If pants made some time ago were not satisfactory, do a fresh start.

Can suggest a trial order and ask us to make a new pattern. Also include fit images from previous pants, if previous pants are unaltered.

@luxire do you recommend having a new pattern made for the updated pants? Or can we continue to use previous order numbers?

Also I would like to officially put my vote in for Luxire to visit to NYC or Toronto.

I ordered some khakis. Belt-less and minimal as possible. First pair. I'll post pics when they get here.

 

It was these rave reviews on the forum that sold me!

I recently received a couple of the linen cotton canvas ones, which are my new favorite. They're weightier fabrics, but I get them unlined and they stay nice and cool in the Florida summer heat, drape excellently, and hold a crease nicely.

 

I'm little bit confused. You're saying that cotton-linen does not hold the crease well. But the cotton-linen canvas will hold it nicely? So the only one difference between these fabrics is the canvas?

The weave of a fabric makes a big difference in it's properties.

Will the crazy offer also apply to existing coat patterns?

If your pattern is set and you are happy with the fit, then review is not needed.

Yes, certainly will.

Guys, I'm considering having Luxury make me a pair of trousers for the fall. I am looking for a charcoal flannel fabric that is mid to heave weight (14+ oz) and NOT worsted but just woven. I prefer the fuzzy texture over the smooth texture of wasted. Can anyone direct me to a cloth that Luxire offers that fits these specs? To those of you who have had trousers made, what are your impressions of Luxire's fit and finish. Did they nail it right the first time for you? Thanks for your feedback.

I took the measurements of another pair of trousers that I like. I adjusted the length a bit. The fit was spot on straight away.

Assuming you mean WOOLEN flannel, rather than woven?

 

If so, Dugdale is a good choice, and not onerously expensive. Minnis is highly regarded as well...

The Dugdale 14 oz flannels on the Luxire website are not woolen, they are worsted. They are nice but not what you are looking for. In any case, unless you already have a pair of trousers that fit you very well that you can send in, I would recommend dialing in your pattern in a trial fabric first.

Does anyone know how to specify this exact collar from the photo to luxire?  It's a button down collar without a collar band.  Essentially, the collar rolls from the neck to the points in a single piece of fabric. One continuous line from his placket to his collar points - no collar band and no collar line pressed in, just one smooth line.  

 

Or if someone can tell me which collar from the excel sheet that can provide this exact collar (no button at the neck)... would be grateful. Thanks.

@Luxire --

 

Re: "One change we did was that we stopped making pants to supplied measurements. Pants pattern need a certain balance to fit well. Earlier, we would make the pants as ordered.

 

In the new process, if the pattern maker is unhappy about the proportions, we consult with the customer and suggest changes. Still unhappy, we may ask for images of the customer or of the pants he is measuring. Finally, we move with what we agree with the customer."

 

 

My apologies if I missed the explanation, but could you elaborate on the difference between making to measurements and a pattern?

 

I ordered my first pair of pants this spring, and then for subsequent orders have supplied all the measurements on the order page rather than referring to previous orders or "my pattern" or anything of the kind. Thankfully, they've all come out wonderfully. 

 

Do I have my own "pattern" at this point, and can I simply refer to previous orders when specifying build details (including measurement adjustments) rather than providing all the measurement info with each order?

 

 

Thanks.
