post #22771 of 25377
Some recent arrivals: green cotton/linen chambray, Albini linen grey gingham, white cotton pique long-sleeved polo, grey wool rich dress cargos. All turned out beautifully, of course. A couple of notes on two items in particular:

My polo shirt pattern took the most iterations to get exactly right, primarily due to knits stretching and laundering differently from woven fabrics, but it was so worth it. Luxire now make all of my long-sleeved polos. This is the only way I can get the kind of collar I like, which lies nicely on its own but has the proportions and structure to stand well under a blazer as a dress shirt substitute.

The wool rich cargos are my attempt at the perfect travel pant. I have about 12 hours of wear on them and they feel, drape and retain their shape wonderfully. A selling point is that they can be machine washed and tumbled dry. I haven't done that yet and if I'm honest I'm a little apprehensive, but that's part of the point of having them made so I'll report on the results when the day comes.

That gingham looks amazing. I have a bit of cognitive dissonance with a creased cuffed cargo pant but I hope you enjoy them.

Anybody knows if luxire has on file the specs for popular items? I would essentially like them to replicate my SuSu Havana pants but with a few minor changes (higher rise, waist adjusters, slighlty smaller leg opening). Is sending my pants in my best bet? Given my recent complete failure with providing my own measurements for the test pants, I am very apprehensive of another failure. My wife would be even more apprehensive 😛

Nice! Can you kindly explain how you rectified these issues? My next order will include a popover and I just assumed to use my same standard shirt measurements. Or is the challenge specifically for pique fabrics? Thanks

You're better off sending in a pair of your own and making adjustments where needed.

Don't think of it as a creased cuffed cargo pant. Think of it as a dress pant with extra pockets. biggrin.gif

Seriously though, this style of trouser has revolutionized my travel and work life. There are so many situations where I'm in transit, seated in a train or car or plane or on a bench, and it's either too hot to have my coat on or it's hanging up somewhere or in an overhead bin. In those occasions I want to have easy access to my phone, tickets, etc. Those side pockets let me keep everything critical at hand.

There were many tweaks along the way, but generally since knits stretch you want to go slimmer in arms and torso than you would with a woven shirt. And if you're going to wear the garment untucked sometimes, err on the side of a little longer in the torso. After a couple of launderings if it tightens up a little, you won't mind it in the sleeves or torso (again, they'll stretch to accommodate you) but torso length is easier to shorten after the fact than lengthen.

It seems like my first order from Luxire will arrive tomorrow and I'm already planning for the next.

I'm looking to buy casual wool pants that could be used instead of chinos with a shirt or a pique. Does anyone have any recommendations?

@luxire Any updates? The two examples on your site are confusing in color. Thanks!


The fabric is blue and white. The greyish image has been removed. Thank you for bringing it to our notice.

Is the linen sale still active?

Long gone I believe, there was a post a while back in April from someone who missed it.

 

I think there was a summer sale in June/July last year, if there is again I'll be getting some shirts and some Autumn trousers.

Finally received my first pair of pants and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
Brisbane Moss Canvas. Is there anything obvious I should try to adjust for in the next order?

The shirt is from another place and I messed up a few measurements. I will definitely try a shirt from Luxire soon.

@luxire, what is the current lead time on email responses?  I sent something on Monday (5/23), and haven't heard back yet, but just want to make sure it didn't get lost.

 

Thanks!

I plan on ordering pants with side tabs and no belt loops but I do not want to wear braces. Do side tabs do a good enough job of keeping the pants on the waist?

Yes.
