Wool herringbone I got from a local fabric store. Luxire has a darker herringbone that should be better.

I am looking for general feedback on the weight of the chino fabrics as well. It appears you have have Navy Summer Chinos at 160g, but I am somewhat concern that it might be too light and be more prone to wrinkles and not drape as well as compared to your medium/light weight chino fabrics (180-210g)???

Feedback from Luxire or others would be great. Ready to place my order once I figure this out.

yes, i did take body measurements. And yes, Luxire told me that they are using an algorithm to add inches to the customer's measurements. I think I could gain 60 pounds and the shirt would still be way to wide at the waist...even the sleeves are longer (about 1 inch) than my measurements...why in the world would Luxire adjust the sleeve measurements? So in my opinion the shirt was made incorrectly and I tried to contact the luxire customer service...and now they are saying that i have to pay for shipping the shirt back to India and then back again to my country...maybe I should measure and tweak an existing shirt but nevertheless I think Luxire's behaviour is not okay in this case.

Maybe Online MTM is not for you then.
Your complaints are invalid in my opinion.
I can understand that you are not satisfied with the product, but that's to be expected for a first time order.

As clap said, post pictures and get feedback here.
Also, a local tailor might be able to tweak the shirt so it fits.

I've got a pair made of the Cream Twill Chino at 180 to 210g and it is prone to wrinkling.
If the lightweight navy fabric is similiar, which is likely at an even lower weight, I would suggest to you to go with the heavier option Luxire offers.

Thanks. Will consider the heavier weight. I'm in Canada, so usually that's not an issue. However this past week has been very hot 32C+ and yesterday it hit 35C, with the humidity it feels closer to 45C. Just makes me want to place large order for linens and lightweight fabrics. That said, it'll probably last another week and we'll get back closer to our normal weather.

One can of course wear slightly heavier trousers without getting too hot much more so than jackets. It's the jacket that kills you in the heat in my experience.

Sleeves are longer so that when you reach out for something it won't pull back as much
The thing about body measurements is that they don't know how you want the shirt to fit. Someone might want it skin tight where another might want it more loose

That's why it's better to go off an existing shirts measurements IMO

Agreed, I have some pants that I wear year round, though this week I've been avoiding most of those as well and sticking to cotton or linen. Luckily I don't need to wear a jacket to work, but do prefer to wear one when it not too hot.

I would like to know if big inside cuffs are only used on pleated dress pants to add more weight and thus have a better drape or if it can (or should) be used in chinos as well?

Here's a shot of the Luxire shirts I have:

AppleMark

All of them are regular Luxire fabrics, except for the two seersuckers, which I bought at local (cheap) fabric shops. Still need to do the pants.

...
That's weird. I've never seen cuffs done like that on purpose. I wonder if the person first requested short pants with cuffs, then decided they were too short and unfolded the cuff to add length.

I don't think I've seen that done intentionally for that purpose, though I imagine the additional weight probably would help drape a little bit. In theory the extra fabric could also be used for cuffs if the wearer changes his mind.

This a real novice question. But can anyone tell me what type of collar is that on the shirts in these to pictures. and how do they get it to stand up like that.

There are a few components. One is the buttoning point. The higher up you button, the more it pulls the inside of the collar band in thus preventing the collar from spreading out. Another part is the height of the collar itself. Additionally, the jacket is what's keeping it neat and tidy. Without the jacket the collar would certainly open up more. Finally, it takes well fitting clothes to achieve this neatly.

 

As an example, those collars would probably look similar to this without the restraint of the jacket.
