In their defense I had an email conversation with Theresa on a Sunday morning a few weeks ago, and that tells me that they were probably quite busy at the time and using the weekend to catch up. She answered several of my emails that morning with answers to all my questions.

I'll throw this theory out there and see what people think: Re-Work of orders is likely to have a significant impact on their capacity and completion times.  I worked in manufacturing  for over a decade and I can tell you that re-work is a capacity/capital/resource killer. It would explain the variation in turnaround times at different timeframes.

Hey joewmoss,

 

jepp, that might explain how sometimes in general turnover times are longer

.

However, I don't think it explains entirely the very different time frames some member experience while ordering more or less at the same date, or even the much longer completion by member ordering even earlier (for example MattR and Amontillado). Or did you mean that re-work/adjustments in general take longer (I never worked in production, so not too much experience here on that subject)?

 

But as long as the product is great, I can live with a longer completion time.

I would just liked to be informed somehow. :)

 

Cheers, Erik

 

Btw.: I will be in San Diego a couple of days end of next week. Anything I should visit apart from the aircraft carrier and zoo? :)

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback. Do you have any suggestion as to finding the optimal angle? I actually instructed Luxire to rotate the sleeves on that shirt as per Theresa but it didn't seem to help. Either that, or they just missed the little note at the end of the order with those instructions.

It's my first order, thus it might take longer. But considering they only charged the money from my credit card last week it seems that they started to work on the order only last week..

Hello Kayhill,

Nice trousers, great color. A bit too short for me, but that's individual taste.

One thing though, not related to the trouser but the t-shirt. You might consider wearing a light grey t-shirt under this particular white shirt to avoid it showing through the fabric.

Cheers,

Erik

Spanx for men or no undershirt. That's the way I roll...

OK, while I wait to get Luxire's input, I thought I'd ask for input from the folks here.

I ordered a pair of pants in copper chino recently as a test pair before ordering a bunch of flannels. I love them. However, they are not hanging cleanly, particularly in the back. Need to figure out what to tweak with Luxire.

My first thought is lowering the back rise, probably by a full inch. Other thoughts?

Apologies for the wrinkles, etc, these are just out of the box. They fit quite well aside from the hanging issue in the back, though I will probably make the flannel ones a tad wider through the leg.

check out the tailor alterations thread. There's been several other posters with similar issue. I have the same but not as pronounced. It doesn't sound like a trivial fix though.
post #5891 of 12490
Yeah, I am posting there as well, just wanted to see if there was anything folks here might have to say about it--I believe a couple of others have had similar issues.
post #5892 of 12490
I meant to read up a page or two on the tailors thread. I believe two others there have posted with similar issue recently. But it sounds like it's hips forward issue and flat seat which I think makes it worse. I have a bit of hips forward stance, but a prominent seat so it's not as bad.

Ahhh, gotcha. Will do some digging. Thanks.

Not sure if something is up with luxire's email, I have not received a shipping notification however 1 of my shirts has already made its way to me.

Thanks Eric.

 

I will give that a try, though the shirt is a cotton linen blend and fairly see-through.
