stuff.

    We are far, but determined. We realized that our investment in the cloth is anyways going to be huge ,so, the target initial orders would not make much of a difference monetarily.

    We are thus doing it for the love of it.

    The ones that we have are encouragement enough, with you leading the pack.

    The sample hat should reach us next week to get the ball rolling. Good chance that it will be ready in time for use in the coming season.
