Thoughts on fit of this linen that has been laundered? How to improve?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




post #21783 of 24708

I'm thinking of getting my first pair of pants from Luxire. I'm specifically looking to make a chino, casual pant. Which of the following options would be best?

 

1. Send a bespoke pair of wool suit pants that fit great to copy with some adjustments. This seems like an ok idea but I feel that a wool dress pant and a chino don't really have the same fit/drape.

2. Send a pretty good fitting pair of chinos to copy with adjustments. Not as good a fit as #1, but it's a chino and may be closer to what I want.

3. Start from scratch and just choose the measurements myself on the website.

Looks excellent!
I suppose there are some that may argue that sleeve length could be slightly shorter or perhaps that it may be too fitted for linen.
I would disagree. Not much room for improvement at all.

#2. If your suit pants have a higher rise and different upper block than what you'd wear for chinos then send your chinos in and base adjustments off that.

Very clean overall. Great drape.
1) yoke looks too wide for my liking -- unless you are Dwight Howard with bowling ball shoulders and severe V-shape
2) sleeve length could be shortened slightly
3) given how fitted the body, potentially slim the bicep measurement because it's looks billowy, but that may be the linen at play

No luck so far. If the situation changes, will report back.

Here's what worked for me: I started with my best-fitting pants and spent some time with safety pins making little adjustments here and there. When I thought I had the fit right I measured the results using Luxire's guide and ordered from the measurements. I got good results from the first order and have made only minor tweaks since then, but just the same, it's probably good to treat the first try as an experiment and to order one of the inexpensive test troursers.

^^^^This 100%. 

 

I have athletic legs so what I did was purchase a pair of cheap trousers locally that fit well off the rack in the most important areas (seat, hip, and thighs). Next step was safety pins and having my local cleaners taper the knees and leg opening as desired. The final step was using Luxire's measurement guide and including any added adjustments. For me it this included increasing the front/back raise. Overall I was able to nail my fit down on my first pair of Luxire trousers using this method.

Thanks for your feedback.

You think the yoke is too wide b/c it spills over my shoulders?
Agree on sleeve length
Worried shortening bicep width may make it restrictive, but not sure

On another note - do you guys recommend altering measurements based on fabric i.e. this is linen and if I now want cotton, do I need to change measurements to account for a different fabric?

In a reflection of how truly first world my problems are, I go over things like this multiple times before placing orders.
I certainly have and would order linen or linen/cotton clothing slightly larger, to both accomodate for shrinkage, and also because I don't mind a slightly looser fit for truly casual clothing. Looser, not baggy mind you.

Having said that,I'm also more inclined to get slim/fitted clothing for work or formal wear.

You and me both appear to have similar problems! Ha

Good to know. Suppose I should order cottons a tony bit smaller than this linen. Awaiting to hear back from Luxire as well regarding fit.

The pair im showing are high waisted and sit exactly where I want them too.

Issues: the front crease line doesnt fall straight,it curves sometimes when I move around.

The wedgie effect and unclean seat.




Would appreciate some advice here.

 

Seconding these questions --- I have nearly the same issues.  No idea what to specify to get rid of all the excess fabric in the lower seat/upper thigh.

A fair point, of course, though I do tend to think about it only after I've put the trousers on.

 

Luxire was always very obliging in sending replacement buttons/buckles etc. From experience free of charge if you have another order placed and they have to ship something to you any ways.

Can be done. Do send us an email with the order number with which we need to send the buttons and also this image.
