Luxire, the collar is lined but unfused, right?

Also, just like clapeyron would love to see a group picture of all the buttons available for pants and jackets.
Do you offer YKK zipers?

It is light and fused.

 

The group photo will be outdated in no time. But, will try to present a picture of the current options.

 

Yes, zippers are YKK.

I am looking at ordering a pair of wool trousers for winter. My last pair of chinos fit decently well, but a bit too much BULGE when I sit down or when I'm walking, there is excess fabric... Is this generally an issue of too much FRONT rise?
post #5391 of 14447
^^ Well are you wearing your high rise pants too low? I think it's pretty obvious for most guys to figure out if there is enough room in the crotch when you sit down. When's there's too much, well you'll feel like your pants are hang from your the top of your thighs when you walk.

I don't think so. I think I am wearing them where they are meant to be worn. They fit well in the back, too much in the front..
My first pair is a 11" front, 17" back. Too tight in the crotch when I sit. The second are 12", 18" and too big. Perhaps 11/18 is what i need

So my shirt came in today but it's too tight in the torso. I want to send it back for alterations and I know I'll have to pay for the return shipping and alterations, but has anyone else been hit with any duties fees when returning?

Sounds like you are converging onto a solution...it's easy to overshoot either way with online MTM.

Wow sold on a pair of twill chinos, they look good.

 

Thanks to Luxire to, got my second order, very pleased as usual.  Thanks for the linen samples as well, some blue linen shirts and apparently some twill chinos will be ordered in the next cpl of days once I work out how much length to shave off for the linen shirts (want more of a casual look, going to try to find the sweet spot where I could have them untucked with jeans or tucked in with trousers on casual days.

 

Can't see any on the site but do you have or can you get in any dark or medium purple cloth? 

post #5396 of 14447
Would such a sweet spot exist? It was to my understanding that if it's short enough to be untucked it would come untucked. Conversely, if it's long enough to tuck, it would be weird untucked.

I have dress shirt lengths and casual shirt lengths. I suppose it comes down to what each person deems acceptable but I do not have a sweet spot. I love my dress shirts long so they never untuck.
post #5398 of 14447
I have a sweet spot with my shirts. My most recent shirt had some issues, still waiting to hear back from Luxire about a remake, but the length was short enough to be worn untucked and long enough that it will stay tucked in. It works for me because I don't like my dress shirts too long. As long as they're slim enough through the torso with darts in the back, they stay tucked in for me without being too long.

Ok guys

I took these pictures really quickly when I got home. Yes I know my mirror is dirty and I"m not an expert on taking pictures (selfies) in the bathroom mirror.

I never wear a suit or even a jacket for work so my apologies if my posture or hand isn't correct. Someone wanted to see my shirt picture earlier in this thread but the light is really bright so you can't tell the fabric really well. I'm happy with the color and fit

Fabric is
