My orders usually take 4 weeks but that has included trousers. Guessing that's the bottleneck.

 

I suspect so.  I just placed my first order that included both pants and shirts, so will report back on whether it further delays things.

2,5 weeks, order including trousers and shirt (one of each).

I do hope they didn't put those in a box together...

Uups, little typo :)

My guess is that adding a bit of length to the back rise (you've got to specify that they do it at the crotch, not the waist) would help.  The half hip may help also, especially if it also feels a little tight across the front.  If you have a little bit of a wedgie, also lowering the inseam would work.

 

In any case, aidanc is right, probably the best way of figuring this out is to take a few pic, send them to Luxire and they can tell you what they think should be changed (and by how much).  Their feedback has been great for me.

Seems as good an endorsement as any. Cheers Simon.

Any recommendations on a good white cloth for a basic work dress shirt? Same question for light blue and any other recommendations you might have

@Quesjac: Here you go

Fantastic, thanks. I think it's a toss-up between cotton tweed and duck canvas for a first pair in brown, but these do look very nice.

I'm looking for a good cloth to have a pair of khaki chinos made up- they'll probably be more for work so they'll be on the dressier side, but I'd still like something with some substantiality to it. Can anyone make recommendations?
post #20486 of 24611

@Quesjac: The duck canvass pants were the first ones I got.  They are great too, although a very different fabric.  They are fairly stiff at first.  I think it depends on what you are looking for: the duck canvas are fairly casual, the cotton tweed dressier.

Many people here rave about the Wool-rich fabrics.  They have one in khaki.  Other than that, probably some of the higher end cotton twills (the ones that don't say "chino" in the title/description) like the Brisbane moss ones would probably do the trick.

post #20488 of 24611
Thanks. I was eyeing the wool rich khaki for a while but I think I'm looking for something more casual. Brisbane Moss is on my radar too, but I'm concerned with wrinkling. Anyone have experience with the Brisbane Moss twirls- how do they hold up throughout the day? For reference I'm used to Wings and Horns Westpoint twills and was happy with the weight of those.

I'm tempted to even go duck canvas or moleskin.

I have been very happy with these two:

White:

Light Blue:

As a disclaimer, I tend to like slightly heavier and less wrinkle-prone fabrics. Not a big fan of broadcloth.
