It's a small and reasonable expense to order your first pair unfinished and have them hemmed by a local tailor.
Seconded. I give them the most ridiculous requirements, despite my best efforts, and somehow they turn it into beautiful custom clothes that become centerpieces of my wardrobe.

I'm always wary of a one-sided account. The Reddit reviewer declines to post the actual text of his own email, summarizing it only as "much more stern", but then directly quotes the email he got in response. I suspect the reason he didn't quote his own email is that he was being a prick (or was perceived to be doing so in threatening to not pay for something that Luxire had clearly been working hard to get done for him). That said, nuances are often lost in cultural...
