post #22651 of 24627

I still haven't placed my first order and I'm still mailing with Luxire. I sent them photos of my pants and shirt and they suggested some adjustments - like scoop back at the crotch, decrease inseam, etc. But now I'm having second thoughts since the pants and shirt I'm wearing in photos are not from Luxire and they may have different cut (especially pants). So I'm afraid if the first iteration won't be good then it will be much harder for Luxire to pin point what needs to be changed on the second iteration. But I'm probably just overthinking as always :)

 

Also when the shoulder slope is increased will it influence the sleeve length?

Not this one, he will do only one shirt.

@luxire whatever happened to the other wool rich colours and patterns you mentioned a while back?

Guys, can get some trouser advice? What should be my next trouser choice in terms of formal/business? I feel like something is missing...

I have:
Wool rich navy
Wool rich grey
Darl grey flannel (Chinese tailor)
Linen blend in beige

Maybe a tan colour in something suitable for a British summer/autumn?

@thebuddahman I think you have the right idea. My next move would be a tropical weight wool in some light neutral colour.

Also, are all of your trousers solids? It might be time to incorporate a low key pattern like a subtle stripe or a Prince of Wales plaid or herringbone or something.

That's a good idea. Im up for some sort of subtle pattern. Any recommendations? Not wanting to break the bank really. I was hoping luxire had some wool rich in a pattern up for sale by now.

Tastes vary, but I wouldn't advise chosing patterned odd trousers for a 'formal / business' wear. It will just look like you forgot to put your jacket on.

I just got some made up in a grey/black houndstooth fabric (think it was on sale from 199 down to 149?) in an overall mid-grey color. Should be nice with solid sportcoats/blazers in brown or blue. I have worn them recently with different colored sweaters/jumpers such as purple or blue, though that may be too casual for your work environment. I think they currently have several different houndstooth fabrics in greys, blues, and browns, though some are summer weight and some are a bit heavier, so some may be more seasonal.

 

Quick edit based on @SimonC's post: if you're trying to stay quite formal/conservative, plain trousers is the way to go. If a bit of uniqueness is fine, subtle patterns might work. For context, I'm an academic who is known to "dress up" which makes me quite unusual so I can deviate quite a bit from U/CBD as much as I want with no worries. You might want to blend in a bit more and/or be facing more potential judgment in your own space.

@SimonC, I think that's a reasonable concern, but once you're going informal enough to not need a suit the ship of sartorial conservatism has maybe kind of sailed, you know?

@thebuddahman, what do you wear these trousers with? Plain or patterned blazers, sweaters, plain or patterned shirts, etc?

Always odd jackets. Shirts are mainly stripes or plain. Health care is my business so it's basically the more casual end of smart. Would love specific recommendations if possible. I like the idea of a pattern maybe. I have mainly grey and navy jackets.

Hello everyone.  Here is my suit and shirt that I received from Luxire.  Please post your thoughts on the fit.  Thank you very much for your time!

My thoughts:

 

1.  Jacket pulls just a bit at the top botton

2.  The rear sags just a bit and wrinkles down the back leg

3.  Need to come in on the chest and waist with the shirt

4.  Slim the shirt sleeves a bit.

Any suggestions for fabric and collar style to wear with brass cufflinks? I don't wear cufflinks often, and I've heard some good things about convertible cuffs as opposed to traditional french cuffs (for versatility). Does anyone have any opinions on them?

For those with polos and pique rugby shirts, do you generally have a separate yoke piece, or is the back panel one continuous piece?

Considering a pair of ghurka waistband khaki trousers. Am I nuts to be thinking flat-front/no pleats?

I just wanted a pair of khakis with a difference, not a perfect historically-correct replica, but haven't really seen any examples of this look without pleats.
post #22664 of 24627

higher waisted trousers usually don't really work completely flat fronted because once you bend your waist in order to sit down the waist circumference increases dramatically. pleats really do serve a purpose here.

post #22665 of 24627
Thanks Clapeyron, yours was the most recent nudge for me to get a pair. Your advice is appreciated, and I'll get them with double pleats :-)
