The issue isn't necessarily the seat.  You can have a saggy seat and still have pocket flare.  Pocket flare is mainly due to the hip width.

Wow, thanks for that. While it won't stop me from ordering some of the same swatches just to be sure, it certainly helps with some of those fabrics like the khaki-navy twill whose name and picture on Luxire's site don't quite match my expectation.

Gather round linen lovers.

 

I want to have this following linen made, and Luxire have said that with "5 confirmed orders" they will be happy to make it.

Its a light grey and light blue stripe, on white.

I guess when/ if there is enough interest we'll suss out how to place the orders.

 

Need 4 more. Look at it, its lovely, I don't know how you could resist.

Do you have a better picture or one of just the fabric? Looks good there but can't tell the actual colors.

Unfortunately that's all I have to go on. Have just fixed above pic, should be very large now.

 

No estimate on price atm, I would assume it'd be about the $130 mark.

Does this mean I have to increase the hip width, even though the hips are not very tight IMO?

Anyone get any boxers made? How'd they turn out? I find that the elastic waistband's "tension" matters a lot of comfort, which can't be seen from pictures.

The white grey stripes linen is close, but I agree I like pattern in the picture better.

My shirt arrived and it's beautiful.  I asked for horizontal stripes.  Nice pattern matching.  

 

 

 

I love the collar.  I based this off a TM Lewin spread collar. 3.25" collar point.  6" spread.   1.75" collar height.  Unlined.  

 

 

The sleeve seam runs into the cuff in an odd way.  What's up with that?  

 

 

I wanted a hidden button gauntlet.  Luxire posted a picture of it and I asked for it.  The one they posted had a loop for the button as opposed to this.  I think this is too much fabric.  The buttons are nice, but too thick for my taste.  The buttons are shanked.  I'm fearful of them popping off.  

 

 

I asked for a one button convertible french cuff.  It works nicely.  In the future, I'm going to move the button hole up a little higher, make the cuff a little longer, and make the edge rounder ala Finamore.  

 

 

The seems are very nicely done and there is the famous tack.  

 

 

I've heard that it's not very important, but I find that shirts with split jokes fit me better.  

 

I'll post some fit pics later.

Shirt looks fine, but I would have opted to have the collars and cuffs still cut in the conventional manner.

It's very nice. Way to get an order that can show off Luxires talent.

All the shirts do that. I think it's really cool. Just another pleat, but at a very cool spot. One of the finer details I quite enjoy.

But you didn't get one on your shirt, it looks like?

 

My comments in red. Awesome stuff, man.

Don't get me wrong, I like Luxire.  But there are so many details to think about and it's on you to remember them all.  Modern Tailor has like four pages of options they make you fill out.  It's kind of annoying, but at least you remember.  I forgot to ask for the split yoke.  Next time.
