Interesting - I have a shirt jacket in progress that I'm hoping will be awesome - but let's see - keeping my fingers crossed!

 

I'm now considering a type of travel jacket - do your CruzCoats have internal pockets? If they do, could you show how they're done?

I always just go with 2 internal chest pockets. 6 total pockets is pretty much enough for me. biggrin.gif

About a month or so ago, I sent back my Minnis fresco trousers to Luxire to get reevaluated.  The pattern was based on a pair I sent in and while the fit was good, something was just a little off in the back and I couldn't pinpoint the problem.  I talked with Ashish and we decided it would be a good idea to send them back with the pair that was used for replication.  The plan was to evaluate both of the trousers and find out what (if anything) was off.  From there, they would make any adjustments to the fresco trousers they made and then also make a pair of sample trousers to make sure they got it right.

 

After they checked all the measurements, I got a message from Ashish telling me that they all matched up.  After a bit more digging, they discovered that while the back rise measurements were the same, the shape was different...something they hadn't noticed before.  Ashish told me they would begin working on it and he thought that I would be happy with the result.

 

The package came on Monday and they nailed it.  The adjustments they made to the fresco corrected the minor issues and the sample cotton trousers they sent are spot on.  While I've been happy with my results in the past, I am pretty thrilled now.  My pattern is about close to perfect as I could hope it to be.  It may take a while and shipping your favorite garments overseas (for some) can be a little nervewrekcing but  in my experience, Luxire delivered.  I'll try to post some pictures when I get a chance.

You have convinced me to try them out my man.

Whatever you have that you wish you could have more of, send it in and they will take care of it.  You might do without your favorite garment for a while, but you will live and it's worth it in the end.

Has anyone experienced this neck pinch of fabric at the back of the neck? Any idea of the cause? I thought I had my fit nailed down but this bothers me.

Yes, on almost every one of my OTR shirt. This is probably due to square shoulders (no trapezoid slope) and slight neck backward stance, or a combination of both. Mostly square shoulders, though.

 

Reducing the yoke height and adjusting for square shoulders (I don't know what Luxire calls this alteration) will probably alleviate this problem.

This is very interesting to me because, if I'm not mistaken, you sent in a pair of Howard Yount pants as your sample, which is what I did as well.  I too have an issue where the seat and the back rise are a little off and have been emailing with Luxire about how to fix this.  Can you share what the modification was?

Bingo. Just send them the picture to illustrate the problem, and they'll sort it out for your next order.

That is great to hear.  This is the kind of service I am used to hearing about from Luxire and I appreciate you letting us know.

I wonder if we talking about a more U shaped union in the crotch seam (where the legs meet) rather than a V shaped union?  My tailor has a word for this but I can't bring it to mind this morning.

Luxire's suggestion was to make the curve deeper at the back rise, but am curious to hear what the modification was for Murl.

Correct. They found that it was the shape of the back rise. The curve deeper at the back rise sounds about right...I'm no expert so here is the picture to illustrate.

I'm excited to hear that.  Thank you!

Which is the old and new pattern in your photo?

 

What type of issues were you having in your back rise area?
