I'm not a tailor. I've also tried to not comment on anything that's a stylistic rather than technical matter.To my eyes you have too much ease through the upper front of the coat, leading to it puffing out above the buttoning point. This is worst where the pocket square accentuates it, but can be seen on the wearer's right hand side too.Conversely the skirts are cut quite trim, which exacerbates the effect of a jacket which looks too top heavy.The shoulders and sleevehead...
Creasing will always occur where there is surplus fabric which has been adjusted in. Best way to resolve it is just to specify a smaller waist measurement so there is less surplus.
It's my favourite Luxire own-label fabric. Currently getting a shirt jacket made up in it too (not for wear with the pants, can have too much of a good thing).
I think you're asking in the wrong place. This is the 'Classic Menswear' section of a forum dedicated to 'style'. The term 'cosplay' is an abbreviation of 'costume play'. I'm not going to make any value judgements on whether you should or should not wear it, but the term implies it's not intended for everyday public wear.
Is anyone else finding the recently-introduced marketing copy on Luxire's blog somewhat over the top: "Having or ordering a denim shirt is the best thing you have ever done. They will always make you look good, cool and classy."
If it's going to bother you, which by implication it will since you took it to the tailor, get it tailored. He is right, it will likely leave a visible mark. If you are paying to do so, do it properly from the shoulder so you retain the original finishing to the cuff (assuming the shoulders are finished in a way that allows this).
Wool dress pant.
Mine too - and I think it's actually more like 21oz. Sadly they discontinued it and it's all sold out. The new stuff is OK but nowhere near as good.
Another way to look at it - if fused is the only construction technique offered by the tailor then walk away. If they offer a fully bespoke pattern with fused construction as a lower cost option against fully canvassed then it can be a means to dial in your pattern or experiment with fabrics with less sunk cost.
This. Although if you are set on keeping them, analyse where they are too large. Insoles reduce depth and therefore overall volume. Heel pads address a heel cup that is too large, and tongue pads a shoe which has a lasted instep higher than your foot.
