I ordered a swatch of this with my first order, the swatch was pinned on the sheet of paper showing the reverse side if compared to the picture on the website.
I still don't know which side is the right side but, given that I like them both, ordered the pants anyway.

Actually I prefer them how I got them, it is a lighter blue than the one showed in the picture. I will try to provide better pictures when I arrive home.

here are the pictures. The big "swatch" underneath are my trousers. On top of them you can see the swatch on both sides. If you compare my pictures with Luxire's webpage picture, it really seems that they published a picture of the reverse side.

Great looking trousers, did you get them lined?

Thanks. Yes, to the knee.

I'm still trying to figure out what I have to change for my next shirt order. Attached you can find two pictures. One main problem I want to discuss is the big crinkle under my armpit. Where does it come from? Is it possible that this crinkle is because the back width is noticeable more narrow than the front measurement? The side seams run down more at the back than at the side of my body (I've tried to mark that). What do you think?

Didn't get an answer to my E-mail. So i will try it here.

I would like to make a new order based on the OCBD shirt from my last order.

What can I change in my measurements to avoid the wrinkles between my neck and the armpits (as seen in the attached picture)?

I believe you want more shoulder slope. Here is a handy link:

I'm unbelievably / uncharacteristically chill about these things but any chance you could just quickly acknowledge the (third) email I've sent.

No rush replying, just let me know I'm somewhere in the queue.

Luxire denim after exactly a year of wear. I have let out the leg opening to 8", but I'll get 8.25" or 8.5" next time. I've also corrected the leg stance issue, so the seat has no wrinkles anymore.

I'm very happy with the way the denim looks after a year. It's certainly much better than some of my other jeans, which show wear much faster.

Where is Luxire in terms of doing suits? I assumed they could but can find nothing on the website in terms of swatches.

Suits are still done as a special order. All of their trouser swatches can be made into suits, so you just need to email them and ask for a quote depending on the fabric. They can do CMT as well. I just got a new suit a few weeks ago, and I think the jacket fit is perfect for me, and Luxire nailed my trouser measurements, so the next time I buy a suit I will mail in the jacket for duplication and I'll use my trouser pattern for the suit pants.

These look great. :fonz:  I wish you could get a full body shot or one at a more natural vantage point.  I'm thinking about getting a pair of these this summer.

MonkeyFace, I don't think I've ever seen such a clean 'draping' pair of jeans before!

+1 They look very un-jean like. Is there a crease in those as well? Almost looks like a hybrid trouser-jean

I think what gives this impression is the lack of jeans-style front pockets (looks like he went with on-seam or slant pockets) and the lack of yellow-golden stitching, especially around the hem and fly.

That is possible but it looks too tight all around the waist in general and with a little more room at the back/delt area (which you should have) the excess is causing the wrinkles. You shouldn't combat the excess by taking it away, rather the opposite. Add some more room to the waist and chest and it should relax it a little.
