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.

Thanks for the comments guys. It was a bit of an experiment. I used to wear jeans with an OCBD and an unstructured blazer quite often, but I always felt most jeans were too casual for this. So, I asked Luxire for a pair without contrast stitching, on seam pockets and side adjusters. They also have buttoned/jetted pockets in the back, to keep the lines clean. Luxire executed it perfectly, as they're great at interpreting ideas. The jeans hold a crease for about a week of wearing, so sometimes I wear them with a crease and sometimes I don't. 

 

Some say they're neither fish nor fowl, which is true, but I like them precisely because of that. Denim has become so ubiquitous in our society, that it's original workwear role has long been forgotten. I thought it would be a fun experiment to blur the lines between classic menswear and workwear even further. After all, why would creased cotton chinos be ok, but creased cotton denim not?

 

Either way, they elicit strong (positive and negative) reactions online, which is part of the fun. I doubt most people in real life have even noticed there's something different about my jeans, besides from a few questions about where I got them.

 

On an interesting side note, BN tailor has started posting bespoke creased and cuffed jeans on their instagram, so I guess I'm not the only one whose has these thoughts. I don't think I'd wear mine with a tie though.

Not a big fan of the look myself, but, once again, credit to Luxire for executing your requirements.

One question on fit:

my last order from Luxire for pants fits very well, maybe too well, I am considering to add a quarter of an inch here and there to allow more comfort.

 

Anyway, the issue is another one. I have a quite prominent seat (don't know if it is a tilt issue or just the way my gluteus are), the pants fit me well but i have some sort of "waves" of fabric just below the waistband on the back.

How will I reduce this?

 

Another question is, if I increase the total length of the pant, keeping the inseam as it is and keeping the front and back rise as they are, what will I get?

post #11119 of 13808
I am having the same problem. The problem here in my opinion is that the backrise is too high. My first jeans ordered had these issues with a backrise of 40 centimeters. When lowering the backrise to 36 centimeters with the second pair of jeans, problem disappeared.
Now I still have this issue with chino's. With the next chino order I will lower backrise again and I hope this 'bump' under the waistband is gone.

I thought the same, but I feel the pants very close around the part between my legs (sorry, don't know hot to call the part where backrise and frontrise meet) and I am afraid that, reducing the backrise will force the pant between my buttocks (sorry again if my terminology is inappropriate)

post #11121 of 13808

I *think* that the problem is a mix of the back rise being too long and the angle being wrong - I'm no tailor, but it seems that if you have a 'large seat' (something I suffer from as well!) the waistband needs to come in quite dramatically once you've cleared your buttocks.

post #11122 of 13808
I think this has been asked, but what's the best way to go about lowering the rise? I am going to send in a pair of pants for copying, but the rise is about 1" over optimal. Obviously this causes other adjustments to be necessary. Does Luxire have a pretty good idea what to adjust based on "1 inch lower rise" or..?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a Pale Blue Poplin?  I've read that the cheapest one on the site is pretty thin and prone to wrinkling.

Sorry, but can some helpful sort tell me again how to send luxire a picture of a detail you are requesting.

I have something similar, a grey cashmere/denim blend with a pleat along the sides. They also exist in the "between jeans and trousers" space and are very comfortable. I forget who made them.

Luxire, any chance of more pics of the collar and the order number here? It looks really nice.

Both mine.  These look great, Luxire.  Awesome turnaround time as well.  Thanks.

The collar is a soft cutaway.  I left it up to them to decide on fusing/lining, so I'm assuming they went with the medium fused collar band/lightly lined collar leafs (??).  Order #7606
