Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 1363post #20432 of 2517711/5/15 at 8:36ampost #20433 of 2517711/5/15 at 10:57amI have had a reply from Luxire about a recent jeans order. I have replied asking for clarification on exactly what the problem might be so I can adjust accordingly... still awaiting a reply. In the meantime, does anyone have any theories here about why my measurements might be off? I kind of understand the changes to the hip and rise, but why suggest changes to the insteam and thigh? My best guess at this point is that they are comparing the measurements to a dress pant pattern on file and extrapolating.
My instructions (I measured a pair of Iron Heart 634s and a pair of Levi STF and took roughly the midpoint between the two). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)1x Luxire Selvedge - Custom Jeans - 13Oz Raw Indigo NOTES: Your custom style and fitting requirements:
1/2 Waist - 17.5"
1/2 Hip - 23"
Hip Front (seam to seam) - 20"
Front Rise - 11"
Back Rise - 16"
Thigh (2" below crotch) - 12.25"
Knee - 9.5"
Inseam - 34"
Full Length - 46.75"
Ankle - 8.5"
-13oz raw indigo
-four button fly
-no arcuates on rear pockets
-instead of pre-washing fabric please pre-soak the denim in hot water to shrink before cutting the pattern
-plain heavy leather patch
-no visible selvedge at coin pocket
And the reply from Luxire:
The pant measurements appear to not stack up when making the pattern.
We suggest a half hip measurement of 22.25" (supplied 23.00")front rise 11.50"(supplied 11.00"),back rise 16.50"(supplied 16.00").Inseam measurement:35.00(supplied 34.00),Thigh measurement:12.75(supplied:12.25)
Please let us know how to proceed.post #20434 of 2517711/5/15 at 11:29am
I can't figure out Luxire. I have had a few items made with them this year and they were extremely well done. Furthermore, Luxire was responsive about fit questions. However lately I have been unable to get a response from them on a pair of pants that were ordered 3 months ago as well as recommendations on fit for a shirt that they made. Are they normally this erratic? I've sent them a number of emails over the course of a month and have received no response.post #20435 of 2517711/5/15 at 2:18pm
Does anyone have experience with the "soft" chinos? I've got a pair of the navy twill chinos which I like, but are not dressy enough for work. Are the soft chinos nice enough that they can almost enter slacks territory? Or are they strictly casual? What about moleskin, or any other non-woolen fabrics?post #20436 of 2517711/5/15 at 2:50pmQuote:Originally Posted by jet551

I'm not sure how you are communicating with them, but I've noticed that when you send a new email to the main luxire address they reply more promptly than when you are replying to an older chain of emails. My guess is that sometimes, people don't always catch the later followup messages because they are getting buried in a large thread.post #20437 of 2517711/5/15 at 3:01pmQuote:Originally Posted by JimmyTre

Thanks Jimmy. Yes I've been just responding with a Reply to an older chain of emails. So I think you are saying to create a new email altogether and send to email@example.com, right?post #20438 of 2517711/5/15 at 3:28pmQuote:Originally Posted by homework

I think in general chinos have a little bit of informality to them. With colors like tan, stone and cream, you can probably get away with them as dressy in some cases, provided the pants cut is right. The darker colors like navy, black, or grey are a bit harder though. I think that it is for two reasons: a) the darker fabric seems to show the stiffness of the fabric a little more; b) chinos over time are supposed to fade, that's part of their casual appeal, but it makes them look a lot less dressy, you just don't notice it as much with the lighter colors.
Moleskin is going to be very thick, so I'm not sure how well it would work for dressy/work situations. The high-end twills (like the Brisbane Moss ones) should work well. Some high quality cords can also work. I just got the coffee brown cotton tweed and it definitely does the job in a work setting. I wish Luxire has some more similar fabrics. It gets trickier with lighter weight fabrics.
The other suggestion would be the always-mentioned wool-rich pants. Yes, they are a wool blend, but you can wash them at home so in terms of care they are more or less like dressy cotton pants (which I wouldn't put in the dryer anyway).post #20439 of 2517711/5/15 at 3:52pmpost #20440 of 2517711/5/15 at 4:16pmQuote:
