This would seem as good an endorsement as any...

I better hurry up and buy before that fabric sells out.

Is it possible to buy something without having it immediately made/shipped? Haven't ordered pants yet and would like to be extra sure I'm getting things right before making the plunge...

Yes.  I did it last linen sale.  They even let me then have one made to check fit then ship the rest.

How see-through are they? Any need for a lining?

Second this question. Do you guys line these, half line them, or leave them unlined? About to order a pair...

These are thick enough there is no need for a lining, but my preference is to half-line anyway.

For illustration purposes, three different Luxire fabrics held up to the light and then with a bold tie inserted underneath to show the extent to which it is visible:

Ecru Hopsack:





Off White Heavy Vintage Linen





Linen Cotton Canvas

Immensely helpful. Thank you for putting that together sir.

That's a full service answer! Thanks.

Long-time lurker, rare poster, but that's an incredibly helpful visual SimonC, thanks so much! Looking at grabbing the sliver grey cotton-linen pants during this sale!

I am thinking about having a super casual suit made. I have what amounts to a shirt jacket, which has no lining or canvassing of any sort, that I will send in for copying, and I would have pants made to match.

The problem I have is that I have no idea which linen will suit this project. I would very much like to use the Linen Indigo. That fabric is listed at 8oz. Is that heavy enough to make an unstructured jacket and pants? If not, can someone suggest a weight that would be more appropriate?

I'm measuring out a pair of my best-fitting pants to order a pair of test trousers. When I measure out the half-hips, should I include the excess area from the seat of the trousers? Meaning, should I basically be measuring how much fabric in total is in that area, like I would the waistband?

Thanks!

EDIT: I've got a large ass (lots of squats!) and finally got these pants sized so that they fit my waist and my backside well, so if the half-hip measurement doesn't take into account my seat measurement, what does? Sorry if these are really basic questions.

Just mail them to @luxire and save yourself the time. Plus you won't have to blame yourself for if you measure incorrect, or worry about it for that matter.

Ah, but then I am without my best fitting pants for a month.

You'll get by without them and save yourself time, money, and frustration. Trust me. It might take a month or so, but after that you'll be able to order whatever you want and you're pattern will be set.
