Anyone knows/ has experience, with solid material for trousers that is good for winter and also for work/ office ? Also what kind of material is best suitable for winter and office ( pattern stripes or plain )? Thanks in advance.

Just received shipping confirmation after exactly four weeks which has consistently been the norm for all my orders even with slight modifications. I pretty much make the same order each time which is two shirts and a pair of trousers. This was Order #5

Latest order inbound! Looking forward to watching it travel around the world.

I'm pretty sure both of our orders will be on the same FedEx flights until they reach the Chicago hub.

Striped trousers are not a good idea without making it into a suit with a matching jacket.

Solids are most versatile, although small-scale patterns such as herringbone / houndstooth can also work well.

Your profile doesn't say where you are based / what conditions 'winter' brings. Personally I'd start with a pair of grey flannel (iconic for a reason) in either the lighter VBC cloth or the heavier Luxire own-brand pure wool.

As frequently mentioned, the wool rich pants are great for the office if the weight works for you.

Unless your workplace is very casual, I'd avoid cotton pants (e.g. moleskin, corduroy)

I have a SC in a very similar 10-wale that is half-lined and it works extremely well.

Just recieved my second order, brown duck canvas trousers and white pinpoint oxford.

I would appreciate some opinions on fit.

My own thoughts.
1. I think the shirt fit is fairly good, I have no real complains and have good range of motion in the garment.
2. The trousers: overall the pants are comfortable and have a more full cut, which was intended, but I am not used to it. The seat area feels very spacious, maybe I am used to too tight trousers, or maybe they are indeed a bit to roomy?
The leg width is good. Used to a more slim cut but I think this cut fits me well.

Any comments?

What do you think of the duck canvas? I'm thinking those may be my first Luxire commission.
post #20949 of 24668
Just chipping in...I like the duck canvas but they are very much a casual trouser. They wouldn't work formally. Very heavy.
post #20950 of 24668
Very heavy and stiff fabric. Should become softer after some washing I have herd. I plan to use them on casual occasions. I have not come around on it jet... Price is fairly low though.

It's a workwear/casual thing. I really like it, but for sure not a formal office fabric. More on the level of denim.

I have a pair.  The fabric is initially stiff and a little rough.  They being to soften up after a few washes and will probably fade nicely over time.  They work great as casual pants, but difficult to pull off in other settings.

We are planning on new additions for next year. Do share your wish-list. Will get it started with items we are working on:

 

1. Blackwatch shirt :)

2. Summer wool: A hopsack in 100% wool. Perfect during the warmest days.

3. Linen-cotton canvas. We think it will be loved the most this summer. Available in 22 colors. Already available.
