Well, this was their advice to me as well.
From what I understand they cut neck hole deeper in back by .25 and sew on same collar. For me it looks like excess material being sewn on same collar.
Bit surprised how guys are able to tweak pants and jackets and I being caught on this.
Suggestion to take it to local tailor to fix and send to replicate? I could, but keeping in mind that initial shirt I sent was flawless is not encouraging.

Just got my trial pants and first shirt. Generally quite happy for a first iteration. There is something strange going on in the seat section of the pants. Any tips what needs to be done? Best constructed pants I got though, lovely quality.

 

For the shirt I have raised my arms pretty much as high as I can, arm movement more restricted than I am used to. What can be done to increase the movement in the arms?

 

Ordering a second run as soon as I know how to improve on this one. Please ignore the unbottoned collar. :embar:

Do not send in another shirt.  Just try the recommended modification and see if it takes care of the issue.

I've had similar issues with the seat.  It took a couple of iterations to completely fix, but after the first set of changes the pants were eminently wearable.  If you send pictures to Luxire for critique they'll help you figure it out. 

 

It seems that the curvature of the rise in their standard pattern doesn't work for every body type.  The fix usually involves adding length on the rear rise at the seam, lowering the crotch a little and scooping out the seat (see previous posts on this thread about that).

Thanks for the feedback. I have sent an email with pictures to Luxire.

This was my first try at Luxire. I think I nailed the fit. These are the brown duck canvas. Probably not suited for a sportcoat, but I like to live life on the edge.

Wow.  Great fit.

Those do fit well.

Thanks! I will check out both brands on the website and see what I like. I remember reading about Molloy ten or so pages back when you guys were trying to get a group buy deal as they were closing out some fabric. Tweed trousers can still be worn formally as well as semi-casual, correct? I don't mean formal in the sense of a black tie event but I could wear them with a dress shirt and no jacket and I'd fit in?

 

Another question, and a simple yes or no would suffice, but I'd appreciate any commentary: Am I insane for thinking you could wear dress shirts with a french cuff (using silk cufflinks in various bright colors) could work in a casual/semi-casual environment? I just like the idea of the splash of color from the cufflinks so I was considering that instead of the standard 1 large button/1 small button (for when I roll up my sleeves) cuff...

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT: How does the multi select quote work? I hit multi on the two posts and then typed a response in the quick editor at the bottom of the page but the quotes did not print.

I think really it boils down to HOW you wear it really. If that's your look and you feel comfortable with it then go for it.

Remember, you can ask Luxire to do anything to personalise shirts so if you wanted to get the same sort of effect with single cuffs then why not change the way the cuff is cut, or the length, or different coloured buttons or different coloured button hole stitching? The possibilities are endless!

Eh, I think if everyone else's pants are worsted or smooth you'll stick out a bit.

On the French cuffs, I've done this for not serious events like a casual wedding reception.

On the multiquotes, you have to hit the multi on all of the posts except when you are ready to reply. When you have all of the posts you are ready to reply to, except the last one, hit the quote botton button instead of the multi-quote or reply button.

I really thought I'd do the different color button hole stitching but as I thought about it more, I thought that may be rather silly as it is much more obscure than silk cufflinks...
