post #23611 of 23842
Just in case anyone's still not clear on the whole "Luxire can do anything" mantra: I asked them to make a knit top for a young woman with built-in fingerless gloves so that she can roll like a Dickensian street urchin. Nailed it.



Material: Grey uneven stripes jersey. Light weight and very stretchy.

Sweet! And weird!

Those are on my list for the F/W actually. Is the fabric more appropiate for outdoor wear or can they also be worn in the office?

They are pretty heavy (almost pea coat heavy) but I have worn them to the office in the northeast winter...

A pretty apt description for the recipient as well. Kids today, you know?

On a related topic, has @luxire ever done other women's clothing, like a dress, for any SFers? My wife needs something of better quality and I don't know anything about women's clothing.

They've done a couple dresses for my wife that turned out very well.  I would like for her to get more stuff from Luxire, but she doesn't like the whole custom process of imagining things and having them made.  She wants to see and try on an existing garment and then decide if she likes it.  I'm pretty much the opposite.  It generally takes me years to refine an idea in my mind and then try to have it realized.

It's also worth mentioning that women's clothes, like their wearers, are weird. They don't subscribe to our idea of getting the perfect shirt fit and then riffing on it, for instance. And even things like skirts, which look simple, have complex pleated floating linings that attach to the outer shell with stitches at the top and strings on the bottom and stuff.

I've been working on understanding it for a while and so far my only real successes for dames have been scarves and stretchy (read: forgiving) knits.

Thanks both of you for your input. I can see my wife being the same way. I was thinking about getting her some simple professional dresses and let her go crazy with the casual RTW stuff. She travels frequently for her job and always needs to replace things due to the lower quality fabric and construction she finds off the rack. I don't even know what women's RTW brands would be equivalent to the type of brands we tend to praise for menswear.

I'm a big time follower of this thread, small time poster.

 

I have two questions which I hope someone will be able to help with, when one specifies to "scoop out the seat" on trousers to eliminate the wedgie effect, what is that we're requesting exactly?

 

Is it adding more curve to the seat angle i.e more from a V seat angle to a U, or is it something else

 

Secondly when Luxire tells you to shorten the back length (not the rise), what aspect of the trousers is this changing?

 

 

Apologies if this has already been answered but I couldn't find an explanation of it.

 

Thanks in advance!

I recommend mailing your questions to Luxire.

 

Here's how Luxire explained "shortening the back length" when I asked them:

 

Quote Luxire:
This is done by removing fabric from just under the waistband. The fabric removed is like a triangle, one line being the base of the waistband at back, one being the back-rise and the third line joining the 2. The rest of the pants are adjusted to not adversely affect the length or the fit at the seat.

 

I believe your description of "scooping out the seat" is accurate.

I didn't mean to say that all women are like my wife.  Some certainly like to design things and get them made.  If your wife doesn't, you could do is send one or two of her favor garments to recreate in a different fabric.  Ideally something she doesn't wear much (off-season, something that has worn out, etc.).  That's what worked for my wife.

Great to hear! I know your travel program was on hold due to illness, is there any update on this as well?

 

Best,
