Thanks for the recommendations, particularly after a poplin rather than a chambray. Don't really mind transparent fabrics, will probably be ok with it I think.

Thanks, going to order it today!

 

Do you guys line the twill chinos?

I'd rate a neat par of chinos with a good crease as more formal than the moleskin. The fuzzy texture gives them a distinct "turtleneck&tweed" kind of vibe. They're almost like corduroy in a way.

I assume this may have been asked before, but I couldn't find it. I would like some trousers/pants but can Luxire do anything to help these fit my 'flat seat' and narrow hips? I don't think this is resolved simply be providing appropriate hip and thigh level measurements, as I have trousers with the same measurements in this area and some are baggy/flare and others do not. I assume it is about the cut and the 'fork shape' but, if so, is this beyond Luxire MTM to address?

They'll make a totally custom pattern if you can figure out the right adjustments to make. That latter bit is the troublesome one. Luxire will be happy to help adjust your measurements, but that iterative process can be a pain.


The best way is to get something tailored locally and then send it in to them to replicate. I have a couple patterns dialed in now, all starting from a garment I mailed in.

Thanks, that's interesting. I don't have a clue about how trousers are cut, but i guess there is something equivalent to how sleeve pitch works on a jacket. Many of my trousers don't hang nice and straight along the leg. Often my leg touches the front and the fabric doesn't hang cleanly and there is some excess of cloth at the rear.

@luxire

Do you have any pictures of pants made up of any of these Holland & Sherry tweeds (or anything similar)? I'm trying to work out the scale on pants. Are there any tweed sales coming up in the near future?

Hey! 

 

I just received a pair of slacks from Luxire that I helped my old man order, but unfortunately they don't fit as expected. The fabric and construction is great as usual, but would really appreciate some help in what can be done, in terms of alterations, or in worst case preventations for the next order.

 

We took the exact measurements from a pair of trousers that fitted well, but increased both the front and back rise + the total length. The result seems to be that instead of having a high-waisted trouser, the crotch sits too far down. A better way to describe it is that the trousers crotch sits lower than the bodies. I am thinking that this can be because of a moderate belly, that does not allow the trousers to sit on the natural hip. 

 

My second concern is the amount of fabric on the rear side of the thigh. It pulls and feels tight around the knee when walking, but there seems to be a lot of fabric around the thighs. Could the pulling be due to there not being enough fabric around the knee measurement?

 

Some help or pointers would be very much appreciated.

 

I or

You may want to re-post this in "The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alterations Suggestion".  You might have a better chance at one of the professional tailors catching it.

You probably want to 'scoop out the seat' or similar but the best way its to take good photos and email luxire with your order number. They know how their patterns work and will suggest changes that will sort it in a couple of iterations.

Thanks Patliean... I think the stand outs for me are the Rust and Racing Green. The Racing Green are fantastic in person. Such a lovely shade smile.gif

With that being said the two Dugdale greys are to close in color. They will be redundant, just throwing that out, for anyone considering them.

@kali77 with the Dugdale Fine Worsted did you get them lined? How soft do you find the fabrics to wear?
post #23820 of 24611
@homework I've had the coffee brown tweed for about 9mths, and its pretty good comfortable fabric. Good price for a cotton. It doesn't hold a crease and looks a little unkempt at the end of the day. So I iron before wearing. But still recommended.
