Indeed, come to the (literal) dark side :cool: 

 

Black linen pants are a fantastic summer staple, worn with just a simple t-shirt and pretty much any semi-formal/casual footwear you can imagine (well expect boat shoes maybe, fuck boat shoes)

What are we people's 'standard' modifications to their shirt and pants patterns?

I like the bottom shirt buttonhole cut horizontally to keep it from coming unbuttoned, and will request this regardless. Do people have other small modifications that have become standard?

I have measured the distance of my second button position for dress shirts so it is to my liking when I am not wearing a tie. Not too much that chest hair or undershirt shows.

I have started asking not to have the extra buttons sewn in to the bottom of the placket.

For me it's:

 

Shirts

-Light shirring in shoulders and cuffs
-2nd button positioned an inch lower
-Final/bottom hole horizontal

-(Future orders) 0.5" increase for shoulder slope
 

Pants:

-Hem guards on the inside of cuffs

-Rubber Grips and Ban-Rol inside the waistband

Has anyone had a bicycle jersey made? Obviously it would require the right fabric but it was the navy sport mesh that gave me the idea.

Can you explain what "Ban-Rol" is and how it is useful? I Guess the "Rubber Grips" are something they put on the inside of the waistband to keep the shirt in place?

Great question.

 

On my shirts, I ask for:

 

-  The corners on the collar band to be rounded.

 

- Thin MOP buttons, as I find the standard a bit too much.

 

- No Luxire label inside

 

- No collar stay-"Pocket" (I never use collar stays)

Just took delivery of the brown Minnis flannel 0307. What an amazing cloth.

Ban Rol is a material that's sewn inside the waistband between the fabric which reinforces it and prevents the waistband from the dreaded buckling/pulling. Keeps the waist looking crisp. It works very well especially on cotton and all season wool fabrics. I do believe Lxuire provides Ban Rol by default if you request rubber grips.

No problem at all. Minnis light gray flannel and Vista stripe shirting. 

 

I really like the light gray flannels, I know Minnis stopped making them, and they have a new line of flannels. Not sure if these are still available or not, but I did send an email today inquiring. 

 

Shirt has a tiny bit of texture, which I like personally.

 

Best,

Thank you sir. I own that shirt as well and it's excellent for the price. I'm hoping Luxire will offer more colors in the fabric soon

Shirts:
Deeper cuffs than standard
Left cuff larger to accommodate my watch

Formal Pants

No belt loops, coin pocket or any adjusters etc.

I've got some good tips from this thread about small modifications/requests. Must've read hundreds of pages haha.
