Got a shirt pic?

Vitale Barberis Canonico - Summer Wool Mohair Cream

84% wool, 16% super kid mohair, 230g / 8 Oz

 

I had a pair made last summer and went front lined to knee.  In hindsight, you can see the pocket bags through the back so I would opt for full lined if it concerns you but the fabric is for warmer weather and kind of defeats the purpose to line them completely IMO....

Thanks, I am leaning towards just lining the front to the knee.  How do you like them?

Fantastic fabric and very breathable in hot weather.

Has anyone ever had issues having their luxire items dry cleaned? I'm concerned that the MOP buttons on the shirts and horn buttons on the pants may be damaged, is this an issue? 

 

I would just get them laundered but I'm worried about shrinkage.

This results in a lot of fabric in front at too little in the back. Should Luxire be able to handel this for the next pair? Or am I advised to send in my measyred pair?

 

The hips also feels a bit wide.

 

 

Had a similar issue and Luxire suggested to increase front and back rise and lower the thighs. Overall the fit improved, but the crotch area still had extra fabric, so Luxire suggested to increase the back rise more. I'm still waiting for that pair to be delivered, so I can't comment on the latest alterations.

I actually prefer it over the Eidos since the collar has more structure to it. Just my tastes though

I had a similar experience with their initial pants.  The issue seems to be that the rear rise in their patterns tends to be shaped a little more like a "V" than a "U" so if you have a rear end that is a bit fuller in the lower part, then you get this wedgie.  When I initially sent picture for critique Luxire recommended to add a bit of length to the lower back rise and to lower the inseam a bit.  That helped but the wedgie did not go away completely.  You will be able to tell if that adjustment is not enough if you still have a wedgie but you also realize that the bottom of the crotch is starting to sag between your legs.  The solution is to ask Luxire to change the pattern so that the lower back rise has more of a U shape.  I did some research and the term seems to be "deepening the curve" of the back rise.
