I don't have pic at the moment. If I can get around to it in the next few weeks I'll post one. The reason I commented on it was I didn't necessarily expect that and it was a bit of a surprise to me.

Styleforum Top Pickspost #2867 of 215956/10/13 at 11:08ampost #2868 of 215956/10/13 at 1:08pmI originally emailed Luxire looking for a pair of charcoal flannel trousers that I could wear casually. They only had two options listed on their website, a basic flannel in a 80/20 wool/poly blend that I couldn't bring myself to wear, and a Minnis flannel that was so gorgeous that I didn't want to waste it if they didn't turn out. I told them what I wanted, and the price range I was looking for and they replied that they had a Dugdale flannel that fit my needs that they would do for my desired price. Customer service was excellent, they responded to emails within 15 minutes every time but once, when I recieved no response, I resent it and recieved a reply in 10 minutes, it appears they have some issues with their email servers, as this has happened to a few poeple others here as well.I originally made an order on April 28th, and recieved my order on June 7th, about 5 weeks later. I took measurement from a bespoke pair, with a few tweeks to accomodate the split-waistband and buckle-back I wanted.I also sent pictures of the style I wanted for comparison. 3 days after I submitted my order, I emailed them wanting to tweek the length, which they did, replying with the updated measurements. Since it took so long to get to my order, I had a while to fret, so I changed the order one more time and then tried to forget about it.Now, as far as the quality review goes, I'm going to use Oxxford and Incotex as a comparison. Oxxford because their handwork is as good as anything on the RTW market, and Incotex because they're my go to for casual non-denim pants and can be found on sale in the same ~$200 price range.My initial impression was that they're awesome. Every measurement was exactly what I sent for. The flannel was beautiful and softer than I expected, the buttons were all horn, they were lined to the knee with rayon bemberg and the stress points were all nicely re-enforced. Incotex also has the lining, and a single horn button (zipper fly) and great fabric, with the addition of an extra piece of fabric inside the cuff to prevent wear, so while all of this was nice, it didn't necessarily reflect a huge improvement in an area besides fit and minor improvements in reenforcement of the pockets and waistband. I will specify a copy of the reenforcement on the Incotex trousers for my next order.The buttonholes on the pants are all absolutely perfect, they're the best I've seen on RTW that aren't handmade, they're considerably better than Incotex, but i can't compare them to Oxxford's which are all done by hand. The seam finishing is fantastic, they haven't spared any expenses in regard to the time and thread it takes to have a nice, dense surge. This is honestly the best I've seen, 16 stitches per inch on the surger, compared to 12 on the Incotex trousers, plus an extra straight stitch for added overkill. The gauge of the thread is slightly higher (thinner) than the Incotex, but it's Gutterman so I have no doubts as to it's quality and durability. Luxire claims on it's website to manufacture everything as 20 stitches per inch, but my average of three measurements was 16 SPI on the waistband, and 18 on the straight stitch of the leg. The cuff was finished on the inside by hand, but I was dissapointed to find that the cuffs are held up by a straight stitched along the seams, and not stitched down inside the cuff like Oxxford does. I have no cuffed pants from Incotex to compare, but I imagine they skip that step as well due to the time and difficulty it entails.I think the finishing job here really makes these stand out, there are a few area's where I'm still discovering the hand stitches (end of the waistband for instance). It's better than any trousers I've seen under ~$500. I'm going to make a couple adjustments next time, a slightly longer rise in the front and back and I'm going to switch from the frog pockets (which are super comfy but look a little cramped on my waist) to pockets on a slant. ~~Fit pics~~ quality is crap because I took them on a phone with a timer, but you get bonus fit-pics of one of the Real McCoy henleys. Any questions are welcome.post #2869 of 215956/10/13 at 1:54pmpost #2870 of 215956/10/13 at 2:00pmpost #2871 of 215956/10/13 at 5:56pmQuote:Originally Posted by CruzAzul
OK, here's a 2-for-1 of recent orders. This is a polo I ordered with a built-up custom collar like a dress shirt, made of the extremely nice white pique knit, and copper chinos with a cargo pocket. I emailed a picture of the type of pocket I wanted and they replicated it perfectly.
Very happy with both pieces but the cargo chinos in particular have been hugely useful for travel -- it's nice having a secure pocket for flat things like cards, bills and telephone.
Don't fall asleep on a train with your money in your cargo pockets... I speak from experience, and that was in Holland.post #2872 of 215956/11/13 at 1:05pmpost #2873 of 215956/11/13 at 2:03pmpost #2874 of 215956/11/13 at 7:18pmpost #2875 of 215956/11/13 at 10:29pmThread Starter
Even though our order form marks the phone number field with a * as mandatory, some people choose to skip that, which at times results in delays in Fedex delivering the packet.
Please make sure you provide your phone number while ordering. It is not shared with anyone and only provided to Fedex for the delivery of your shipment, in case there are any issues.post #2876 of 215956/12/13 at 12:16ampost #2877 of 215956/12/13 at 12:44amQuote:
Most people look great in a nice, subtle single forward pleat if the pants have a higher rise. I have broad hips, rear and thighs so pleats have benefited me immensely, to the point where I pleat everything apart from denim.Quote:
3.5" for a great collar roll for me. Anything between 3-4 will be fine for rolling, it's a matter of if it's unfused and unlined which will help get a great roll.post #2878 of 215956/12/13 at 12:49ampost #2879 of 215956/12/13 at 1:18am
