Work from what fits best. Take measurements.

Send them to Luxire, ordering the test pants.

Think about any construction / styling details you want to change. Don't try to switch too much, like taking measurements from dress pants but ordering jeans style.

Get them.

Wear them. Maybe launder them.

Take a photo and send to Luxire asking for advice.

Order another pair, incorporating their advice. If you are confident, order a good fabric. Otherwise stick with the test pants.

Get to what you want, then enjoy just being able to order more pants by finding fabrics you like and asking them to copy all details from your previous order.

How long can I order (interested in the flanel shirte)?

Does anyone already have a shirt made out of one of the first fabrics (twill flanel)? i suppose mainly for the cold season right? Also quite casual under a Pullover (merino?)

I'd say to start relatively simple. They'll make pretty much anything, so the options can get overwhelming if you don't restrict yourself. Pick a piece you want and a fabric you need, and get a staple make up.

If you have anything close to a good fit in your closet now, send that in as a base garment. It's easier to copy and modify and existing piece than to go off measurements. I nailed my pants fit first try by sending in a 95% of the way there pair and making some changes.


Also, start saving money, because you'll find that you really don't want to wear anything off the shelf anymore and will be compelled to replace more and more things.

How to order? Just order the 3 or 4 shirts as usual. We will refund the difference.

 

 

 

 

 

Crazy good deal! Just wondering, how promptly will the refund be processed? Before the payment is actually charged?

@Van Veen: SimonC is spot on.  You just need to have a little patience at first while getting the fit dialed in.  Definitely take advantage of getting fit feedback from Luxire before making the next order.  I think this is probably one of the services that makes Luxire a standout among MTM online services.

I found that using standard size charts and measuring shirts I already owned helped out quite a bit. It only took me a couple orders to get a fit I was happy with, but I think it helps not to try and be perfect. If there's one thing I have learned, nothing is ever perfect.

Had to take advantage of the sale discounts. Ordered a pair of cream moleskins, light brown cords and Dugdale cream cotton trousers (10 ounce). Should help me survive the winter.

Can someone tell something about the Light Sky Blue Chamray? Allround fabric? More for summer? Casual/formal?

Are the flanels new? Do you think they are wearable with pullovers?

Biggest order to Luxire yet! :slayer:

This actually sounds like a good idea. Might partake.

Yes, a few, but, I do know which ones. In the rush to get these out today, we missed capturing the range they belong to. They will ofcourse be relisted tomorrow again with the details.

 

Another good part of our miss is that there are some wonderful Albini deals in these fabrics because we just priced them to the standard minimum. Am sure we will lose good money in the bargain, but, that is the fun of Black Friday deals.

 

Also, I have a related PM of yours to reply to, will do that tomorrow. Apologies for the delay.

@luxire How do I place an order and finalize the details later? I want to make a sizing adjustment to the shirts, but Im away from the shirt that they are based on.
