I guess, just like your shirts too had the special sleeve attachment, the seams on your sleeves too are turned around before joining the cuffs?
I would love to learn about the use of this feature and was not able to explain to Theresa what I meant.
A picture would be great help.

You mean this:

I'm not sure those pictures are right. Best ask Luxire.

I love the little pleat Luxire makes where the seam meets the cuff.

Did you make cuffs? Or is the last photo a buttoned cuff?


When I got my cuffed chinos, they had a buttoned cuff. Never seen one before.

Exactly! Thank you so much for taking the picture!
Does this feature have any practical use or does it merely show that the torso, the sleeve and the cuffs are all attached separately?

I like a clean seam where the fabric is folded and sewn together on the inside of the leg, just like in this picture of Luxire. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It looks a lot more elegant to me than for example a seam like in this Epaulet Rivet Chino where two rows of stiching run along the seam: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I required to have both the outside as well as the inside seam of the leg to be executed like in the picture of Luxire.
Unluckily the chino came with a seam like in the Epaulet one at the insides of the legs.

My question: Is it even possible to have the clean seam on both the outside as well as the inside of the leg? In case, how to properly address my wish?

Also am still curious about this.

Do you guys usually receive a confirmation mail when placing an order at Luxire? I received a paypal payment confirmation, but nothing from Luxire. That was 2 days ago.

Thanks.

 

Sincerely,

During arm movement stress, the seam will be less giving than the rest of the sleeve. By first attaching the sleeve the way we do and then the way the seam is tucked reduces the possibility of hitting that roadblock. Also increases the life of the shirt.

 

Almost no shirt-makers do these things anymore. Was a known practice among the regarded ones till a few decades ago.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the first photo is one of a proper cuff. It requires a lot of extra material - the end is hemmed as per normal, then folded back twice the height required of the cuff, then folded down again halfway and under and finished. You can then do a little stitching on the side seams to keep it up and in shape, and press it. Or, in the case with the high rise, brown linen pants, you can button it, which apparently Luxire does.

The bottom is simply folding the material back and leaving it like that - similar to what you'd do with selvedge jeans to show off the selvedge line. This is really just a rough cuff that would pass on chinos and jeans.

This is a nice blog by TTO. I do not say that because it features our pants today.

 

You do not have to be a fan of classic clothing to enjoy the beautiful selection of images.
 

But, if you are a fan, there is a lot to admire.

Fantastic, thanks a lot Luxire for explaining the sleeve seam/cuff pleat!

@althanis, please excuse my poor English and thank you a lot for your attempt of helping me.
I meant something else than the cuffs though.
I marked it in the pictures with a red circle.
On the Luxire pant the two rows of stitching, which seem to attach the additional layer of fabric on the inside of the Epaulet chino, is missing.
In my pair of Luxire chinos the outside seam was executed cleanly too, sadly the inside seam of the leg was executed the way Epaulet does it.

My question is, whether it is possible to have the clean seam both at the outside and the inside of the leg.
Also how is a seam like that called? This would be very useful to address my wishes more clearly in the future.

None of my pants have these seams, Luxire or otherwise.

 

If all your pants have them, including the ones made by Luxire, I think something supernatural is at work here, seriously!

Ammanati, is this the standard english spread collar from their site? I really like the way this looks.

I've always received a confirmation email on the five orders I've placed. I'd recommend sending them an email to check on your order.

If you just ordered a shirt 4 days ago, I wouldn't expect it to ship by tomorrow. I ordered my shirt 9 days ago and haven't received a shipping notice yet. They told me at the time of my order that new shirts were taking about 2 weeks, so hopefully mine will ship early next week.
