Thanks for the response, Theresa did get back to me for a quote, and the next step is trying to source a distressed two-tone leather like the one pictured.  I'm sold on Luxire's production quality, but what did you think of the leather itself?  That seems like where most of the cost difference might lie. edit: just curious about the sourced leather, didn't want to imply anything about luxire's quality.

Sounds like a good idea. Will try it tonight, thanks.

Hey guys, 

 

been following this thread for a long time but first time posting.

 

ordered a shirt and it turned out perfect thanks to all the info in this thread!

 

interested in trying some pants, has anyone tried the Brown Black Micro Houndstooth? whats it like in terms of weight, just as a trial pants?

 

Thanks

Hey folks,

 

Getting close to dialing in my shirt measurements. I think I went a little too narrow on some part of the forearm. It get s pretty snug when bending at the elbow. I can't tell if this is due to sleeve length needing to be let out (adding approx .25'') to the forearm from elbow down.

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

 

Also, the sleeves are single pleat, someone a few pages back wanted a pic but can't remember who.

Here's one of the shirts I ordered. Think it needs to be slimmed down in the torso but it's not bad. Didn't iron it yet obviously. Thoughts?

I hope you get time to do a review at some point Joji would be interested to see some pics and hear your impressions.

Wash, Iron, Wear

 

Repeat a few times to see how the fabric sets.

@Monkeyface I remember you saying you tried adding +1 inch to the back on a recent order to get rid of the shoulder-fold problem, how did it turn out?

I used them as my trial trousers too (the review on the Luxire site is mine). They are quite heavy. I've only worn them a few times as they tend to get creased easily and hey, they were a trial to get things close to right. As I say on the site, they don't appear black/brown, rather grey/green.

 

Personally, I'd avoid that fabric again. I've since had trousers in Dugdale wool, denim, and linen, and like them far, far more.

post #12475 of 13857

Yeah I was thinking the colour may look off, might opt for something else like perhaps denim, thanks for the info @nephster

post #12476 of 13857

first try on pants. fit pretty well. happy with it as first trial. fits a little bit tight in the top block. any suggestions as to adjustments that should be made? also, notice that when i sit down, the length of the button fly tends to get all crumped up and tends to pull towards the left. not sure if there is any adjustment for that (possibly making the length of the fly shorter?)

 

thanks in advance.

Hip girth needs to be increased. Not only that, but with your build you need pleats to avoid bagginess as a result of the increase.

 

Either that, or start skipping leg day.

Nope, I removed one inch from the back panel and added it to the front panel. It worked very well, except the lower back is still a big baggy. I've removed one inch from the lower back panel for my next shirt, so that should get rid of the excess fabric in that area

bik2101, That's a very good fit for a first try. I'd probably let out the hips a little to stop the pockets from flaring out.  But most importantly, I'd consider a lower rise for flat fronts, perhaps the better part of an inch for the front rise to get the waist band on or just above the hips. I think you'd avoid bagginess when letting out the hips that way. For my preference, I'd have a slightly wider leg opening, I think the whole look would synthesise better with your upper body development that way.

thanks for the suggestions. reason i went for the higher rise is that lower rise pants tend to be harder to fit for me. but i guess given i can customize it, will consider that too. 

 

waiting to hear back from theresa too on thoughts.
