The shirt looks good, widening the bottom can't hurt but probably won't matter since it'll be tucked.  Could consider decreasing arm hole size; how do they feel?

 

I'd focus on the pants.  1/4 of an inch is within the variance of cutting and shrinking, so I probably won't expect fit changes on that scale.  Instead, I would considerably shorten the length to at least make sure the back is not breaking, and ask Luxire for help with the seat.  After a couple iterations you should be able to remove most of the wrinkles just below your seat, especially with wool.

I received some thorough feedback from the Luxire Team!

Shirts:

1. Increase shoulder slope by 0.25".
2. Increase armhole by 0.25".
3. Decrease sleeve width by 0.25".
4. Decrease cuff circumference by by 0.25".
5. Decrease chest below armhole by 0.25"
6. Decrease waist at back by 0.5"/ add darts to the back.

Pants:

The overall pants look fine.
1. Increase back rise at the crotch by 3/8".
2. Decrease inseam at crotch by 0.25"
3. Scoop the back slightly.

I agree with most points, but can anyone help with a few questions?

- What do they mean by increase armhole? The circumference of the opening? It felt a bit snug, but I thought that was attributed to vertical positioning of the hole?
- Is decreasing the waist by 0.5" too much? What will the darts accomplish?
- The pants fit OK, but they are obviously too snug in the seat. I understand the increasing of the back rise, but why the decreasing in inseam at the crotch? The scoop of the back should accommodate the bottom curvature better?

Yes. They would increase the overall circumference of the opening by .25". I had this done.

 

Decreasing the BACK waist by .5". Important difference. They would take .5" out of the back, but not the front. Based on your pictures I think this is a good call. It would serve to remove the extra fabric bunched at your lower back. If you prefer darts, they would achieve the same effect, thus the slash notation. Most people don't prefer darts unless they want to show off their tailored..ness.

 

Decreasing inseam at the crotch, but NOT the outseam, would make the distance between the inseam and the cuff shorter, but not change the length. With me so far? So, if you do that, it means that there is now slightly more space in the crotch. As far as scooping the back, yes, that is exactly what it would do.

 

You may also want to consider adjusting the size at the thigh and seat, if you think it's too tight. They're definitely fairly tight, but at that point it boils down to preference.

Is it the default for linen trousers to have no crease?

I'm with you on all items, I think that's probably best to adjust the thigh and seat a bit too, I just don't want it to be too saggy - I'm guessing the material might stretch a bit with wear too?

I just imagine that once they do the crotch inseam work + the scoop in the bottom, that would account for the butt/thigh tightness to some extent?
post #20631 of 24692

@1up: Those changes look good to me.  I think that the decrease of the inseam at the crotch is a meant to be a way of compensating for the scooping of the seat.  Since scooping the seat basically gets rid of some of the saggy/baggy fabric behind your thighs (right below the buttocks), and since the pants are a little tight at the buttock, lowering the crotch just a little ensures that the adjustment is not too high and giving you a different kind of tightness at the bottom of the crotch.

No,mine have always had them. Maybe if you order jeans style it's different?

How long will it last? And can we order first and then work out details? I haven't ordered in 1.5 years and need some adjustments. (EDIT 2: I don't care if it's fulfilled after Christmas)

EDIT:
If I order a bunch of 25% items (let's say for $300) and another $200 from other items, the 20% will not apply, correct?

Great, thanks @luxire!
Do you think you will be able to offer the Minnis flannel closeouts? I have the budget for the flannels or the thanksgiving sale but likely not both.

Should last 3-4 days, depending on how much stock we have for the offered items and how well they move.

 

The discounts cannot be stacked.

Ok, so even the GC promotions might not last until Black Friday?

(Sorry for being so annoying)

Any chance the 20 % and 15 % discounts will last until 27/11? That's pay day over here, lol. Thanks.
