See pictures below for the fit. What alterations would you guys suggest? The yoke is definitely too small in this shirt, my shoulders extend beyond the point where the sleeves are attached. I will increase each side with .75cm, so total 1.5cm. Chest will also be increased with 1.5cm to keep proportions right and now it is a bit tight.

I've also e-mailed Luxire for suggestions for alterations. How do I get rid of the folding in the upper chest (and upper back) near my shoulders? Will this be gone by the increased yoke, or do they need to increase shoulder slope or adjust for forward hanging shoulders?

And for the creasing near my armpit? Does the armhole need to be enlarged?

Thanks guys!

I would obviously see what Luxire recommend but in my opinion a slightly larger armhole measurement and waist measurement would help. Your waist/ stomach area looks tight which is contributing to the creases at the back.

Yes I will wait for the recommendations by Luxire. Waist doesn't feel very tight actually, but this cloth is also quite stiff so it doesn't drape at all, I think that also contributes to the creases at the back. Nevertheless I will take it into consideration, an additional cm couldn't hurt I suppose.

I am very much drawn to the textures of the hand loom fabrics.

I got this one a while back.  The fabric is very nice, although maybe the stripes are a bit wider than you might like.

Any pics on the wild? Thanks

@luxire and anyone else who wants to chime in:

What do you recommend for fitting guys with large hips relative to waist? My current body measurements are 34" waist, 40" hips, 25" thigh, and hips/thigh are always the limiting factor on RTW trousers.

Not just adding the right amount of room, the whole balancing of the front and back are important to get the fit right.

 

It is a good idea to send images of yourself wearing slim fitting clothing when/after placing your order.

 

The images help the pattern maker understand the body shape and draft the pattern accordingly.

 

Images taken from the front, sides and back are helpful, with the camera at waist height when taking the pictures.

I bet that is it.  I have a couple pairs of cords from Epaulet that are extremely comfortable (soft) and warm 

 

here is a shot of the fabric since I am wearing a pair today

Hi again

 

I got some questions:

 

1. How long does a pair of VBC flannel trousers last? I heard some flannels last about 200-250 wears?

 

2. Someone have any experience with Luxire jeans?

 

Thanks

@luxire 

 

Is Luxire able to add crotch lining or extra fabric in the crotch area for dress pants? I have athletic thighs which causes rubbing and excessive wear in that area. Thanks.

Yes. I would request a light lining or some other form of instruction. I had it done and personally didn't like the feeling. It felt like a diaper.

Thank you!  My three favorite plaids are probably the three cotton and linen shirts from Luxire, on the right in the pic below.  I also like the white, tan and navy seersucker on the left (Patagonia) and the blue seersucker in the middle (Luxire):

 

 

Something like the red/black/gray linen would be great but with navy substituted for the black.  

 

I don't know if others would be interested in patterned seersucker (Please chime up if you are!), but imo, there's no better shirt for hot weather, particularly for travel (since they don't need ironing).  

 

While I'm interested in other plaids, the only shirt I really want is a black and white gingham seersucker with each square between 1/8" and 1/4".  I've been able to find some that's smaller than 1/8", maybe 3/32":

 

 

It's the same size as the light blue one above, but I think that slightly larger scale is better, with the red at 1/8" is better and the brown at 3/16" is best.

 

 

Direct comparison:

 

 

 

As you can see, the brown one's puckering/rippling isn't as strong as the others'.  I like both kinds.   But my guess is that the bigger the check, the smaller the puckering needs to be, for both manufacturing and aesthetic reasons.  But again, I'm just guessing.  I also like how this fabric has the puckering spaced out.  It's also 50/50 cotton/poly.  Such a terrific hot weather travel fabric.

 

 

I also like SimonC's idea above of more tattersall oxfords.  I'd like one in tan, navy, and red, like this very nice Luxire flannel, but with darker, thinner lines, that are more closely spaced (~1/4").

@luxire I don't see that yall ever added those lightweight tweeds onto the site. Did you? They were ~8oz if I remember correctly.
post #21030 of 25162
Here are a couple plaids that I have and like. They fit the small scale / symmetric mold mentioned earlier.
