Does anyone have experience with the grey wool flannel blend pants and side adjusters? I read a review on their site that said the fabric was too heavy to be properly supported by the side adjusters.

Side adjusters will support them just fine. On the heavier fabrics Luxire tends to use the larger brass adjusters.

I'm not getting a clear answer on this. I am sending in a sample shirt for measurements and have my shipping label printed and the email I received from Luxire indicates "Kindly place a copy of the same outside on top of the package" Some of the pages in the PDF sent from Luxire indicate "*ARCHIVE DOC" Do not attach to package"

Do I stick all of the documents inside the label pocket or just the top shipping label? If the latter what do I do with the rest of the documents. I was just planning on dropping the pack with my mailroom for DHL to pick up.

The PDF contains 6 pages:

DHL Shipping Label
Archive Doc Page 1
Archive Doc Page 1
Archive Doc Page 1
Shipment receipt
Proforma Invoice

The way I see it the shipping label should be put on the outside of the pak with the proforma invoice and I should keep the rest of the paperwork, but what do I know.

Perhaps my eexperience would help. You attach the shipping label, and leave the package open. Put all the documents inside. The courier would know which one to keep and which to leave. He would then seal the package. You can then pick up the remaining documents back from thee mail room.

This is what the DHL helpline told me. And it worked three times. Obviously, if you are uncomfortable leaving the package open, the DHL helpline is usually helpful

I had a similar issue and from what I remember fixing it involved slightly increasing the rise and widening the thigh slightly so it draped better. I would just send these pictures via an email to luxire and ask for their recommendations on how to fix it as they will know best. A side on shot would probably help them as well. Personally I think the taper towards the ankle is a bit aggressive if you are looking to have dress trousers made, as such a thin ankle section will likely look a bit strange in a flannel or something similar.

 

Do you find that the shirt is hard to tuck in and have it remain tucked? It looks a little short in the pictures, but again it's hard to tell. 

Thanks for the tip around the wrinkling. I did email them right after posting here I just wanted to get multiple opinions. I'm looking to have casual chinos made not dress trousers. 


The shirt is actually the perfect length for me to stay tucked when I choose to but also allows me to wear it untucked. I wear most of my shirts untucked because of the work environment I'm in (tech startup).

This was the last post on the previous page so I wanted to "bump" it because I'm curious on the answer as well. I didn't know this was even possible. Anyone who's done this care to explain?

Here's a picture of it. It's called 'hem guard' or 'hem tape' and adds weight to the trousers for the purpose of drape. Is Luxire able to add these to trousers that feature military hems (slanted leg openings)?

Has anyone figured out how to specify a stiffer waistband when ordering trousers? Simply ask for a stiffer interlining?

I always get the inner rubber waistband which gives the results I am looking for. I realize they are not for everyone, but it will make for a very sturdy construction. I even specify for summer pants to have the "lighter version" utilized. 

 

I am very happy with the results.

Anyone have bad experiences with Luxire's customer service? I ordered my first pair of wool trousers approximately 4 weeks ago now, and last week received an email saying that they no longer had the fabric in stock and asked me to choose another one.  I replied back with a different fabric (at the same price) and haven't heard a response.  Tried again a few days later asking if it was received, still nothing.  Any suggestions as to what I should do?

I think they have a stiffer unfused interlining. You can also ask for a lightly fused interlining (unless you are getting suspender buttons placed on the banding) which I think gives an even better result than the thicker unfused interlining.
