Luxire, if you had to guess, how long would we have to wait before this shipping situation to be resolved for Canadians? Just trying to plan my next order and need some advice on whether I should wait or go ahead anyway.
Canadian consumers have been on the other end of this shipping scam for a long time Looking forward to when you have a new agreement worked out soon because there is a lot of risk as a Canadian when ordering... you never know how big of a bill you might get when the package arrives.
Also curious about this as I prepare my next order. My last one was $25 with no followup charges from the carrier.
@luxire If I have ordered trousers in the past and I order a new pair of trousers with all measurements specified will a new pattern automatically be created from scratch or will an old pattern be modified even if I do not reference it in the order?
I thought I read that Luxire makes womenswear for another brand. I've been trying to convince my wife to try Luxire for a while now, but I think she would be convinced if she saw some of Luxire's previous work for female customers. She also questions whether Luxire has a good selection of 'stretch' fabrics that are so common in women's clothing.
Scoring fits is as ridiculous as scoring wine. 20 thumb fit / 90 point RP scored wine being the threshold for 'good'. (This coming from someone who scores wines out of 100 points several times a week, so I guess I surrender willingly to the silliness of the system.) Anyway, now that that's out of the way, please continue because this is a great thread.
It seems that your shoulder seam droops past your shoulder point by 3/4" - 1". In terms of aesthetic balance, I like to shoot for an imaginary nice gentle curve with the side seam from the hips up to the shoulder seam. I could MS paint this if you can't visualize what I mean.
I've dialed in my pattern with Luxire and I thought I would share the measurements to give newbies a good starting point if they happen to be my size.I'm 6'2", athletic build with cyclist thighs. RTW jacket size is 40L, pant size is 33". My legs are slightly short and my torso is slightly long. I'm leaving out some other personal quirks (add 1/4" to left shoulder, etc) since they won't be relevant for anyone else. [[SPOILER]]
Would it be inappropriate to post constructive feedback on the aesthetics/balance of a few of the designs posted by Luxire? I feel like some of the images should get Foofed to bring them to the next level of awesomeness.
I had the same issue with my Persol 2989s (not folding though). I used the hot air from a blow dryer to gently warm them and bend them to 'open' them up a bit. It was a very slight adjustment at the bridge and while they still have a slight bend behind the hinges it is much less pronounced and they still stay on well.
