What else do I need to know? Is there an in-depth guide in this 1300 page thread, I wasn't able to find much? Maybe a guide of what configurations of customizations fit well together, or what the norms are?

Thanks kindly in advance!

If you've already had experience with MTM and have a good handle on tyour measurements you are in good shape.  As with all online MTM services, it usually take a couple of order to get your fit completely dialed in, but you probably ahead of the game already.

 

My best piece of advice it to take care of Luxire's great customer service.  If after your first order you take some pictures and email them to them for advice, they will give you precise suggestions of how to further improve your fit.  You don't have to figure it out on your own, which can involved a lot of guessing, and, in my case, their advice has been spot on.

 I would also add black and maybe some kind of stone or cream to the list.

Question, I have a pair of double pleated pants that fit me well for the most part. If I send pictures of those pants and the measurements, would luxire be able to figure out how to make a single pleat pair of pants for me?

Awesome, I think I'll give them a try then (or rather, my girlfriend will). The fact that nobody has popped up in this thread bashing them says enough, I think.

 

Should I completely unlearn my knee jerk reaction whenever I see polyester on a label, or is this just a very well executed fabric? (I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the fact Styleforum recommends a poly blend, as you can tell).

Luxire is pretty much the only source I buy pants and dress shirts from anymore so I can't really comment on other brands. In general I avoid things like poly blends but the positive reviews here swayed me to try them

Mid gray with heathering, Medium-dark brown with heathering, Forrest green with heathering?

 

Thanks @luxire keep up the good work, I love my light gray ones.

I must admit, I'm a little upset with my latest luxire order. Ordered the VBC gray flannels. Requested waist size was 33" and received 34", requested knee was 9.0" and received 10.0", and requested a lining to the knee but they were constructed unlined. I've sent an email to them but haven't gotten a response yet - hopefully this can be rectified, as they are too lose in the waist, causing them to slide down and crease un-appealingly as well as having a larger knee giving me a less slim appearance.

I suspect you are measuring incorrectly.

Or, at the very least, measuring differently than Luxire.  You're better off having pants replicated and then specifying changes (add 1 inch to waist, etc.).  Telling them to make you pants with a specific waist and knee is a recipe for disaster if you are measuring these areas differently than they do.

I had a similar initial reaction, but the advantages are great particularly for travel or if you want wool-looking trousers for everyday wear. I mean, you can run them through the washing machine and even toss them in the dryer for chrissakes. I have cotton pants I'm afraid to launder myself.

I'm making no assumptions on either side, but Luxire has instructional videos on how to properly measure each aspect of trousers FWIW.

post #20309 of 24615

I'm thinking of having a best fitting sport coat sent in for copying and I wanted to as a few questions from you more experienced gentlemen.

 

1. For the first copy I was thinking of a classic navy blazer.  Are there any fabrics in particular that you've had a good experience with?  I'm looking for something that would be 3-season/all-season wear, probably towards the dressier/more formal end of the spectrum.

 

2. Should the blazer be structured or unstructured?  My best fitting jacket is unstructured and I have fairly broad shoulders, so I'm thinking unstructured, but I'm not sure if that would look strange on a blazer.  Also, would fabric type be a factor if I wanted to go with unstructured shoulders?

 

3. Finally, does anyone know what type of jackets Luxire makes (fused, half-canvased, full canvased)?

post #20310 of 24615

I suppose I should have been more specific. The measurements were different than the last pair of pants I ordered, so I know I am not measuring incorrectly. I sent Luxire pictures of both pairs with tape measure overlaid on each.

 

*edit - Also I noticed no one seemed to comment on the lack of lining, so even despite potential differences in measurements it's fairly evident these pants were not constructed to spec.
